Each yearbook costs $13. Please make checks out to Springfield Elementary School. We can also accept cash. All students will receive their yearbook during the last week of school.

Reminder for Band Students

Sixth-grade band students should not leave their band instruments at school overnight. Students cannot practice at home if they leave their instrument at the school each night. The school is not responsible for any lost or damaged instruments. Please remind your student to bring home their instrument each day. Thank you!

6th Grade Students Headed to Outdoor Ed

Springfield Platteview Community Schools has a very special program for sixth graders across the district. On April 26-27, we will be participating in the 31st annual Outdoor Education program at Eastern Nebraska 4-H Center located at Schramm Park. 

If your child will be attending Outdoor Ed on April 26-27 and will require medications, you will need to complete the Outdoor Ed medication permission form. Please read an important letter from our district nurse, Kelly Haynes, for detailed information.

The purpose of this program is twofold:

  • Students will develop a better understanding of our natural resources and habitats.
  • The program attempts to enhance their appreciation and awareness of our environment by creating a classroom under the skies for two days and one night. The experiences they share at Outdoor Ed offer a better understanding of environmental concepts.

During the day, students divide up into learning groups of approximately ten girls and boys from both elementary schools. The students walk between sessions with their counselors. Sessions include archery, orienteering, crafts, and additionally, a zipline and trust course for team and confidence building. Teachers from three of the schools in the district and guest instructors teach these sessions.

On Friday, April 27, after a wrap-up session, the students board the buses and head back to their schools in time for dismissal. Students will be tired from a very busy two days, but they will have memories that last a lifetime and new friends with whom to share these memories.

Realizing that the transition from two elementary sites to one junior high facility can be difficult, we take this opportunity to join together the sixth grade students from Springfield Elementary and Westmont Elementary. Our goal is to provide opportunities to make new friends and interact with staff members from the junior high school. We have seen friendships formed at Outdoor Ed that have continued through college.

Springfield Days

Mark your calendars for Springfield days on Friday, June 8 and Saturday, June 9. There will be face painting, dunk tanks, parades, fireworks, games, food, and more. Watch for more details coming soon!
