Principal's Weekly Message - May 28, 2018
Hello Spring Brook Parents,
Summer Reading and Math Fact Practice
You will receive a letter from your classroom teacher this week providing information about summer practice with math facts and reading. It is very beneficial for students to read every day and practice their math facts over the summer.
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 email@example.com, to learn more about these opportunities or to sign on as a committee chair!
Open committee chair positions for the 2018-2019 school year:
--Adult Social--at least 2 positions (plans, organizes, and executes our biggest fundraiser of the year. Last year the event was at Nevins Brewing Company and raised over $12,000. A large committee of volunteers helps with the planning, donation solicitation, and carrying out the actual event. Very important that we will fill these roles).
--Hospitality--2 positions (plans and organizes events and treat for teachers and staff throughout the year)
--Spring Fling Co-Chair (plans, organizes, and executes Spring Fling in March. We already have one chairperson who helped put on our fabulous Spring Fling this past year, but need a co-chair).
--Bingo For Books--2 positions (collects books and prizes and organizes and executes the Bingo for Books night held in February)
--Art Awareness Co-Chair--(works with the current co-chair to organize and oversee the art awareness volunteers and program)
--Ice Cream Social (organize and oversee ice cream social at the very beginning of the school year)
--Membership (send out, collect, and enter membership forms and information into database. Most of the work for this position is done at home).
--Charleston Wrap Fundraiser (organize, publicize, and arrange for delivery and order pick up for the Charleston Wrap fundraiser in the fall)
--PDAC Representative (District diversity advisory council rep--attends a few council meetings per year on behalf of our PTA and then reports back to our school's PTA)
--Photography Co-Chair (works with current co-chair to take kindergarten photos at the beginning of the year and other classroom photos throughout the year)
--Community Service (plans and organizes our school participation in the district coat drive in the fall and any other community food drives, etc)
--Sign Specialist (in charge of changing the announcements on the marquis sign in front of the school as needed throughout the year)
--Health and Safety Red Ribbon Week co-chair (helps plan our school's Red Ribbon Week events)
You must be a member of the PTA in order to chair a committee. Please keep in mind that even if you aren't able to be a committee chair at this time, there are still plenty of ways to get involved, and volunteers are needed for every event. Separate emails will go out closer to each event asking for volunteer sign ups.
Thank you in advance--we couldn't do it without YOU!
LMC Volunteers – 2018-19 School Year
Hello Spring Brook Families!
My name is Luciana Rodriguez and I will be Spring Brook's Library Media Center (LMC) Volunteer Coordinator this upcoming school year. We are looking for additional LMC volunteers.
The volunteer schedule has three time slots per day: 9 -11 a.m., 11 - 1 p.m., and 1 - 3:30 p.m. Volunteers have an assigned day and time slot every week or every other week, with two volunteers per shift. During shifts, volunteers check-in books, interact with classes 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. It is a fun way to become involved at Spring Brook and meet teachers, students, and Spring Brook families!
If you would like to join our LMC team and be added to the schedule for the upcoming school year, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
1st, 2nd, and 3rd CHOICE OF DAY AND TIME SLOT
PARTNER PREFERNCE (If you have one)
FREQUENCY OF SHIFT (every week or every other week)
Thank you all so much for your interest in our program. Spring Brook kids love coming to the LMC, and that is only possible with the help we receive from all of our wonderful volunteers.
Have a wonderful summer!
