spaulding Elementary School

Spaulding Elementary School serves approximately 100 students from prekindergarten through third grade.  Our school community encourages life-long learning by providing a challenging education while meeting our students' intellectual, social, and emotional needs. The teachers at Spaulding are highly qualified, dedicated professionals.  They work hard to ensure a positive, supportive, and nurturing environment.  We value our partnership with the families of our students creating a true family affair.

From the Principal

Spaulding School is off to an amazing start this 2018-2019 school year!  I am very honored to return to Spaulding for my second year as the Spaulding Principal.  We have a wonderful year planned 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, January 16th 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
