4TH GRADE FIELD TRIP

Mrs. Drake’s 4th grade class visited the Making Alabama Bicentennial exhibit at the Bradshaw Library. Students were greeted before normal operating hours with a scavenger hunt to help guide the exploration of the 200 years of history on display. The on screen displays along with the beautifully curated exhibit, provided a great visual of the history of Alabama and the impact of our county. Students received a passport to have stamped as they come back to participate in the many upcoming events hosted by our incredible local library. This is a beautiful exhibit celebrating the history of our state. We’re thankful for the hospitality and great experience.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE

Springwood Family:

Throughout the weeks and months I hear many positive comments about our students. We know they are not perfect but, indeed, many make such an impact. Since we are in the month of February, we wanted to relay this story to you. I hope you will take a few moments to read it.

7th grade student Addison Turner is a good student and plays JV basketball as well as golf.  Addison’s Mom stated…A huge thank you to Coach Dorsey for investing time into Addison’s life. Addison LOVES Coach Dorsey and he is the main reason we chose Springwood. Though most people don’t know it, Addison is a young man with a congenital heart defect.

CHDs are present at birth and can affect the structure of a heart and the way it works. They can affect how blood flows through the heart and out to the rest of the body. CHDs can vary from mild (such as a small hole in the heart) to severe (such as missing or poorly formed parts of the heart).

Recently, I spoke with Addison about his condition and he expressed a desire to help our school over the next few months and especially this week which is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness week (February 7-14). Addison shared that he was thankful because Springwood gave him the opportunities he was not afforded at other schools and he wanted Springwood Athletics to benefit from his initiative. He, along with his number one fan, Tae Crowder, of the University of Georgia, are raising awareness about CHD by having people purchase shirts through a company that donates a portion of the sale to a designated charity. Addison has designed the shirt which can be purchased in long or short sleeves.

Addison has already seen many respond to his appeal. Last week at his church, after sharing his story, the members purchased 40 shirts. To help Addison and his family accomplish his goal and to also support Springwood Athletics please click on this link to order and purchase the shirt of your choosing.

We are all blessed to have Addison, a young man with a true Humble Heart, to be a part of the Springwood family. Thank you for your time and consideration of this young man’s effort. I know he will appreciate your help.

HEADMASTER’S MESSAGE FOR FEBRUARY

Happy February! We are anticipating another great month at Springwood.

We closed January with another state championship at Springwood. The Middle School Scholars Bowl team claimed the AISA State Title in impressive fashion on Monday, January 28. Congratulations!

Hopefully, by now you’ve seen a message about priority enrollment which occurs at Springwood during the month of February. This process is very valuable in helping us to prepare for the next school year. Enrollment has remained consistently above 275 students this year. We continue to have new families inquiring and also visiting the school. Most of these occur due to our families sharing with other families the benefit of the Springwood experience. We know Springwood is a great choice for education. Please share this opportunity within your circle of influence.

Looking ahead, we want to remind you of these dates:

February 18 – President’s Day (No School)

March 6-8 – Interim Week (Grades 7-12)

March 25-29  – Spring Break

April 15-19 –Assessment Testing Week (Grades 1-8)

April 22 – Easter Monday

Also, remember your gift to the Annual Fund. Our emphasis for the Annual Fund is participation. Please remember The Influence of One as you consider your gift!

February we always see an increased emphasis on love… remember this…“Where there is love there is life.”


 

 

 

 

 

 


DISTRICT SCIENCE FAIR

Springwood Students placed in the District Science Fair held at Southern Union on January 31, 2019

Recently, six Springwood students competed in the District Science fair at Southern Union’s Opelika campus. Emily Sands, a Springwood 4th grade student and Connor Moseley, a Springwood 5th grade student tied for second place in the Physical Science Division.

Each participate had to conduct a scientific experiment based on a question that they developed and then display their scientific data on a tri-fold board. Students were then interviewed by three judges and were asked to explain their overall projects and results.

Emily Sands created a project that scientifically determined which soap solution would make the biggest bubble. Connor Moseley’s project scientifically showed which drinks stain teeth the most. Mrs. April Haney, the Springwood elementary science teacher and science fair sponsor stated, “[They] began preparing for this event before Thanksgiving and did an amazing job at the competition! They are extremely excited about moving forward to the State Science Fair!”
