SHISD Mid-Week Message

Weekly Superintendent's Message for Spring Hill ISD

Mindset #1: Everything is Possible

Panther Nation,

This year the staff and teachers of Spring Hill ISD were taught 7 mindsets that will help students and staff dream bigger and increase expectations with an optimistic view of the future. The 1st mindset is "Everything is Possible!" In this mindset, teachers can help students understand that they are capable of leading an extraordinary life and encourage students to embrace creativity to promote growth. In this mindset, teachers can work with students to create individual goals for the year and develop plans and strategies to create a path to reach those goals. Teachers can also promote the importance of adjustments and perseverance should setbacks occur. To be a premier school district, you have to do premier things. I encourage all parents to talk with their children about setting goals for this year and to encourage them to accomplish at least one thing out of their comfort zone in order to get better results than ever before. Dream big, chase greatness, and remember you are all #BetterInBlue! - Steve Snell

Staff Concerns:

  • Our thoughts and prayers go out to Scott Smith in the recent loss of his mother, Dorothy Smith.


  • A HUGE thank you Randy Kiser and the Blue Brigade, Andrea Jones and the twirlers/flags, BreAnn Dees and the cheerleaders, Nikki Fulps and the Pacesetters, Tina Lee and JH cheerleaders, Lindsay Brazell and JH twirlers/flags, the many students participating in jerseys, uniforms, SH shirts, and all of Panther Nation that came out to Chick-Fil-A to support the Foundation to help raise money for grants for our teachers and district! We appreciate you! #BetterInBlue ~ SH Education Foundation
  • SPECIAL THANK YOU TO…. New bikers, Bryce Wallace and Aaron Milam (did outstanding cheering on runners and leading the team), Coach Billingslea for driving and helping ill team member, Coach Dowell for keeping Coach Alford in line, and all the parents, fans and Stryder for all you do!! ~ Cross Country Coach, Jordan Alford
  • I just watched the most amazing band in the state of Texas clean the entire home bleachers of a football game in just 5 minutes ~ Steve Snell

Pray for Dotty

Please continue to keep Dotty, Gail Powell's granddaughter, in your thoughts and prayers. She is having chemo regularly on Thursdays and is responding well. She is fighting a big battle and the family appreciates all of your prayers. She's a warrior!
