Spring Creek Communicator, November 24, 2023
Hello Spring Creek families!
What an exciting week with some skiing starting, blue sky days, and lots of fun at the book fair! Teachers have been taking classes out on nature walks and very interesting field trips, including art gallery tours and more.
Please make sure you scroll through the app to see information on the Holiday Art Gala on December 14th! As well, let the school know if you can help volunteer at the Santa’s workshop, and preparations for it leading up to December 11-12. Ms. Smith has been busy getting us organized for that, along with student leaders and parent helpers who have offered to help. We appreciate all the help we can get for this special event.
It’s BRATZ BIZ weekend! November 26-27 at the Westin. See below for details!
December 6 is an early dismissal day, 11:45, for teacher collaboration.
Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up to help run Santa's Workshop! Please note the sign-up is mainly for the time slot as the jobs may change with # of volunteers but we will do our best to accommodate your wish. Please mention in the comments if you are available for only a portion of the time. And of course, feel free to sign up for more than one spot! If your preferred spot is full please email [email protected]
