Due to inclement weather, Cleveland County Schools will be operating on a three-hour delay today, March 7th. All schools will begin their day exactly three hours later than the regular start time. Morning bus pickup times will also occur three hours later than normal.
All ten- and twelve-month employees are expected to arrive at school at the earliest, safest time, striving to arrive at your normal time.
Payton Mitchell was recently recognized as Cleveland County's "Do the Right Thing" Award Winner.
Payton's teacher, Mrs. Wesson, nominated him for this honor. She wrote:"Payton is an awesome young man in every way. He demonstrates exemplary character in all situations he encounters. Recently, Payton witnessed another child doing something wrong. Payton told me about the incident in private because he knew it was wrong. Even though the other student was a close friend, he let me know about it. He frequently volunteers to do jobs in the classroom that the other students do not want to do because he is such a helpful young man. He always does his best in all aspects of his schoolwork and is willing to help others when they do not understand a concept. Finally, I have seen Payton, on many occasions, go sit with a student who has no one to sit with at lunch without being asked.
We are proud of Payton!
Congratulations to Ms. Ellen McCraw on being named as Springmore's Teacher of the Year and Mrs. Sharon Mellon on being named as Springmore's Teacher Assistant of the Year!
Ms. McCraw is Springmore's Art Teacher and Mrs. Mellon is a teacher assistant in 2nd Grade.
Both Ms. McCraw and Mrs. Mellon were both nominated and elected by their colleagues. They are certainly deserving of this honor... CONGRATULATIONS!
- reading nightly with your child
- posting sight words around the house in various places and having your child read them as they pass by
- instead of having your child recite the alphabet, have them tell you the sound each letter makes
- encourage your child to sound out cvc (consonant-vowel-consonant) words as they see them in books, magazines, around the house, and while out and about in the community.
- as your child reads, have him/her touch each word as they read it to assist with one-to-one correspondence
- after reading, ask your child to tell you about the story and provide details. Ask them questions about characters, plot, sequence and setting.
Kindergarten students recently celebrated the 100th day of school! This was a great opportunity to incorporate what we have been learning in math such as counting to 100 by ones and tens, grouping objects, sorting, using ten frames, and skip counting. Children brought in food items to make a snack of 100 items using 10 each of 10 different items, made 100th day headbands using 10 strips with 10 stickers per strip, made 100th day necklaces using 100 Fruit Loops, and completed their own 100's board by writing the numbers 1-100.
We had a great time showing everything that we have learned the first 100 days of school!
Springmore is now enrolling next year's kindergarteners!
Please contact our school office for more information.
Kindergarten orientation will be held in all elementary schools Friday, March 28. Sessions start about 9 a.m. at all schools with registration beginning about 8:15 a.m. Parents will attend information sessions while their children visit with the kindergarten teachers. Sessions should last until about 10:30 a.m.
Children who will be 5 years old on or before Aug. 31, 2014, are eligible to enroll in kindergarten in August.
Parents should bring these items to orientation:
- An official birth certificate – not a hospital record – that may be obtained from the Register of Deeds office in the county where the child was born.
- Proof of residency such as a driver’s license or a copy of a current lease or real estate document, power, telephone or water bill etc.
- A completed North Carolina Kindergarten Health Assessment Report. Forms are available at schools, the County Health Department and many doctors’ offices. The law requires a health assessment be completed within 12 months of the day a child first enters kindergarten. Health assessments and immunizations are available at the Cleveland County Health Department for those who do not have a regular doctor. Appointments should be made as soon as possible.
- An updated immunization record that provides medical evidence of the following vaccinations and the required number of doses:
- Haemophilus Influenzae type B (Hib)
- Hepatitis B (Hep B)
- Varicella (chickenpox)
More specific immunization information is available at this site: http://www.immunizenc.com/parentsschoolreqs.htm
