Classrooms get digital upgrades

Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District continued its digital classroom project, funded by Measure E, over the summer with the installation of new technology in about 90 classrooms at Heritage Oak Elementary School, Antelope Meadows Elementary School and Dry Creek Elementary School. These classrooms now have flat-panel televisions, LCD projectors, document cameras and InterWrite pads.

Krispy Kreme seeks donations of school supplies

The "Stuff the Bus" campaign is a partnership between Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and the Salvation Army and involves the collection of school supplies for local students and runs through Sept. 9. Notebooks, binders, pens, pencils, scissors, hand sanitizer and backpacks are needed. Items can be dropped off at Krispy Kreme at 10317 Fairway Drive in Roseville. Supporters receive one free original glazed doughnut for a single school supply item donation and one free original glazed dozen for each donation of a backpack that has school supplies inside.

Dry Creek continues attendance incentive

To increase student achievement, Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District will continue its attendance incentive program this school year. Last year, the district saw a 2 percent increase in attendance, which equates to additional state funding for educational programs. All students who maintain perfect attendance during each reporting period will be eligible for a prize drawing, which may include a laptop, bicycle, Wii or PlayStation. The district seeks prizes and sponsorships for the program. For information on how to contribute, call (916) 770-8875.
