Goal Setting & Compliance Course
WATCH D.O.G.S. Pizza Night
Dads will begin volunteering on Monday, October 30. The sign up is through a sign-up genius link that will be made available through School Messenger on Wednesday, October 25. Our WATCH dogs are given a schedule for the day when they arrive, and they might spend a portion of their day in your classroom. Think of ways that they can be of support to you in the classroom. Maybe there is a student that needs someone to read with them or a student that needs to review their facts. These are easy examples of things they can do. Thank you for making them feel welcome in your classroom. For those of you new to this, please see any administrator if you have questions.
There is an information video below that is also shared at our training.

Upcoming School Events
October 24 is WATCH D.O.G.S. Pizza Night: Paras and teachers that are interested in working this fun event (6:15 to 8:15), please sign up with Sally.
Spring Creek Spirit Night is Wednesday, October 25. A sign up will be sent soon. With a limited number of spots, we will designate how many teachers can sign up from each grade level. It does not mean that only those teachers may attend, but it is not possible for an entire grade level to serve rolls. Priority will be given to those that have not signed up before. Servers work a 30-minute shift and are given an apron and free dinner. They will also be given a gift certificate when the staff returns to distribute prizes to the students. Please consider friendly competitions among your classes. This fundraiser goes directly to the school.
October 31 is trick-or-treating for the staff. The A-team will be preparing some tasty treats that you'll "collect" as you travel through our offices that day.
