Vine Hill Bears competed in the Science Fair and county spelling bee in January.   Our Science Fair winners will head to the county science fair next month. Kindergarten registration for 19.20 has opened, and our office is getting busy!  Classrooms are having Writers’ Workshop publishing parties to share the amazing writing students have been working on. Recently, the fabulous Vine Hill PTA hosted a free ice cream social, and are now focusing on the upcoming auction.

Brook Knoll has been off to a busy start this 2019!  In January, we celebrated the Great Kindness Challenge. Students enjoyed a week-long celebration including themed dress up days, learning different kindness quotes, and doing as many acts of kindness as possible.  On the last day, students created a kindness chain that stretched the border of our entire playground and on each link was written an act of kindness – over 2,400!  We jumped into February with our annual science fair.  A record number of students participated this year with several of them qualifying to the county science fair to be held in a few weeks.  We are also extremely excited that we’ve broken ground on our new track project!  This project is entirely funded by Brook Knoll families, the Brook Knoll PTO, and generous community members.  Expected completion date is later this spring.

Our first Jam in January in our new Beebe Gym was a huge success!!!  We had a great turn-out and raised over $2700 at our basketball tournament.  A highlight of the evening was the half-time preview of the upcoming Lion King musical. Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who made this event so awesome!

At SVHS Falcon Pride is in full force this winter.  Thanks to our dedicated and tireless Student Government we have seen record turnouts to many events.  Winter Formal, held annually at the Coconut Grove, was a hit with over 500 students attending.  This was followed by our Talent Show and Fashion Show, highlighting our best singers and designers.  If you're interested and seeing our wonderful students in action keep an eye out for our upcoming events which include the Drama Club student produced winter play (one night only), Battle of the Bands, and Cabaret Night.  Of course be sure to catch our annual Art Night too.  Event dates and times can be found on our school calendar.
