Spring Garden Elementary PTA

Week of October 12th

We hope that you have had a great extended weekend and are ready to get back to the amazing things going on around Spring Garden.

PTA Membership cards will be going home this week. If you don't receive yours by Friday, please contact Crystal Sadler @

This year the PTA has decided to try something new and fun for our fundraiser. We are going to have the 1st Annual Cougar Prowl Fun Run on November 5th & 6th during your child’s P.E. class. We will kick off this exciting event on October 19. The PTA is finalizing the details and the information will be sent home next week.

Did you know that saving your box tops is an easy way for you to help Spring Garden Elementary earn money for educational needs? Each top is worth 10 cents which may not seem like much but it adds up very quickly. Last year we were able to raise over $900 by you taking a few minutes of your time.

It’s easy to participate. Just look for the pink “box tops for education” logo on products, clip them and send them to school. Be sure not to cut off the expiration date near the logo.

We need your help! The next submission date is around the corner. Please look at the boxes that you have around your home, clip the labels, and have your student bring the labels to school. If your child brings 25 labels to the office and shows the office staff, the student will receive a box top spirit stick to add to their collection. Deadline for the Fall submission is October 21st.

But don't stop after that date. Your student can bring box tops to the treasure chest in the office at anytime.

There is a fun collection sheet attached if your child would like to use it to collect and bring to the school.

Last week a family with a child at Spring Garden lost their house, vehicles and pets in a fire. If you would like to make a cash or gift card donation, please have your student take that donation to the school office.
