Thank you to all the parent volunteers who helped make last week's Field Days so much fun for our students! A special thank you goes to Wendy Sandvi who helped with set-up, a whole day's activities, and clean-up, plus the solicitation and retrieval of coffee, bagels, fruit, and other donated items from Costco, Dunkin Donuts, Goldberg's, Kroger, and Trader Joe's. Of course, this event would not have been possible without PE Teacher Tiffany Orem and all of our Teachers and Assistants! It is wonderful to be able to restore this beloved tradition to level-wide gatherings. Make sure to check out our Facebook and Instagram posts for more photos!
Are you looking for fun, leadership, learning, friendship, and entrepreneurship for your daughter? Springmont parent Paula “Lala” Larson is looking for Springmont girls and their parents who would like to join her and her Lower Elementary daughter to continue our Girl Scout Troop 15537! She is willing to co-lead a multi-aged troop or a Brownie troop that would begin meeting at Springmont next fall. Please email Paula (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you might consider volunteering or have a daughter who may be interested in joining!

We are excited to be able to host our 19th Middle School Commencement Ceremony in person on Thursday, May 26, beginning at 6:30 p.m.! All members of the Springmont community are invited to attend and parking is on campus. We look forward to celebrating these students and know you won’t want to miss hearing each of them speak about their Springmont experience and plans, hopes, and dreams for the future. The ceremony is expected to last an hour, and light refreshments will be offered afterward. There is no need to RSVP.
If you can't make it to the in-person ceremony or wish to invite distant friends and family, it will be live-streamed via a private Facebook group to protect student privacy. To join the group, simply follow the instructions in Springmont Weekly News.
