BloodSource honors Antelope, Woodcreek high schools

Two campuses in the Roseville Joint Union High School District were recently honored for their blood drives, by BloodSource, a nonprofit organization formed in 1948. Antelope High School was recognized as achieving the most registered donors for a medium-size campus throughout the greater Sacramento region. Antelope was also honored for having the greatest increase of participants over last year. Woodcreek High School activities director and leadership teacher Kim Bair received recognition for her five years of service as a blood drive adviser.

Dry Creek earns $48,000 energy rebate

Roseville Electric representatives presented the Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District board of trustees with a rebate check for $48,000 on Oct. 4. Roseville Electric and the district installed new energy-efficient HVAC equipment and controls at Heritage Oak Elementary School this summer. In addition to the rebate, the district will save an estimated 29,400 kWh a year, which equates to a $3,000 reduction in the district’s total annual energy costs. This constitutes about 5 percent of the total electric bill.

Over the last several years, Roseville Electric and the district have worked together at Heritage Oak Elementary School to implement several energy saving strategies, including lighting retrofits, a cool roof system and occupancy sensors to improve the learning and teaching environment and reduce energy costs.
