Hello Spring Brook Parents –
Kindergarten Orientation Date Change
The date for Kindergarten Orientation has been changed from February 13 to April 10. Pre-registration for incoming Kindergarten students will be sent in the near future.
Our next PTA meeting is on Thursday, January 24th at 9:30 AM in the lunch room.
We hope you can join us and as always, children are welcome!
Calling all Box Tops for Education!!
We will be wrapping up our winter Box Tops contest on January 31st. Every completed collection sheet returned to school by the 31st will be entered into a prize raffle for a chance to win a free Oberweis ice cream cone. Prizes will be awarded in February. The more sheets submitted, the more chances your child has to win. Be sure your child’s name and class is on the collection sheet, Ziploc bag, or envelope.
So far this year we’ve earned over $600 for Spring Brook! Please keep collecting Box Tops as an easy way to fundraise for our great school.
For further questions or prize donations for our next contest, please contact Amy Sullivan at email@example.com.
