SPRINGFIELD PLATTEVIEW COMMUNITY SCHOOLS HITS

HIGHEST ENROLLMENT IN 15 YEARS WITH 1,154 STUDENTS

Another student spike has put Springfield Platteview Community Schools at a Y2K enrollment level.

Springfield Platteview has gained 72 students from last spring to push its 2014-15 school year enrollment to 1,154 in preschool through 12th grade. This is the district’s highest student count since 1,159 attended during the 1999-2000 school year. Springfield Platteview also experienced a 6 percent enrollment increase last year.

Platteview High School has 381 students this year – its highest level since 2006-07. Platteview is up 37 students compared to last year. There are 101 in the freshmen class.

Westmont Elementary School continues to grow. Westmont has added 50 students in the past two years to push its enrollment to 271. Platteview Central Junior High School is up 13 students from last year to 173 in seventh and eighth grades. Springfield Elementary School is down four students from 256 a year ago to 252. The district has 77 preschool students.

As part of its strategic plan, Springfield Platteview has placed an emphasis on retaining and attracting students to the district. The enrollment bump also could aid Springfield Platteview down the road in regard to Learning Community funding. The district will lose $2,159,220 in Learning Community common levy funds during the 2014-15 school year.

“More enrollment may not be what we want in our district as far as more crowded schools, but it is essential to our district getting additional funding in the future through the Learning Community’s common levy until changes can hopefully take place,” Springfield Platteview Superintendent Brett Richards said.

“King O’ The Moon” Opens at Lofte

The Lofte Community Theatre will open the family comedy-drama, “King O’ The Moon” on Saturday, August 30.  Written by Tom Dudzick, “King” is Part II in a trilogy loosely based upon his family life in Buffalo, NY.  Part I, “Over the Tavern,” was produced by the Lofte in 2009.  “King O’ The Moon,” follows the Pazinski family’s journey into the rebellious 1960s, just as Apollo 11 is about to land on the moon.  The family gathers together to remember their father, Chet and catch-up with each other in the midst of the Civil Rights movement and the Viet Nam War.

Directed by Kevin Colbert, the production has one actress reprising her role.  Cheryl Grimshaw again plays the strong Pazinski family matriarch, Ellen.  Joining her onstage as the rest of the Pazinski children are Joshua Smith of Plattsmouth, Eddie McGonigal of Omaha, Benjiman Pettiford and Kaitlan Scates-Pettiford both of Bellevue.  Meredith McAdams and Ed Cutler round-out the cast.  

Production dates for the show are August 30, 31, September 5-7 and 12-14.  Tickets are $19.  Curtain time on Fridays and Saturdays is 7:30pm.  Sunday matinees are at 2pm.  Reservations can be made by calling the Lofte box office at (402) 234-2553.
