I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving holiday last week. As you may be aware, Springs has enjoyed remarkable growth in recent years. It’s been our ongoing challenge—and one we love to have!—to provide quality classroom facilities to accommodate our new students. I thought I’d provide you with a quick update on a few of these projects.
We’re building a new campus for our Magnolia Student Center in Riverside. Once complete, the site will have 28 classrooms, four racquetball courts, a pool and a gym. We hope to have the work complete by the end of this school year.
We’re securing permit applications and pursuing bond funding for a new Flabob Airport Preparatory Academy (FAPA) facility in Jurupa Valley/Riverside. Students are currently meeting at a temporary site in a River Springs facility. (As a side note, it was my great pleasure to take part in the filming of a PBS television program on aviation in high schools which featured FAPA. See the article below for details.) And, we recently completed renovations at our iShine Student Center in Temecula. All classrooms are open, and sports and recess facilities complete.
Please note that enrollment continues at these sites and all of our schools throughout the school year. Eighty percent of our new students come via word-of-mouth, so if you’ve had a good experience at Springs, we invite you to share it with family and friends. If a student is struggling in a traditional school, a mid-year switch to a Springs school might be just what’s needed.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah (or other holiday), and I hope you enjoy the upcoming break.
