February Edition

A Message from Mrs. Robertson

Happy Valentine's Spring Hill Intermediate!


We are now into the month of February and it’s hard to believe we are officially past the half way point of the school year. As we reflect on our strengths and weaknesses this year we will analyze and renew our goals for the remaining five months of the school year. The students are working hard and making strong gains in their learning. To the students, keep up the great work! Parents, your ongoing support of your child’s learning is vital to their success.


Your children are such a gift; every single one of them has unbounded potential. They are our Valentine's and they remind us of why we love what we do!

Six Flags Read to Succeed

To participate, students need to read for fun for a total of 6 hours or 360 minutes. They can read books, magazines, newspapers, eBooks, or comic books. Reading for homework or a class assignment does not count. Students were given a reading log last month to help them keep track of their time spent reading. The reading log form needs to be turned in to their teacher no later than FEBRUARY 22nd. Each student who participates will receive one free admission ticket to Six Flags theme park for the 2019 summer season.

Our school is participating in the Box Top for Education Program. Please send Box Tops with your child to school. A collection bin is located outside of the library door.
