Top class in each grade: Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd & 3rd: Ice cream sundae party; 4th & 5th: Kickball game against admin (teachers welcome to join us)
If we reach school goal of $25,000: Lip sync contest including admin and teachers (2 to 3 performances and kids will get to vote on winner)
This is one of our primary fundraisers (Rocket Fest is the other), so please help to encourage your students to participate. Every bit helps. We should be able to meet this goal, especially with having more students this year. We did keep this number conservative given the hardship of Harvey. Remind students that this is a great fundraiser because it is super easy for family and friends to support them with online pledging.
Thanks for all that you have done to make this a success already! Keep tweeting those classroom rewards!!

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.
