Raymond Case Elementary School Presents Disney's Aladdin Jr.

I sit in Raymond Case Elementary School multipurpose room ready to see Disney's Aladdin, Jr presented by the Raymond Case Drama Club. It's a full house. The lights dim to a beautiful made set of the marketplace Agrabah and palace where Princess Jasmine (played by Alex Taniguchi) is ready to battle with her dad the Sultan (played by Kevin Bali). The costumes, makeup and props are of a broadway show caliber. I think, "this is not an amateur musical" as the genie enters played by Annika Tamaki dressed in blue foundation asking if her pants make her look fat. The music and singing are excellent and the crowd cheers, laughs and comes to there feet as the final act ends.~~Janine King

EGUSD receives $50,000 grant for Digital Media Academy at Pleasant Grove

The Elk Grove Unified School District has received a $50,000 Specialized Secondary Programs (SSP) grant to be used to enhance the Digital Media Academy at Pleasant Grove High School (PGHS).  SSP grants help school districts develop innovative programs to help students learn and develop real-world, 21st-century skills.  These programs can cover a variety of subjects, including English language arts, math, science, history/social science, foreign language and visual/performing arts.  The programs may include Linked Learning pathways, career academies and arts-integrated models.

With the SSP grant, PGHS will build a sequence of two new animation courses and two new academic core classes integrated with career technical education (CTE). The PGHS Digital Media Academy’s goal is to develop a two-year animation sequence.  The academy will offer Animation I beginning with the 2014-2015 school year.
