To the best of anyone’s knowledge, this is the first time that Golden Empire has ever been closed during the regular school year. The outage lasted over 36 hours after a transformer went down and the school was closed for two days. Of course, this was all triggered by the rain and high winds from Wednesday’s storm.
The Capitol Region Distinguished Service Award recipient for the 2016-17 academic year is Mr. Robert Snider from Golden Empire Elementary School in Sacramento City USD. Robert is a GATE Certificated teacher and has taught the GATE cluster at his school for 5+ years. Robert will be recognized for his service at the Annual CAG conference in San Diego.
Golden Empire is excited about receiving a five year grant which allows them to become a Leader In Me school. The grant, valued at $90,000, emphasizes the 7 Habits from Stephen Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
Here are the 7 habits along with a quick summary of each:
1. BE PROACTIVE: You’re in Charge
2. BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND: - Have a Plan
3. PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST - Work First, Then Play
