At Spring Lake Park Schools, each student in grades 7-12 meets one-to-one with their counselor for personalized learning at least once each year to talk about and plan for the future. Counselors balance these proactive meetings with support for day-to-day student needs.
SLP Experience is a print and electronic publication produced several times each year that offers a look into life at Spring Lake Park Schools across school buildings and grade levels. Watch for the bigger stories of Panther pride and purpose in your email and home mail.
A house is rising from the Spring Lake Park High School parking lot off 81st Ave. This is where students in our new construction trades course are building a single-family home that will move into our community next summer. It’s the latest example of community partnership and how our career and college pathways are preparing students for their futures.
As a new year gets underway, a full continuum of supports is available in our schools to support students’ academic, social, emotional and behavior development and needs.

This fall has been so fun. After several years impacted by pandemic, our collective energy – students, staff, families and community – has been directly refocused on learning.
In this issue of SLP Experience, you can learn more about the first days and weeks of school. Our staff have turned our vision to action as they have purposefully taken steps to get to know each student by name, strength, interest and need. No matter the age of the student, the investment our teachers make now in knowing each student and creating a sense of community and belonging in our classrooms, sets the foundations for the learning to come.
Coming into the year, we share a community focus on pandemic recovery. Academic gaps, social development and mental health concerns have been ever present in media reports and are top of mind. Our district staff, principals, and teachers are focused on meeting the needs of each child, further strengthening a full continuum of academic and social, emotional and behavior supports. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to learn more about what we are doing to support student learning and well-being.
Finally, in the spirit of beginnings, you may notice a structure starting to rise from the Spring Lake Park High School parking lot off 81st Ave. This is where students in our new construction trades course are building a single-family home that will move into our community next summer. It’s the latest example of community partnership and how our career and college pathways are preparing students for their futures.
New beginnings don’t just happen. They are often the result of a tremendous amount of work and support. Thank you for your support of our schools and helping make new beginnings, like this school year, possible. I look forward to cheering on our Panthers throughout the year with you!
