Springdale Elementary School

Tulsa Southside Rotary adopted Springdale Elementary School at the request of David Hughes’ wife Leslie, a teacher at Springdale. Since then, the club has continued to play a very active role in Springdale’s advancement: reading to classes, painting playground equipment, mentoring individual students, handing out fruit and candy to students at Christmas, and helping wherever a need arises. Thanks in large part to Southside’s involvement with a special math program, the school was removed from the list of “at risk” schools.
