Dear Springfield Elementary School Community,
I love spring. Don't mistake that statement as an admission of dislike for other seasons as I certainly enjoy a pleasant summer evening, a crisp fall afternoon, and even the occasional (one is enough really) winter snow day. Spring, however, just has something about it that really puts it at the top of my list. Part of it comes from the warm days that provide respite from cabin fever. I enjoy the fact that Spring marks the start of baseball season (which allows me to move on from yet another agonizingly abrupt end to Eagles football). The real reason though? Spring, to me, symbolizes opportunity and growth. The lawn that dried up and turned brown will get another opportunity to grow into a thick, lush carpet of green. The daffodil bulbs planted in the fall will push through the dirt and sprout their beautiful yellow flowers that my daughter loves so much. I'll once again try to regain backyard supremacy against the groundhog living under my shed. New opportunities...that's what makes Spring so great.
I suppose it's only fitting that I have the honor of serving the Springfield Township School District. Soon we'll welcome my favorite season and the new opportunities it brings, but we don't have to wait for a change in season to create new opportunities for our students. Across this website you'll find links to the people, organizations, and programs that provide opportunities for our students to blossom. From our dedicated and talented faculty to our unbelievably supportive Home & School Association, Springfield Elementary is an organization that focuses on student growth and the belief that every student matters. The great part? We do this all year long!
Thank you for visiting our district website and for your continued support of our educational endeavors (& opportunities!).
