Dear Sprague Families,

A shout of gratitude and congratulations to Deb Buhler and Sneha Patel, PTO Co-Presidents, along with the many other parents that volunteered, participated, helped, and supported during the Fall Festival.  The crowd was large in number and full of school spirit!  The weather, the events, the food, and the cheerful spirits from the fifth-grade students were equally amazing.  It was clear everyone had a great time!

Please enjoy your well-deserved weekend!

Extra Masks

  • A respectful reminder, please….

  • Please send students to school with extra masks (i.e 5 in a ziplock bag in their backpack, even a few in their lunch boxes) 

  • The purpose is to replace a mask with a clean mask in case their mask becomes soiled, wet, or breaks

  • Chris Babicz is handing out > 25 student masks per day

  • Unfortunately, that is not sustainable

  • Thank you – your help is always appreciated!
