Student 'Unity Day' - 2016

January 24, 2016

The Superintendent’s Student Roundtable led by Diamond Jackson, Student Board Member sponsored its first Unity Day! This event was held from 3:30pm to 5pm on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at the Prairie Capital Convention Center. Participants also had an opportunity to attend the final ball games after Unity Day.
The Student Roundtable invited sponsors and members of clubs and student councils at each of the four high schools: Lanphier, Springfield, Southeast and Sacred Heart Griffin, to build unity between all the city schools. All students learned more about each school’s clubs/organizations. Members of the Parent Engagement Roundtable and sponsors helped at sign-in and in other auxiliary roles. A huge thank you to the Springfield Public Schools Foundation for sponsoring the event with a Student Grant!!
