Whatley Words of Wisdom:

Why do we say, "Trick or Treat"? This phrase suggests that if a treat (like candy) is given, then the child will not perform a "trick" (mischief) on the owner of the house. However, I would be very cautious of not trying the "trick" or "treat" on your teachers! LOL, have a great and safe Halloween, btw....I like candy!!

Principal’s Corner:

We have had an awesome first nine weeks of school. PAWS was a huge success and I am so proud of our student body for showing up to that event. Also, I am very proud of our students in FCA for leading that event. PT Conferences went well and we appreciate all our parents for coming and visiting with us and investing in their child's education. We are looking forward to finishing this semester strong. It's so great being a Spring Hill Bear!

Fall Festival

New To The Crew

Allison Steed is a new teacher here at Spring Hill Elementary teaching second grade. Before coming to Spring Hill she would always hear that Spring Hill is like one big family. She has only been here for three short months now and she 100% agrees we are one big family. Allison Steed had students taught and subbed at some very big schools in the Little Rock and Benton areas. She has been welcomed into this close-knit community. The thing she is most excited about is watching the growth in my students throughout their year in my classroom. I can't wait to look back at the end of the year and think about how much they have accomplished. It will be very hard to say goodbye to my first group of babies as they go to third grade, but it will make my heart so proud to think of all their success!


Allison Steed

I decided to come to Spring Hill because of its reputable ag program. I enjoy participating in agricultural E activities, including FFA. Now that I am enrolled here, I have enjoyed spending time in Mr. Plyler's class and traveling around to FFA contests representing Spring Hill. I am still taking classes in my old school in addition to what I am taking at Spring Hill and I believe both schools offer a lot of good things. I feel at home in both and they each offer many opportunities to make new friends! Before Spring Hill, I did not have an FFA to participate in so I am glad to finally be involved in that. It's the friendliness of everyone here at Spring Hill that makes it so much fun to come. I was not here very long before I had several friends to visit with in between classes and attend games with. I have four younger siblings; Gatlin, Wade, Blair, and Cora. Something I appreciate about Spring Hill that sets it apart from other schools is the relationship the teachers have with the students. Some of the teachers I am not even taking classes with come and chat with me during lunch period and make sure everyone is enjoying their day. After high school, I hope to attend the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. My plan as of right now is to double major in Animal Science and Agribusiness and I am considering earning my Masters in Animal Science with a pharmaceutical endorsement.

Writers Block

Emma Rhodes

Emma Rhodes is a second-year journalism member ,she chose journalism because she thought it would be new and fun to try! She is one of the best writers in the newspaper. One thing she likes about journalism, it is always interesting to be able to interview someone and learn something new about them. Some skills Emma has learned from this is accountability, organization, communication skills, and writing skills. She plans on taking journalism next year. Outside of school, Emma enjoys spending time with family and hanging out with Briar. I also enjoy playing softball, reading, and being outside.

I plan on going to college at either Harding or Arkansas University. My goal for this year is to make it to state in basketball this year. I plan on making my future occupation as a lawyer. I will miss all my teachers especially, Mrs. Smith and Lew, when I’m gone. My advice for underclass men is to take all the financial planning with Mrs. Smith. I’ve been at Spring Hill 12 years. I play basketball and work at Chick fil a. My favorite memory at Spring Hill was winning state in the 9th grade.

Lilli is a senior at Spring Hill High School. She plans on going to college at Arkansas State, in Jonesboro, AR. Her goal for this year is to make many memories and cherish the moments she has this year because she won't get them back. Lilli wants to be an X-Ray technician. Lilli will miss most about Spring Hill seeing all her friends every day. “I feel like I will miss being at school because it has been a routine since I was 5.” Lilli’s advice to underclassmen is to “never give up, even when you take that one test and don't get a good grade it will all be okay and it will get better. Also even though your teachers seem strict they are really just here to help you and get you to the next step.” Lilli has only attended Spring Hill since the start of this semester. She moved here from Louisiana. Lilli loves to play softball and volleyball. Lilli works at Amigo Juans in Hope. Her favorite memory at Spring Hill so far has definitely been going to the football games and being at the pep rallies.

It is a faith-centered biopic of the young Phil Roberston and his life before he became well known on the popular reality series “Duck Dynasty.” This movie focuses on the ideas of redemption and forgiveness as it shows Phil’s Christian testimony and him coming to God!
