Turkiest Teachers Support Project Outreach
Since 2000, students in 7th grade raised money for Spring-Ford Project Outreach through the “Turkiest Teacher” coin collection fundraiser. This year, students in grades 5 and 6 joined in the fun to help raise a grand total of $1,221.51!

This years Turkiest Teachers are...

  • 5/6 Grade Winner: Mr. Hillegas
  • 7th Grade Winners: Mr. Fickert and Mr. Kahler

Thanks to the students and staff for planning this fundraiser!

About Spring-Ford Project Outreach: Spring-Ford Project Outreach provides community outreach, emergency assistance services, and other programs for those in need in the Spring-Ford area. Two weekly food distribution sites and a wide range of service programs are available to aid and assist our residents in need. Project Outreach is staffed primarily by volunteers and supported by 25 local churches. Click here to learn more.

Community Thanksgiving Project
Last year, the Hansell family (and many dedicated volunteer friends) created 90 Thanksgiving meal baskets for Spring-Ford families in need. This year, the volunteer dream team distributed more than 150 baskets throughout the community! Through this project, they ensured that families received a basket full of all the food supplies they would need to enjoy a complete Thanksgiving dinner with their families. The baskets included all dry and canned foods and mixes, a certificate or gift card for a free turkey and pie! One volunteer said, "It truly is amazing to see how much the Spring-Ford community cares…every basket item is donated by community members, for community members."

Mrs. Trianosky, many thanks for coming in after your maternity leave with excitement and care for your new students.

Cold Weather is Coming, Know the Plan!
This year, Spring-Ford Area School District built one Emergency Day into the calendar and plans to utilize Virtual or Flexible Instruction Days (FID) in case of an emergency closure. A Virtual Day or FID will be used for an unplanned school closure and will eliminate the need for a make-up days at the end of the year. On a weather related Virtual Day, students will follow a modified schedule with virtual lessons via Zoom or Teams synchronously for a portion of each period. If there is a need to call a Snow Day, the first Snow Day of the year will be a “traditional” Snow Day and April 5, 2023 will change to an In-Person school day.
