On Tuesday, March 13th the K3
class did an egg drop to go along with their lesson on Humpty Dumpty. Teacher
Mrs. Trish Bryan sent home zip-lock bags for students to stuff with their
choice of filling. Student Brayden Robinson told us he chose to fill his bag
with cotton balls. The goal was to have enough cushioning to stop the eggs from
breaking. “We decorated a shelf to match the look of the wall in Humpty
Dumpty,” Mrs. Bryan told us. Each student was given a boiled egg to put in
their bag and the experiment began. In the end, seven of the nine eggs cracked.

On Wednesday, March 14th FCA held a rally
to commemorate the school shootings that have happened in the past few
months. Wednesday was National School Walkout
Day but instead of walking out, the students gathered in the gym to play games,
listen to testimonies, and have a group prayer for the victims. As the students
made their way into the gym, beaded necklaces were handed out, each
representing something from the Bible. FCA members Abigail Hayes, John Hampton
Hewlett, and Natalie King also performed a worship song called "We are No

-The Lift-A-Thon is a fundraiser for the
Thomas Heyward Weight Room and Football Program. This will be the first ever
lift-a-thon at Thomas Heyward Academy. During the lift-a-thon there will be
50/50 raffle, food, and much more.
How does it work?
- The lift-a-thon is basically the same
thing as a walk-a-thon which a person will give a pledge such as .10 cent for a
pound. So, if a person lifts 500 pounds the donor would owe $50. In the weight
room the athletes will do three lifts, such as bench, squat, and power clean. The
grand total of all the lifts will be the number of pounds they lifted that day.
When is it?
-The Thomas Heyward Lift-A-Thon will be
on March 24th.
Are there any prizes?
-Yes, there will be a
50/50 raffle and $100 gift cards for the people who lift the most weight, pound
for pound, and the person that brings the most money per pound.
