January 9 Announcements


Springwood Athletics Coca Cola Truck Sale

We are excited to announce that Springwood Athletics will have a Coca Cola Truck Sale which begins today (January 9th) and ends on Friday, January 20th.  All proceeds from the Coca Cola Truck Sale will go towards Wildcat Athletics.  Once the order forms and all monies are turned in, we will schedule delivery date and times and communicate to all.  Delivery and pickup will occur at Springwood School at a location to be announced later.

There are two ways in which you can participate:

1- Purchase a case (24 count) of Coca-Cola products from someone who is selling the cases.  Each case will cost $24 ($1 per bottle…you won’t find that at any store).  Please pay the seller when you order.  Make checks out to Springwood School.

2- Sell cases to ANYONE in our area who would like to buy a case of Coca Cola products for a great price.  Simply download the form attached and begin selling.  Remember, money is due once the order is placed with the seller.  If you fill up the order sheet…download another and resume selling!!!!

This spring, we plan on making some upgrades to our baseball and softball fields.  All proceeds will go towards these upgrades.  If you do not have a child that plays baseball or softball, We would still like to ask that you serve Wildcat Athletics by purchasing or selling cases.  Please email me at ddorsey@springwoodschool.com if you have any questions.

Thank you for you consideration.

GO WILDCATS!!!!

Headmaster’s Message

Happy New Year!

We are excited about the beginning of second semester and look forward to all that is on the horizon for 2017.

Before school started this morning, we had an electrical malfunction in the high school building. The Fire Department came to check everything along with personnel from the City of Lanett power department. The high school students were gathered in front of the gym and then to the FAC. We are now proceeding with classes in alternate locations until the building is authorized for use.

This semester will be busy with many activities and opportunities for our students. As we begin we truly hope you and your child(ren) have a fantastic semester.

Sincerely,

Rick Johnson

Headmasters Message for December

December has been a busy but productive month at Springwood. The All-School Christmas program drew a standing room only crowd and the message of Christmas was shared in a unique and beautiful way. Our thanks to Mrs. Miller and Mr. Zabel for teaching our students in theatre, chorus and band and providing opportunities like this for them to develop their skills.

High school students are completing exams today and we also will enjoy the 9th grade Christmas program. This outstanding program developed by Mr. Dale Freeman has been performed each year for 35 consecutive years as we conclude the first semester. It, too, helps us to reflect on Christmas.

Now, as we close the semester to enjoy quality time with family and friends, we express our appreciation to all Springwood families for their support and commitment to Springwood School.

As you consider your end-of-the-year giving options, please keep Springwood in mind. Our 2016-17 Annual Fund drive is underway and we hope to have 100% participation from our families. We ask each family to consider giving in relationship to how the Lord has enabled you to do so. The goal we have is PARTICIPATION.

The succinct request… If you believe in what Springwood is doing to provide a quality education can you demonstrate that with a gift that reflects your belief?  

Donate now

 From all of us at Springwood… MERRY CHRISTMAS!


 

 

The winners of the can food drive are Ms. Jones’ K5 with 92 cans and Mrs. Hamer’s 5th grade with 277 cans.  Congratulations!

The school total for donated cans is 2,442.

Thanks to everyone for your support!
