Principal's Weekly Message - November 6, 2017
Hello Spring Brook Parents,
Operation Sweet Treats for Troops
With your help, we have collected eleven boxes of Halloween candy for our Operation Sweet Treats for Troops Drive. The drive benefits Operation Support Our Troops, who will send donated candy as part of care packages to troops stationed around the world. There is still time to donate! Please send any last unopened candy donations to school by tomorrow. Collection bins will be located outside of morning arrival entrances, as well as in the office. Thanks for your help in making this drive a huge success!

New collection sheets for our winter drive will be coming home this week. Send your Box Tops to school with your child on a collection sheet or in a Ziploc bag or envelope.

Two $25 Giordano’s gift cards will be awarded as prizes as well as 8 Oberweis ice cream cones. Prizes will be awarded in February. The more sheets submitted, the more chances your child has to win.

Attend Engage 204 on Nov. 14
You are invited to attend Engage 204, Indian Prairie School District's new community engagement program on November 14 from 7 to 9 pm at Still Middle School, 787 Meadowridge Drive, Aurora. This is the first of a series of Engage 204 sessions hosted by community leaders on behalf of the district. The November 14 meeting will feature a special State of the District presentation by Superintendent Karen Sullivan.
Engage 204 is a collaborative process between the community and District 204 to ensure a strong future for the district and its students. The Engage 204 sessions will explore different aspects of the district, including, enrollment, district finances, and other key issues involved in maintaining a successful educational experience for students. Key to the success of this process is the collaboration and discussion between participants. Attendees will have the unique opportunity to share ideas and discuss topics in small groups in order to provide feedback to the Board of Education.
All District 204 residents are invited to participate in Engage 204. RSVP is appreciated, but not required at http://ipsd.us/1F1FW. Learn more at http://www.engage204.org.
We go outside for recess if the temperature combined with the wind chill is five degrees or higher. Please remember to send your child to school with warm clothing so they can enjoy recess. Thanks!
