This time of year can be incredibly stressful...Click HERE for another one of my favorite Christmas skits from Saturday Night Live!

Recognize an SPS Employee!

Springfield Public Schools has an Employee Recognition Form that can be used by any staff member to recognize any other staff member. It's quick and easy, and means so much to those that receive them. Want to recognize a colleague? Click HERE!

Santa Shuffle is Coming!

Mark your calendars! The Santa Shuffle is almost here! Tuesday, December 15th will the the day of our fun all-staff gift exchange. Here's how it works: If you want to participate, you may purchase a small gift ($10 limit) or you may find the "perfect gift" just laying around your house collecting dust! Wrap it up and bring it to school, then set it outside your classroom door. If your classroom door is a bit out of the way, you may find a different location for your gift--perhaps near others. If you have more than one person in your classroom participating, be sure you put a little tag on the wall designating where your gift belongs. All day long, shuffle gifts to your liking...like a gift you see? Exchange it, shuffle it, move it--Gifts stay wrapped up until the big reveal! Gift shuffling concludes promptly at 3:00 pm, so whatever gift is outside your door or under your name tag in the gift you'll unwrap at our big reveal party! We'll meet in Mrs. Whitson's room right after school on Tuesday, December 15th, where everyone will open their gifts and show them off! Teachers will stick around for our faculty meeting, non-teachers will be welcome to leave after the gift reveal and head on home! This is a fun day and EVERYONE is invited to participate in the fun! The more gifts there are, the more fun we have shuffling them all day long, so plan to participate!
