  • Dear Maple families, 

    We are reaching out today with some information about the end of the school year.

    In an effort to provide students with as much instruction time as possible, Springfield Public Schools is implementing a slight change to the final week of the school year.

    • The last day of school for all students will be Thursday, June 17
    • All students will attend school on Wednesday, June 16 (typically a remote learning day).
    • Any students attending two days a week will attend Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday during that week.
    • Thursday, June 17, will be an early release day for elementary students and a full day of school for secondary students (middle and high school students will be dismissed at their regular times). Elementary students will be released at 12:10.

     With current schedules in place, this change will allow for students to receive the most amount of instruction for their final week of school. The adjustment will also provide the least disruptive change to school schedules for all SPS staff and students.

     If you have additional questions, please reach out for more information by calling us at 541-744-6395.

    Thank you for your continued understanding in a year that has required flexibility from us all.

    Sincerely,

    Dave Hulbert, Principal

     

    Estimadas familias de Maple,

    Nos comunicamos hoy con información sobre el final del año escolar.

     En un esfuerzo por brindar a los estudiantes la mayor cantidad de tiempo de instrucción posible, las Escuelas Públicas de Springfield están implementando un ligero cambio en la última semana del año escolar.

    El último día de clases para todos los estudiantes será el jueves 17 de junio.

     Todos los estudiantes asistirán a la escuela el miércoles 16 de junio (normalmente un día de aprendizaje a distancia).

    Cualquier estudiante que asista dos días a la semana asistirá los lunes / miércoles o martes / jueves durante esa semana.

     El jueves 17 de junio será un día de salida temprana para los estudiantes de primaria y un día completo de escuela para los estudiantes de secundaria (los estudiantes de secundaria y preparatoria saldrán

    en sus horarios regulares). Los estudiantes de primaria saldrán a las 12:10.

    Con los horarios vigentes, este cambio permitirá que los estudiantes reciban la mayor cantidad de instrucción durante su última semana de clases. El ajuste también proporcionará el cambio menos perturbador en los horarios escolares para todo el personal y los estudiantes de SPS.

     Sí tiene más preguntas, comuníquese con nosotros para obtener información al 541-744-6395.

    Gracias por su comprensión continua en un año que ha requerido flexibilidad de todos nosotros.

     Atentamente,

    Dave Hulbert, Director

    Dear Maple Parents and Families,

     

    We miss you and hope you are all safe and well!  Our staff is excited to reconnect with their students on Monday, April 13.

     

    We are working quickly to meet the needs of our Springfield School Community.  The district has sent out communication and worked with families to gain technology for our distance learning.  Below is some important information.

     

    MEALS – Maple continues to serve FREE breakfast/ hot lunch daily to Springfield children ages 1-18.  Students pick up two bags with two milks each visit.  One is a hot lunch, the other is breakfast for the following day.  We also continue to have our Panera bread and Costco donations on Monday and Tuesday.  Our wonderful Mary and Martha enjoy seeing students.  It makes them feel good to feed them!

     

    STUDENT ITEM PICK UP – Student items are bagged and ready for pick up.  Many of you picked up on Thursday and Friday.  We have additional pick up times on Monday and Tuesday from 3:00 – 6:00 pm in the staff parking lot on 23rd and G street.

     

    DISTANCE LEARNING - We are working to keep kids and families connected to the school community and to learning. Our goal is to stay connected, engage in reading and math lessons, and enjoy a few other activities. We are trying to keep kids exercising and staying healthy. Click on this schedule to learn the times for your grade level virtual meeting and class times. We are NOT attempting to replace ‘regular school’ and turn parents/guardians into teachers! We are NOT expecting students to sit in front of a computer from 8:35 - 2:50!

     

    TECHNOLOGY - If you still need to check out a district  technology device, click here.  Due to the large number of devices needed throughout our SPS system of 10,500 students, here are the parameters for devices:  

      • high school students each get individual devices; 
      • 2nd - 8th grade get one device for every two kids in the household; 
      • KG-1st grade get one iPad for each child.  

    The district continues to work with internet providers to open up hot spots and make the internet available to our students.  The Family Technology Support line phone number is 541-726-3406.

    There are many resources at https://www.springfield.k12.or.us/SPSLearns to  help support distance learning in your home.

     

    Thank you for your patience as we engage in distance learning.  Our families are important to us and we miss our students.  If your family has needs please reach out to askSPS@springfield.k12.or.us and let us know how we can help.  We recognize there are lots of challenges.  Please communicate with teachers about your needs and we will do our best to help. We can figure this out together!

