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.

I loved seeing the whole gang again including Goodfellow and the cat . I could feel and understand Ethan's pain though out the novel. I do want to see what happens with the forgotten and the fey.

Book Review= B+
