As we head outside to enjoy the beautiful spring weather, I am reminded how wonderful the city of trees is and all that Sacramento – especially Oak Park – has to offer. The 40 Acres complex which has been a cultural gathering place for two decades is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. For 20 years, this landmark has served as a place where families come to enjoy a meal and socialize and be immersed in culture and entertainment.
We hope that you can join us on Saturday, May 6 for a day of family fun at the 40 Acres Street Fest. The festivities will take place from 11am – 4pm at Esther’s Park to celebrate the 40 Acres Art and Cultural Center’s 20 year anniversary. The event includes community vendors and resources with giveaways, electric car test drives, kids activities, and free food!
When scholars enroll at St. HOPE Public Schools they are immersed in a college-going culture from day one. We are thrilled to announce that our Sac High seniors have been accepted to 490 colleges so far! Some of our scholars have already committed to colleges including UCLA, UC Davis, UC Santa Barbara, Sac State, Tennessee State University, and Hawaii Pacific University. We can’t wait to hear where all of our scholars are going when they make their announcement at Signing Day on May 11.
We hope that you will consider supporting St. HOPE on the Big Day of Giving – early giving is open now through Thursday, May 4. For over 30 years, we have been working to bring cultural events, community development, and high quality education to Oak Park.
Through purposeful investment we have increased access and exposure for our scholars, Oak Park families, and residents throughout the region. While we have made great strides there is always more work to do. With your help and support on the BDOG we can expand the work we are doing and touch even more lives!
Delanie Hamilton William started at PS7 in the 6th grade and continued on to graduate from Sac High in 2014. She said St. HOPE Public Schools felt like family and because there was a genuine desire to see all students succeed. She thanks her mom for enrolling her in St. HOPE Public Schools which was an integral part of her becoming the first person in her extended family to graduate from college.
