Pacific Elementary’s Student Council receives GABY grant

e-Connections Post Pacific

Pacific Elementary School’s Student Council recently applied for and received a Grants Advisory Board for Youth (GABY) Grant.GABY supports youth in learning about giving, serving and taking action on issues that are important to the community.

On February 2, three representatives from the Student Council attended the GABY Convening event at City Hall.

The students participated in ice breaker and networking activities with other Sacramento area youth who also received the grant, and they presented the Pacific Peace & Play program to their peers. 

The Peace & Play program includes anti-bullying classroom presentations and organized games during lunch recess once a week. Because youth must draft the grant, Student Council had the opportunity to practice their writing skills in making a case for the need for the program at Pacific.
