We Did It – It Will Be Built

It is now official. Rio WILL be getting a new Theater! The SJUSD Board voted unanimously at last night’s meeting to fund construction of a theater at Rio. Planning is to begin immediately, with construction beginning in months, and completion some time next year. This has been a long process, originally begun over 15 years ago. What a tremendous, well-deserved and long overdue measure of respect for the wonderful students at Rio Americano. (more info)
