Principal's Welcome Message
September 7, 2020
As we open up the 2020-21 school year, I would like to take this opportunity to share with you some of my thoughts and a few “pivots” that we are making to accommodate the new school year. First and foremost, I am proud to be your child’s principal. I am humbled by the responsibility of keeping your children safe and leading a team that will guide your child through middle school. I’m committed to continuing to lead with enthusiasm, a positive mindset, and compassion. I’m confident that our Spring View staff is committed to doing the best we can for each child to succeed.
With the unprecedented series of events that have occurred so far this year, without question our Spartan families will need to come together as a community. We need to rally behind each other as we take on this unique school year. With much patience and grace, we need to cheer each other on, celebrate our successes, learn from our mistakes and from each other, and spread the positive vibes. We face a new reality that is giving us new routines, structures, classes, and schedules. Our staff is working hard behind the scenes to continue to improve our practices and make the appropriate adjustments to our new world. If there is a mistake or a mishap along the way, we’ll work together to make it right. We are committed to working together to support your child and give them a positive learning experience even though it looks quite different. Throughout this year, if you need anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. At a minimum, continue to smile behind your mask and wave while you are dropping off your child for school. We love the positivity and enjoy working with your child.
A few notes as we start off the 2020-21 school year. Spring View has had a handful of changes in staffing for the year. Last year’s Assistant Principal, Cheri Daniels, has moved to support Mesa View. I will continue to be your point of contact for administrative needs. Spring View will be picking up support from Sue Broaderson, the principal at Westmont Elementary School.
With the change in staffing, our elective offerings have been adjusted. This year we are continuing to offer yearlong electives in the following areas: Leadership (ASB and Bridges), Yearbook, Beginning Band, Advanced Band, and Choir. Our Elective Wheels provide students with a rotation of three areas of focus. These may include the following: STEM, Music Appreciation, Coding, and AVID. Our new elective offering is an Introduction to AVID which is designed for all learners to have the tools and strategies to be career and college ready! We are excited to be able to empower your child with academically charged electives during the 2020-21 school year.
I will continue to update our community with new information and schedules as we move through the school year. Continue to check your Aeries Communication. Again, thank you for your trust and cooperation. I’m confident we’ll get through this together.
Stay safe Spartans,
