Volunteers Needed

  • As Deb Buhler and Sneha Patel continue to build a great PTO team, the following parent volunteers are needed for:

  • Social Committee Members

  • Fifth Grade Parent Committee

  • If interested please email


Extra Masks

  • It would be most helpful and appreciated if students can come to school with extra masks, please

  • We have noticed that the paper masks are easily breaking

  • As a result, Chris Babicz is happy to supply extras, which quickly depletes the supply

  • As always, thank you!


Instrument Instruction for Grades 3-5 Students

  • The Performing Arts Department is opening up registration for students interested in learning a band or an orchestra instrument

  • The lessons can be done in-person or remotely

  • If you have questions about financial aid for these lessons, or any other issues, please don’t hesitate to contact Brittany Hitchcock, Sprague Music Teacher (guest teacher for Katie Dexter)
