A Message From The Superintendent
Dear School Community,
The month of May is a time of great celebration in our school community. Students perform in special programs, participate in awards ceremonies, compete in extracurricular events, and much more.
The ultimate celebration takes place with our seniors on Friday, May 26, as they walk the stage for high school graduation. Seniors have spent countless hours throughout the last four years preparing for this momentous occasion and planning for postsecondary experiences. Senior parents, thank you for sharing your students with us. We have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of their educational journey, and we look forward to celebrating them at graduation next week!
We are incredibly proud of all of our students and the great achievements they have made during the 2022-2023 school year. We look forward to all that is to come!

Spring Hill Intermediate Student Council Raises Money For Longview Animal Care Center
Spring Hill Intermediate Student Council members presented the Longview Animal Care Center with a $2,000 check this month. The Student Council raised the money for this donation in a school-wide “Penny Wars” competition. The group of third through fifth grade students also delivered donated items to the shelter and read to the animals while there. All Spring Hill Intermediate classes collected items such as new collars and leashes, dog treats, cat and dog food and toys to provide to the center.
This is a busy and exciting time for our Seniors! Please make note of this information regarding end of the year Senior events.
