Stand Out Spotlight
Springhill StandOUT - Ms. Rhoades!
This week Mrs. Berley passed the StandOUT award to Ms. Barrie Rhoades! She said: "I would like to pass the standout award to someone who is a vital part of our Springhill family! This person is always here, rain or shine, to make sure our school is clean and safe for everyone who enters it. On top of being wonderful at her job, she also goes out of her way to be a support to teachers when she notices that they could use a friend or a kind word. I am passing the Standout award to Mrs. Rhoades!"
Family Engagement Packets went home last week. If you wish to participate as a virtual guest speaker, volunteer in other capacities, and have read over our family engagement plan, please complete this form.
I can hardly believe it”s OCTOBER already! October is National Bullying Prevention Month and we will also celebrate Red Ribbon Week the last week of October to promote our wonderful Springhill students living a drug free life always!! Our character word(s) for October are ACCOUNTABLE and RESPONSIBILITY. These two words are so important I feel when it comes to bullying prevention and living responsibly.
- The updated school calendar for the 2021-22 school year can be found here.
- Drop off begins at 7:30 a.m. and pick up will begin at 3:20 p.m. Please remember to pull up as close as possible to the car in front of you. This allows us to load and unload eight students at a time and helps keep our traffic line moving quickly.
- Instruction begins at 7:45 a.m. Students are counted tardy after 7:50 a.m. The first 30 minutes of the school day is an essential time for personalized learning to occur for all students. The best way you can help your child academically is to get them to school on time.
- Students must be fever free for 48 hours prior to returning to school.
- Every student has one free breakfast and lunch per day if they choose. Links to school menus can be found above.
- You are invited to eat with your child in our outdoor picnic area adjacent to the front office. Come in, sign them out, and enjoy the cooler weather that is coming very soon!
