Principal's Weekly Message - August 21, 2017
Hello Spring Brook Parents - I would like to welcome you to the start of a new school year as Thursday, August 24, is the first day of school for Grades 1-5. Kindergarten students will follow the schedule they received in the mail. We will follow our normal arrival and dismissal procedures on the first day. The doors will open at 8:50 and we will welcome the students as they proceed directly to their classrooms. We are looking forward to an exciting and wonderful school year!
We love volunteers at Spring Brook! Your child will bring home a “Volunteer Application” this week. This form must be completed and returned to your child’s teacher if you volunteer this year.
