Hello Spring Brook Parents –

Charleston Wrap Fundraiser

The PTA Fall Fundraiser is under way! Fundraising packets were sent home with students Friday. This is a catalog and online fundraiser through Charleston Wrap, which offers fun and unique wrapping paper, quality kitchen and home items, and much more! Last year, with the help of our awesome parents and staff, the Charleston Wrap fundraiser helped raise over $6,000 for Spring Brook PTA, which helps pay for things like field trips, Ice Cream Social, teacher requested supplies, and student resources. We hope to exceed last year's sales this year so that the PTA can do even more for Spring Brook!

What you can do to support your student with this fundraiser:

- First, read the welcome letter included in the Charleston Wrap packet

- Register your student online at using our School ID provided on the form (z-11280)

- Obtain your student's Charleston Wrap student ID upon registration

- Share your student's Charleston Wrap link through email using the registration page, through Facebook, and any other social media you use! The majority of our sales were online last year, and it's a great way for distant family, friends, or even co-workers to support your kids!

- Submit orders on 9/23 or sooner

- Make all checks payable to: Spring Brook PTA

This year, we have some great incentives for the students to get excited about and earn during the fundraiser! Turn in prize coupons throughout the fundraiser and receive prizes in the classroom!

If you have any questions or suggestions, please email Tiffany Malik ( or Marissa Kopp (

Thank you for your support!

Calling All Art Awareness Volunteers

During shifts, volunteers check-in books, interact with students that visit the LMC (assist kids with picking out / finding appropriate books), help check-out materials, assist in the MakerSpace, shelve books, and help with special projects.
