Toys for Tots Drive

WOW! The Spencer community never fails to amaze me. Thank you so much for your toy donations last week. Five lucky students were able to throw pies at a few staff members on "live" closed circuit TV during our video announcements! (see picture below)

There are three more days left until the drive is over, and we would LOVE to dethrone Martha Reid Elementary as the reigning Toys for Tots donation champions. From Coach K...

“Hats off to Spencer Families”…if we can hit our goal by Tuesday by collecting at least 100 toys that will hopefully put us in the lead, Mrs. Rinearson will declare Wednesday, December 9th a school wide hat day!!! We can do this! Let’s get Mrs. Rinearson on that float in the parade and bring home the trophy to Spencer! Please encourage your students to help with this last big call for toys for a good cause!

School winners will be announced via email Wednesday or Thursday over announcements. The class that wins in each grade level will win a pajama day on Friday December 11th and a movie. More details to come later on this.
