Mt. Sierra Christian School breaks ground for addition

Staff reports

Ground-breaking ceremonies for the building addition to Mt. Sierra Christian School took place on June 19. The school is located at the corner of State Route 88 and Old Foothill Road just south of the Nevada state line. The expansion consists of a four-classroom building, including an assembly room.

In addition to the previously enrolled 50 students, the new building will accommodate an additional 60 for the 1997 fall semester. The school is now accepting enrollment applications at all grade levels.

Mt. Sierra’s teaching staff is fully credentialed, with Kathryn Winebarger serving as principal. Winebarger has just recently retired from public education. She spent the past 12 years as teacher and principal with the Eastern Sierra Unified School District in Coleville, Calif.

Mt. Sierra promotes a back-to-basics curriculum, providing all students the opportunity for drill and practice, as well as hands-on activities that help ensure understanding. The school operates on a traditional school calendar.
