From the Principal

Dear Springfield Families & Friends,

Welcome back!  I hope that this finds you all rested, relaxed, and well-recovered from the holiday season, and that each of you were able to enjoy spending some quality time with your child(ren) while on Winter Break.  Returning to school in January is always filled with renewed energy and resolve to make a positive difference in the lives of all the members of our school community.  The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to refresh, reset, and recommit to being the very best version of ourselves as possible.

Here at Springfield School, we are starting 2020 with a focus on SPEAKING WITH GOOD PURPOSE.  Please help reinforce at home the idea of thinking before you speak.  We are working this month on making sure that when we open our mouths to speak, our intention is positive and our words are sincere.  It's always important to speak honestly and kindly!

As we begin the New Year, it is always a good time to focus once again on our personal goals and to adjust and fine tune the steps we must take to achieve them.  I encourage parents to sit down with their child(ren) and discuss their experiences here at Springfield thus far, celebrate the successes, and develop goals and next steps for finishing the school year strong.

Finally, I wish everyone a very Happy New Year, and I look forward to the many continued successes and achievements of our students as the year unfolds.

Best wishes to you all for a happy, healthy 2020!

Mrs. Amanda Brown
