Ahoy Mates! Our "Bookaneer" Pirate Book Fair is coming…
Check with your child's teacher if your child's book fair purchase time is Nov. 17 or Nov. 18. We encourage you to set up eWallet for your child.

The evening time is for parents/family shopping, but students cannot be unattended. If childcare is an issue during a conference, we'll ask the student to wait outside the classroom. The child can return to the book fair with their parent(s) after the conference.

One Can! Two Cans! Who Can? YOU CAN!!! Food Drive
The Spring Brook PTA is organizing a food drive to support our community’s families-in-need through the Aurora Food Pantry. The drive will run from Monday, November 15th through Tuesday, November 30. Non-perishable food items can be sent with students and placed in the collection boxes located inside the front entrance of the school. Please make sure your student places their food items in the correct box for their grade. Parents can also drop off food items on Thursday, November 18th during the Book Fair and Parent Teacher Conferences. The grade that brings in the most food items/baby products will win a Popcorn and Pajamas Party!! Please see attachment for Aurora Food Pantry’s wish list.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email Linda Hammond at Lmadden12@netscape.net.
