Dear Springfield School Community,

 

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

 

Now that we are in the final trimester of the year, we are reminded of the many year-end activities which will be occurring between now and the last day of school  (June 19).   Please pay special attention to the list of upcoming events to learn all the exciting, fun, and educational things that are “buzzing” in the halls and classrooms at Springfield!

 

One of these upcoming events, thanks to our amazing Home & School Association, is our annual Mayfair event!  Mayfair will take place throughout the school grounds on Saturday, May 16th from 10:00-3:00. This is a wonderful family fun event that brings our community together.  Enjoy games, inflatable rides, rock climbing and the opportunity to win various “themed baskets” full of amazing donated items from our parents and guardians! Please   contact the school’s main office for ticket and other information.

 

This is also the time of year that our professional staff looks towards next year for academic/homeroom placement.  Our staff works diligently to place all students in the appropriate class settings.  Many factors are taken into consideration when making these placement decisions.  Some of these factors are:  learning styles, behavior support and/or structure needs, gender, individualized student needs and peer relations. We do not honor parent requests for specific teachers except under the circumstances of retention or a past unresolvable negative experience.  Requests which meet either of these requirements must be forwarded in writing to the Superintendent by Ma29th for consideration

 

Homeroom assignment lists will then be sent home to families in late August with the final teacher and room assignments.  These assignments will be final and unchangeable.  If possible, we will have taken into account parental input, but, there can be no guarantees that your wish will be fulfilled.  We appreciate your cooperation and understanding that the assignments have been made for the greatest benefit to our students.

 

Beginning the week of May 4th students in grades 3-6 will be taking the End-of-Year administration of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC).  The results of this computer-based assessment are one snapshot of your child’s progress towards achieving the knowledge and skills outlined in the Common core.  Students should get a good night’s sleep and eat a nutritious breakfast in order to do their best.  PARCC and NJASK Science (grade 4 only) dates are as follows:

 

May 4                           Grades 5 & 6-Language Arts Literacy

May 5                           Grades 5 & 6-Mathematics

May 6                           Grades 6 Only-Language Arts Literacy

May 7, 8, 18-22             Make-up testing for Grades 5 & 6

May 11                         Grades 3 & 4-Language Arts Literacy

May 12                         Grades 3 & 4-Mathematics

May 13                         Grades 3 & 4-Mathematics

May 14, 15, 18-22          Make-up testing for Grades 3 & 4

May 27th               Grade 4 NJASK Science

May 28th               Grade 4 NJASK Science Make-up testing

 

As we move further into spring  there is a buzz in the air of beautiful flowers blooming, the sun shining and a renewed “spring” in our step! !


In education,
