A Message From the Superintendent

President Theodore Roosevelt once said “Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” Our students are learning this on a daily basis as they arrive on campus with the sunrise to put in work at the field, the court, the gym, the running path, marching zones, and academic tutorials. As students are preparing to represent the Blue and White before school, teachers are busy setting up lessons, technology, centers, labs, and all of the things that bring the classroom to life as students walk through the doors. As we settle into the rhythm of the fall semester, I am inspired by the effort and commitment of students and staff to work hard at work worth doing.


I am very grateful for the students, teachers, and staff who work tirelessly to learn, grow, compete, and get better each and every day. I am truly proud to be a Panther!


Sincerely,

Penny

Spring Hill Student Completes Downtown Mural

Spring Hill student Ava Arnold recently painted a mural in downtown Longview. A freshman at Spring Hill High School, Ava says she began painting at a young age. “I have generations of artistic women in my family, so I started painting and making art as soon as I could hold a paintbrush.”


Ava and her mother, Wendy, teamed up to develop the concept and paint the mural titled Spring Melody. The mural features a girl with a dandelion. “The girl with the dandelion, Melody, is a symbol of the newness of spring and the wonder that children experience,” said Ava. “The dandelion fades into music notes, representing the arts and how children are naturally creative.”


Arts!Longview conducted an open call to East Texas artists earlier this year. Ava and Wendy’s design was selected from the many entries received. “I was extremely happy, a little bit nervous, and surprised that we were chosen from so many talented artists,” said Ava.


Located on the back side of the Texas Tire Exchange building, the mural was funded by a Texas Commission on the Arts grant that Arts!Longview received. “A huge thank you to Arts!Longview, Mr. Dan Trammell and everyone else who helped make it possible for me to paint on such a cool canvas!”

Spring Hill Introduces Dual Credit Welding Program

Spring Hill High School now offers a workforce dual credit welding course at no cost to students. The class is a collaboration with Kilgore College.


Throughout the school year, students will complete welding assignments in the shop, as well as online assignments related to various aspects of metallurgy. At the end of the year students will take a weld test, and upon successful completion they will earn an American Welding Society (AWS) certification. Students will also have the option to convert the workforce credit into an elective credit course on their Kilgore College transcript should they decide to continue with KC.


“This will be the first opportunity to take a college course for many of these students,” said Adrian Knight, Assistant Superintendent of Career and College Readiness. “We’re excited to add welding to the line-up of dual credit courses available at Spring Hill.”
