    Welcome to springhill!

    Dear Springhill Parents,

         I want to welcome you to the new school year and share my excitement for all the amazing learning opportunities that our students will experience this year.

    Springhill School is a small campus with less than 500 students. The school was completely rebuilt in 1997 and is nestled up against the backdrop of the Briones Open Space. We currently have 18 classrooms (K-5), 3 special day classrooms, a learning center, a science lab, a computer lab, a large library, a designated music room, an outdoor garden classroom and two playgrounds with an ADA accessible play structure and a large multipurpose room. With the support of our Parent organization we also have a new covered outdoor eating area for our primary students.

    Springhill is a small but mighty school. Overall, we have close to 80 teachers and staff supporting the needs of our school community and the students. There is always positive energy around the campus: both students and teachers are happy to be here!

    At Springhill, our motto is “SPRINGHILL PROUD,” and our emphasis  is on three main concepts: “Accept, Respect, and Appreciate.” Every Wednesday, our school community gathers in the center quad and starts the day with a whole school spirit assembly. Each classroom has an opportunity during the year to present the assembly, lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance and the Springhill Proud pledge. Students also share examples of the Character Counts Pillar of the month. 

    We Are SPRINGHILL PROUD!

    We will accept, respect, and appreciate that we are all different.

    We will achieve, succeed and grow as learners,

    And every day we will strive to inspire and motivate others.

    Our school is committed to being an inclusive community where all students feel welcome. We celebrate and support the diversity of our school community, and believe that by doing this, we are modeling the collaboration and understanding that students will need throughout their lives to be successful in an ever-changing world.

    Springhill Elementary School Parent Faculty Club (Springhill PFC) is the primary link between parents, teachers and staff. The PFC facilitates school volunteerism, hosts social events and fundraisers, publishes the e-newsletter “Springhill Spotlight,” and much more.   

    The PFC is run by volunteers, giving their time, money and expertise to further support the educational goals set by our School and District.  Any level of volunteering is valued and appreciated.  Becoming a member of the Springhill PFC is a great way to get involved, have fun, and support our kids.

    PFC, together with the district education foundation, Lafayette Partners in Education (LPIE), help to fund many of the programs that make Springhill the truly amazing school that it is. As you walk down the halls or visit the classrooms, it is clear that as a community we value a learning environment that not only encourages thinking and learning, we are also having fun. Through music, science, art, technology and much more, our students are actively engaged in learning about their community and the world around them.

     As always, I appreciate the support of the parents, staff and students. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

    Sincerely,

    Mette Thallaug

    Principal
