IMPACT and Volunteerism
The Elementary classroom building includes all Lower Elementary and Upper Elementary classes along with Middle School's Math and Science programs. Both this building and the Media Center were designed in keeping with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) specifications. Exterior “green” features include geothermal heating and cooling, a highly reflective roof system, solar shading screens and windows with a special ultraviolet rating. Interior “green” features include low VOC paints and floor finishes and recycled content floor tiles.
The Media Center houses the printed library collection of nearly 7,800 and includes a conference/meeting room and office space. Both this building and the Elementary classroom building were designed in keeping with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) specifications.
Antonia’s Fountain was dedicated in August 2004, and is named in memory of five-year-old Antonia Watkins who was a student at Springmont. Antonia’s grandparents wanted more than a tree planted in her memory and the fountain idea grew from "Water Bugs and Dragonflies" by Doris Stickney. Each class participated in the art made into the fountain’s base. The fountain itself is made of metal “tipping lilies” that the water flows through. Across the way is the Activity Court, where countless hours of games occur, including spongee polo, tennis, basketball, field hockey and more!
The main building, built in the early 1970s and constructed especially to promote and feature Montessori educational principles, was cited for excellence in design by Modern Schools magazine. It includes large outdoor garden spaces for all Primary classrooms, so children can study nature first-hand, while caring for the earth. The building also includes a Middle School classroom, offices for administration and kitchen facilities.
The Fine Arts Cottage is the original house located on the school’s property. It houses both the visual arts and music programs for Springmont. On any given day, one will be delighted upon entering the cottage, either from the sweet sounds of the Suzuki program or from the visual treats the art program is working on, whether it’s sculptures of clay, gingerbread houses or pastels of water lilies. Solar panels line the cul-de-sac and return power to grid, often providing math and science lesson for students.
All Primary classes have access to adjoining gardens, which allows opportunities to care of the environment, as well as exploration in the natural world.
In 2014, Springmont added artificial turf to the field through gifts to the 50th Anniversary Annual Fund. The field will provide students an opportunity to play on a durable, safe and resilient surface while also providing a surface that can last a lifetime. It also will save water and will be pesticide free, showing that once again that Springmont is a good steward of the environment.
