I’m pleased to report that on May 9th, the Riverside County Board of Education voted unanimously to renew River Springs Charter School (RSCS) for another 5 years! Every five years charter schools are required to be renewed by their sponsors; the process takes several months in which data is reviewed and evidence presented. My thanks to all those who were involved in the process, including the Riverside County Board of Education, as well as all the talented staff of RSCS who make the school an ongoing success.

It was my great pleasure to take part in grand opening ceremonies for Springs’ Magnolia Student Center, 4020 Jefferson Street, Riverside on January 22.

December e-Newsletter

December 1, 2017

It’s hard to imagine that 2018 is upon us in a few short weeks!

I believe it’s valuable for families to celebrate their growth and accomplishments as part of their New Year’s celebration. I know as a mother of four that hectic days, weeks and months can slide by, making it hard to remember what events and activities made each year special. Of course, it’s important to celebrate milestones, but memorializing the small wins can do more to encourage a happy, optimistic attitude every day in ourselves and our kids. In my house, we have spent each New Year’s Eve doing at least one reflection activity – writing about our year, completing scrapbook pages together, filming video interviews or telling stories. Last year we filled out a “year in review” form (see above).

One of the things that gives me great joy in my work with Springs is when I learn of the many fine things our graduates are doing. One such young man, Carter Low, came to my attention when Hurricane Harvey was in the news. Carter, 19, is a 2016 graduate of our KEYS program. He has begun a two-year mission with his church, sent to minister to the Chinese community living in Houston, Texas, which was devastated by the August hurricane. (Carter took classes to learn Chinese concurrently with the KEYS program.)
