Principal's Weekly Message - October 10, 2017

Reported by on 10/10/17

Hello Spring Brook Parents,

Charleston Wrap Fundraiser - Ordering Deadline Expended
Thank you to those who have already placed your Charleston Wrap orders. So far we have almost $5,000 in sales. In order to get closer to our goal of $12,000 the deadline has been extended. If you or someone you know still wants to oder it is not too late to submit order forms or complete online orders through Thursday, October 12th is the last day you can submit order forms. Its also the last day to order online and choose "ship to school" and also to have your sales count toward your child's prizes. After the 12th online purchases throughout the year will still benefit the PTA even though this fall fundraiser has ended. Your child will not continue to accumulate prizes after October 12th. For further ordering instructions please refer to your Charleston Wrap package. If you lost your package there are more in the front office. If you already submitted your order form but have another order(s) there are blank order forms in the office as well. Just put your child's information at the top of your new form along with their original Charleston Wraps Student ID in the empty Student ID spot.
Please make checks payable to Spring Brook PTA
If you have any questions about the fundraiser please email Thank you in advance for your support.

Box Tops for Education Collection

Spring Brook loves Box Tops! We are off to a good start collecting Box Tops this year. Keep sending them to school with your student using the collection sheet attached or in an envelope or Zip Lock baggie. This is an easy way for our community to raise funds for enhancements such as technology and library items. We will be collecting all year, so feel free to send in at your convenience. Be sure to ask other family members to collect them as well!!

FALL CONTEST: Every completed collection sheet returned to school in September or October with a student name on it will be entered into a prize raffle. The fall prize will be a $10 TCBY gift card and will be awarded to three students in November. The more sheets submitted, the more chances your child has to win. Be sure your child’s NAME is on the collection sheet. Only entries received on collection sheets are eligible for prizes.
For further questions or prize donations, please contact Amy Sullivan at

All reflections projects are due on Friday October 20 (Drop off at office).
As a reminder, this year's theme is "Within Reach" and categories are:
