Greenhills gets $1,000 for reading program

The Rotary Club of Granite Bay recently donated $1,000 to Greenhills Elementary School to support the All School Reads program. Started by Principal Peter Towne and former reading teacher Carol Sue Acres, the program encourages every student at Greenhills to read the same book together.

Students are assigned chapters each week and parents are asked to read to their children to keep up with the schedule. Towne reads the final chapter in a school-wide assembly. The Rotary’s donation will allow Greenhills to provide a copy of this year’s book to each of the roughly 500 students on campus.

School service clubs clean up bike path

Kiwanis Club of Roseville’s two youth-sponsored service clubs recently joined forces to clean up the bike path between two local schools and the park behind the Roseville Aquatics Complex. Woodcreek High School’s Key Club and Silverado Middle School’s Builders Club plan to implement more joint projects in the future that benefit the schools and larger community.

William Jessup raises roughly $120,000 for scholarships

William Jessup University’s seventh annual university fund dinner Nov. 12 raised more than $120,000 for scholarships, which is a 60 percent increase from the 2010 event.

The event honored Bob Reeve and Joe Knight, founders of Reeve Knight Construction Inc., with the 2011 Faith and Service Award for their philanthropic, leadership and service-based activities throughout the region.

“It was truly a phenomenal evening to see our surrounding community come together to honor these exemplary men and to recognize the importance of Christ-centered higher education in our region,” said Jessup’s Vice President of Development Eric Hogue, in a news release.

The Rocklin university has awarded more than $5.5 million in aid for students so far this year.

Woodcreek High School hosts food drive

Woodcreek High School’s leadership class recently hosted a food drive to benefit people in need this holiday season. They are also competing for $3,000 in prize money from the Lindsay Olives’ Santa Cause contest, which will be awarded to the youth group that collects the most food for local food banks. The donation must be delivered by Dec. 20.
