May 10 - National School Nurses' Day!
In 1974, President Ford proclaimed School Nurse Day as a holiday for everyone to celebrate. On this day, school nurses have been recognized and celebrated for their continuous effort in the health and well-being of students everywhere.

Thank you for your endless hours of work planning and preparing for this school year, for answering countless questions and communicating with families, students, and staff, and for your patience and professionalism through it all.

Spring-Ford Nurses are simply amazing!

Celebrate Spring-Ford's XL Teacher Appreciation Week
Teacher Appreciation Day is typically recognized the first Tuesday of the month and usually falls in line with Teacher Appreciation Week. Teacher Appreciation Week is the first full week of the month. This year, NEA and PTO Today pushed the week-long celebration to May 8-12, as the week prior isn’t an actual full week. Join Spring-Ford online in celebrating our teachers for an extra large Teacher Appreciation Week celebration from May 1-12. Check Spring-Ford's Facebook and Instagram accounts for teacher highlights, a special Teacher Appreciation video on May 2nd, and a message to our School Nurses on May 10th.

Hosts Kelly German and John Brennan will all the important questions: how'd you get here, where'd you get your dress, what are you most looking forward to, and so much more! New this year, Man on the Street Bill Culp will catch prom-goers on their way in.

Mrs. German shopped the Spring-Ford SNAP Prom Dress Boutique for her show attire, and Mr. Brennan will be decked out in a tux from the Red Carpet Show Sponsor, Sagets Formal Wear. Live From the Red Carpet will air on RCTV’s YouTube channel starting at 5:50 p.m.
