SHISD Mid-Week Message
Weekly Superintendent's Message for Spring Hill ISD
This is a great time of year. The weather is getting cooler and excitement is in the air for Halloween. This semester is flying by quickly and it's important to stop and reflect on the great job teachers are doing in their classrooms and the progress our students are making. There are great things going on in our schools! I hope everyone can come out and support the Panthers this week. There is a lot to celebrate: volleyball is in the playoffs, football is Friday night, and the band has marching contest on Saturday. Have a great week!
- Kyle Linthicum fell and broke his heel last week. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
- Carol Procell and Charlotte Kincy are back. We have missed them both.
- Sally Morgan has retired. We will miss her.
- I just wanted to recognize everyone that stepped up for Ron Procell's funeral. We had two staff members that pulled triple cafeteria duty and teachers that stayed with their class in the computer lab and missed their conference to allow staff the opportunity to attend the funeral. We were able to get creative with other class coverage as well. David Lynch came over to be the administrator on duty. I know Carol really appreciates her SH family being there today. Polly Allen and Angela Florcykowski came to volunteer and covered two classes. Everyone really stepped up today! ~ Mrs. Robertson.
I would like to recognize Trudy Haywood for taking over the STUCO sponsor responsibilities for Mrs. Bailey while she is out on maternity leave.

Cross Country Regional Meet at Joe Pool Lake
SH Cross Country teams traveled to Joe Pool Lake to compete in the Region II, Cross Country Championships. With only four out of the nine lining up returning, this young team had in reality little pressure. Yet, for all 9 this race had been a goal since May. And it meant far more than a chance to go to state, it was a race to prove to themselves and others just how hard they have worked and come over the past 7 months.
The first race of the early morning was the varsity girls, and after getting great positioning, freshmen Samantha Schott & sophomore Marissa Seyer, both would sit in the top 30 in a field of over 100 runners. Cruising past the mile marker and into the last 800 meters, it would be Schott who would come around first, around 25th place. Yet, through her competitive nature and a few solid weeks of training under her belt, Schott was able to push past five to earn the 20th place spot, four places shy of advancing to state and only 2 seconds away! Following Schott, Seyer would come to cross the line 81st, 30 spots ahead from where she finished last year and 20 seconds better. Both girls competed strong and finished up a successful year.
Following the girls race, was the varsity boys race. Aiming for state, PRs, and better finishes, seven guys lined up ready to end their season on a high note. Going out fast, a field of over 150 runners would all chase down the dream of state. Getting out and boxed in, for the top five guys it would soon be noted this race was not going to be easy. Coming in with the fastest two times from a strong district, the top two runners, sophomores Austin Martin and Kalen Balow, would find themselves crossing the finish at 38th and 82nd, followed by teammates Haden Bray (90th), freshmen Caleb Hutcheson (95th), and sophomore Mason Hancock (99th), who would cross the finish line limping as a severe muscle cramp would hinder his last 800 meters down the finish line. And to round out the seven runners, would be freshmen Marshall Bodenheimer (116th), who battled the entire race, moving up over 20 places to earn a PR for the season! Sophomore, Craig Hunnicutt, who after getting tangled up and falling during mile two, would get back up and still make it to the finish strong and help the team bump up in the rankings for the final standing, finishing as a team 12th place out of 24 teams and ensuring they are the best team in the district, by beating out rival Kilgore by two spots.
