Message from the Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians
It is with much enthusiasm that we anticipate the beginning of the 2019-2020
school year, which will begin on Tuesday September 3, 2019. We are excited to
welcome your return for this upcoming academic year at Spruance School. This
year promises to be a very exciting one for our students. Many great events have
been planned by our staff, our students, and our Home and School Association.
Gilbert Spruance Elementary is proud of its students, staff, parents, and our
community. Last year, we had a number of significant school accomplishments that
made headlines throughout the city. Our students continue to accomplish great
things. One of our biggest accomplishments was our rating as a Model School in the
area of Student Progress on our PA State School Progress Report. A list
summarizing the 2018-2019 accomplishments will be posted on our website, and
will also be included in our school brochure and handbooks.
Even as we have begun to make consistent academic gains, we realize there is still a
great work to do. Together, we must contine to work collaboratively to improve the
academic success of each student. As educators and parents, our challenge is to help
ALL students view school as an unlimited opportunity for achievement. Together,
we can enable our children to reach for and to attain academic success.
Spruance’s doors are always open to our families. We look forward to meeting with
you to see how we can continue to partner together to support our students. We
believe that with your help, we can achieve our mission, vision and school motto of
“High Expectations for Every Kid, Every Day, in Every Class!”
Best wishes to you, enjoy the rest of your summer, and we look forward to seeing
you and your child at 8:30am on September 3 , 2019.
