Daily Bulletin





A memorial service for K9 Jag will take place at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2016, at the McClellan Conference Center, 5411 Luce Ave., McClellan Park. Jag died Jan. 20 when he was struck by a vehicle. Jag was participating in his yearly certification at the time of the accident.


A Core Belief of Twin Rivers is that all students will graduate college, career and civic-minded ready. To support that belief, TR students in grades 9-11 participated in PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test) School Day last fall and those scores are now available.


Students can access their score report online and learn how prepared they are for college, explore which AP courses are a good match, and gain insight into skills needed to prepare for the SAT.


An access code to retrieve the results is available from TR school counselors and was released electronically to the email address submitted on the exam. A paper copy of the results will be sent home this month. If you need assistance or have any questions, please contact your school’s counseling department.


Learn more at psat.org/scores.



"College: Making It Happen" is intended primarily for 6th through 9th grade students and their families, and provides practical and easy-to-understand information on how to prepare academically and financially for college.


The Saturday, April 2, 2016 program, being held at Sacramento State is intended to help reaffirm the message that college preparation begins many years before the final year in high school, and that college planning is a family affair. 


Space is limited. You must register online if you plan to attend! Registration will close when the event is full.

Event information, including parking instructions, will be emailed the week of March 28.


On event day, check-in will be from 8:00 - 8:30 a.m. The program will conclude at 1:00 p.m.

Click on the registration tab on the left to register.

College Making It Happen is a collaborative effort with Los Rios Community College District, UC Davis Undergraduate Admissions & Early Academic Outreach Program, Sacramento Cal-SOAP Consortium, Breakthrough Sacramento, University of the Pacific, ScholarShare and other community and educational organizations.
