With great sadness, our district must inform our students, staff, families and community of the death of one of our students. Dimitrius Smith, a sophomore at Springboro High School, passed away on November 19, 2014. Please keep Dimitrius' family and friends in your thoughts. Counselors are on hand for any Springboro High School student who may want to talk to someone during this difficult time.
EMC2 Robotics Team is Crowdfunding for Robot
The FIRST robotics team at SHS, EMC2, is using an increasingly popular technique called crowdfunding to raise money in order to build a robot and compete in tournaments. Crowdfunding uses social media to find and engage like-minded individuals interested in supporting a given cause. The site is https://springboro.ed.co/emc2. Edco matches donations with STEM Power Grants provided by various companies to support engineering education, so donations have double the impact. For more information, click here.
Grant to bring more science equipment to grades 6-8
Our district recently won a grant award of $14,475 to provide equipment for STEM activities at Springboro Intermediate and the Junior High School. The equipment, including microscopes, circuit kids, motion detector calculators, temperature guns and more will be available on carts that can be moved from classroom to classroom for sixth, seventh and eighth graders. This grant award will allow students to engage in more inquiry-based, STEM activities (science, technology, engineering and math).
Volunteer Background Check Information
With more than 1,500 active parent volunteers in our schools, it is important to have a consistent method for background checks across our district. All volunteers are required to have current BCI and FBI fingerprint background checks on file with the district.

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.
