The ice cream was cold, but the smiles were warm as the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) honored classified employees at an afternoon reception on May 21. Members of the Superintendent’s Cabinet served frozen treats for employees as a gesture of thanks and appreciation for the contributions of school and education employees.

During its May 5 meeting, the Sacramento County Board of Education adopted a resolution proclaiming May 17–23, 2015 as “Classified School Employee Week” in Sacramento County. Classified employees are vital staff, frequently working behind the scenes as they provide administrative, technical, and operational support for education programs and services. 

In a message to SCOE’s classified employees, Sacramento County Superintendent of Schools David W. Gordon said, “On behalf of the Board of Education and the SCOE Cabinet, I would like to offer our warmest 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 our 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.”
