Springdale Public Schools will be on the Alternate Means of Instruction Plan this week, March 16 - March 20. Students are asked to complete their AMI daily assignments until school resumes. Please click below for lesson plans.
If you have not completed the Archer Learning Model Survey, please do so by August 5th. The survey will allow families to identify whether your student will attend on-site all five days or under the blended model.
Welcome Nurse Gershner!!!
I received my BSN from the University of Central Arkansas in 1982. I have been a school nurse for 17.5 years. My prior nursing experiences are in coronary care, home health and ambulatory surgery. I love to hunt and fish and adore my 3 dogs and 2 cats. I have one son who graduated from medical school in May and is now in San Antonio for his 5 years of general surgery residency. My husband and I have been married for 30 years and he is a cardiovascular perfusionist. We have lived in Fort Smith for the past 5 years and are so glad to be coming home to Springdale!
Welcome Mr. Pollitt!!!
Originally from San Francisco, CA, I moved to AR in 2000. I attended Berry College in Rome, GA, where I played collegiate soccer and double majored in Economics and Business Administration.
I had a career in sales and marketing for 30 years, which in turn, led me to working with Springdale Public Schools. Through my visiting the various schools within the district, I began to volunteer my time at several schools. It was at this time in 2013 that I realized my passion for making a difference and investing in young students' lives.
In 2015, my wife, Melissa, and I welcomed our daughter, Lyla, to the family. Becoming a parent for the first time further revealed my desire to explore a different career path. After substitute teaching for two years throughout Springdale Public Schools, I worked full-time at Sonora Middle School as the ISS facilitator and LLI assistant. I am currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Teaching through Harding University.
I look forward to being a part of the Archer Aviator crew and helping to guide our students in their future endeavors.
In my free time, my family and I enjoy any outdoor activities, most especially boating, biking and backyard leisure.
