Mrs. Jones is a Springhill StandOut!

Mrs. Uekman passed the Standout award to Mrs. Jones this week and said: “I would like to pass the standout award to Mrs. Jones. She is a ray of sunshine in our building. She always has a smile and is willing to help in any situation. She works hard to find creative ways to meet the needs of her students. Her positive attitude is contagious!” #sesstandout #greenbrierproud

Science of Reading for Families

Each month, the RISE Team produces a newsletter to explore and promote the Science of Reading in Arkansas. Within the newsletter, there are lots of resources that you may find helpful as you help your child on their reading journey. Click here to check it out! The focus for January is to take a deeper look at morphology and greek or latin roots.


  • 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!

Counselor's Corner

Hey to all! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Break and that your kiddos had a great 1st 3 days back to school for the year of 2022!! I’ve been under the weather but hopeful to be back THIS week. Our character word for January is LEADERSHIP and with it, we will tie in the ideas of how CREATIVITY can help us be strong leaders! Looking forward to KINDNESS week 2022 coming up the last week of January (24th-28th) and will be sending out information regarding that very soon!

Have a great week everyone!
