Surprise Homecoming For Military Family At Spring Meadows

One of Spring Meadows' parents, Amanda Hooper, US Army/PV2, recently surprised her kids with a special unannounced homecoming. The Spring Meadows Hawk family helped surprise the boys by having them take a photo in front of our Christmas tree with their mom in the background without their knowledge. The boys were shown the picture to see if they liked it and the looks on their faces when they finally realized their mother was in the background was priceless! The rest was tears of joy, hugs, smiles, and love. 

Ms. Hooper graduated basic training from Fort Jackson, South Carolina in November and continued her AIT training at Fort Lee, Virginia, where she will graduate on the 17th of January. She hasn't seen her boys since August.
Thank you for your service to our country, Mrs. Hooper!

Miller's Point Read Around The School

Just before students at Miller's Point Elementary were released for the holidays, they enjoyed a yuletide story that came to life for them on the stage.  The Grinch made an appearance and re-enacted his holiday story. What better way to learn to love reading than participating in Read Around the School. Reading groups and buddies enjoyed short stories that were read by different staff members throughout the day! 


Judson Healthcare Students Help With Blood Drive

Community service projects are good initiatives for students to work because it underscores the importance of thinking of others.  Judson High School Medical Assisting and Radiology students recently participated in a blood drive to help those who need the gift of life.  The holidays are typically a time of year when blood supplies run low and opportunities like this truly help out those who are in need at hospitals and various healthcare facilities.  Frances Smith Owens helped organize the student participation in this drive.  


Candlewood Students Take On The DoSeum

At the DoSeum, Candlewood fourth graders had the opportunity to explore all sorts of STEM concepts. They got their hands on to robotics, built circuits, and had a scavenger hunt to learn about sound waves and energy forms. They got to investigate 3 stations. At the snap circuits station they built different circuits to produce lights and sounds. At the robotics station they had the chance to design and build a pet alarm letting the owner know when to feed the pet. Finally, for the scavenger hunt, they went through the light and sound area trying to identify which activities used electricity. What a fun trip!!
