In this class we watch a 3-minute video of a 10-year-old chef making a peanut butter and apple sandwich. Why would she use apples instead of jelly? Students learn about nutrition while making a sunflower butter and apple sandwich by following a recipe. We’ll read Brownie and Pearl Grab a Bite by Cynthia Rylant.

Pocket Parade
I have to say, this year’s 4th of July Pocket Parade was the most successful I have attended. We had a record number of parade participants, great vendors, a marching band, and fantastic food. A group of people, who for months have worked behind the scenes to make this event happen, I personally want to thank. Pastor Mike Higley at Riverside Wesleyan Church and his staff did an amazing job with coordinating volunteers and parade entries. Brenda Williams who did a great job with the vendor fair, making sure everyone was organized and hydrated. Kathy Garcia and Linda Pohl who led the charge on the parade did outstanding work, as usual. I also want to take a moment to thank my staff, Dinah Fischer, Noah Painter, and Christopher Zazueta worked hard to make sure that the details we all do not see were addressed. Another Pocket Parade is in the books. We are now looking forward to next year and how to make it even better. If you have an idea about next year’s parade or any other community events that you would like to see, please send me an email at: dfong@cityofsacramento.org

Thank you,
