SHISD Mid-Week Message

Promoting Great Things in a Great School District

National School Counseling Week 2016

"School Counseling: The Recipe for Success," will be celebrated from Feb. 1-5, 2016, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems. National School Counseling Week, sponsored by ASCA, highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career. National School Counseling Week is sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) and focuses public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors across the country.

The counselors of SHISD have a tremendous impact in helping students achieve school success, carve out future plans and prescribe services for issues affecting student classroom performance. By the time a student arrives at the counselor’s office the chances are that their counselor already knows what the student's needs are—the family situation, the social situation, what’s going on with their classes, etc.

What our counselors in Spring Hill ISD do is so much more than just making schedule changes. National School Counseling Week honors school counselors by providing recognition for those who implement comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Take some time to thank a school counselor during National School Counseling Week. Our counselors are the heart of Panther Nation.

Intermediate Students Take on Leadership Roles

At the Intermediate this week, two students have really stood out as leaders in helping others get along! Madison L. and Paisley N. have volunteered to read to several 4th grade classes about accepting others and abolishing gossip and rumors!! These awesome Panther girls came to Principal Doron and asked to help teach others about accepting everyone! SHISD is so proud of you! Way to be a shining example of Panther Pride!

"I AM ..." Wall

Mrs. Mercer and the Intermediate teachers have been working with students on a project to help unify the intermediate school! It is called the "I Am..." Wall. The teachers taught a lesson to the students about being proud of who they are. Afterwards each child finished the statement "I am...". The students' work is then displayed around our building reminding us of all the things we bring to our team at Intermediate!! Way to go SHIS!

Groundhogs Day

From the Equity Center

Feb. 2nd is Groundhogs Day. According to Punxsutawney Phil, we're due for an early spring this year. Hooray! But does it mean we're also closer to a Supreme Court ruling in the Texas Taxpayer & Student Fairness Coalition, et al. v. Michael Williams, et al. trial? Let's hope so.

We are hoping to hear from the Supreme Court by the end of the month. Lets just hope we see some real change in school finance and not another round of unfair and inadequate funding.

Watch the election candidates closely. There are some that are good for public education and some that are very bad for public education. Be informed and vote, vote, vote!
