• Dear Country Springs Family and Friends,

    I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. We have less than three weeks until Christmas/Winter Break!


    Mrs. Gire’s Choir performed at the Christmas Tree Lighting event at The Shoppes on November 22.  They sounded so good!  If you missed them there, you have another opportunity as they will perform, along with several other choirs at the Mormon Church on December 15 at 7:00 PM.


    As you will see upon arriving at Country Spring, most of the trees in front have been removed.  These were beginning to interfere with underground drainage system and our sidewalks.  The district will be replacing them with other, more strategically placed trees sometime in the future.


    Sixth Grade leaves for Outdoor Science Camp Monday morning!  Weather for the trip up looks cold, but clear!  Mr. Mackessy will be there from Monday-Wednesday PM and Mrs. Wilson will be at Camp Wednesday afternoon through Friday.
