Due to overcrowding on our buses, the District Transportation Department will no longer be issuing guest passes to students.

Our lost and founds are filling up.  If an item has a name on it, we will return it. Please put a name on your belongings, including lunchboxes.

We have one north face jacket and a north face sweatshirt in the front office.  Please come with a description and we will return it to you.

We have moved the lost and found to the cafeteria.  Clothing items will be hung on hangers; other items will be displayed underneath.  We will donate items left over three weeks to the Fort Mill Care Center or to Goodwill. 

Yearbooks can no longer be purchased at school.  However our yearbook company’s website (www.walsworthyearbooks.com) will accept yearbook orders through November 30. 



If you have mums sitting on your front porch, I’m sure that they look beautiful.  Sadly, they won’t always look that way.  If  you are going to throw them out after their bloom, please consider donating them to the Gardening Club at school.  All you need to do is bring in the mum (in the pot – we’ll get the pot back to you) and set it in the garden area by the bus entrance.  We’ll do the rest.  Also, if you have overgrown lilies or iris or any other perennial, please consider donating your extras to the garden.  Bring them in plastic bags or whatever, and leave them in the garden.  We’ll plant them!  Thanks!

Mrs. Weston and the Gardening Club



Report cards will be sent home with students on October 29, January 21 and April 8.  Final report cards will be mailed to your home.  When your child brings the report card home, please keep the report card, sign the envelope and return the envelope to school with your child.

From the Principal

Dear Students, Parents/Guardians and Visitors,
Thank you for visiting the Springfield Middle School website.  We are very proud of the staff, students and facility.  We have a comprehensive program in place where young adolescents can succeed and thrive.  Students are our focus and we are very proud to claim one of the best student bodies in the nation.  It is our hope that our students will be academically challenged and that all students are involved in at least one school activity.  I enjoy relaying the message to our students that a happy student is an involved student.
We want our school to be an inviting school where parents, the community, and visitors feel welcome.  It does take a large number of people to educate our students and we want this community of stakeholders to be a part of our school.  Please visit with us and I believe that you will feel the warmth when you walk in the front door.  Your opinion of our school will only make us more inviting.  Please let us know about your visit and/or your experience with Springfield Middle School.
Springfield Middle School is a great place for students to learn and begin the journey to adulthood.  We are proud to be in the middle of the scholastic years of young people.  We will work to provide the best education and transition into high school.  We embrace the middle school philosophy because we believe that it is best for our students. We are teaming in each grade level for our academic subjects (Math, Science, Language Arts, and Social Studies).
Thanks for visiting our website.  If you have questions, please call, email, or write.  We welcome your comments, suggestions, and questions.  Thanks for caring about public education and your student.  We know that you would not have visited this site if that were not true.
