Spring Hill Elementary Needs Your Help!

Hernando County, Let's help support Spring Hill Elementary School!  Please see Mr. Maine's message below.  To donate go to Fund-A-Project and choose Spring Hill Elementary to fund!  Let's meet this goal and turn this school back into an "A" school!


~~Dear Community Members, Parents and Teachers:

My name is Michael Maine and I will be the new Principal at Spring Hill Elementary for the 2015-2016 school year.

Five years ago SHES used to be an "A" rated school, but has steadily declined and as of the 2014-2015 school year was a "D". I am being charged along with a new Assistant Principal of turning things around.

As a Title I school we do receive Federal funding, however this funding cannot be used for many of the significant needs that our school has such as paper, ink, teacher classroom supplies and for custodial equipment that is broken and in need of repair or replacement all together!

Turning this school around is going to be a TEAM effort on the part of the school administration, the leadership team, teachers, non-instructional staff, students and parents. I am very passionate that TOGETHER we can change the culture and climate of the school and provide a top rated education for the students that attend.

I am very excited at the opportunity and hope that you will join me in helping to raise $5,000 or more for our school, so that we can begin providing a very safe and clean working environment for our students, teachers and staff. The students of Spring Hill Elementary deserve the very best and we are committed to making that happen!

Thank you so much for your time and generosity. If you have any further questions or would like to be of further assistance, you may contact me directly at the below email.
