The first year of the new Riverside School has been an exciting success story. New opportunities for students, new friendships, and a long list of accomplishments provide positive proof of the value of the merger between Cedar Rapids and Spalding Public Schools. Construction began last September on a new facility at the Spalding site which will house a multi-purpose gym, cafeteria & commons area, as well as three classrooms. The gym will seat approximately 400 spectators and will sport a regulation wood floor/court.
There will continue to be two alumni associations, two banquets, and two scholarship funds. We are changing our name to Cedar Rapids High School - Riverside Alumni. Riverside graduates from both towns will be considered members of our group, will be welcome at our banquets, and will be eligible for our scholarship awards. The Spalding Public School Alumni Association also plans to make students from both towns eligible for their scholarship program.
