It was the last day of school – literally – for Footprints Academy on Thursday.

Footprints Academy held a picnic on June 5 to commemorate the last day of school for students, and staff, as the school shuts its doors in order to make way for Peace of Mind Early Education Center to expand.

Footprints Academy won’t completely be gone however, much of its philosophy and legacy will live on next year when the new Woodbury Leadership Academy opens.

Footrpints Academy opened in 2001.
