Don't Count down the Days, Make the Days Count!

Panther Nation,

We have just a few days left in this school year and what great days they will be. From kindergarten graduation to the real thing next Friday, these are exciting times. Year end celebrations and award ceremonies will highlight the hard work and accomplishments of another great year in Spring Hill. SHISD also wrapped up a successful month of testing from STAAR/EOC to AP Exams. In fact, SHHS administered over 160 AP Exams this year.

However, school is not out and we need to make the most of each day we have. I would like to congratulate the staff and students on their tremendous efforts this year and look forward to the final week. Finish Strong!

With great pride,

Steve Snell, Superintendent

From the Intermediate School: We've had a very successful week of state testing at the intermediate thanks to the following folks:

  • Huge kudos to Mrs. Turner and the primary campus for sharing staff to test students!
  • Great job to Michelle Smith and the intermediate cafeteria for their organization with breakfast and lunches!
  • Thanks to our intermediate staff for making our students feel confident and self assured on our testing days! We had no errors in test administration thanks to our mindful staff!
  • Big Kudos to 4th grade parent Angela Florczykowski for making great and encouraging signs as well as organizing dad's and mom's to greet students on their testing days to give each student that extra boost of confidence!!

Thank you Pat Parks!

Words cannot express the gratitude for the work and dedication Pat Parks gave to Spring Hill ISD as interim CFO. He not only kept SHISD in good shape while we hired a new CFO, he made needed changes and provided excellent leadership. Good luck in your re-retirement and take care of those grandbabies! All the best - Steve Snell

Even The Best Get Hung Up Some Time

Mr. Kiser, labeled as superhero by his students, ran into some kryptonite heading to his son's kindergarten graduation Wednesday. Mr. Kiser decided to test the strength of the fire hydrant and the response time of the Longview Fire Department...something like that.

The good news is the truck is OK and he made it to graduation on time. Thank you for letting us have a little fun with this.

SHHS STUCO hosts Ultimate Frisbee charity event

An ultimate Frisbee tournament was hosted at Panther Stadium this week. The event, hosted by the Student Council raised $500 for Braylon, an intermediate student who is fighting a battle with cancer. The donation will help off set bills and travel to Children's Hospital in Dallas. This was a great event hosted by the many service minded students of SHISD!

Speaking of Braylon, he is recovering from a successful surgery and should be home soon.
