Welcome Back Letter

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! 

I am thoroughly excited to begin this year with renewed enthusiasm for what we hope will be a more typical year. The past two have been a test for our resilience as a community and I am grateful to have had the Ready Springs staff, Penn Valley Union district office, and of course the families for support as we navigated the last two years. 

This year we look forward to continuing the momentum we finished the year with! Field trips are back, volunteers are welcome and programs we had to put on hold will be launching. Some exciting additions and expansions we have in store include:

  • STEM learning access for all grades

  • Expanded new garden for lower campus and our ASES after-school program

  • Continued and expanded art education 

  • New after-school clubs including mountain biking and more!

  • THRIVE student store

  • Zones of Regulation and THRIVE social-emotional learning

  • New website and communication system

  • New Ready Springs Office /Student Support Services (follow the signs)

  • Restorative Justice Support

  • Ready Springs Spirit Wear Store

Before School Care- must fill out the application form https://forms.gle/Q2K8gps8ackSJD8L8. We are capped at 25 students and this is on an as-needed base.
