SHISD Mid-Week Message

Weekly Superintendent's Message for Spring Hill ISD

District of Innovation

This week the Board of Trustees approved the final draft of a plan that will allow Spring Hill ISD to assume the designation of a District of Innovation. This has been a long and fruitful process of empowering several teachers, leaders, staff, and parents to dream big and help build the future of Spring Hill ISD.

Please go to and take a moment to look at the plan and the hard work of the committee.

The plan will stay posted online for 30 days for public input.

The best is yet to come. The next step is to bring parents and students together to add to the conversation about what our classrooms look like, what we ask our students to create and produce, and what makes the SHISD educational experience the best in the state of Texas.

With Great Pride,

Steve Snell

-Superintendent of SHISD

SHIS and Heritage Mitsubishi team up to help student in need

The Intermediate Student Council and Heritage Mitsubishi teamed up to sell bracelets in honor of Braylon . Braylon is a 5th grader that is fighting cancer. With a donation from Heritage Mitsubishi, STUCO was able to purchase bracelets and then sell them for $1.00 each. Fifth grade Student Council members presented a check to Braylon and his family in the amount of $849.00! The picture above is Braylon with his 5th grade STUCO friends and his check! We are so proud of the efforts the students and staff have shown to support Braylon in his battle with cancer! #SH4BC

The Stock Market Game

Kudos to these students! Mrs. Patak's 4th grade class is involved in "The Stock Market Game," which is an online activity where elementary students across the state can learn and practice their financial literacy skills. The students make "trades" on stocks and then are ranked among other students in the state that are playing along too! Our students are ranked 37 out of 406 4th and 5th grade teams in the Stock Market Game! We are proud of the real world experience and connections they are making! Students pictured are Zoi K, Alex G, Leslie S.

SH Baseball had a great week

All three teams had a successful week. Overall we went 6-0.

JV2 outscored Longview High by a total of 36-24. We won both games. Game 1 was 17-10 and Game 2 was 19-14. We also turned a triple play in game 2. Great job!

JV started the week with a 16-3 win over Gladewater. They followed up that win with another victory over Chapel Hill by a score of 14-6. Great job of letting the other teams in our district know that we have talent coming up in the future.

The Varsity posted two wins of their own. The week began with a 7-3 win over Gladewater. On Friday the team had its best offensive game of the year by beating Chapel Hill 9-5. This gives us a 3-0 record in District play. We are tied with Kilgore on top of the standings.

In the A division:

  • Girls Singles - Maz M played in a round robin and finished 1st place, winning all her matches!

Playing a tough match, Cooper lost to Zack.
  • We had one team for the Boys Doubles. Will S and Owen T played in their first tournament. They had a bye in which they advanced to the semifinals of the tournament where they went up against Van. They unfortunately lost to them and played against Wills Point for 3rd place. Will and Owen picked up the pace against Wills Point to come back an win 3rd place!
