Springs Studio Updates

  • A walking track at Springs Studio supports the healthy schools initiative. Supporting Healthy Schools Initiative: The Springs Studio for Academic Excellence supports the healthy schools initiative. This school year, money from a Medicaid grant helped fund a walking track at the K-5 campus. This walking track has provided a safe place for students and staff to exercise during break, recess and landsharks practices. According to Allison B., “the track helps her perform at her personal best.” She knows that three laps around the track is a half mile. The track has helped her compete against herself to set a personal best. Many of the older students walk on the track with friends during recess. Thanks to the this walking track, students and staff are getting more exercise during the school day.
