INSPIRING STUDENTS

 

Elizabeth White WRBL  October 16 at 7:22 PM

#INSPIRED: Two Alabama football players are credited with lending a helping hand to a lady who found herself in a potentially dangerous situation. David Strickland, a football coach at Springwood School in Lanett, shares the moment with WRBL News 3. You can tell he’s so proud of these two young men, OJ Tolbert and Trevin Williams.

“Super proud of the character our guys display on the field and off the field. This lady lives across from Springwood School, and had fallen while doing yard work. Two of our players noticed this lady after practice laying on the ground and hurried to help her get onto her feet and into her home. She had been laying there for over an hour until our players noticed her. (Luckily she was unharmed from the fall) Football teaches you many things about life, and as a coach you can’t help but smile and be proud of your kids being helpful, and being leaders off the football field.”

 

 

Thank you, OJ and Trevin for demonstrating kindness. We are so glad “our neighbor” is okay.  


 SCHOLARS BOWL TEAM WINS FIRST PLACE

 

Springwood Scholars Bowl Team came in 1st place at the Southern Union Scholars Bowl Tournament in Wadley, Alabama on Tuesday. The team consisted of Amber Franklin, Sofia Shrewsbury, Cole Hoiness, Jordan Plank, and Jack Brown. Cole Hoiness was the high scorer for the team. Springwood’s Scholars Bowl Coach, Murphy Wood, said, ” We look forward to more tournaments in the future and continuing the strong Scholars Bowl tradition at Springwood School.” Congratulations Scholars Bowl Team!!

41ST SPECIAL DAY FOR SPECIAL PEOPLE

We are so proud of our senior boys and girls who wanted to attend and help with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers 41st Special Day for Special People event. Springwood students traveled to West Point Lake to make special needs individuals feel special. Students danced with individuals to a DJ, accompanied individuals to the petting zoo area, and helped bring joy to those all around. Thank you to all the sponsors who helped make this day possible.


COLLEGE INFORMATION

I wanted to remind seniors and parents of a few very important things regarding college planning and scholarships.

1. The FAFSA opened October 1st. All seniors should complete the FAFSA, even if you do not think you will qualify for federal aid. Many scholarships require students to complete the FAFSA before being considered for an award.

2. Students should apply to multiple colleges and universities. If you have not started the application process, you should start AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Charria Campbell from Southern Union visited with seniors yesterday. She mentioned that there is no application fee for SUSCC. I suggest that all students apply to SUSCC. There are many scholarship opportunities available.

3. Students must be accepted to a college or university before completing applications for scholarships at the institutions. The deadlines vary from school to school. I will be sending additional emails that include school specific information (deadlines, links to admission and scholarship information, etc.). I apologize in advance for the number of emails. It should make it easier for you to search school specific information if it is in separate emails.

If I can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to ask. Mrs. Pam Wood (pwood@springwoodschool.com) is also working with seniors’ college advising and is willing and available to help.

Sincerely,

Karen Kelley, Ed.D

PSAT WHEN WE RETURN FROM FALL BREAK

The PSAT otherwise known as the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test will be administered at Springwood School to students in grades 9-11 on Wednesday, October 10.

This is part of an academic competition conducted by the NMSC for the route of entry to the National Merit Scholarship Program.  Awards that are offered are explained on the following website:

www.nationalmerit.org

The mission of the College Board is to connect students to college success and opportunity by preparing millions of students annually for a successful transition to college.  You may learn more about their programs at collegeboard.org

The Springwood School administration of the PSAT will be in the FAC beginning at 8 am on Wednesday, October 10th.  All students will be required to have standard No. 2 pencils with erasers to complete the test (NO MECHANICAL PENCILS).

Students are asked to have a scientific or graphing calculator with them to use on the math portion of the test.  The list of acceptable calculators that students may use has been inserted below.

The entire administration of the PSAT with instructions will take approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes.  The actual test itself is 2 hours and 45 minutes long with two 10 minute breaks built in.

All students in grades 9-11 are asked to be seated in the FAC no later than 7:50 a.m. on Wednesday morning, October 10th (Note – this is the day we return from fall break.)

A copy of the 2018 PSAT/NMSQT Student Guide was distributed to students in grades 9-11, to utilize the practice tests and test taking tips for extra preparation for next week’s test.  For those students who wish to utilize some additional practice time before the test, they can access the Khan Academy website for free, personalized, online SAT practice.

Please plan accordingly for our PSAT administration planned for next week.  We will encourage our students in grades 9-11 whom will be testing to plan to get a good night’s rest, eat a healthy breakfast and to arrive at school early to be seated in the FAC by 7:50 a.m. that day.

I hope you all enjoy a relaxing and restful fall break and we look forward to our student’s doing well on the PSAT administration on October 10th.

October 3 Announcements

 

September has passed quickly and we are now truly into the fall of the year and, hopefully, cooler temperatures! We enjoyed several events and activities during the month including our annual Grandparents Day and several inspirational Sessions with our high school students. At Grandparents Day, Mrs. Miller did a fine job with our K4-6th grade students presenting folk songs of America. We also had outstanding results at the local art show as Mrs. Mary Vollrath (recently married) and Mrs. Delaine Horne continue to develop many aspiring artists.

This week starts a busy month of October. Monday our faculty attended the AISA Professional Development Day in Montgomery and the start of Spirit Week with a highly competitive ‘powder puff’ football game. Tuesday, the PTO fundraiser began. Homecoming on Friday, our Springwood family will welcome back many alumni.

Today, we celebrate several recent accomplishments at Springwood

  1. Our college advising program helped the class of 2018 receive over $2.3 million dollars in scholarships offered (second on the all-time list).
  2. Our graduates have been prepared for college… as we receive reports from various universities and colleges we see Springwood graduates achieving in their educational journey.
  3. Springwood has been an AISA Blue Ribbon School seven consecutive years.
  4. Springwood matched the school’s all-time highest score in the AISA President’s Award competition.
  5. This year, Springwood is educating 280 students that come from 25 cities representing two U.S. states and eight other countries. Amazing, when you stop and realize what can happen from right here in Lanett, AL.
  6. I remind people that we are not perfect but we support and uphold that Springwood embraces a Christian environment. Each day, our faculty and students perform many acts of kindness.

Remember that first quarter of the school ends Friday, October 5. Then we will have fall break from October 6-9. One important calendar reminder….upon our return to school on Wednesday, October 10 the PSAT will be administered to 9th – 11th grade students.

I trust you will have a great month!

Sincerely,

Rick Johnson

Headmaster

GOOD MANNERS AND KINDNESS

 

 

 

 

“Good manners and kindness are ALWAYS in fashion.” Thank you Mrs. Dudley, Director of the Junior Cotillion of Columbus, for teaching our Year II Cotillion Class the importance of handwritten thank-you letters, refreshment line, movie theater, and airplane etiquette.

 

 

 

 

 


SESSIONS

 

 

Wednesday in Sessions we studied the ENTIRE Bible in 30 MINUTES!!! Dr. Michael Plank had student’s write down their favorite movies on index cards. Dr. Plank then tied the movies, hand motions, and the seasons of the year together to explain the “bigger picture” of the Bible.

 

 

 

 

 


SEE YOU AT THE POLE

Wednesday Springwood students, teachers, and administrators gathered for “See You at the Pole”. This is an annual event where Christian students gather at a flagpole in front of their local schools for prayer, scripture-reading and worship, during the early morning before school starts. It takes place on the fourth Wednesday in September.
