It's hard to believe how fast the year has gone by, and that the holiday season is here. It's a time of year where we may be thinking about gifts we need to buy for family and friends or maybe even making a list for ourselves to give loved ones an idea of what we may like during this season of giving. As we look around our building and see the good work that goes on here throughout the year, we see the "gift" you all have in teaching and inspiring others. You have the gift and talent to put happiness and joy into the lives of others everyday. Not many people have that opportunity or gift. You do. Thank you for sharing your gift to the students at Springfield Elementary, not only during the holiday season, but throughout the year. Enjoy and spread joy in the week ahead!
