|I hope you are having a good summer. Our Springs staff has been enjoying some “downtime” as well, and we’re also preparing to welcome your children back this fall for a fabulous 2020-21 school year!
First off, I’d like to begin by congratulating our 284 graduating seniors. It was my pleasure to join in a virtual graduation ceremony honoring our graduates; if you missed it, click here to watch the ceremony on our YouTube channel. We have a wonderful and talented group of seniors we’re sending on to the next phase of their lives. To our seniors, please keep in touch, and know we expect great things of you!
Next, for those of you with students continuing with Springs in the fall, I’d like to encourage your participation in the 17th annual Springs Parent IGNITE! Conference on Friday, August 21. Our conference will be online this year, and our keynote speaker will be Susan Wise Bauer, author of The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home and publisher and editor-in-chief of Well-Trained Mind Press, which publishes K-12 resources for teaching in the classical tradition. The purpose of the conference is to inspire and encourage our parents and prepare them for an outstanding new school year. Click here to register and for more details.
And finally, our administrative offices will be reopening after the July 4th holiday as we prepare for school to begin again on August 20. If you have any questions or concerns I encourage you to contact your school site. Please enjoy the rest of your summer, and we look forward to seeing you again for the new school year!
