The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) is pleased to offer a unique 2017 desktop calendar featuring student artwork.
Student Expressions 2017 is a full-color desk calendar that showcases paintings, sketches, collages and more crafted by students from SCOE's outdoor education, special education, and court/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.
More than two dozen works of art are featured in the calendar, selected from pieces submitted for consideration 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.
Checks should be made payable to SCOE and mailed with a completed order form to:

Calendars are also available for purchase in person during normal business hours at SCOE's David P. Meaney Education Center: 10474 Mather Boulevard, Mather, CA. (SCOE will be closed November 23–25 for Thanksgiving and December 26–January 2 for winter break.) For additional information, phone (916) 228-2416.
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.
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.
