ANOTHER REASON TO SMILE!

The Spring Creek PTO wants to remind families about a super simple way to raise funds for our school!  Amazon.com has a fundraising site called AmazonSmile which donates a small percentage of every purchase to your chosen organization.  Every time you buy an eligible item through AmazonSmile, the Spring Creek PTO receives a small percentage of the sale.  AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know.  Same products, same prices, same service!!

The link AmazonSmile for Spring Creek Elementary PTO will take you directly to smile.amazon.com in support of our organization. Or, you can go to smile.amazon.com, designate Spring Creek Elementary School PTO as your charitable organization, and you are ready to shop.

Only purchases made through the AmazonSmile site result in a donation so you can bookmark the AmazonSmile home page to make it easier to return and shop. If you have an Amazon account, everything is the same on the AmazonSmile site: your cart, wish lists, registries, and settings. Tell your friends and relatives about it too! Anyone can choose to support Spring Creek Elementary through AmazonSmile.

Special Guest at Spring Creek

Who can be an author? Anyone can!

     On the morning of Friday, September 22, Eugene Gagliano, a Wyoming author, visited  Spring Creek! Mr. Eugene Gagliano, a former elementary teacher and writer from Buffalo, read to Spring Creek students to help ignite our students’ interest in writing.   His focus is on how students can show their ideas rather tell them when writing. 

     At the end of each presentation, Mr. Gagliano did some books signings.  If you would like to purchase one of his works, his books are available on Amazon, the University Book Store, or direct from his publisher Sleeping Bear Press. Some of his most popular titles include: C is for Cowboy, Four Wheels West, Wyoming Number Book, V is for Venus Flytrap, My Teachers Dances on the Desk, and Little Wyoming.

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.
