A Message From the Superintendent

As we come to the close of 2020 and our first semester I would like to thank the Spring Hill Family for your patience, understanding and willingness to help us succeed this year. We started the semester with the mindset that we were going to be successful this semester and we were. One of our greatest accomplishments this semester was our very own Blue Brigade Marching Band qualifying for the state marching contest. The Blue Brigade finished the contest tied for the state championship. When the tiebreaker was implemented they came out in second place. This was one of the finest performances I have ever watched.

I will close the semester with this. This past week I was able to interview 15 high school juniors for a scholarship. Several of the questions asked were about people they admired, who played a significant role in their life and who they viewed as a leader. 100% of these 17 year old juniors referenced a family member when answering these questions. I’m not for sure if you have ever viewed yourself as a superhero, but know this. Your kids view you as one.

This year I would like to begin presenting the parent of the year. This year’s parent of the year is Wayne Noon. You will often find him at a late night football game watching his daughter cheer and the very next morning at 8:00 am watching his son play baseball. His daughter, Rylee says this about her dad: “He is very hard working, he loves us and cares for us. His son, Reid said this about Mr. Noon: “He cares for us, loves us, helps us with homework every night and is always taking us to the places we need to be.” The good book says you will know a tree by its fruit. Mr. Noon, you have two great children to be proud of as a result of your hard work and dedication to them.

Merry Christmas and enjoy time with your family.

SHISD Earns Perfect Score on its Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST Report)

Once again, Spring Hill ISD received a superior FIRST rating. The Texas legislature created the School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) to encourage public schools to better manage their financial resources to provide the maximum allocation possible for direct instructional purposes. A superior rating is the highest possible rating that a school district can receive. For the year under review, Spring Hill received the highest number of points possible in the rating system. The rating is calculated using 15 financial indicators, such as administrative cost expenditures; and financial vulnerabilities or material weaknesses in internal controls as determined by an external auditor.

Shout Out to SHISD's IT and Maintenance Departments

Campus downtime for most means time to work for others. Guys from our ever dedicated IT and Maintenance departments worked with system installers to finish off the intercom system replacement at the Junior High. This new system is state of the art and includes numerous security features helping us make SHISD just that much safer. I am thankful for the vision and dedication these teams bring that continually serve to improve our district. These guys were up here on Saturday too! They don’t like the spotlight and thrive working behind the scenes, but I love these guys and their love for our district. A special thanks to Kyle Linthicum, Carl Wildt, David Barton, Gene Evans, and Travis Vanhoose for running all the call boxes and pulling so much cable and offering support to José and Dylan the installers from Firetrol. Great job y’all!! ~ Ben Shelton, Board of Trustees
