What We Learned
We're going to try to connect your child with more books and with hearing books read to them. Thanks for your input. It gives us a great starting point!
The Question of the Week
Spencer Family Book Fair
Students will not be allowed to shop on their own. If you cannot attend our Lunch with a Loved One events and you would like for your student to shop during lunch recess please send their money in an envelope with a note stating that you would like Mrs. Adams to be their adult for shopping.
Volunteers are needed for setup and breakdown PLUS during our Book Fairs. Please sign-up here.
If you have questions email Mrs. Adams firstname.lastname@example.org

Girls on the Run
We desperately need volunteer coaches for Girls on the Run. This is a 10 week program from March-May for 3rd and 4th grade girls. You don't have to be a runner to coach! Dads and high school students are also welcome to coach! Registration opens for girls on 1/21. There is financial aid available for all students.
Visit https://www.girlsontherunsemi.org/Home/fbclid/IwAR3Vq3BjtudTSUStUvI4-JXJpjq991m8hrYEo2huvHvpQKebAqhHAASIj7A for more information. Please contact Heather ASAP if you are interested in coaching our Spencer girls: 313-414-1097 or Heffernanh@live.com
The program is in jeopardy. It will not run without coaches. Please volunteer if you can.
