From the Principal

Springfield School serves approximately 400 pre-kindergarten through sixth grade students.  Our school community focuses on providing a safe and nurturing environment that encourages life-long learning while providing a challenging education.  Students are guided to develop positive social skills to encourage their growth as productive and responsible citizens.  The teachers at Springfield are dedicated professionals who work hard to ensure a positive and supportive environment for every student.  We strive to develop a partnership with our families to ensure the best education for our students.

The staff at Springfield is ready to kick off the 2017-2018 school year.  We would like to welcome our new families and staff members.  Ms. Amy Olson will be joining us as our new 4th grade teacher.  Also new to the staff at Springfield are: Mrs. Katie Maguire in Pre-Kindergarten, Mrs. Ashley Hansen as the interventionist, Mrs. Crystal Robertson as the Literacy Coach, and Mrs. Michelle Engle as the Math Coach.

On Tuesday, August 29 at 6:00 pm we hope to see all of our families come out for Back to School Night to tour the building and your child’s classroom.  We are especially excited to show off the newly renovated library.

If you have not yet had the opportunity to become involved in Springfield’s Parent Group, consider attending the first meeting of the new school year on Wednesday, September 20, at 9:30 am.   They continue to work hard throughout the year for the students and staff at Springfield.
