I Heart 186

August 17, 2015

Another school year is here, and with it comes an opportunity to share with the community just how proud families are that their children attend Springfield Public Schools.
The idea to “spread the 186 love” came about very simply. A small group of parents wanted to have a tangible way to show pride for our public schools and to spread that pride throughout the community. Making lawn signs with a simple message "I Heart 186" available at registration seemed like the perfect way to achieve this.
As you see these signs pop up in yards across the city, we hope to spark conversation and spread the word that:
1) We are proud of choosing District 186 schools for our children
2) District 186 provides a high quality education to every student
3) A strong school district means a strong community
