Puzzle Competition

This past Saturday, Mrs. Willis took two teams to Auburn for the puzzle competition. There was team Tango, which included David Dai, Jacob Blair, Wyn You, Elizabeth McClendon, Wyatt Albertson, Anthony Lowe, and Ananth Reddy. This team was made from members of the Robotic class and honor Chemistry class. The second team named Sierra, included Anna Drake, Nam Dang, Langley Matthews, Caleb Doo, Carson Leva,  Venu Reddy, and Simon He. This team was made up of physic and honor biology students.

Team Tango came in third while team Sierra came in fourth. The top four teams had a close margin of a couple of points. The teams found that the puzzles were very interesting and challenging, but nevertheless it was all fun.  As a whole, both teams had a blast at the competition and both would like to do it again!

Easter Monday, April 17, 2017 – NO SCHOOL

Easter – the Resurrection of Jesus

Matthew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24, John 20-21, Acts 1

 

The Tomb Is Empty!

Jesus’ body was hastily placed in a tomb on Friday afternoon. There was no time to properly prepare the body for burial with spices and ointments according to Jewish customs. No work could be done on the Sabbath, so that task had to wait until Sunday.

Early Sunday morning, Mary Magdalene and several other women went to the tomb with the spices they had prepared. When they arrived, they found the tomb had been opened already. When they went in, they did not find Jesus’ body, and they wondered what had happened.

Suddenly, two angels in dazzling white clothes were there. The women were terrified, but the angels said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; He has risen! Remember how He told you that He would be turned over to sinful men, be crucified, and rise again on the third day!”

The women ran back to tell Jesus’ apostles what they had seen. Peter and one other apostle went to the tomb to see for themselves. They looked in and saw the linen cloths that Jesus’ body had been wrapped in but nothing else. Then they went home, amazed and confused.

Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene

When Peter and the other apostle went home, Mary Magdalene stayed outside the tomb crying. Suddenly she saw Jesus standing there, but she did not recognize Him at first. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who are you looking for?” Mary thought He must be the gardener and said, “Sir, if you have taken Him away, tell me where, and I will take Him!” Jesus said, “Mary!” Then she recognized Him and exclaimed, “Master!”

Jesus said, “Don’t hold on to me, because I have not yet returned to the Father. But go to my disciples and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”

Then Mary Magdalene went and said to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord!”, and she told them everything that had happened.

Physics class Egg-drop project

The physic class was assigned the task of creating a carrier for an egg from a very limited list of supplies. The goal was for the egg to be dropped from various heights and the egg remain in perfect condition. This class of Mimi, Caleb, Nam, Venu, and Simon was the first physic class at Springwood to have every student be successful. This project had the students calculate velocity, momentum, and impulse.

Headmaster’s Message for April

We trust Spring Break was a great time for all Springwood families. Our 2017 Dominican Republic Mission Trip was very successful. It is always a blessing to know we were able to help those in need and to share the good news of Jesus Christ.

Today, our Elementary Choir is in Prattville at the AISA Choral Festival and tonight is the 2017 Prom. The event tonight is at Oakhurst Farms and we look forward to a great time of celebrating.

Next week, we have our annual assessment testing. We encourage parents to take steps to help with preparation. Appropriate rest and heathy meals will go a long way toward students being ready for this important week at school.

Spring sports begin their journey toward the close of season with state competition in tennis along with track and field next week. Other competitions, including several other sports, Art and Technology, will follow in the weeks to come.

Recently, we’ve had a lot of families looking at Springwood. On Thursday, April 20 we will hold an Open House at 6:30pm for families of K4-1st Grade students. If you have any friends considering Springwood this would be a great time to invite them to visit.

The Spring Musical Suessical will be on Thursday-Saturday, April 20-22. Look for more details about this terrific program.

We hope you have a great month of April.

Chambers Junior Ambassadors Committee Application

The Greater Valley Area Chamber of Commerce has announced the opening of the application period for any students currently in grades 8-11 who may be interested in serving on the Chamber’s Junior Ambassadors Committee next fall.

CLICK HERE for a scanned copy of the application for all interested students.  Additionally, Mr. Owen has hard copies available to share to those interested students who wish to apply.

This is a great opportunity for students to begin building a high school resume for leadership and community service involvement.  Serving on GVACC Junior Ambassadors will provide a great chance to make friends from other high schools as well as to gain valuable service experience.

Each eligible applicant must complete the questionnaire, contact information, and permission pages in the application packet.  Additionally, all applicants must submit a resume describing the student’s skills, hobbies, interests, honors, and extra-curricular activities.

The chamber has extended the deadline for applications to be submitted to Monday, April 3rd due to our planned spring break activities here at Springwood.  However, it is recommend that any students who wish to apply have their applications submitted to Mr. Owen completed in their entirety by Friday morning at break on March 24th.  Mr. Owen will personally submit all applications submitted to him on Friday morning.  After that deadline, those who wish to still apply will be responsible for delivering their own applications directly to the chamber.

Do not complete the application in pencil.  Only use an ink pen or type it in a word document.

Remember, you can’t get selected by the GVACC committee if you don’t apply.  Best of luck to all of you who are interested and contact Mr. Owen if you need any assistance.
