Spring Woods Christian Academy 

 

A Pre-4 student asked his teacher “Why does a flamingo hold up one leg?”

Teacher replied –  “Umm, why?”

Student – “If he held up both, he’d fall down!”

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10”

Be A Volunteer for the Ponderosa Elementary Mentoring Program

Prayerfully consider serving as a mentor. You only need to have an open heart, willingness to be yourself and the ability to give a minimum of thirty minutes once a week to a student. If you would like to be a mentor, you will need to go to the Spring ISD website and select the volunteer tab in order to complete the background check information. Please send Pastor Steffon your name and email address. Additionally, if you have a specific grade or interest where the school can place you this will help in pairing you with the child who needs you most.  The program should start up by the end of October.  Send your name and email address information to sarrington@springwoodsumc.org.
