Juniper Ridge Receives Majority of Modules
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- Juniper Ridge Community School makes significant progress this week, as most of their modules are delivered.
The charter school expected these modules to be shipped over the summer, but due to financial issues, they weren't able to be sent. The school still opened on August 12th, but the kids have been learning at the Canyon View Vineyard Church.
Officials say one of the things they strongly believe in is the space children learn in, which is why it's important these modules finally arrived.
“Even down to the color of the walls and the kinds of materials that we use within the classroom,” said Patrick Ebel, administrative director of Juniper Ridge Community School. “That’s something we really have not been able to do where we currently are. So we are very excited to get into our own space and be able to make them conducive to the learning of our children.”
The school received nine out of 12 modules. Weather pending, officials will start to assemble them this week. When all is said and done, there will be a total of three buildings constructed.
