March Edition

A Message from Mrs. Robertson

Greetings parents! While it is chilly out right now, there are signs of spring everywhere! Spring is around the corner and learning is in full swing here at Spring Hill Intermediate. As you may know, this is the time of year that students make the most academic and social learning gains. It is also an important time for reminders about healthfulness as we want all children here, on time, every day to maximize their potential. We encourage all of our families to check our web page on a regular basis for information about academics, upcoming activities, teacher contact information, and volunteer opportunities.

Box Tops for Education

Our school is participating in the Box Top for Education Program. Please send Box Tops with your child to school. A collection bin is located outside of the library door. For every 50 Box Top collected, SHI receives $5.00. Our goal is for each of our 500 students to bring 50 or more Box Tops by May. This would benefit our campus by earning approximately $2500.00!
