The Elk Grove Charter School is committed to creating individualized educational opportunities for students by combining classroom instruction, independent study instruction, and community and workplace educational experiences. This educational approach is for students who seek an alternative to the traditional classroom-only instructional approach. It is also an alternative to the Elk Grove Unified School District’s comprehensive and continuation high school programs.
We are currently enrolling for the 2016-17 school year. For more information, please see our admissions section in the links above.
On Oct. 8, 2016 the annual Sacramento Archives Crawl will be held. The Sac Archives Crawl invites residents of Sacramento to explore this city's rich past. For students, this is organized as a scavenger hunt in which they must explore historical information at four historic locations around Sacramento, gathering passport stamps as they uncover new information. The event is completely FREE and prizes are available for students and adults. Top K-12 winners will earn a free ChromeBook!

Happy Friday and I wish everybody a wonderful weekend. We had a wonderful field day last Friday and look forward to more good weather and more time playing some games. I have enjoyed watching the students continue to play volleyball as we have left the net up this week.
Talking with Ms. Robinson our campus supervisor; she would like to remind all families that going back-and-forth to the Food Stop is not appropriate. We have too many students trying to make it up and back between classes and then showing up late. Please be prepared and bring a snack.
The custodian, Mr. Kris has also asked that students refrain from chewing and more importantly spitting gum out on the floor/ground and sticking it under their desks. He spends a lot of time cleaning up gum that could be avoided. Also, please flush all toilets after use and throw all garbage away in the cans around the school. This will keep our campus looking good and shows respect for the facilities we have.
As always, thank you all for your support of EGCS, have a good weekend and Go Falcons!
At EGCS we attempt to do monthly school activities. The first week of school we had our first Ice Cream social of the school year. We wrapped up the month of August with a Community Open House and our Semester Awards Night. During the Semester Awards Night, we recognized the students who had earned Perfect Attendance, Honor Roll, or Principal’s List during the Spring Semester of the 2015-16 school year.
Last week our students and staff participated in Field Day. Every Friday this school year is Spirit Day. We ask our students to wear their EGCS shirts. The class with the most school spirit shown, gets a prize. Mr. Breakfield’s first period class is definitely competing! They have won three weeks in a row. Our 8th grade class was recently the winner also.
Every month our teachers and staff pick a Student of the Month. Our Students of the Month and their families are invited to Lunch with the Principal the last Friday of the month. September 30th will be the first Lunch with the Principal of the school year. Both August and September Students of the Month are invited to attend.
Keep up the good work Falcons!

At EGCS, being a productive citizens in the community is important and part of our identity. We strive to develop students that are good citizens and responsible adults. The school's SOAR (safe, organized, accountable, and respectful) campaign highlights this character. We are proud of the accomplishments of our students and what they represent in our community. Please remember to be respectful of the business and homes around our school and help maintain EGCS's positive image.
Being a responsible citizen means to take pride in the community and to be brave and strong in maintaining it. This is especially true of safety concerns. If you see anything at the school, or in the community, please report it to school officials and we will do everything we can to address it or report it to the proper authorities. I would like to commend all students that have come forward and done the right thing by reporting something they have seen as unsafe. Our hope is that all students are safe as they come to and from school regardless of whether they are walking, riding a bike, taking the bus, or riding in a car.
One way we can be a positive influence on our community is to organizing a community clean-up day. Students to earn community service hours; and in the past, we have picked up trash along the sidewalk and field next to the school and helped to clean up the parking lot and windows at the shopping center on the corner of Whitelock and Atkins. Look for more information on this opportunity in the near future.
I thank all of you for your support of the program and remember EGCS Falcons SOAR in our community.
