Hello Spring Brook Parents –
Lost and Found
If your favorite sweatshirt, jacket, umbrella, hat, winter boots or banana case have gone missing, chances are good it's sitting on Spring Brook's Lost and Found table. Lost and Found will be available in our front hallway until 6/5. Any items left after that date will be donated. Come on in and take a look
Our next PTA meeting is on Thursday, May 23rd at 9:30 AM in the lunch room. This is our last meeting of the year! We hope you can join us and as always, children are welcome.

Calling all Box Tops for Education!
We will be wrapping up our spring Box Tops collection contest on May 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 the week of June 3rd. 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 $800 for Spring Brook! Don't forget to keep collecting Box Tops over the summer 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.
