Good morning, Rosemont! Did you know that this week is Sun Safety Week? It’s true! Check out the Sun Safety Alliance for more information, including daily safety tips. I don’t think we have to worry much about sun on this cloudy (and possibly wet) Monday, but the weather will be taking a turn for the warmer soon. Today, you can keep in-the-know of all the budget happenings, help out at a PTO meeting, take your knitting to the library for some company, learn how you can host an overseas student over the summer or let your kid read to dogs.
- The Sacramento County Budget Hearings begins today. The Board of Supervisors will hear the proposed budget beginning at 9:30 a.m., looking to cut more than $90 million dollars. If you want to know what’s going on with the hearings, but can’t take a day off to check it out, don’t worry. Patch will be blogging live during the whole budget process this week. Check out our and keep informed of what your county is up to.
- The PTO meeting is also today! Stop by the school between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. to find out how you can help the school raise money. PTO meetings are held on the first Monday of each month.
