National Junior Honor Society


National Junior Honor Society recognizes students for their contributions as caring community members as well as for their academic achievement.  Initial consideration for NJHS is based on a student's GPA, and applications for eligible students will be provided in the spring.  In the meantime, interested students may use the attached forms to keep track of their extracurricular activities and service hours completed during the 2018-2019 school year.

From the PTA Presidents - August 2018


Dear Springman and Attea Families –


Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!


We are the co-presidents of this year’s PTA and wanted to welcome you back to school!  Our goal is to continue to promote a sense of community between the two schools and encourage participation among all parents. Being part of the Springman-Attea PTA (SPAT PTA) is a great way to connect with your school, its teachers and administration. There are many opportunities to be involved this year and we are excited to begin! We realize how busy everyone is with kids, work and other commitments and truly appreciate any level of involvement and support.


We will communicate via eblast every Monday. The eblasts will be the primary form of communication between the PTA and its members and will contain up to date information about what is happening with the PTA at the schools. We understand that many people cannot attend the PTA meetings and want to find a way to encourage participation regardless. There will be a brief synopsis of each meeting on the website ( along with a link of the detailed minutes. We would love to hear from you with any ideas throughout the year. Please contact us at


Thank you to all who have already volunteered to work with the PTA. We still have many opportunities for those who are interested to help, whether it be behind the scenes at home or at the school participating in functions. Please see the SPAT PTA website for more details.


Join us on September 11th at 9:15 at Attea and learn more about how to get involved!


Looking forward to a great year ahead!
