HEADMASTER’S MESSAGE

Overall, we had a very busy but productive finish to our school year. We trust the summer has started well for each one of our Springwood families.

The CVEF Board of Trustees was involved in a planning retreat in early June. Additionally, our faculty and administrative team had productive post-planning days. We continue to work through the details of concluding the 2018-19 year but also the excitement of preparing for a great year in 2019-20…the 50th year of Springwood School. We are always striving to improve the school and I believe this will occur again.

Our campus remains busy as teams are working out for the fall season and, this week, the baseball and softball camps are being conducted. Additionally, we’ve already had two other camps. Next week, the Springwood cheer teams will be traveling to Troy University for their summer camp. We also will host the Challenger Soccer camp.

We remain at a good pace with enrollment. Please share within your circle of influence the good news about Springwood. It is still important to remember to promote our school. Many of you use Facebook and other social media platforms… please share information from the official Springwood School facebook page. We hear often from many, that Springwood is the best kept secret in the area…let’s change that this year! Please check the website for summer reading information and be looking for back-to-school packets in mid-July.

Wherever your summer travels take you…please be safe.

Thank you to our Springwood families for supporting Wildcat Workday last Friday. Wildcat Workday would not be successful without the involvement and support of so many.

Also we appreciate the donations of items for the various projects, including the many cases of water and the baked desserts for our picnic lunch.  Lastly, thanks to our volunteers and drivers who assisted our students throughout the morning in numerous ways as we completed 23 service projects throughout the area.

HEADMASTER’S MESSAGE

It is May Day!

It seems the end of school comes sooner each year. We are at an exciting point as we plan to  experience many ‘moments’ over the next few weeks and I hope we can enjoy each of them. As a reminder, recently, the information about the end-of-the-year responsibilities and schedule was mailed to all families. For your convenience, it is also posted below today.

Updates:

  • 17 school days until the conclusion of the year
  • Recent one-day SGA blood drive had 22 donors (just shy of the Springwood record-25)
  • AISA Blue Ribbon Award update…Springwood has earned enough points in the President’s Award competition to secure an 8th consecutive Blue Ribbon Award
  • Class of 2019 scholarship offer total has risen well past the $1 million mark
  • Standardized testing successfully completed.
  • Spring sports all qualified for state playoffs
  • District Art Show…Springwood produced 29 ribbon winners and 7 state qualifiers
  • Beauty and the Beast musical…outstanding crowds and fantastic reviews

Reminders:

Please check the calendar, which has many other events listed.

Thank you for supporting our on-going goal of providing a superior education to all students in a nurturing environment. We appreciate many who have shared the positive news about Springwood; as stated before…when we inquire of visiting families how they heard about our school…the most common answer is a neighbor, family friend, or co-worker. Please continue to share and also invite them to see firsthand how we maintain focus on the education of the mind, body, and spirit.

It is a blessing to serve the families of Springwood.

AISA ELEMENTARY TEACHER OF THE YEAR

 

 

Springwood School’s second grade teacher, Patti Slade, was selected as the AISA Elementary Teacher of the Year at the AISA Student Government Association’s State Convention held in Montgomery, Alabama.
Springwood School’s Headmaster, Rick Johnson, commented on Mrs. Slade’s character as a teacher.

“At Springwood, Mrs. Slade is a teacher respected by her peers, parents, students, and administrators. As students enter her classroom each day, Mrs. Slade is very prepared for instruction. The most notable characteristic I see is her consistent enthusiasm for teaching. Smiling and speaking with a tone of excitement she makes her classroom come to life each day. She is patient and welcoming. Her students respond in a very positive way to her leadership.

We are excited and pleased for Mrs. Patti Slade in being selected as the AISA 3A Elementary Teacher of the Year.”

Mrs. Patti Slade has taught for 39 years with 35 of those years at Springwood School.

CONGRATULATIONS, Mr. Patti Pattillo Slade
