A MESSAGE FROM MS. ROBERTSON

Excitement has been in the air at Spring Hill Intermediate! The holidays have come and gone and our students have accomplished so much in the first semester. Now that the winter months are upon us, please be sure your child has dressed appropriately for cold weather. Most days we go outside for recess and it is important that they come to school with a coat (with their name on it). School begins at 8:00 am; please make every effort to have them at the appropriate drop-off area on time. Our Spring Hill Intermediate family would like to wish you and your family a safe, healthy, and Happy New Year!

Spring Hill ISD Referral for Gifted and Talented Program



Spring Hill Independent School District is considering Kindergarten through Eighth graders for the Gifted and Talented program. Parents or anyone interested in the educational welfare of the student may refer for the program. Nomination packets are available in the Primary, Intermediate, or Junior High offices, as well as online.


Referral forms for 1st-8th grades may be returned to the Primary (1st and 2nd grades), Intermediate (3rd-5th grades) and Junior High (6th-8th grades) offices by February 16, 2023. Nominations for Kindergarten may be submitted to the Primary office through January 5, 2023. Kindergarten testing will begin in January 2023 and 1st-8th grades will test in March 2023.


This semester, students in Gifted and Talented classes have studied a variety of topics based on their grade level. Topics included simple machines and engineering skills, countries around the world, dinosaurs, sharks, inventors, blueprints, and prototypes, among others. Students researched, created models and made presentations about their topic. The fifth grade class even had the opportunity to dissect a dogfish shark.


Information about the Spring Hill ISD gifted and talented program process can be found in the campus handbook. For information, parents may contact the gifted and talented coordinator, Janna Graham at 903-323-7708 or jgraham@shisd.net.

W.I.N. (What I need time)

One of our most important goals for our campus is to close achievement gaps, make sure that our students are performing on grade level and to provide challenging instruction . Part of our plan for academic success this year will include W.I.N. time. W.I.N. time is spent every day addressing each student's individual targeted instruction. Kudos to our teachers and staff for meeting each of our students' individual needs!
