SHISD Mid-Week Message
Weekly Superintendent's Message for Spring Hill ISD
Very Proud of the Spring Hill Family
This past week the Spring Hill family lost a former educator and husband when Jeff Kincy passed away. As many of you know, he had fought the good fight against cancer for the last twenty years. As most funerals are, his service was scheduled during the day. We had staff from all campuses step up and cover high school classes so that SHHS teachers could attend the funeral. This was an amazing show of support and it is what makes Spring Hill ISD a great place to live and work. I want to give a personal thank you to Mr. Peurifoy, Mr. Lynch, Mr. Albright, Mr. Barron, Ms. Owens, Ms. Koesel, Mr. Carr, Mr. Toleson, and Ms. Bowles for covering classes. Thank you also to Mr. Robinette for your leadership to make this possible.
It was a beautiful service. I would like to share one excerpt from his obituary that I would like to share that I thought was particularly powerful: "Jeff was a man of strong moral character who never compromised his integrity, regardless of the situation. Even when faced with less than desirable circumstances, he chose to make the best of the situation. This deep-rooted principle was apparent while mentoring the young men and women he coached and taught at Longview, Pittsburg, and Spring Hill High Schools during his twenty-four years of service."
At the service, we heard from former students and a parent of a former student who shared powerful testimony. Never underestimate the influence we all have on students (and each other) every single day. We look forward to having Mrs. Kincy return as soon as she is able. She has been missed. -SSnell

17 Years in a Row!
The Spring Hill HS Band earned 1st division marching contest rating for the 17th consecutive year!
The judges and other directors in attendance at the contest were extremely complimentary of the SH band and our school district. Some of the judges' comments were: It was great to see everyone at the contest supporting our group and , many were able to stream the contest live online. The band boosters were in full support, as always, providing burgers for the students and parents after the contest.
Congratulations to the High School Students Inducted into the National Honor Society!
Junior Achievement in a Day with 8th Grade!
Spring Hill Varsity Places 2nd in District and Moves onto Regionals!!!
Junior High Cross Country Wins 1st in District!!!
For the JH girls, one runner short of making a team they would go on to run having all four finish with personal best for the season, and one 2nd place finish (Riley Johnson). For these girls, running without a team was tough, but all season long they continued to run hard and ultimately finish with pride as they never gave up.
Then lastly was the final race of the day. And from the gun, it was a sea of blue in the lead. And at the mile marker, it was five SH in a mix of eight runners. Finally, after mile one, Nick Bodenhimer and Joesph Egbe would pull away from the back to finish 1st and 2nd respectively, followed by teammates Jaden Giddings (4th) and Jordan Hodges (9th) who would round out the top ten spots. However, not to be overlooked by the slew of SH runners who would continue to run and cross the finish line setting personal records and continuing to fight till the end. Which would round out with 7th Grader Zachary Schott, who would join the team late in the season, but would be seen finishing with a crew of SH runners from Varsity to JH to bring him across the finish line. These young runners would go on to earn 1st as a team, topping strong district Team Gladewater.
Spring Hill's Comeback Attempt Barely Allowed Gladewater to Slip by with a 38-35 Win
The Bears welcomed back some players that they’ve been missing over the past few weeks in Friday night’s district opener against Spring Hill.
That was evident in Gladewater’s first half as they built a 38-6 halftime lead.
Spring Hill, meanwhile, came in with a prolific offense and a stingy defense.
That showed up in the second half as the Panthers mounted a massive comeback, pulling the score to within three points and driving late in the fourth quarter.
Artrageous would like to invite you to the Longview Art Walk
