Normal Day At COHS

A scare at Cosumnes Oaks High School turned out to be nothing on Wednesday………Some students there said another student had made threats-----some said he was going to bring a gun others said he mentioned something about a little boy would be coming out but while the threats weren’t clear the administration was clear in its’ response……Principal Patrick McDougal made an announcement on the PA system and parents were notified ----turned out that Wednesday was just another day on the campus of COHS----thankfully.

Franklin High School Percussion

Some students in Elk Grove are asking for your help-----Franklin High School Percussion is trying to get a brand new custom designed floor tarp that usually costs close to $3000………The team has been nominated in a “Teams for Tarps” contest where the winner gets a free tarp and the two runners up get as much as 50% off a tarp…….The students have put together a video to drum up support---you can see it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxGvmkyb41s …..The way the contest works is the students need votes through people’s Facebook account------only one vote per account so if you get the word out the will get more votes……To cast your vote go to http://a.pgtb.me/VpB2WC/gz5CC?w=27488576&e=67114054  and click 'vote' for Franklin High School!  It takes less than a minute to give the students a chance for an amazing floor!

Dr. Steven Ladd's Last Day

This Friday marks the end of an era for the Elk Grove Unified School District----Superintendent Dr. Steven Ladd will step down from his post after 9 years with the district………His term at the top was a tough one as he had to deal with severe budget cuts, layoffs, and furloughs while still serving more than 62,000 students----the fifth largest district in the state…..His replacement has yet to be announced but the process is well underway.
