Program Spotlight: UPES Student Baristas
Last week, the Student Baristas from Upper Providence Elementary School donated proceeds from their Friday sales of the Coffee & Tea Cart to the Eagles Autism Foundation! The Coffee/Tea Carts were decorated with Philadelphia Eagles signs, streamers, and pictures, including some favorite players like Jason Kelce, Brandon Graham, Devonta Smith, and Fletcher Cox.

Each Friday at Upper Providence, staff have had the opportunity to purchase a brewed coffee and/or hot tea delivered by our team of Baristas. Baristas work very hard to restock items, interact with peers and adults, exchange money, make change, and honor staff’s "Loyalty Cards." Baristas are encouraged to interact with their peers and teachers while working on following directions and taking turns, while responding appropriately and using their Communication Devices to comment and answer questions.

Preparing students for life beyond the classroom is the ultimate goal, as is finding fun and functional activities to work on during the time our students are in our classrooms.

2023-2024 Calendar
The 2023-2024 school calendar was approved on Monday, January 23, 2023. This fall, we'll welcome students back to school on August 28, 2023 and wish them farewell on June 6, 2024.

New next year, Spring-Ford will utilize two Act 80 days. An Act 80 day allows school districts to offer professional development or parent/teacher conferences during the work day, while still being able to "count" the day as a student day. Watch this month's episode of Board Table Talk to learn more about Act 80 days.

Also new next year, the Class of 2024 commencement date is included in the calendar! We’ll celebrate our seniors on June 5, 2024.

We're pleased to bring Board Table Talk back to our regular mix, and welcome new School Board President Erica Hermans on the show for her first episode.

Spring-Ford Wants Your Feedback!
We would like to hear from you! Spring-Ford is considering offering 1:1 tutoring for students.  Tutoring would be held live via Zoom and will be based on your child's specific needs.  The company that we are considering would use data provided by the district to identify specific skills that your child needs and tutoring sessions will be personalized to your child. Pre- and post-assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of the tutoring sessions, and families would have the availability to provide input into their perceived needs. Click here to learn more, and share your feedback.
