27 Aug

According to the folks over at Starkey Ranch, the long awaited Starkey Ranch K-8 School will open in August 2021, just in time for the 2021-2022 school year! The official ground breaking ceremony is scheduled for September 5th and actual construction will begin in October of this year. More information below compliments of Starkey Ranch.

Groundbreaking alert! Starkey Ranch will soon be home to an innovative Pasco County kindergarten through 8th grade school right in the neighborhood. The new school, with gymnasium, playground, track, athletic fields and an exciting technical theater and library, will be located adjacent to Whitfield Park in a beautiful natural setting.

 

The school groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for September 5th. Mike Gude, Director of Construction Services and Code Compliance for Pasco County Schools, says that construction is set to begin in October 2019 and our new K-8 will be open in August of 2021 for the 2021/22 school year.

 

Mr. Gude was happy to share some highlights, “Like all new County schools, the Starkey Ranch K-8 will offer the latest innovative features and technology to support our STEM and Career & Technical Education (CTE) focus. We are doing our best to ensure the school design is flexible space-wise to accommodate the evolving Arts and Engineering curriculum. A digital design lab is being talked about and we’ll have great spaces for Family and Consumer Sciences. Plus, there will be a really innovative focus on the performing arts.”

An adjacent “technical theater” and library are also being built! At the theater, students can learn the basic technical aspects of running a real production and putting on performances. It will also be a wonderful venue for the K-8 drama, dance and music programs. “And remember,” Mike points out, “All of this is geared to K-8 students! It’s always all about the kids.”

Designed with a color palette compatible to Starkey Ranch and set against the natural Florida beauty of our community, we are sure our new K-8 will join the ranks of the top-rated schools our Starkey Ranch students currently attend. During non-school hours some facilities will be open for shared-use activities by Starkey Ranch and Pasco County.

Chipotle is one of the first chains of fast casual dining establishments. Chipotle’s menu consists of five items: burritos, bowls, tacos, quesadillas, and salads. The price of each item is based on the choice of chicken, pork carnitas, barbacoa, steak, tofu-based “sofritas”, or vegetarian (with guacamole, which would be at an extra charge otherwise).

Coming to Trinity: Clean Juice

10 May

Clean Juice is coming to The Villages at Mitchell Ranch in Trinity. If you’re not familiar with the Clean Juice brand, here’s an except from their website:

Clean Juice is in a league of its own. Other juice bar franchises are out there, but only Clean Juice can claim USDA-certified organic status. Clean Juice is truly a nutrition and wellness franchise, not just a juice bar. Our products are the purest on earth containing no added sugars, not pesticides, and no antibiotics. Clean Juice is a unique franchise opportunity with limitless potential. We are always looking for passionate business partners to join us on our journey to a healthier world. We’ll get there together, with healthy, organic products!

Clean Juice® started in 2014 as the brainchild of Kat and Landon Eckles. Landon, after spending years traveling internationally, was ready for a career change and more time at home with his growing family. Kat had spent the better part of a decade making smoothies and juices at home and presented the idea of opening a juice bar in the Charlotte area. Landon and Kat quickly jumped into the idea with 100% motivation and heart. They moved to Lake Norman and opened their first location, Birkdale Village, on their 8th wedding anniversary, June 5th, 2015. After just one year of business Clean Juice began franchising becoming the only 100% USDA-certified organic juice bar franchise available. Choosing to become USDA-certified organic and focusing intensely on kindness and gratitude with their guest experience.

This will be the first Clean Juice location in the Pasco County area and will open it’s Trinity location in the coming months.
