We are in desperate need of noon duties and crossing guards at Spalding! No, desperate doesn't even cover it!!! Please, please, please consider this if you would be able to give 30-60 minutes a day to us...and earn a little spending cash while doing it? Inquire at the office if you are interested! :)
Red Ribbon Week and Halloween
Your child is bringing home a paper detailing Red Ribbon Week dress up days and our Halloween procedures and party info. Please check for it. There is a lot of important information on there. If your child has lost the paper, I am attaching a copy to the Class Documents tab on this website.
Does your child have headphones/earbuds at school???
We are using several computer programs that require the use of headphones or earbuds. Please send some in for your child, if you haven't already done so. Also, if you want to send in an extra pair of headphones for a child who might not have any, that would be wonderful. Unfortunately, I can't take "extra" earbuds, since these cannot be shared. Thank you!
The new boxtop competition has started. Please save your boxtops and send them in to school with your kiddo. If you can, separate the boxtops into baggies of 25, with your child's name AND my name on the baggie. For every 25 boxtops submitted, the student will receive a ticket for a raffle of a $25 movie gift card. The class with the most boxtops will win a popcorn party, too. Send in whatever you have! Every little one helps! Thank you!
At Spalding, we work to follow the district's guidelines for healthy eating. We celebrate all birthdays for the month on the last Friday of the month. If your child has a birthday that month, feel free to send in treats on that day. We usually celebrate at 1:35, but there are some months that scheduling is different and our celebration is at a different time of the day. If possible, send in treats with your child at the start of the day. Then we have them here whenever we have the time for the celebration. Also, we are only allowed to have one "sweet treat" for each party. The other items must be healthy or non-food items (pencils, goodie bags, etc.) If you are planning on sending the sweet treat with your child for his/her celebration, please email me to let me know. That way, I can let you know if the sweet treat has already been spoken for. We have 32 students in our class.
I have a Wish List page on this site. If you are willing and/or able to contribute any of these items, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
