An important message for 8th grade families!

All 8th-grade students are invited to attend this free trip to the San Juan Unified Career Technical Education ("CTE") Expo! Our Arcade 8th graders will be attending the Expo in the morning for about an hour and a half. They will be transported by bus to the Citrus Heights Community Center.

Students MUST turn in their permission slip by November 14th in order to attend. Please fill out your student's permission slip and have them to turn it in so they don't miss out on this opportunity to learn more about CTE Pathways available to them at our various San Juan high schools.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your child's school counselor, Ms. Andrea ( or Mr. Derum (

Additionally, if families would like to see all of the amazing CTE pathways that San Juan Unified School District has to offer, the CTE Expo will be open to parents and community members between 3:00 - 4:00 P.M. on November 16th.
