A New Year – A New School

If you’ve been following our Kids Without Stuff blog posts you’ll know that StarShine Academy now has a new home.

During the Christmas Holiday break, we worked to unpack the trucks and boxes, clean up the rooms and campus, paint and repair electrical and water pipes, plant a new garden and spruce up the existing landscape, and install all the technology that a school needs to operate.

The only reason this was possible was due to the dedication of the teachers and support staff at StarShine.

They are a phenomenal group. Everyone from our school finance department to the technology department to the teachers to the maintenance and kitchen department helped get the school ready for the first day back. Many of the StarShine Team worked weekends, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day. And the result was amazing! The campus was transformed and ready for the students and teachers to return on January 2.

During this next week I’ll be posting stories about the move and the first week back from the holidays. But, I wanted to share some photos from the two weeks of unpacking and setting up during the holidays.
