Your Wednesday, October 26 Sac City Scroll

Dear Sac City Unified families,

Did you know that today is Sacramento Poetry Day? Here’s an excerpt of a poem by a Sacramento poet, April Walker, to celebrate: 

“We all have our own inner rainbow!

I am thankful for our healing light.

Let us shine, in our own way, oh so bright! 

And remember you’re an artist, so let it flow! 

Feel your power and say, ‘I AM A RAINBOW!’”

Below are some reminders and upcoming events. You can also follow us on social media to stay updated about what’s happening in our community. Find us on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and LinkedIn
