PTA Volunteer Open Committee Chair Positions – 2018-19 School Year
The PTA needs YOUR help! In order for us to continue providing lots of fun and educational opportunities for your children as well as family events, we MUST have parent volunteers willing to chair each of our planning committees. This year, we still have several committee chair positions open--please email Allison Fosdick, out-going PTA president, at springbrookpresidentpta@gmail.com, to learn more about these opportunities or to sign on as a committee chair!

See The Able Not The Label!
To bring awareness and acceptance to autism and other disabilities, as a school we would like to celebrate our differences for the months of April and May.
What is See The Able Not The Label?
This campaign is about promoting inclusion and acceptance in the classroom and throughout the community. Acceptance is to challenge ignorance and fear about disabilities. It is to spread the word and knowledge about disabilities. We are lucky at Spring Brook to include students with a variety of needs in our classrooms.

Make a pledge!
We would like to give everyone in our school the opportunity to make a ‘pledge’ towards See The Able Not The Label. If you would like to make the pledge, cut out, decorate and write your name on the ribbon that the students received at school and donate $1. The ribbons will be posted on our lunchroom wall and all donations will be divided evenly to Easter Seals, Western DuPage Special Recreation Association and Gigi’s Playhouse.
