Welcome from Principal Mrs. Kaufmann

Hello Springfield Families!

Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Elisabeth Kaufmann and I am replacing Cindy Mallory as principal here at Springfield Public School.  I have heard wonderful things about this loving and supportive community and am thrilled to join the Spitfire Team and meet all of you.

I know together we can help our students to be their best and achieve success.  We recognize that every child is special and unique and is a gift.  We also know that when we work together for the good of the whole community, we achieve great things.  We want to encourage our students to get involved in every aspect of school life and where possible encourage parental engagement.

At Springfield, we have a wonderfully supportive parent council and we are always looking for new volunteers to help organize events, run our nutrition program and support outdoor educational activities for our students.  Please get connected and help us to support our students in these ways if you can.  Feel free to drop by the office for more information on how to get involved.  Many of our members have graduated on to new endeavours along with their children and so we are in need of community involvement.

I thank you for the warm welcome I have received thus far.  I know that Cindy was a huge part of the school community and I understand that she will be missed.  I would like to honour her memory by getting involved and getting to know all of you.  I have been given the impression that Springfield is small but mighty and that the students here are wonderful.

Thank you for the opportunity to work with your children.

In education,

Elisabeth Kaufmann, Principal
