The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) is pleased to offer a special 2016 desktop calendar featuring the unique art of students.
Student Expressions 2016 is a full-color desk calendar which showcases paintings, sketches, collages and more crafted by students from 13 Special Education and Community School programs throughout Sacramento County. The calendar is packaged in an acrylic stand (5" x 5") for convenient and attractive display on a desktop or table.
The 34 works of art featured in the calendar were finalists from among more than 80 nominations submitted by SCOE teachers. Student artists range in age from preschool through young adult.
The Student Expressions calendar is available for $8, plus $2 postage ($4 postage if ordering three or more calendars). Proceeds from calendar sales benefit arts education programs at SCOE campuses.
Calendars are available for purchase in-person during normal business hours at SCOE’s David P. Meaney Education Center: 10474 Mather Boulevard, Mather. (SCOE will be closed December 24–January 1 for winter break.)

Arts opportunities for SCOE students are numerous. Students select and memorize poems to compete in the national "Poetry Out Loud" recitation contest, are exposed to music and drama performances, produce videos, and create art in the classroom. With the assistance of visiting artists and representatives from community arts partners, students learn to express themselves, develop fine motor skills, and put into practice abstract concepts such as math and spatial reasoning.
SCOE's 2012, 2013, and 2014 Student Expressions art calendars all received statewide awards from the California School Public Relations Association (CalSPRA). The 2011 Student Expressions calendar earned CalSPRA's prestigious California Gold Award.
The Student Expressions calendar is produced by the SCOE Communications Office and Printing and Production Services, with the participation of SCOE students, teachers, paraprofessional educators, support staff, and administrators.
