SCHOOL PROJECTS

Springwood 8th graders just completed a project where they had to design, assemble, and fly a glider made with only 3 materials; clay, a sheet of foam, and a stick of balsa wood.

Each group documented every detail of the design process and individual flight plans to end the project by creating a manuscript for a how-to guide. They combined their knowledge of business structure, design ideas, and creative writing to successfully complete the project.

A huge thanks to Mrs. Mabrey for supplying the project materials!

SPRINGWOOD CONNECTS ACROSS MILES


 

 

From Opening Day in Tampa Bay from Springwood’s two biggest Red Sox fans.  Mr. Owen met up with our very own Dallas Pearson and his family for the Rays home opener against the Red Sox.

Unfortunately, it didn’t go our way as the Rays rallied late to win 6-4.  Dallas and Mr. Owen got together next to the field after the game to discuss the Red Sox bullpen meltdown. Still had smiles to share as Springwood connects across the miles.

 We hope everyone had a great SPRING BREAK!

In the  3 photographs above, we are at the midway point of the 2018 Springwood Mission Trip. Our group has done well in the Dominican Republic. It is great to serve in the name of Jesus with our mission partner SCORE International.

In the collage of photos below we are in the final day of our 2018 Springwood Mission Trip… our group used Service as a focus for the week that included painting parts of 2 churches and 2 houses, providing food to over 60 families, visiting a school and orphanage and sharing the gospel with many. Many stories to tell.

GRANT RECEIVED FROM DIVERSE POWER FOUNDATION

Congratulations to Mrs. Gasaway and Mrs. Speir for receiving an educational grant from the Diverse Power Foundation for an Elementary Genius Lab.  The Genius Lab is a S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Lab that is intended to foster critical thinking through problem solving that will provide students with life-long skills in these areas. Project Genius Lab is intended to further provide science-based educational experiences with integrated technology for learning.

It will allow for different learning methodologies in the classroom and provide our students with an academic edge over the competition.

The funds for the grant are provided by Diverse Power’s Operation Round Up Program.  Thank you Diverse Power!


TO MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF 2019 FROM MR. OWEN

Dear Junior Class Members of the Class of 2019,

Picking a college might feel like a long and overwhelming process. There’s so much to consider and narrowing your options to just one can be hard.

That’s why I suggest you create a list of colleges that you like and could possibly see yourself attending. To help you begin, read the information and download the tools found on this page.

https://www.act.org/content/act/en/students-and-parents/class-of-2019.html

They will help you consider your goals and expectations and how they may match or differ with different institutions.

Doing your research now and creating a college list saves a lot of time when you have to apply. You’ll know enough about the colleges to only apply to the institutions that are the best-fit for you.

Remember to plan to get an ACT or SAT score recorded no later than the June administration so you know what areas to target for improvement to take the test one more time next fall.

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.
