Springwater Needs YOU! Please volunteer!

There’s no better contribution to the lives of our kids than partnering with our teachers and staff at Springwater School.  Whether you volunteer for an hour or make a commitment over many months, your volunteer time is appreciated.  We need your help at school.

Join our 2020 Attendance Resolution!

Attending school has a huge impact on student success. This year we want to make sure every student misses no more than 9 days of school, or 1 day a month. We need your help.  Please let us know how we can best support you and your student so that they can show up for school on time every day.

Some Attendance Tips to Promote Student Learning:

  • Make sure your students keep a regular bedtime and establish a morning routine so they are rested and alert when they get to school.
  • Turn off all electronics including TVs, phones, and tablets at bedtime.
  • Make sure clothes and pack backpacks are ready the night before.
  • Check with our school nurse or office staff if you are not sure about when to keep your child at home due to illness.
  • Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor’s appointments when school is in session.
  • Talk to teachers and counselors for advice if your student feels anxious about going to school.
  • Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, neighbor, or another parent to take your student to school.
