Volleyball Additions to the Schedule - We have added junior high and high school volleyball games to the schedule. The teams will be playing Kim at Springfield on October 4, 2022. The junior high game will start at 3:00 p.m. with the high school game following directly after.
Today's cross country course at Syracuse was a fun one but does measure longer than the normal 2 miles for junior high and 3.1 miles for the high school. The Longhorns were ready for the extra distance with 4 of the 5 runners placing in the top 10 and improving their times from last year. Combined they cut 5:53.14!

Congratulations to Springfield High School's Student of the Week!
In an effort to recognize students who are going above and beyond to exemplify the qualities that the student body selected as those of a Longhorn, a new Wall of Fame will be added to our weekly student awards. Longhorns can be nominated by any staff member or student, but the criteria are high. Those who are nominated should be showing these characteristics daily in an extraordinary way.
The first names to add to our Longhorn Wall of Fame are the Student Council representatives who presented at the September School Board meeting. Ella Swanson, Brakelle Westphal, Kendall Myers, Lainee Leathers, Savana Abrams, Aliya Cohoon, Cooper Stolebarger and Rayne Thomas demonstrated to the Board of Education that they know what it takes to "Be a LONGHORN." These students were willing to step up to a challenge. They discussed with the board that they are willing to learn, kind, respectful, and strive to be successful, all while exhibiting a positive attitude. Great job StuCo!
TIME CHANGE: High School Volleyball games at Wiley on Friday, September 30 will start at 3 PM. There will be two games, JV and V. The calendar states that the games will start at 4 PM.
What a wonderful day for cross country! In their 4th meet in two weeks, the Longhorns didn't let tired legs get in their way as 3 personal records were broken and a school record! The course at Johnson is always one of their favorites. The team heads to Syracuse next Saturday.

Springfield High School Student Council members made a presentation to the Springfield Board of Education at the regular September board meeting. The students talked about the start of the 2022-23 school year and the unique challenges that they are facing as students at SHS this year. One of the main topics in their presentation was the challenge of taking classes without an in person teacher. This is a very real challenge in the face of significant statewide teacher shortages. The students spoke eloquently and honestly about the school year and their experiences. They exemplify what it takes to Be A LONGHORN! The student council is sponsored by Mrs. Renee Loflin.
Yesterday, the Longhorn Cross Country team traveled to Ulysses. The over 90 degree temperatures and long hills made for a challenge but the runners ran great and did an amazing job supporting each other. All six of the runners finished in the top 20! The team heads to Stanton County on Saturday.
