Unfortunately the beginning of this year will be a little "heavy" with meetings. There are just numerous things that have to be covered. We will continue to only meet when necessary because I know you are all so busy, with very full plates. Please know that when we do meet, it is important information that everyone needs to take back and apply in order to keep Spearman going in the right direction. Thank you for understanding and for your passion for Spearman and its students.

Students Pictures and Directory Information Forms

If you have received any Directory Info. / Picture forms that are signed saying the parent does not want to have their child's picture taken or directory information given out - please turn them into the front office. We will need to contact each of those parents to make sure they meant to sign the form denying pictures being taken and for their child not to be in the yearbook. The form can be rather confusing and many parents sign and turn the form in by mistake.

Until we get clarification on each signed form, please do not put pictures of those particular students on your website, twitter, instagram , etc...

*FYI - We do not ever release student information to anyone, business, military, etc. The only way this form pertains to us is with the use of student pictures and placing them in social media and in our yearbook.

  • Due to Breakfast with Grands and also wanting to have plenty of time to prepare, I have gotten permission to delay Breakfast in the Classroom for an additional week. We will begin Breakfast in the Classroom on Sept. 14.
  • All of the Title I schools will be doing breakfast in the classroom differently this year. So we will all be gathering more information and details on how this will be taking place. I assure you that I will do everything possible to make this as easy on you as possible. I want this process to be simple, not time consuming and take very little class time.
  • I will also have a letter to send home to parents communicating information about Breakfast in the Classroom.

  • Monitor and supervise all students closely
  • Sitting on the gazebo is fine, but please periodically and randomly walk around the playground during recess.
  • Discuss and enforce appropriate playground behavior with your students.
  • Keep all of the students in view.

Common problem behavior and trouble spots:

  • Do not let the students go past the swings toward the bus offices
  • Do not allow students to go past the walking track near the pine trees near the fence by the road.
  • Watch the boys playing too rough. They are not allowed to play tackle football.
  • Make sure the students are using the playground equipment appropriately. Injuries will happen, but just make sure it is not due to inappropriate behavior.
