Dr. Devearl Royster

Assistant Principal, 7th Grade Adminstrator

As the 7th grade administrator, I would like to welcome our new 6th grade students and their families. I hope I can earn your respect and trust by being one of your child's biggest cheerleaders and role models. We are glad to have you as part of the Springer family. At Springer, we have a tradition of excellence which continues today. Success does not come without hard work on the part of the staff, students, and parents. 

We expect all students to work hard each and every day. We expect our students to turn in assignments as directed and behave accordingly. We expect our parents to be available when needed for conferences and to support us with behavior issues.  We ask that they make sure that students are at school each day, on time, and ready to learn. There is no time to waste in our effort to push our student to the goal of high school graduation and college readiness.

The faculty and staff of Springer Middle school work with every student to stress that the responsibility for progress is not just for the present, but also for their high school lives that lie ahead. We welcome the opportunity to work with parents and community members alike to assist our students in their preparation for tomorrow.

 The middle school years are a time for students to own their responsibility in order to prepare them to be model citizens. As part of Springer's Positive Behavioral Support (PBS) program, all Springer students will be taught the BARK principles: B-Best Effort, A-Academic Achievement, R-Responsible Actions, and K-Kind Gestures. I am truly excited to be a part of the Springer Middle School family and to serve as one of our students' assistant principals. 

If you have any questions, I encourage you to contact me by email or phone or come by and ask for me at Springer.
