It was a good month for winning at tennis, being a junior golfer, marking the journey from kindergarten to high school, writing a winning essay and planning a garlicky event. Catch up with your neighbors here.


Classmates forever


They've spent most of their lives together, starting with kindergarten at Cosumnes River Elementary, continuing through Katherine L. Albiani Middle School, and so, at the start of their senior year at Pleasant Grove High School,  these long-time classmates got together at the new CRES campus to mark the occasion.

Girls and golf go together

Niners girls

Rancho Murieta Niners Club hosted the Women's Nine-hole Golf Association's annual Corena Green Classic for girls at the Country Club this month, and 108 girls between the ages of 8 and 17 competing for college scholarships of up to $700. The Rancho Murieta Niners sponsored 16 players.  After a morning of golf, the girls joined parents and club members for the awards lunch in the Murieta Room.  "Every year it gets bigger and better," said event chair Diane Davey of the tournament, which is in its 20th year. The tournament was one of several held at the club this month for young golfers.


Award-winning essayist


Brooke Johnson begins her college career with a $1,000 scholarship from Entertainment, Theatre and Culture presented by Mike Mann, ETC president at an ETC concert. Brooke wrote the winning entry in this year's essay contest. The topic was, "With the current serious budgetary difficulties facing our schools, is it important to support arts education and the arts in our communities?"

The new CRES campus is absolutely beautiful (shown in the photo above), however, what has  turned out class after class of students that excel in life is not the building itself, it's the devoted parents, and educators.  I've been here over 20 years and the amount of parent involvement at all grade levels here is astonishing.  We've also been so blessed with all the educated and caring teachers at each and every level.  It's such a blessing to be able to enroll our children in such a caring environment and watch them develop to strong/ educated young men and women.
