National Merit Scholarship Program – Commended Student



SPHS principal, Mr. Jon Cuttitta, announced today that Zoe Blank has been named Commended Student in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation, which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to this scholastically talented senior.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2020 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2020 competition by taking the 2018 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

“Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools played in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

Congratulations, Zoe! Go Spartans!

Montessori School – Great Start to a New Year!


The Montessori School year is off to a great start!

The students have gained better understanding and confidence in using the Montessori materials  after the first two weeks of orientation. Now the “children of the house” are renewing and making new friendships, practicing their courtesy and patience, and expanding their independence, skills and abilities.  They are also enjoying themselves with letters, sounds, reading, numbers, maps, colors, shapes, handwriting, Spanish, music, gym, computer, science, story-telling, field trips, holiday parties, and so much more to do! 

Thank you to Mrs. Beres for these photos and information. Go Spartans!

“Be Safe” – Mansfield Police Department Visit


Following the launch in the elementary school of the PBIS program that encourages good behavior with the focus being prevention, not punishment, first grade teacher, Mrs. Scheurer, invited the Mansfield Police Department to visit with her students about the “Be Safe” aspect of this year’s theme–“Be a Spartan! Be Safe! Be Respectful! Be Responsible!”

It was certainly a very good visit with the police officer who talked with students about many ways they can “Be Safe” and ensure the safety of others, too. And there’s nothing better than getting your photo taken with a police officer. Thank you to the Mansfield Police Department for the visit. Go Spartans!
