Better World Day

We had a great time with our 4th graders at Fried's Cat Shelter and the Michiana Humane Society celebrating Better World Day on Friday, May 6. The students made dog treats and cat toys that they delivered. They also read to the animals.

We are looking forward to celebrating Better World Day this coming Wednesday, May 11 with all other classes.

Our students are doing a great job of working together to truly make the world a better place!

Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week Follow Up

Thank you to everyone that provided food or sent in a thank you to members of the Springfield staff. We truly appreciate you and know that it takes a village to raise a child. We are so glad we are all part of the same village!

Notes from the Nurse:

-5th grade parents: Ms. Tarnow will be sending home a letter with some 5th grade students about immunizations needed before 6th grade. If your student doesn't receive the letter, it means they already received those immunizations. The required immunizations are the Tdap and Meningococcal vaccines. Please send in the updated record to the nurse after they're received.

-If your student has medication in the Nurse's Office, Ms. Tarnow will be sending a "Medication Return Authorization" letter home soon asking you what to do with that medicine on the final day of school. Please mark your response, sign and return to the nurse as soon as possible. Please note that if this form is not completed, signed and returned, the medication will be discarded.
