We are striving to develop positive digital citizens by becoming a Common Sense school. The link provided in this post includes helpful tips for parents to help students use technology in a positive, constructive manner. Our students are discussing topics and participating in classroom lessons to build digital citizenship skills as well.

The Reflections Committee would love to see artwork from our talented Springers! We have a great new theme this year of “Heroes Around Me.”  This year marks the 50th anniversary of the National PTA Reflections Program. Please submit your original piece of work in 1 of 6 categories: Dance, Film, Literature, Music, Photography and Visual Arts. Flyers with detailed rules and entry forms will be distributed next week. They will also be available on the PTA website (www.springerpta.com) under the Programs/Reflections tab. Entries are due by Friday, October 12th. They can be turned in to your teacher or Mrs. Cogbill. This is a great chance for students to express themselves and have fun with the arts! All participants will be recognized during our November 13th PTA meeting. If you have any questions you can email Kimberly Campbell at reflections@springerpta.com.
