Volume 1 • Issue 5 The Spanish River Vision Our vision is to create a nationally known high school highly regarded for its academic excellence, while helping all students prepare for and be accepted into post secondary education or careers.

A Message from the Principal Dear Spanish River Family, On behalf of the faculty and staff at Spanish River High School, it is indeed an honor and a pleasure to welcome you to Spanish River High School for the 2017-2018 school year! I hope that each and every one of you had a safe and enjoyable summer. Now it is time to get back to business. As always, teachers and administration have been working diligently to prepare for the upcoming year. Some have attended curriculum workshops, trainings, or conferences this summer. We at Spanish River constantly search for new and innovative ways to support and encourage the success of our students in the classroom. Everything we know about successful schools indicates that they are so effective because of collaborative school partnerships between the parents, teachers, students, and the community. We look forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure that all students enrolled at Spanish River High School are able to achieve their highest potential, both within the classroom, as well as outside of the classroom. All students will be respected as individuals, and are expected to respect the rights and property of other students, faculty, staff, and the school. Each year we strive to enhance and improve our communication efforts with our students and their families. If you would like to receive information from Spanish River relating to school events, important dates, or emergency information, follow us at Spanishriverhs.org, on Twitter at @Latsonw, @RiverGuidance and @RiverPTSA. This will allow you to receive updates via social media from the school. This year’s Freshmen Orientation is scheduled for Monday, August 9th from 9:00am to 12:00pm. The orientation day is structured in a way so that the focus is on important information about the school’s practices, how to navigate the campus, organizational skills, study skills, and the identification of a mentor for freshmen who can assist them throughout the year answering questions and providing them with support. During the Freshmen Orientation, students receive their tentative class schedule and are able to purchase a locker. At 11:00am on August 9th in the theater, there is the parent orientation for the parents/guardians of incoming freshmen. This presentation by Principal Latson, the PTSA and Guidance Department will focus on tips and information for parents which can be utilized to aid their child in getting off to an extraordinary beginning in high school. You will be able to tour the school with your child after we break at 12:00pm. We are looking forward to a very successful school year and to the great things our students will accomplish this year. Enjoy the rest of your break with your family and we look forward to the start of school. Sincerely, William R. Latson, Ed.S Principal

Hello, my name is Keri Sommer, and I am very excited to join the SRHS Sharks family as the new Early Childhood Education Academy Instructor, as well as the new Director of Little Sharks Preschool.

I have a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction, and over 20 years of teaching experience from PK-12th grade (the bulk of which was at Addison Mizner). I am hoping to offer valuable experiences to the Early Childhood Academy students while helping them teach students in Little Sharks and Kinder-Sharks. Upon completion of the Academy program, students will earn their Early Childhood Professional Certificate. I am so excited to be a Shark! In fact, I have always been a Shark. My husband Lee and I are SRHS alumni. Go Class of ’92! I have lots of great memories of Spanish River, and I very much look forward to making more.

At the end of each year the class picks one of their favorite art works to recreate for the “class picture.” This year they chose “Spiral Jetty” (an earthwork) made by Robert Smithson in 1970, in the Great Salt Lake, Utah. The class arranged themselves in a spiral on the ground outside of the 8000 building. Jason Kristol’s father photographed the class. He then went home and superimposed us on the jetty. The finished project amazed and excited us all! A great memory and artwork they will NEVER forget!!
