Meadow Brook Elementary School, the district’s 29th elementary school and Springville’s sixth elementary, will officially open with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, Aug. 22, at 10 a.m. The public is invited to attend the ceremony, which will include musical numbers by students. Those attending will be able to walk through and view the school after the program.

r

Serving as principal of the new elementary school is Ryan Pitcher, who was hired to the position in February. Before starting his work to open Meadow Brook, Pitcher worked as principal at Rees Elementary School in Spanish Fork for five years. Prior to his time at Rees, he served as principal at Barnett Elementary School in Payson for five and a half years and as a teacher of fourth and fifth grades at Barnett for five and a half years.

r

Pitcher said he was enjoying his time at Rees Elementary when the district called and asked him to help open the new school in Springville.

r

“It’s been busy, but it’s been good. I’ve met some of the parents and the PTA and I’m excited,” Pitcher said.

r

Meadow Brook will serve the area of Springville west of Main Street and south of 400 South. It is expected to open with between 550 and 600 students. “I predict more toward 600 based on the new homes I see going up like wildfire around the school,” Pitcher said. The area has seen a great deal of new construction in recent years.

r

Most of the students who will attend Meadow Brook attended Cherry Creek Elementary School in Springville last year.

r

Pitcher said the Meadow Brook has the same floor plan as Maple Ridge Elementary School in Mapleton, which opened in the fall of 2015. That school has 86,000 square feet of building space. “They really just have outdone themselves on the school. It really is amazing to walk through,” Pitcher said of Meadow Brook, adding that the construction is high quality and one can tell that a lot of care was taken make the school nice for the community.

r

The principal said he’s excited for the students and parents to meet the teachers at Meadow Brook. “I think they’re going to be really happy with what we’ve assembled here,” he said.
