You Pick Event a Success
I’m sure the residents of Shively, CA were surprised by the estimated 500 visitors who made their way to CR’s farm last weekend. CR’s Farm Manager, Silas Sarvinski, AG students, and staff did an amazing job attracting community members to the farm for the “You-Pick Event.” And pick they did! Silas originally hoped that around one hundred people would attend the event, but his goal was reached five times over. He’s looking forward to an even more successful event next year.
Childhood Development Center (CDC)
The CDC provides care for children ages 18 months to 5 years during fall, spring, and summer when CR is in session. Enrollment for fall begins in early May, and enrollment for spring begins in November. Openings in the CDC fill fast, which results in a number of children on a wait list, and children are not admitted from the waitlist on a first-come basis because the CDC’s funding from the Department of Education requires that priority be given to low income and at-risk children. If you have student parents who are in need of child care, please advise them to fill out a CDC application as soon as possible. Applications can be acquired on the website or in person at the CDC. Note: The CDC does not have drop-in care.
Let your students know that CR is accepting applications for scholarships! Students need to submit only one application to be considered for all CR scholarships for fall and spring. The submission deadline is October 17, 2018.
Students can apply at www.redwoods.edu/scholarshipsoffice by selecting “Apply Here.” Students use their CR student email address to create an account. For additional information or classroom visits, contact Sheila Hall, Scholarship Program Coordinator at 707-476-4191 or firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.

CR’s College Access Program
To receive enrollment fee waivers (aka free tuition) students must be first-time full-time students who do not qualify for BOG.
In fall 2018:
103 students had their fees waived as part of the College Access (free tuition) Program
124 additional students would have qualified except they did not enroll in enough units
