The grand re-opening of Weston Elementary School was held last month to mark the beginning of the new school year.

The accolades continue for this voter-approved Measure G renovation project as the Ripon Unified school board is scheduled to receive a certificate of special congressional recognition from the offices of US Congressman Jeff Denham.

“On behalf of the US House of Representatives, I want to congratulate you on your Ripon Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting and grand re-opening ceremony,” he said.

Denham’s proclamation will be presented at the 7 p.m. meeting tonight in the Ripon Council Chambers, 250 N. Wilma Ave.

Other agenda items include:

uDistrict counsel David Soldani, in closed session, will provide an update on land acquisition for possibly expanding Colony Oak Elementary School, which is the other half of the Measure G renovation project.

uRUSD and the San Joaquin County Child Abuse Prevention Council will look at a pact to lease Ripona Elementary School for the Head Start program.

uTrustees are scheduled to approve the Ripon High fall overnight trips as requested by choir (Mountain Harmony trip), Future Farmers of America (college tour, the Cow Palace in San Francisco, National Convention, and officers leadership training) and the Junior Reserve Officers Training Corp (Camp Parks 2015).

uThey’ll hear the update from speaker James Moore on the Measure G Citizens’ Oversight Committee.
