Tiger Summer Reading
Spring Grove School will be sponsoring the annual Summer Reading Program, “Tiger Summer Reading” for all students who will be entering grades Kindergarten through eighth for the 2019-2020 school year. This program is to encourage all students to read for pleasure at home during the summer months. It is a voluntary program, but we invite all students to participate.
Suicide Prevention Awareness
If you or someone you know is suicidal, get help immediately via 911, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK or the Crisis Text Line (text “HOME” to 741741).
Suicide is preventable. Youth who are contemplating suicide frequently give warning signs. Do not be afraid to ask about suicidal thoughts. Never take warning signs lightly or promise to keep them secret.

By teaching and reinforcing academic behaviors and higher-level thinking at a young age, AVID Elementary teachers create a ripple effect in later grades. Elementary students develop the academic habits they will need to be successful in middle school, high school, and college, in an age-appropriate and challenging way. Children learn about organization, study skills, communication, and self-advocacy. AVID Elementary students take structured notes and answer and ask high-level questions that go beyond routine answers. Find out more about Spring Grove's AVID Program.
Orton-Gillingham Trained Teachers
Orton-Gillingham is a highly structured approach that breaks reading and spelling down into smaller skills involving letters and sounds, and then building on these skills over time. It also was the first approach to use multi-sensory teaching strategies to teach reading, which is considered extremely effective for teaching students with dyslexia. Find out more about Spring Grove's Orton-Gillingham Program.

PreK, TK and Kindergarten Registration begins February 4th. Paperwork will be available online and in person beginning that day.
