Smile Keepers Promotes Healthy Teeth Program For Pre-Schoolers

Smile Keepers Promotes Healthy Teeth Program For Pre-Schoolers

Sacramento -- Smile Keepers' volunteers greet dozens of families needing information about providing proper dental health care at SCUSD's recent School Readiness Fair at The Serna Center.

Specializing in pre-school age children, Smile Keepers says parents must be aware that "baby" teeth are very important for developing proper speech, maintaining spaces and gaps for adult teeth and, of course, chewing food. Baby teeth that decay and become infected can damage the growth of adult teeth, often resulting in crooked teeth needing braces. Smile Keepers is funded by tobacco taxes through the First 5 Sacramento Commission.

For more information, contact www.first5oralhealth.org or call 916-876-5875. Smile Keepers reminds parents that if their children have Medi-Cal, Healthy Families or Healthy Kids insurance, they likely have dental care coverage.

SCUSD Teachers & Students Protest Threat Of Severe Budget Cuts At Serna Center Thursday

SCUSD Teachers & Students Protest Threat Of Severe Budget Cuts At Serna Center Thursday

Sacramento City Teachers' Association organized a rally before Thursday's Sacramento City Unified School District Board of Trustees' meeting protesting against more threatened budget cuts in an already stressed educational system.

Thursday's rally in front of the Serna Center left no doubt about the plethora of issues concerning teachers, students and even support personnel about what may result if severe budget cuts hit the district again -- they want music, art, athletics restored, not subject to more elimination.

Support staff, especially school counselors, suffered extreme cutbacks denying students academic and social services needed in at-risk campuses.

SCTA leaders are also fed up with the exorbitant amount of money the school district trustees pay to outside consultants after teachers agreed to each give the district $95 every month to reduce the current school year deficit.
