 From the Principal

 Dear Springfield Families & Friends,

Welcome back from Spring Break!  I hope that you were all able to enjoy some rest and relaxation during this time away from school... and get outside to take advantage of some of the gorgeous weather these last few days.

April will be a busy month here at Springfield School as we kick-off IAR testing, introduce our One Book, One School reading selection, reach midterm of our final grading period (Trimester 3), and begin easing students and staff back to full day learning.  I am getting excited just talking about it!

We will do our best to communicate all the important information you need to know regarding each of these special events.  Please be on the look-out for SeeSaw announcements and email messages over these next couple of weeks.  And as always, if should you have any questions and/or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our Main Office at (708) 388-4121.

"Spring is a time of new beginnings, new possibilities... what quality would you like to grow this spring?"  ~ Tara Killen

Sincerely,
Mrs. Brown
