Welcome to our Springs School Spirit Store!
WHO ARE WE?
We are part of the Springs family just like you. As a collective, we saw a need that would benefit all of the Springs programs and decided to take action. The purpose and benefit of this store is to generate school spirit, as well as raise proceeds for our Educational Foundation that benefits our students and teachers.
Some of you may be questioning, what is the point of having items that advertise your school? According to some studies, "Students with school spirit do more than show support for their school. They perform better academically, are more
socially and civically engaged, and are happier in general than their less-spirited peers" (Varsity.com).
With so many school options out there today, the definition of school pride is much more expansive than just singing a school cheer. Today, school spirit is a sense of pride shown by those who feel a strong connection to their place of learning and the people in it. We hope our school spirited products will help to create an environment where students can recognize each other, and help to foster a larger sense of community and pride of the academic program they belong to, and the value it stands for.
The second reason why we started this venture, is to help raise funds for an amazing foundation that helps benefit Springs students and teachers in a wonderful way. Please read below to learn more about the Summit Springs Educational Foundation.
WHAT IS SUMMIT SPRINGS EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION?
Summit Springs Educational Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation that was established to raise money to provide scholarships to deserving Springs Charter School students as well as grants to teachers and support staff, who demonstrate excellence in their work.
The Foundation awards competitive scholarships to students who will be furthering their education at a college, university, or trade school. Each school year, twelfth-grade students from Springs Charter Schools will be eligible to enter the Summit Springs Educational Foundation Scholarship Program competition. In addition, twice a year the foundation awards grants to teachers and staff who embody the school’s mission and vision.
Our mission and goal is to provide our students, families, and staff with quality merchandise that promotes school spirit and pride. With each item sold, a portion of the sale will go to help generate funds to support the foundation in giving our deserving students and teachers generous scholarships and grants.
Thank you for stopping by and supporting our mission.
