AIG Parent Night Concludes with a Packed House

Our AIG informational series concluded on Thursday Night with a packed house. We received lots of positive feedback on our presentation. Thank you to Katie Griswold, Pam Best, Michelle Williams, Shannon Brayboy, and Jamie Bream for presenting at these meetings. A special thank you to Katie Griswold and Michelle Williams for organizing, conducting, hosting, transporting kids, and promoting the Spring Hill AIG road show. We are blessed to have their experience, professionalism and dedication on our staff. Whatever was was done! And done extremely well!

We also benefit from the work and public speaking skills of our student ambassadors Jennings Dean, Taylor Waitley, Devontae Williams, Carson Buie, Emma Herr, Ufuomah Ojeni, Arnez Whitfield, & Jenna Hammonds in student presentations. They did an outstanding job of representing our school's curricular and extra curricular offerings.

Several Spring Hill parents served as parent ambassadors for Spring Hill during our meetings: Larissa York, Rick Best, Pam Lewis, Leslie Sellars, Denise Herr, Leigh Carter, Misty Peed, & Bob Dean. Their testimonials were simply inspiring to staff as well as to our prospective parents.

Displaced Family

SHMS Staff: We have a family who was displaced due to a fire that destroyed everything in their home. The family is in need of furniture, cooking utensils, bedding, etc. If you have any items that they can use, please let me know. Donations of food, clothing for the family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children--9 yr old boy, 12yr boy 6th, 15 yr girl), would be greatly appreciated.
