Students Love the New Bridges Math Program

Bridges in Mathematics is D103's new math curriculum for grades preschool through five. It offers a comprehensive curriculum. It provides a rigorous, coherent, engaging curriculum. Watch this brief video for an overview of the program.

Koala Bear Collection

Sprague invites parents to send students to school with spare change to help with its Koins for Koalas fundraiser taking place the week of Monday, Jan. 27. Children are encouraged to wear gray on Monday in support of adopting koalas.

Watch this video that Sprague students created about Koins for Koalas.

The school would like to "adopt" koalas from the WWF in Australia. By adopting koalas, the school means it will send money to the WWF organization to help protect and care for this nearly extinct species. WWF is one of Australia’s most trusted conservation organizations. Encourage your student to wear gray on Monday, the color of a koala. Looking for cute koala spirit wear? Support the Koala fundraiser by purchasing Koala spirit wear.

Spirit Wear for Sale

The second Spirit Wear sale of the school year is underway. There are lots of trendy shirts, hoodies and lounge pants on the spirit wear website.
