Rio Beautification

Koi Pond Mural painters“The goal of the OneRio Campus Beautification committee is to visually and functionally enhance the campus environment. I believe that the physical environment students inhabit can greatly impact attitudes about and enthusiasm for being part the Rio Americano high school campus. To that end, the goal of the beautification committee is to work with the district to expand facilities’ improvements, make aesthetic and functional improvements such as landscaping, seating, and signage, and last, but not least, add artistic touches which make the campus a visually vibrant, unique place to learn. ”
Laura Osecheck,
Chair of OneRio Campus Beautification Committee
