Spring Book Swap

Do you have gently used children’s books laying around your home that your student is no longer interested in reading?

If you said yes, then please consider donating them to Spring Creek for our Spring Book Swap.

Spring Creek will be hosting a school wide book swap where all students can come to the library and take home a “new” book for summer the week of May 15th-19th.

  • What we need: We are looking for gently used books for our K-5 students. We need books for all levels of readers – picture books, chapter books, non-fiction, etc.
  • When should you bring them to school? The library will be accepting books April 10th-May 5th.
  • Where should you bring them? You can send them to school with your student, or drop them off at the library directly. There will be a drop box for books outside the library door.
  • Who should you contact if you have any questions? Please contact Amanda Nunn at anunn@acsd1.org.

ONE WORLD, ONE WELL

KidsHandOnGlobeThe third and fourth grade GATE classes at Spring Creek have been studying water.  As part of this unit, we learned how to conserve and care for our water in Laramie, and also learned about water crises around the world, especially in India. Read more about our project at: http://oneworldonewell.weebly.com/

We have made bookmarks to raise money to help people in India. People can help by purchasing one (or several!) of our conservation bookmarks. (If you would like to order a set of bookmarks, please email ahayden@acsd1.org or hommen@acsd1.org.)  All proceeds will go to the Nature’s Water Filter organization to be used for water filtration systems. The money we raise will benefit the people in India and it will help them deal with their water crisis.  You can also help by donating money directly to the organization.

TEXT MESSAGING SERVICE

Parents and Guardians

You can take advantage of our Text Messaging Serviceschoolmessenger-opt-in111

Our school utilizes the SchoolMessenger system to deliver text messages, straight to your mobile phone with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts and more.

You can participate in this free service* just by sending a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number, 68453.

You can also opt out of these messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.

SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy PledgeTM, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone.

Information on SMS text messaging and Short Codes:
S
MS stands for Short Message Service and is commonly referred to as a “text message”. Most cell phones support this type  of text messaging. Our notification provider, SchoolMessenger, uses a true SMS protocol developed by the telecommunications industry specifically for mass text messaging, referred to as “short code” texting.  This method is fast, secure and highly reliable because it is strictly regulated by the wireless carriers and only allows access to approved providers. If you’ve ever sent a text vote for a TV show to a number like 46999, you have used short code texting.

Reading Connections

Looking for a way to enhance your child’s home reading experience?  Title 1 Reading is offering “Reading Connections” that provide fun activities and stories that you may use at home to support your children’s reading skills.

Attendance Matters!

Attendance MattersCommon sense tells us that kids who miss school miss opportunities to learn. Some absences are just unavoidable. But, how much is too much? New research tells us that missing an average of just two days a month makes a child much more likely to fail a subject or to not graduate from high school. This research also points out that parents often underestimate the effects of missing school. It’s in everyone’s interest that students are at school the vast majority of the time. Thank you for making attendance a priority at Spring Creek Elementary School.
