Springfield Teachers’ Association Offers Annual Erma Lee Mathews Scholarship In 2020 the Springfield Teachers’ Association (STA) awarded a scholarship to Tatelyn Lasley, who is in the final year of the Teacher Education program at McPherson College in Kansas. The scholarship has been awarded since 1979. STA members fundraise to both fund the scholarship and donate to charitable causes such as the Lion’s Club Toy Drive. STA is now taking applications for the 2021 scholarship. The Erma Lee Mathews scholarship is open to Springfield High School graduates who are currently in their junior or senior year of college and are pursuing a career in education or working with children. The application should include a cover letter; a transcript; and two letters of recommendation, one from a professor and one from a person in the educational field with whom the applicant has worked. The cover letter should include, but is not limited to, the applicant’s goals, volunteer experiences, and impetus for pursuing a career in education. The application deadline is March 1, 2021 and should be mailed to Renee Loflin, STA President, Springfield School District, 389 Tipton St., Springfield, CO 81073.

Format - All girl's games will be played first (JV, Varsity). At the conclusion of the girl's games, the gym will be emptied of all spectators, players, etc. so that it can be cleaned and sanitized.

Boys spectators are discouraged from arriving early; you will be asked to wait outside or in your vehicle until the appropriate time. Concession Stand - The concession stand will be open. Please practice social distancing while in line. Food and drink will not be allowed in the gym but can be enjoyed in room 3. This will help to expedite the cleaning process between games.

Wise words we can all learn from.
High School and Junior High basketball games begin soon! Attendance to games will be limited, and the County Health rules of the hosting team will determine what those limits will be. For home games parents will be given top priority. In fact, if a game were played today, we would guarantee all player’s parents could attend. As it has been overstated the last several months this situation remains fluid. Attendance and even game schedules can, and most likely, will change as we progress through our winter sports season. We will do our best to notify the Springfield community about changes through our webpage, emails, and Facebook. In addition, changes will be made public on a daily basis through the school bulletin. Stay tuned for game details as they become available. We appreciate your understanding as we face unprecedented times.
