Local high school in national contest needs your help!

Franklin High School Percussion in Elk Grove has been nominated for a brand new custom-designed floor tarp. This is a wonderful opportunity as the cost of a new tarp is nearly $3000 and a new floor tarp is badly needed.  The winner of the 'Teams for Tarps' contest gets a free tarp and the first two runners up get 50% off of a tarp.

The students are crazy excited about this opportunity.  Please take a minute and watch the student's youtube video they put together.  It is amazing and shows how much the program means to them.  The students' video can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxGvmkyb41s

New Beginnings / Back to School Blues + Red Hot School Supplies

My oldest little guy is starting first grade in just a couple of weeks. To say that we all have mixed emotions about this would be an understatement. If you follow me on instagram, you might remember this from earlier in the year. Well this year will officially mark the first time he is away at school all day, for five days of the week. It will be the first time he begins his day in the morning rather than the afternoon and the first time he takes the bus to school. He is not excited for any of these things aside from riding the bus, somehow that is exciting to him. I guess I can see why for a guy his age.
