Hello Spring Brook Parents –

Spring Fling Pre-Orders

We are extending the deadline for pre-orders until next Wednesday, February 27th. Skip the lines on the night of the event and go straight into the school by pre-ordering your child's wristbands, food and raffle basket tickets.

The majority of the raffle baskets have come in and they are amazing! Thank you all that donated items/money to your child's room parent to help out with the basket. See you all at the Spring Fling Beach Bound night on Friday, March 8th from 5-8 p.m.

Spring Fling Volunteers Needed

We are just days away from the Spring Fling on March 8th! Thank you all that have volunteered to help out for this fun event. We still need about 70 more adult and student (high and middle school) volunteers.

Below is the link to sign up. Thank you in advance for helping us make this event a huge success.
