From the Principal

Happy Spring!  Spaulding School is having an amazing 2018-2019 school year!  I am very honored to be at Spaulding for my second year as the Spaulding Principal.  We have a wonderful plans for the remainder of the year and hope you will visit this web-page often to see our latest information!

Spaulding is looking for parents to work along side the staff by joining the Parent Group.  The Parent Group helps make important decisions for the school as well as plan many exciting events.  The Parent Group usually meets once a month, after school from 3:00 to 4:00 pm.  By joining the Parent Group, you will get to meet other Spaulding parents and families and truly help make a difference in your child's school.  The next meeting is Wednesday, May 8th at 3:00 pm.  Childcare will be provided.  If you have any questions, please call the office at 708-385-4546.

Each month at Spaulding School, we celebrate students who model the 8 Keys of Excellence.  The 8 Keys of Excellence are not just part of a character education program for students but principles for all of us to live by!  The 8 Keys are:  Integrity, Commitment, Failure Leads to Success, Ownership, Speak With Good Purpose, Flexibility, Balance, and This Is It!  If you would like more information on the 8 Keys of Excellence, please visit
