DIBELS Reading Tests

We will be once again doing DIBELS testing for reading from December 13-14. As you do for the MAP test, please make sure children get plenty of sleep.

Movie And Hot Cocoa

Come join us for a free family event on Friday, December 15 at 6:30 p.m. We will be watching Cars 3 while enjoying hot cocoa and snacks! Look for a sign-up genius in your e-mail soon.

Cross Walk And Safety

We would like to have everyone use the crosswalk when school is out and the safety patrol is trying to keep everyone safe. Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe.

PTO Meeting

Please note, there will be no December PTO meeting. The next meeting will be January 11.

Inclement Weather

There could be snow in the air at any time, and it will soon feel like winter. This also causes us to address outdoor recess. Outdoor recess is an integral part of the school day and provides students with a break from structured classroom time. Recess promotes opportunities for physical exercise and social development. Several parents have asked questions about when we are going outside and what cold weather gear their child will need. We strongly encourage all students to wear winter coats, hats, and gloves when the temperature is below freezing. Teachers will make every effort to ensure that the children wear the clothing they bring to school for outside recesses. You can assume your child will be outside to play in the fresh air if at all possible! Below are the general guidelines that we will be following. There are always exceptions, and we will use our best judgment to make sure our students are safe as they play outside in colder temperatures.

  • We will be going outside if the temperature (actual, feels like, and wind chill) is above ten degrees Farenheit.
  • Precipitation may cause us to stay indoors even if the temperature is above ten degrees.
  • We require boots, snow pants, and a pair of dry shoes to change into for any student wishing to leave the blacktop area when snow is present.
  • When the temperature drops below 35 degrees Farenheit, students must add an additional layer of clothing to what they were wearing in the building (Coats, hats, and gloves are the best attire to cover students’ skin while playing outside).
Mitten Tree

We will be hosting a giving tree at Springfield Elementary for our families in need. We will be collecting gifts and basic necessities. In order to participate, take a mitten with a gift idea from the tree, purchase the gift on the back, and use the gift tag for the outside of the present. The tree is available to everyone in the community. Please return all gifts by December 15. Thank you for supporting our community as always.
