Students Visit Washington DC
One of the most significant parts of the eighth grade trip to Washington DC is the group's visit to Arlington National Cemetery. This year, Junior High School students Madison Boeh, Kelsey Saylor, Zach Kauscher and Josh Gillum were selected to represent Springboro in a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. They carried a wreath in a solemn presentation after the changing of the guard. On the trip, students visit several memorials including the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, the FDR Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the National World War II Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Iwo Jima Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial. Students tour the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Smithsonian’s American History and Natural History Museums, the National Cathedral and the National Zoo. They also see the U.S. Capitol building and The White House. On the way back to Ohio, the students stop in Gettysburg where battlefield guides board the buses to take students through the battlefield and the events of July 1-3, 1863. The trip ties to eighth grade studies and student projects in history, literature and science.

Rotary Presents Dictionaries to Third Graders
On October 10, the Rotary Club of Springboro continued the annual tradition to provide every third grader with his or her own dictionary. Members of the Rotary Club presented third graders at Dennis and Five Points with dictionaries, which are given to each student for personal use to encourage curiosity, strong study habits and research skills. “It’s one of the many ways our students come to learn that they are part of a larger community and that our community supports their learning,” said Todd Petrey Superintendent.
District Reminds Families that
"Parents Who Host Lose the Most"
Springboro Community City Schools is partnering with area law enforcement and community leaders to remind our district families that “Parents who host lose the most.” The health and safety risks to our students far outweigh any possible reason to host or allow teenage drinking.
