Message from the Principals
As we move into the middle of May, we are excited about several upcoming in-person events at Springville.
This week we welcome our future Springville Wolves to attend our outdoor Kindergarten Orientation. If you have a Kindergarten student or know a family with an incoming Kindergarten student, please join us! We will have several learning stations set up under the covered play area. Families can enter through the playground gates starting at 6:00.
In addition, the Spring Choir Concert is coming up this Thursday night. Springville 4th-8th graders will be performing in the gym under the direction of our incredible choir teacher, Andrea Herinckx.
Finally, in the coming weeks we have multiple field trips, celebrations and fun activities (including Field Day!). As a reminder, before coming to school to volunteer, make sure you have completed your background check with the District. You must be cleared and have a valid COVID vaccine card on file. Here is the link in order to complete the background check:
Looking forward to seeing many of you in these last weeks of school!

Classroom Placement Information and Student Input for 22/23
Assigning Springville students in grades K-5 to their classes for the next school year is an important responsibility. Our goal is to place students in a learning environment in which they can succeed. Classroom teachers and specialists provide important input into classroom make-up. They spend time with students in the classroom and other school environments and are aware of student needs, abilities and learning styles, as well as relationship considerations. For this reason we have an extensive process by which we collaboratively consider the following criteria as we organize classes for next year:
Combination of students who may have a positive or negative influence on each other’s learning and play
Balance of students with individualized education programs, academic achievement and second language needs
Balance of social-emotional needs
We recognize that as parents and caregivers you are your child’s most important advocate and teacher. We want to offer you the opportunity to provide information on your child that may not be directly available or observable in the school environment. You may provide relevant educational information about the specific needs or learning characteristics of your child by completing the form linked at the bottom of the page. We are requiring that all input be in writing in order to protect the integrity of our process.
Please do not request a specific teacher. Individual teacher requests cannot be considered because student balance is first priority in class make-up and because we may have changes in staffing and the number of classes at grade levels over the summer. Your information sheet will be taken into consideration while the team makes classroom assignments. While we work to honor the information you provide, the final placement decision is made by the school.
Thank you for your partnership in this process! The student information form is due by Friday, May 20th. Classroom assignments will be available at the end of August.
