Dear Sprague Community,

I hope you all enjoyed the April vacation! With the Boston Bruins and the Boston Celtics all in playoff mode, we invite students to have a Boston Sports Spirit Day on Friday, April 26thWear gear from your favorite team or wear Sprague gear if you’d like.

Wear Green Day

The Sprague Green Team would also like to celebrate Earth Day/Earth Week/Earth Month by reminding you about sustainable practices. We are proud of the recycling and food recovery programs we run in our cafeteria. Our Green Team leads the way! We encourage you to consider a waste free lunch that day as well. This means that home lunches are packed in reusable containers. I see that many students already do this regularly!

Please see the flyer below inviting all to show their Green by wearing Green on Thursday, April 24th!

Crayon Collection

Sprague’s 2nd grade Girl Scout Troop #82518 is collecting used crayons to be donated and recycled into new crayons by The Crayon Initiative. The Crayon Initiative is a nonprofit organization that seeks to keep crayons out of the landfill and bring the joy of art to kids during their stay in hospitals by collecting used and broken crayons from restaurants, schools, etc. and turning them into new packs of crayons for children in hospitals around the country. A donation box is in the main lobby area at Sprague until May 3rd. Please consider donating any broken or old crayons from home. For more information about The Crayon Initiative, watch this video
