Dear Sprague Community,

The week of the Cookie Walk is here. I can almost smell the sugar even before it all arrives! We will be accepting cookie donations on Wednesday and Thursday. The Cookie Walk takes place from 3:05-5:00 PM on Thursday, December 13th. Please be sure to park in a marked space if you come. Dismissal can be hectic on this particular day. The Cookie Walk features cookies, a raffle, and a magic show.

The Day of Play will take place next Wednesday on December 19th. Originally, the idea came from a video that went viral a few years ago about a boy named Caine, who built an arcade out of boxes and recycled material at his father’s auto shop. All he wanted for his birthday was for people to come play with the arcade games he created. The message went out and video of the day people came to play at his father’s auto shop went viral and created a movement to support creativity and providing a time for children to just have fun creating. At Sprague, we often ask kids to think and plan for what they want to build. They often build something that does a job, something you could wear, or something to play with. This year, some classes are adding challenges to create something specific as well. We are looking for donations of any and all of the following items, including large boxes and paper tubes:

  • Paper tubes, masking tape
  • Small cardboard boxes, foil, colorful paper, clean yogurt cups
  • Masking tape, boxes
  • Aluminum foil, plastic wrap, pennies
  • Newspapers, tape
  • Paper cups, duct tape, plastic straws, wooden skewers, ping pong balls
  • Large cardboard boxes
  • Anything else you think we could use except for styrofoam

Please see the offerings for Winter After School Enrichment.
