SHISD Mid-Week Message

Promoting Great Things in a Great School District

Testing Week. This week had Spring HIll ISD and the State of Texas giving a majority of students a STAAR test. I want to thank Dana Robertson for doing an outstanding job of training, organizing, and facilitating the district's testing program. As superintendent, I am very proud of the organization and professionalism campus administration and teachers exhibited this week administering the STAAR test. Thank you to all of the teachers and staff who kept the students mind at ease, encouraged them, fed them and supported kids this week and all year. The work you do for our students is noticed and appreciated.- Steve Snell

  • I wanted to thank all the track athletes that went above and beyond for their teammates. There was a small group of outstanding tracksters that cheered proudly for their teammates during the district meet. As a coach it reveals the integrity and character of our kids when they are willing to help push their own teammates to achieve their best. It takes a team to win, and I am lucky that there are those who see it. - Coach Eudy
  • Kudos once again to Roger Askew for doing such a great job every morning directing the Primary parent traffic and keeping everyone safe.
  • Kudos to Beau Vincent. You did a great job pinch hitting for Mrs. Parker at Monday's board meeting.

Good luck to our athletes competing in the area track meet today: Ann Hollas, Mikai Brown, Emily Alahmed, Jenna Peterson, Jacob Tomme, Kase White, and Hagen Tucker. We are proud of you!

We Share Because We Care

H.U.G. (Help Us Give) originally came into being in 1997 when four teachers decided that young children needed to be taught to be less self-focused and more discerning of others needs in and around our community. Since then, H.U.G. has grown and expanded into truly a service-oriented club where children are being taught to have compassionate hearts and helping hands. Two kindergarten classes, Mrs. Chapman and Mrs. Williams, are paired with two second grade classes, Mrs. McCutcheon and Mrs. Miller, that meet weekly for a time of reading together or working on a project. Our 2014-15 year started with a bang when the four classes collected enough money to assist the East Texas Food Bank in feeding the hungry through our Spring Hill backpack program. Following that, children generously donated gently used toys and one child from each class went with Mrs. Irwin to deliver the toys to Buckner Mission Center. In December, with our collecting of “Cash for Christmas”, H.U.G. classes adopted four children. Our young Panthers were able to provide clothing, toiletries, toys and candy, making an extra-special Christmas for those children less fortunate than themselves. In February, four elderly friends from Buckner Westminster Place came and read books about love and Valentine’s Day with the youngsters in the H.U.G. classes, who then treated them with a box of chocolates and a bag of handmade Valentine’s cards to share with their peers who were unable to attend our celebration of love. For Easter, all of the children colored cards and wrote messages for our senior friends at Colonial Village. Mrs. Irwin took one from each class to deliver cards and candy along with hugs, handshakes, Easter greetings and a bit of conversation. H.U.G. classes will culminate the year with an outdoor get-together with our partner classes to soak up some vitamin D and have a little fun in the sun. If our children have grown in love and respect for others and have experienced the joy that is gained through giving, then we as educators know that H.U.G. indeed has made a difference in our children and in our community. After all, everybody needs a “H.U.G.” every day!

Both bands received straight First Division ratings and earned Sweepstakes.

Thanks to Mr. Josh Perry and Mr. Jacob Pipak for all their hard work and dedication to their students. This, my friends, is why we have such a successful music program at Spring Hill I.S.D.!!!! All our directors and staff are involved from the time the students pick up an instrument for the first time until they graduate. Each of our directors apply their knowledge, skills and talents to helping every student to realize their potential and achieve the highest level of personal musicianship. The consistency of the program throughout the different bands is definitely a cornerstone of the Blue Brigade.

S.H.J.H. 7th Grade: Sweepstakes

S.H.H.S. Non Varsity: Sweepstakes
