SCIP and the Youth Service Unit wrapped up another great week and I can’t tell you how excited I am for students in the Arden-Arcade area. I am sure school staff will share my sentiment.
Last Sunday (May 19th), we took approximately 60 students and school staff to Positive Altitude, out at the Sacramento Jet Center (Sac International Airport). What a great day we had. You can view photos at our Facebook page SACSCIP. Positive Altitude is an outreach program of the California Capital Airshow, coming to Mather, California October 5th and 6th. This is the second year SCIP has been involved with Positive Altitude and I can’t say enough about the enthusiasm and community support Darcy Brewer (Executive Director) and Bruce Boehm have shown our students and staff. If you get a chance, I really encourage you to check out the Facebook and Airshow links.
Deputy Friend was at Whitney Elementary on Thursday (May 23rd), along with the Sheriff’s Youth Services Unit, Miss Simone (YSU’S official hound), and Dash (Sheriff’s K9 from the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center). Deputy Friend once again had Deputy Sheriff / Pilot Fred Links land STAR8 onto the campus of Whitney Elementary for a show-n-tell. Take a look at the photos and the story as captured by the Sacramento Bee. A big thanks to Deputy Links, all of the Whitney staff (and their great students), the Sheriff’s Department, and of course, to Kaiser Permanente, for their dedication to helping the Sheriff reduce juvenile crime and violence in Sacramento County.
Of course, we had so many other great things going on… Our boxing gym is finished; We had Tennis Playday; Our flag football team is preparing to compete in a tournament… Just to name a few.
