Today is Wednesday, January 31st, and it is an A day.

We will have a special assembly today at 1:30. Emmy-winning storyteller Bobby Norfolk shares his humorous animated stories with audiences. As a reward, students who have been detention free all year will be called early to the gym for preferential seating-in chairs! Congratulations to those who have not had a detention all year! The list is posted by Mrs. Davis's office. Other students will be called when we are ready for them.

All three high schools will have Preview Night this week. Southeast and Lanphier will hold their Preview nights on Thursday, Feb. 1 at 6:30. Springfield High will hold an additional preview night for students who missed Tuesday because of athletic obligations.

The Family Engagement meeting will be this Thursday, Feb. 1 at Springfield High School Commons. Refreshments will be served at 5:30 (RSVP at 525.3059, ext.1 so they know how many people to expect!). The meeting will be from 6:00-7:30. The conversation centers around how schools and families can work together to support student success. I hope to see many of you there!
