News for our Springboro Schools District Community
On November 24, Joe Petrosky, a sophomore at Springboro High School, passed away. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. The loss of a student is difficult for all of us, particularly at this time of year. On Tuesday, counselors are on site for SHS students and staff. Please be sensitive to our students, families and community as this news is shared.

SHS Students Inducted into National Honor Society
On Thursday, November 19 Springboro High School’s chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) inducted 88 new members. NHS high school students have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but it also challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service. Also at the NHS induction ceremony, students recognized four outstanding teachers with Excellence in Teaching Awards. Jack Hanson was given the freshmen teacher award. Chris Rowe received the sophomore teacher award. Laura Houston was given the junior teacher award. Rory Korzan received the senior teacher award. These teachers were selected by a vote of the NHS chapter members. To see the full news release, click here.
Parent Group Forming for Families with Gifted Students
Our district is launching a new parent group for the parents and guardians of students who are identified as gifted. Parents are invited to a special meeting on Tuesday, December 1 from 7 to 8:15 p.m. in the Springboro High School Library. Angela Grimm, Parent Division Chair for the Ohio Association for Gifted Children (OAGC), will offer the meeting’s keynote titled Harnessing the Power of Parents: How Districts and Parents can Work Together to Support Gifted Students. All families with students who are identified as gifted or superior cognitive is invited to attend this meeting.
Words of Gratitude at Dennis Elementary
What started as a teacher appreciation idea from PTO volunteers at Dennis Elementary quickly turned into a wall of thanks. The "tree" has grown from a few "leaves" to hundreds of thank you notes. In the main hallway at Dennis, you can see how the students, staff, and volunteers at Dennis are coming together in November to show gratitude to all of the people who make Dennis a great school.
2015 Testing Reports to be Sent Home Soon
During the 2014-2015 school year, Springboro students took new state tests tied to Ohio’s Learning Standards in English language arts, math, science and social studies. This fall, parents will receive reports on their child’s results on these tests. Some—but not all-of the test reports and information have been sent to the district. Rather than send parents different reports over the next few weeks, we will collate the reports for each student and then provide them to parents with a guide to help parents read and understand the reports all at one time. Look for this information to come home in late November/early December. To provide our district families with more information on state testing, Springboro Schools created a webpage with FAQs and important links. We will update this page throughout the school year as new information becomes available.

Springboro Community City Schools Posts Quality Profile
The Quality Profile is designed to be a companion to Ohio’s Local Report Card because it includes additional accountability measures that define a high-quality education in ways that are not captured on the state report card. Springboro’s first Quality Profile provides a snapshot of operations and achievements.
