Assistant Principal

August 25, 2018 at 19:38


Welcome to Spring Mill Elementary! As we begin a new school year, I am again, very enthusiastic about the opportunities that lie ahead for our students, faculty, staff, parents, and community.

I believe teamwork and open communication are very important. I know that together we will continue to ensure a positive and productive learning environment for our students. I am excited to help support the Spring Mill community, and I am eagerly anticipating meeting and working with each of you in the coming weeks. I look forward to the success of your child as he/she is challenged to reach full academic potential to maximize achievement.

Please understand that I embrace an “Open Door” policy, and I encourage you to stop in anytime with your questions and comments. I look forward to meeting all of you throughout the school year. 


Best wishes,

Chad Patsel, Assistant Principal
