Hello Spring Brook Parents –
Field Day Lunch
On Wednesday, June 5th our students will be participating in Field Day. Please send a disposable sack lunch for your child to enjoy on this day. You can provide your own drink or milk will be available for purchase. To accommodate our Field Day activities the lunch schedules will be adjusted slightly, but all students will receive the regular amount of time for lunch and recess. If you have any questions please contact Julie Vogel at 630.428.6606 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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
LMC Volunteers Need for the 2019-2020 School Year
My name is Luciana Rodriguez and I'm Spring Brook's Library Media Center (LMC) Volunteer Coordinator. We're looking for LMC volunteers for the 2019-2020 school year.
The volunteer schedule has three time slots per day: 9:00-11:00 a.m., 11:00-1:00 p.m., and 1:00-3:30 p.m. Volunteers have an assigned day and time slot every week or every other week, with two volunteers per shift for the school year. During shifts, volunteers check-in books, interact with students that visit the LMC (assist kids with choosing books), help check-out materials, shelve books, and help with special projects. It's a fun way to become involved at Spring Brook and meet teachers, students, and Spring Brook families!
If you would like to join our LMC team and be added to the schedule for the upcoming school year, please email me with the below information at email@example.com

Thank you for your interest in the LMC program. Spring Brook kids love coming to the LMC and that is only possible with the help we receive from wonderful volunteers.
