 SEE YOU AT THE POLE

 

See You At The Pole (SYATP) is a movement that began over 25 years ago. It originated with one youth group, meeting at several schools in their community during a weekend retreat. It has now grown to an international event. SYATP brings students to their school flagpoles to intercede for their leaders, schools and families, asking God to bring moral and spiritual awakening to their campuses and countries.

The Springwood Fellowship of Christian Athletes will lead the gathering at the flag pole again this year for the annual ‘See You At The Pole’ rally. This years theme is “FIX OUR EYES”, Hebrews 12:2.

Faculty, staff, students, friends, and family, please join us on Wednesday, September 27 at 7:35 am in prayer as we gather.  We are blessed to be able to freely pray at Springwood not only today but every day!

We look forward to a positive and busy month of September. Here’s some of the dates you will want to note on your calendar:

Monday, September 4 is LABOR DAY

 

Labor Day….What does it mean?

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

 


NEW ETIQUETTE PROGRAM FOR NEXT YEAR’S 6th – 8th GRADES

Springwood has an exciting opportunity for 6th-8th grade classes.  We have partnered with the National League of Jr. Cotillions to conduct an optional program (additional fee) for the 2017-18 school year that will involve onsite courses and 2 social events.  This program, led by Mrs. Jackie Dudley of Columbus, will provide students with valuable knowledge of manners and social etiquette in today’s world, as well as some really fun dances and dinner events.  The majority of the classes are scheduled during (the latter part of) the school day and would not interfere with extra-curricular activities!

The first class will be held on September 13 for students in 6th-8th grades that signed up last year from 2:10pm-3:00pm.

Any students that are interested in joining these classes that did not sign up last year, please email Jackie Dudley at columbusjrcotillion@gmail.com.

Monday, September 4 is LABOR DAY

 

Labor Day….What does it mean?

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

 

 


5TH GRADE IS HAVING FUN WHILE LEARNING

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mrs. Crocker’s 5th grade class went on an egg hunt to learn about prepositions and prepositional phrases.​ It was a great learning experience and great fun at the same time.


NEW ETIQUETTE PROGRAM FOR NEXT YEAR’S 6th – 8th GRADES

Springwood has an exciting opportunity for 6th-8th grade classes.  We have partnered with the National League of Jr. Cotillions to conduct an optional program (additional fee) for the 2017-18 school year that will involve onsite courses and 2 social events.  This program, led by Mrs. Jackie Dudley of Columbus, will provide students with valuable knowledge of manners and social etiquette in today’s world, as well as some really fun dances and dinner events.  The majority of the classes are scheduled during (the latter part of) the school day and would not interfere with extra-curricular activities!

The first class will be held on September 13 for students in 6th-8th grades that signed up last year from 2:10pm-3:00pm.

Any students that are interested in joining these classes that did not sign up last year, please email Jackie Dudley at columbusjrcotillion@gmail.com.
