April 29 Literacy Symposium to Address Achievement Gap

April 29 Literacy Symposium to Address Achievement Gap

According to a 2013 Annie E. Casey Foundation report on why reading by the end of third grade matters, “children who do not read proficiently by the end of third grade are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma than proficient readers.”  How does this affect us in Yolo County?  This question will be addressed in a community “Call to Action” on April 29, 2:00-5:00 p.m. at the Yolo County Office of Education Conference Center, located at 1280 Anita Court, Suite 120 in Woodland. 

Yolo County Superintendent of Schools Jesse Ortiz and Yolo County Librarian Patty Wong are working together to bring attention to the issue of low literacy.  This symposium will be the first step in creating a county wide action plan.  Community and civic leaders from all backgrounds are invited to attend the symposium and learn what we can do in Yolo County to give our children the tools they need to succeed in school and in life.

Open Garden in the Sacramento Old City Cemetery

The gardens of the Historic City Cemetery will be in full bloom during our annual Open Garden. The fragrance of the old roses of the award-winning Historic Rose Garden will fill the air as 500 roses clamber up trees, cover archways and bloom on big shrubs in this unique 19th century setting.  Perennial and native plant gardens will also be featured. The day begins with a sale of rare heritage rose plants and continues with free tours of the gardens and cemetery, a Silent Auction, and sales of rose merchandise.

The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. Free parking is available in the lot at 10th & Broadway, across the street from the 10th Street entrance.  Tours are free; however, donations and proceeds will benefit cemetery preservation projects.
