Happy New Year Spring Hill!

Hoping for a Happy, Safe, and Prosperous new year.

Greetings Panther Nation!

Starting in 2015, I plan to send a mid-week message on Wednesday to the Spring Hill family. The purpose of the message is to inform and share great news from around the district to celebrate and share with the Panther Nation! But, I can't do this without your help. When ever you catch something great going on in the classroom, extra curricular, or community, please send the great news and any pictures you might have, to either me or Cathy Reed. We are looking for great news to share about employees, students, campus, or the district as a whole. I know there are great things going on in your classrooms so send those shout-outs my way.

Panther Family Updates

  • Debbie Qualls. Reached her 5th week out of having her transplant and in all reports and feedback from her doctors she is doing outstanding, far better than most. She has to have 4 biopsy's to confirm that she is not rejecting the heart. She has had 2 and they both came back good. She has made a few trips to Longview for a couple of nights at her home. She is so unbelievably thankful that she is feeling so good and is ready to embrace life with a whole new zeal!
  • Garrett Plumlee is back at school! He is still recovering from his accident this fall but he looks great and we are glad to have him back at school.
  • I had the pleasure of visiting with Savannah Wulbrecht over the Christmas break. She was in great spirits and hopes to be back at school in the next few weeks.
  • Please continue to keep the Harshaw family in your thoughts. Pam is back at work this week. Dealing with tragedy is difficult, and it helps to have friends to help support you in the journey.


  • Welcome Suzanne Mitchell! Suzanne is taking over the assistant principal position at the Primary school. Suzanne is a recently retired principal in Pine Tree and has helped at the Primary campus most of the fall as a substitute.

    Hi Mrs. Doron,

    I just attended the Grade 5 Christmas concert and wanted to touch base quickly.

    I have to say in all the years attending Christmas concerts for my children, this was truly the best. On a couple notes, kudos to the teachers for getting all those students in place and ready so quickly. That in itself was a large task I'm sure. Kudos to Ms Taylor for preparing them so well. She created a really enjoyable and uplifting program. And the kids did such a wonderful job, they really did. I was truly impressed.

    Thank you and have a wonderful holiday.
