Transcript: 11.17.23 Video News

Hello and welcome to your Friday. I am Sam Rolens, Chief of Communications for Santa Cruz City Schools with some school district news.

Come join us for at the Santa Cruz Warriors game Friday after next December 1st for a schools fundraiser night. We love our Warriors. The Warriors organization is, of course active in schools all over the county building enthusiasm for reading, getting kids active and being incredibly good sports. And Friday December 1st, they’re hosting a benefit night for schools through the Santa Cruz Ed Foundation.

It’ll be a great game against the Rip City Remix, will feature performances from students and the first 1000 fans get a Steph Curry graduate bobble head!

Get info and tickets here!

We’re all getting excited about the Downtown Santa Cruz Holiday Parade not just because it’s a wonderful community event but because your school will be marching and joining in the fun. So not only should you mark your calendars for Saturday, December 2nd at 10am to cheer everyone on and see the show, but reach out to your PTA/PTO/Boosters etc. and ask about getting involved.

Last year we had so much fun! Have a look for yourself in the video here, and you can get more info about the event here.

If you’re starting a new school next year—in TK/K, in 6th grade at a middle school or as a high school freshman—remember you can see our now recorded preview webinars on elementary, Middle & High for an overview of programming, enrichments, supports and school life.

You can find those recordings and more info at here or at

Thank you so much! We also have a couple of features for you: first, a look at an incredible event where Elementary, Middle and High School students played a joint concert under the big lights at a Santa Cruz High football game. Giddy is the word I’d use to describe the younger musicians, but I’ll let you see for yourself. Second, we spoke to parents who came together to cook for Branciforte Middle’s annual Tamalada event and reflected on what it’s like being middle school parents.

Thanks again! As always reach out to me if you have any questions and please have a great weekend!
