Thanks to Jennifer Kimsey and Project Linus, kindergarten and first grade students at John Bidwell, John Sloat and Caroline Wenzel elementary schools received stuffed animal “reading buddies” and hand-knit hats.
Students promised to read to their buddies every night, keep them warm and learned the importance of staying warm as we transition from fall to winter.
Members of the Assistance League of Sacramento visited John Bidwell, John Sloat and Caroline Wenzel elementary schools this spring to provide their “History in a Trunk” presentation.
Dressed in heritage school teacher costumes, the Assistance League engaged the fourth graders in a hands-on lesson about California history through the lens of the old Governor’s Mansion, now a museum.
Following the presentation, each fourth grade class participated in the California Heritage Essay Contest.
This program will give students the opportunity to participate in meaningful and engaging activities through a project based learning program to strengthen their literacy, math, social science, healthy eating, physical activity, and artistic skills. Free breakfast and lunch provided daily. Program includes Field Trips, performances, and an end of the summer community celebration!

Elspeth “Beanie” Mar and Anthony Roy Jr. were honored by SCUSD’s Board of Education on Friday as “Stellar Students” for their quick-thinking and bold actions that may have saved the life of fellow Caroline Wenzel Elementary School first-grader Aniyah Rigmaiden. When Aniyah was choking on an apple at lunch, Anthony told others and Beanie performed the Heimlich maneuver, which she learned from Disney Channel sitcom “A.N.T.
The heroic actions of three Caroline Wenzel Elementary School first-graders have led to an invitation to visit the Los Angeles set of the kids’ sitcom “A.N.T. Farm” – courtesy the Disney Channel. Last week, first-grader Aniyah Rigmaiden began to choke on a piece of an apple at lunch in the school’s cafeteria. Anthony Roy Jr. noticed that Aniyah was turning red and grabbing her throat. He yelled “Aniyah’s choking!” which prompted Elspeth “Beanie” Mar, also a first-grader, to perform the Heimlich maneuver on her friend, successfully dislodging the apple.
Caroline Wenzel Elementary School had two big events last Friday. To kick off STAR testing, Kenny Lee Lewis, lead singer and bass player for The Steve Miller Band, performed for students at a spirit assembly, fittingly themed “Rock the STAR.” Mr. Lewis is an alumnus of Sutterville Elementary School, Sam Brannan Middle School and C.K. McClatchy High School (Class of ‘72). He is pictured here with Wenzel’s Principal Judy Montgomery.
Elementary, middle, and high school students are assigned to a designated neighborhood school based on where the student lives, as long as the school offers the services the student needs. Each neighborhood school has a defined geographic boundary and is intended to serve the students who live within that geographic boundary.