     

    Please feel free to email me with any questions at linda.oshea@springfield.k12.or.us

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Linda O’Shea

  • Celebrate MLK Jr. with your family!

    Posted by Dave Hulbert on 1/14/2022 11:00:00 AM

    “Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education."  - Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Happy Friday, Dragon Families,

    It can just seem like a three day weekend for those who have the luxury of an extra day off this weekend. I know that getting an extended weekend to get away, catch up on projects, to gather, to rest are critical to taking care of ourselves. I would urge you to do those things, if you are able.

    I would also urge you to slow down for at least a few minutes to reflect on why we have this national holiday. Consider taking a moment to reflect on the legacy of Dr. King, what he stood for, and how his messages about love, change, struggle, education, character, and equality are still so relevant today. Find a way to engage both yourself and your children in some aspect of his life and his message.

    One possible way to do this is to watch his famous "I Have a Dream" speech from 1963 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vP4iY1TtS3s). Hearing him say the words in his powerful voice sends chills down my back.... every time. Then discuss it with your children:

    • Why do you think this speech is so famous?
    • What is the dream he is talking about?
    • How did listening to his speech make you feel?
    • What can you do every day to help that dream become more real?

    When I hear the speech, I am both saddened and inspired. I am saddened that we haven't made more progress in the 58 years since Dr. King gave that speech. I continue to be inspired by the work towards a more equitable world. Dr. King said it well:  “Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle.”

    At Maple, we are engaged in this work for every child, and we are working hard to get better and better at that goal of helping "Every Student, Every Day." Seeing each child for who they are and helping them learn how to read, write, and understand math.... but also how to get along with others, be flexible, have empathy, control their bodies, manage their emotions in healthy ways, show kindness, be a good friend. We appreciate your partnership in this important work!

    So take at least a moment to reflect on one of Martin Luther King Jr.' s many important messages, and have a wonderful weekend!

    With love and gratitude,

    Dave Hulbert, Principal

     

    "Inteligencia más carácter: ese es el objetivo de la verdadera educación." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Feliz viernes, Familias de los dragones,

    Puede parecer un fin de semana de tres días para aquellos que tienen el lujo de un día libre extra este fin de semana. Sé que disponer de un fin de semana prolongado para escaparse, ponerse al día con los proyectos, reunirse y descansar es fundamental para cuidar de nosotros mismos. Os animo a que hagáis estas cosas, si podéis.

    También les pido que se detengan al menos unos minutos para reflexionar sobre el motivo de esta fiesta nacional. Considere la posibilidad de tomarse un momento para reflexionar sobre el legado del Dr. King, lo que representaba y cómo sus mensajes sobre el amor, el cambio, la lucha, la educación, el carácter y la igualdad siguen siendo tan relevantes hoy en día. Encuentre una manera de involucrarse tanto usted como sus hijos en algún aspecto de su vida y su mensaje.

    Una forma de hacerlo es ver su famoso discurso "I Have a Dream" de 1963 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vP4iY1TtS3s). Oírle decir las palabras con su poderosa voz me produce escalofríos en la espalda.... cada vez. A continuación, coméntalo con tus hijos:

    • ¿Por qué crees que este discurso es tan famoso?
    • ¿Cuál es el sueño del que habla?
    • ¿Cómo te ha hecho sentir el discurso?
    • ¿Qué puedes hacer cada día para que ese sueño se haga más real?

    Cuando escucho el discurso, me entristece y me inspira a la vez. Me entristece que no hayamos avanzado más en los 58 años transcurridos desde que el Dr. King pronunció ese discurso. Me sigue inspirando el trabajo por un mundo más equitativo. El Dr. King lo dijo bien:  "El cambio no llega sobre las ruedas de la inevitabilidad, sino que llega a través de la lucha continua".

    En Maple, estamos comprometidos con este trabajo para cada niño, y nos esforzamos por ser cada vez mejores en ese objetivo de ayudar a "Cada estudiante, cada día". Viendo a cada niño por lo que es y ayudándole a aprender a leer, escribir y entender las matemáticas.... pero también a llevarse bien con los demás, a ser flexible, a tener empatía, a controlar su cuerpo, a gestionar sus emociones de forma saludable, a mostrar amabilidad, a ser un buen amigo. Agradecemos su colaboración en esta importante labor.

    Así que tómate al menos un momento para reflexionar sobre uno de los muchos e importantes mensajes de Martin Luther King Jr.

    Con amor y gratitud,

    Dave Hulbert, Director de Maple
