ABC Countdown to Last Day of School

It is hard to believe that we are nearing the final days of the school year! Today, April 28, we will begin to count down to the last day of school, which is June 4 (June 3 for Early Childhood).


As part of our countdown celebration Sprague is handing out complimentary Wildcat T-shirts to all the children. (It’s a surprise.)


Remote Families: Please stop by the school office lobby sometime this week (April 26-30) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to pick up your child's T-shirt. They are sorted by grade level.


In-person learners will receive their T-Shirts on the first day of ABC Countdown, Wednesday, April 28.


Please check the ABC Countdown schedule to see what we will be doing to make the last few weeks even more fun and exciting for students. The school invites families to countdown from Z to A engaging in activities corresponding with a given day. For instance, May 3, is Wildcat Day and students are encouraged to wear their Sprague T-shirt. Please keep in mind this is completely optional!


“Sprague purchased the T-shirts for the students because they have shown such tremendous resiliency, adaptability, and flexibility this year as we embarked on a whole new way to learn, said Principal Ann Hofmeier.


If you want to participate, please share pictures of your children engaged in the ABC Countdown activities to mvanduch@d103.org or text 847-791-3749.
