Weekly Newsletter for Spring Hill Intermediate Employees

May 1, 2015

Great News: Monthly Nominations are in...


  • Teacher of the Month: Neely Bartell: It is obvious that Mrs. Bartell loves her students and her job. If there is a student that is struggling she will go the extra mile to help them understand whatever it is that is being taught. She is always looking for ways to bring creativity and practicality to her lessons. She is humble and kind. Her smile makes her students feel loved and safe. She encourages not only her students but her fellow co-workers. Her faith inspires her to inspire others to feel like a winner even on those hard days. She is doing an exceptional job as a 3rd grade teacher. We are blessed to have her on our campus.
  • Support Person of the Month: Grace Mason: She works hard to keep our educational spaces clean for our students. I believe that our campus is always well presented to the community because of the amazing ladies that take care of all of us at the intermediate. The PTA also took time to send me an email detailing how sweet she is to them when they come to do our appreciation luncheon. Grace is extremely considerate and always polite. She is an exemplar model of Spring Hill pride, dedication and service.
  • Student of the Month: Shilyn Solis - Homeroom teacher - J. Cobb - MTA/dyslexia teacher - K. White. Shilyn should be recognized for her hard work, willingness to always try, giving her best effort and doing what is asked of her. She arrives to class with a smile on her face and is eager to learn. Shilyn is a joy to have in class!

Remember: 5th Grade Awards and Internet Safety Friday at 9:45am in Auditorium!
