Staff Appreciation Welcome Back Breakfast

Springall Academy is very fortunate to have a wonderful group of women from San Carlos United Methodist Church who have “adopted” us over the years. These women are retired educators. One of the many things they do for us is host a back to school staff appreciation breakfast. They serve a delicious spread of food and give all of our staff back to school survival kits. Their love, positive energy and support is appreciated by all. Visit our website to learn more about Springall Academy

Career Day

On April 10, 2019, Sierra Academy and Springall Academy teamed up to host the annual Career Day Fair event for our students.

These vendors included a Padres Human Resources Assistant, a Florist, two Starbuck's Baristas, a Magician, and more! They were able to talk to each vendor about their job so that they could gain a better idea of what their future might hold. The students participated in a "career day bingo" game that helped them to ask [...]
