Week of March 22 and March 29

Principal Corner

We hope everyone enjoys their Spring Break. Students and teachers have worked so hard the first three quarters of this year. I am so proud of everyone! Please take time to relax and enjoy your time away from school next week.

Mrs. Norwood


The Book Fair is coming after Spring Break! Check out how to create an e-wallet so your child can purchase books. Classroom teachers will be sending home a link so you can add money for teachers to purchase books for their classroom. We will also have a parent night so you can shop with your child. This will be on April 5th from 3:30-6:30. Stay tuned for more details.


Report Cards will come home on Monday, March 29. Please review your child's report card and sign the envelope before returning. Reach out to teachers with any questions you have.

New Zones

As Springdale continues to grow, we are excited to expand our school family with the addition of the new Jim D. Rollins Elementary School of Innovation. The Springdale School District prides itself on providing the highest quality, personalized education to all our students, no matter where they attend school. The Springdale School District is adjusting attendance zones for the 2021-2022 school year in preparation for the opening of the new elementary school in the fall. These new zones will mean new exciting changes for some of our families. Please see the link for the new zones. If you are zoned to attend Rollins Elementary School of Innovation, a letter was sent home with your child on March 17. Please sign and return the letter to Young Elementary. The letter will list the date/time of an upcoming parent meeting.

Notes from the Counselor- MOTIVATION

Counseling Lesson Theme- Career Awareness


Elementary school is not too early to start teaching your child about career awareness. Making career decisions is a lifelong process about exploring and experiencing the world of work. It is important for your child to become aware of how his or her education is connected to a successful future.


While in Elementary school, you can help your child:

  • Discover the variety of jobs available to him or her

  • Connect what he/she is learning in school to real-world situations

  • Imagine him/herself in an occupation

  • Develop work-readiness skills such as working and playing with others, making decisions, solving problems, and being a leader!

  • Discuss different skills and interests your child has and relate them to certain jobs. For example, a reporter needs writing skills to create newspaper articles or blogs.

By talking with your child about the link between school and careers, you will help your child understand that school is important and that school success can open doors to his or her career. This career resource goes more in-depth with the tips listed above.
