Health/Physical Education

Message to the Community

On behalf of the physical education department, I am excited about the future of our health, physical education and athletic programs.

The Springfield Board of Education and Administration is committed to providing all students with education of the highest quality. Academic success is not enough; students must learn to work as part of a team. With a curriculum that empowers students to practice health enhancing behaviors that support lifelong wellness and an athletic and intramural program that has character development and competitive sportsmanship at its core, the goal of the department is to develop competent and caring young adults who know how to set goals, prioritize needs and wants, and balance their lives. With a collaborative effort from students, staff and administration, parents and community, the Springfield school district will accomplish its goals and remain at the forefront of educational excellence.

I look forward to being part of the Springfield school district team and working with each of you. I am available at your convenience to answer any questions regarding our department..

Very truly yours,

Lance Jacobs
