From the Principal

Dear Springfield Families & Friends,

Labor Day Weekend is a sure sign that summer has come to an end and autumn is quickly approaching.  At this point, students and staff have settled into their new school year and are already doing some amazing things!

I would like to thank all of you, in advance, for the hard work that you have done... and will continue to do... to support our educational efforts here at Springfield School.  We look forward to another positive and productive school year!

On a personal note, I would also like to thank you for such a warm welcome to Midlothian School District 143.  I have been very fortunate to meet so many of you at registration, Back-to-School Night, and daily arrival/dismissal.  You have made me feel at home here, and I am excited about my ongoing work with your children and their teachers.
