With tasty, cold ice cream and warm smiles, classified employees of the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) were honored on May 21 at what has become an annual tradition: an afternoon ice cream social.
Members of the Superintendent's Cabinet scooped frozen treats into bowls and cones for employees as a gesture of thanks and appreciation for the contributions of education employees.
In a message to SCOE's classified employees, Superintendent Gordon wrote, "On behalf of the Board of Education and the SCOE Cabinet, I would like to extend our heartfelt and personal thanks to you for all of the contributions that you make as a valued member of our education team. We greatly appreciate the outstanding service that you provide to our students, their families, and to the entire Sacramento County community. It is because of your dedication and hard work that we are making a real difference in the lives of our students."
