Important Partnerships

Springfield Local Schools is fortunate to have many partnerships which truly benefit our students. Recently, area leaders came together to kickoff the new school year and continue to explore strategies, programs, and ideas to foster an environment in the area that promotes a prevention and reduction of substance abuse and substance abuse-related problems. The Springfield Area Prevention Coalition (SAPC) is designed to host parent and student trainings, collect youth survey data, and generate awareness for all community members about the importance of a preventative approach. Members of the coalition include those employed in law enforcement, health fields, pharmacies, schools, government agencies, and mental wellness.

SMS is proud to continue recruiting and placing students on the committee. Like in past years, SAPC and SMS targeted 7th graders in the recruitment process -- an ideal age when many students begin to deal with the pressure of trying new things that can have adverse effects.

We are proud to participate in the SAPC leadership team - I join SMS students Drew B, Kailye D, and Reed S as Board Members as well as students from SHS and the district's Director of Federal Programs Paulette Baz and Community Liaison Kristina White. Together, we provide reflection from the important student/school district perspective as SAPC begins developing programs for the upcoming school year.

SMS Welcomes Mrs DePompei and Be the Change

For more than a decade, Springfield Middle School (SMS) has had two school counselors facilitating programs for the students. Recent SMS retirements presented the opportunity to shift personnel to create an additional SMS School Counselor position. Over the summer, we welcomed Mrs. Kelsey DePompei - she moved to SMS from the high school and brings with her so much to offer our students and staff..

With the additional School Counselor, more social/emotional support mechanisms are available, as each counselor is assigned to one specific grade and will follow those students during the duration of their years at SMS. Among her years of experience as a school counselor, SMS is excited that Mrs. DePompei will be bringing the "Be the Change Club" to the building. This is a familiar program at the high school, as Mrs. DePompei started it in years past, and the concept will be very similar. The mission is to promote kindness and to create a safe community and learning environment for all students. The club will work on projects that promote the mission- including spirit weeks such as "Start with Hello" and "Red Ribbon Week". The goal is for the club to be something that all students in Springfield can eventually participate in to encourage positive behavior and healthy relationships both in and outside of school. Past data has shown the club to be successful in reducing discipline referrals and improving school climate.
