PTA Membership

We are in the last week of our 2021-22 Spring Brook PTA Membership Drive! The drive ends Friday, September 24th. Thanks so much to everyone who has already joined the PTA this school year. Currently, 34% of our 455 families and 65% of the school’s 63 staff members have joined. That means overall, 38% of our school community is part of the PTA thus far. We still have a ways to go before we hit our 75% goal. Think we can make it?? WE DO!! If you have not yet signed up, please consider doing so this week. Thank you, your support is greatly appreciated.



Membership cost $15.00 and donations are appreciated. You can join at https://springbrook.memberhub.store.

Coat Drive

Winter Coat & Boot Drive: During the month of September, we ask you to Share the Warmth with your friends and neighbors. We are collecting new or gently used, clean coats of all sizes (infant through adult plus size), in addition to other winter accessories (boots, hats, coats, scarves, snow pants, etc.). The winter items will be distributed to families in need within our district in early October. Please make sure zippers are in good working condition.



Spring Brook will be collecting new or gently worn, clean winter items from Wednesday, September 22 - Friday, October 1st. Please drop off your items in the collection boxes labeled “Coat Drive” inside the front entrance of the school.



If you have any questions, please contact ippcpta@gmail.com or Linda Hammond at Lmadden12@netscape.net

-Please do not send your student to school when he/she is sick. If you are unsure, please consider the COVID self-certification questions. If you answer YES to any question on the certification, please do not send the student to school.

-If your student is sick, please do not send any siblings (living in the same household) to school (in any grade level). Contact the health office of the school your symptomatic student attends and ask for further instructions.
