Determination and hard work. That’s what took Jacob Waters, 17, twelfth-grader at Springs Studio for Academic Excellence, from being born with a birth defect to world-class athlete. Waters is competing in the Para-cycling World Championships in Rio De Janeiro, March 22-25.
Sandi Esparsen, Falcon Education Foundation secretary, receives a plaque of appreciation from District 49 Board of Education President Nov. 9 after awarding just under $31,000 to educators across District 49 for innovative and unique learning opportunities.
A group of 18 students, several from each district high school, volunteered to serve on the student board of representatives, adding the student voice to the district’s governance process through the community’s elected representatives. The student representatives were chosen by their teachers and peers to help bring a student voice to the district’s governing processes.
We are having a Meet and Greet for the 2018-2019 school year New Enrollments on Tuesday, July 24th at 5:30pm.

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.
