Podcast Episode 5: Staying Connected with our Classified Staff and Parents/Volunteers
Staying SEL:Connected in Sac City Podcast
Some of the most impactful voices from the frontlines of distance learning are those of our beloved Classified staff and volunteers in our Sac City community. This week, we check in with a Classified staff who serves many roles for Pacific Elementary and her husband. Juanita Fred is the Walking Attendant/Noon Time Duty Monitor and PTA President, and her husband Reed Fred is a regular volunteer and current caretaker of Pacific’s community garden. Juanita and Reed have been going to Pacific Elementary regularly to tend to the garden, and specifically, they’ve taken on a special memorial garden that they are taking care of with loving attention. They are also parents to a 7th grader at Fern Bacon Middle School. We will chat with them about their many roles supporting our district during the school closure and their experience navigating Covid 19. We will also share the SEL Competency of the Week- Responsible Decision Making- and a practical tip for practicing SEL.
