Principal’s Note

Welcome to another exciting school year at New Springs Schools!

As we partner to contribute to the development of our students, I am confident that we will continue to grow and flourish academically for the 2014-2015 school year. As we reflect on years passed, we celebrate our many achievements, and as we look to the years ahead, we acknowledge that there is still much to be accomplished.

In our richly diverse school we encourage a culture of respect for self and the environment. Our teachers understand the value of quality instruction to enhance learning and we are making every effort to prepare our  students to transfer their learning not only on tests but also in their everyday lives. Therefore, we aim to use instruction and resources that reflect ‘real-world’ circumstances.  Some resources available include: Study Island, Accelerated Reader (AR), and FCAT Explorer.

In the same breath, please remember that NSS Connect is also the best way for you to stay up to date with your child/children’s progress. From our experience, students are more driven when they are aware that they are being monitored so please communicate your intentions and expectations to them. This way, learning goals are reinforced and much more can be achieved.

I look forward to a productive school year filled with milestone achievements and record-breaking performances!
