Green-Hair Principal Rewards Wire Elementary Students

Green-Hair Principal Rewards Wire Elementary Students

Sacramento -- Wire Elementary students in South Sacramento enjoy a "Healthy Breakfast" treat while celebrating a victory with Principal Bao Moua, who dyed her hair green because students read 51,717 book pages during the school's Read-A-Thon. Principal Bao promised to dye her hair green if students read 40,000 book pages by the end of March. Apparently, students eagerly read 25% more than required to see their principal with green hair. In this case, reading connects Wire's 460 students to fun and knowledge!

Smile Keepers Promotes Healthy Teeth Program For Pre-Schoolers

Smile Keepers Promotes Healthy Teeth Program For Pre-Schoolers

Sacramento -- Smile Keepers' volunteers greet dozens of families needing information about providing proper dental health care at SCUSD's recent School Readiness Fair at The Serna Center.

Specializing in pre-school age children, Smile Keepers says parents must be aware that "baby" teeth are very important for developing proper speech, maintaining spaces and gaps for adult teeth and, of course, chewing food. Baby teeth that decay and become infected can damage the growth of adult teeth, often resulting in crooked teeth needing braces. Smile Keepers is funded by tobacco taxes through the First 5 Sacramento Commission.

For more information, contact www.first5oralhealth.org or call 916-876-5875. Smile Keepers reminds parents that if their children have Medi-Cal, Healthy Families or Healthy Kids insurance, they likely have dental care coverage.

School Readiness Fair A Big Hit At SCUSD

School Readiness Fair A Big Hit At SCUSD

Sacramento -- Fun activities abound to assist parents with preparing their children, as well as themselves, for healthy beginnings in the Sacramento City Unified School District. The Serna Center was filled with representatives from many elementary schools, pre-schools, resource centers, the Crocker Art Museum and the Girl Scouts. Dozens of volunteers dedicated time on Saturday to assist parents and children with information ranging from car seat safety to proper nutrition to early learning development. Children engaged in fun stuff such as story telling, a puppet theater and face painting. A recent change in district policy now permits open enrollment in elementary schools, which encourages parents to shop for the best school meeting each child's learning and social needs. The Sacramento Public Library had its "Wanderer Bookmobile" available with a variety of children's books enticing reading.
