 From the Principal

  Dear Springfield Families & Friends,

Well, as of today, we have successfully welcomed back in-person students at all grade levels (K-6).  What a process!  Glad to report that all three phases went smoothly, and it has been such a joy to have smiling kiddos (yes, they are smiling under those masks!) back in our building.  A special thank you to everyone who made this possible.  So much work went into planning, preparing, and executing each phase, and I truly appreciate the teamwork and collective efforts demonstrated by our parents, students, and staff!

We are quickly approaching the final days of our 1st trimester, with the grading period ending on Friday, November 20th.  Both in-person and remote students should take advantage of these last weeks and seek assistance with any incomplete and/or missing work from teachers during their office hours @ 1:20 - 2:20 p.m., Monday - Thursday.  This one hour is especially set aside each day for students to catch up on anything they still need to do, ask questions, and/or receive necessary help.  It is also when they can engage in activities in our Specials areas:  Art, Music, and Physical Education.

While traditionally this is a time of year when many of us look forward to having a big holiday dinner with family and friends, for many of us, that will not be possible this year due to health and safety concerns stemming from the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.  While for some this is may be simply an inconvenience, for others it is going to increase feelings of isolation, depression, and anxiety.  Please know that our Student Support Team here at Springfield School is ready and willing to help assist our families in any way we can.  Never hesitate to reach out to myself and/or Mrs. Lori Dumroese (Social Worker) ldumroese@msd143.biz.

The real gift of gratitude is that the more grateful you are, the more present you are.”- Robert Holden. 

Wishing you and yours a Thanksgiving filled with peace, joy, hope, and love.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Brown
