Weekly Message - October 4, 2021
Hello Spring Brook Parents -
Fall temperatures make us think of all of our favorites…Pumpkin Spice Lattes, apple picking with the family and, of course, Fall Spiritwear! Shop from our newest collection of apparel online at https://springbrook21.itemorder.com/shop/sale/.
Take advantage of reduced pricing on any items purchased now through October 18th. The special pricing is reflected in both the attached flyer and online store. Please note that any order placed during this timeframe will be delivered to school during the 1st week of November.
As a reminder, 100% of profits from the sales go to the PTA. So show your Husky pride and support our school this Fall!
PTA Fall Fundraiser
The PTA Fall Fundraiser through Charleston Wrap is under way! Catalogs and registration instructions should be sent home by today. If you aren't familiar, Charleston Wrap offers very unique and fun wrapping paper and quality kitchen and home items that can even be personalized. Money earned during this fundraiser allows the PTA to give back to Spring Brook for things like field trips, student and teacher resources, and art awareness. Thank you for your help and support in past years, and we hope to exceed last year's fall fundraiser sales with your support this year.
What you can do to help:
· Read the welcome letter and register your student(s) online using our school ID (11280). NEW: You can now register each of your students at the same time with the same email address and manage each child through one login. Students in the same family will have combined sales, but still earn prizes individually.
· Once you send out texts or emails, you will get the option to share your student's shopping link on Facebook and other social media. The majority of our sales came from internet orders in previous years. This is a great way for distant relatives, friends or even co-workers to show their support!
· Submit orders by 10/18 or soonerâ€” products will be delivered to home addresses and no product pick up at school
· There will be no paper orders this yearâ€” everything is completed online!
If you have any questions about the fundraiser, please contact Tiffany Malik (firstname.lastname@example.org). We look forward to working together to make this another successful fundraiser!
Thank you in advance for your support!
This is the final week of the 2021-22 Spring Brook PTA membership drive.
Anything Is Popsicle When We Come Together!
Thank you to all of our teachers, staff and families that have signed up so far. Our goal is to reach 75% of our school community, and we have a ways to go!
Spring Brook is a Cool Place to Learn - Because of You!
We know that our school is strong because of the support of our school community, so please consider joining us! The PTA provides opportunities for our 560 students and our teachers through volunteer support, giving teachers funds for classroom resources, and educational enrichment for our students. Projected student and educational enrichment expenditures together total over $15,000 for the 2021-22 school year. This includes our Scholastic and other classroom resources, Art Awareness program, Diversity events, Reflections and Science Fair. The PTA also funds staff appreciation events and provides our LMC with around $4,500 each year.
Blizzard Says, It's All For the Kids!
Everything we do is for our students! Spring Brook Elementary was recently rated the #1 Public Elementary School by Niche. We know why our families and staff are proud of our school and what it means to be a Husky! Our children directly benefit when our students, teachers, parents and families are directly engaged in our school community. If we come together for our kids, anything is possible! The PTA also hosts our school's special events like the Ice Cream Social, Adult Social, Tile Night, Bingo for Books, and Spring Fling. We are offering a popsicle party incentive to the grade level that has the highest percentage of families join the PTA as a celebration of this achievement. Your support is greatly appreciated!
Pawsitive You Want to Join - but How?
Annual membership cost is $15, and donations are also appreciated. You can join us at https://springbrook.memberhub.store. Paper forms are also available in the school office if you prefer to sign up that way! There is no wrong way to PTA! Keep an eye out for fun activities throughout the year. Watch for our newsletter, the Husky Heads Up! Let's go Huskies!
