The Voices of Inspiration Award was created by Freedom Credit Union and the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit to recognize and reward teachers throughout Montgomery County. Initiated in 2007, the Award honors exceptional educators and their commitment to students, families, and the community as a whole. The enthusiasm of the participating schools and communities continually set a strong foundation for the Voices of Inspiration Award, helping make it a great success and allowing us to pay tribute to teachers for years to come.

SFASD OFFERS SUMMER MUSIC LESSONS
All students in the SFASD students who are studying a string orchestra instrument are invited to participate in a 5-week private lesson program during the summer. Students who currently play the violin, viola, cello or bass, or would like to start a new string instrument, are encouraged to participate!
The benefits of summer study are tremendous, and private study will ensure continued musical growth throughout the summer months. Students will receive a half-hour private lesson per week for up to five weeks at a cost of $20 per lesson, and must attend a minimum of three lessons.
This series of private lessons will be taught by Spring-Ford string teachers will begin on Tuesday, June 23, 2015 and will conclude on Thursday, July 23, 2015. Click here to learn more, and to register.
2015-2016 KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION
Kindergarten Registration for the 2015-16 school year is officially open! As a district, we are using a new process for registering all incoming Kindergarten students that will assist in reducing the need for paper copies and a more overall efficient registration process.
If your child will be 5 years old by August 31, 2015, we strongly encourage parents to start the registration process now as starting the process allows the district to accurately make decisions for staffing and the number of classroom sections for the 2015-16 school year.
