The goal is to inspire students to write as many poems as possible. Winners will be drawn at random. All work MUST BE ORIGINAL and composed by the student entering. Learn more about Sacramento Poetry Day here.
Get tips and information to have a conversation with your student about Fentanyl and the dangers of street pills. Also, learn about emergency Narcan availability in our schools. We have important updates from our Health Services Department here, including ways to schedule a COVID booster and/or flu shot (or find a walk-in clinic).
Congratulations, Mr. Rodríguez!
Lathisms was founded in 2016 in order to showcase the contributions of Latinx and Hispanic mathematicians during Hispanic Heritage Month, which is celebrated in the United States from September 15 and October 15 every year.
