Closing one elementary school to raise the daily attendance in others was presented as a solution Monday night to school district trustees as a way to restore electives and broaden the education opportunities of Ripon Unified students.
It was all about college in their future for upper class students at Park View Elementary School Friday morning as the sixth, seventh and eighth graders filed into the multi-purpose room wearing their colorful college T-shirts and sweatshirts.
Until Delia Barragan moved into one of the Garden Apartments at Bethany Home, she had never heard of the town of Ripon. Delia grew up in Texas, spent most of her married life in Union City, and just never had much reason to travel to these parts; that is until her daughter suggested she make the move. That was 13 years ago, and Delia has never regretted having made the move.
