The Spring Creek Great Kindness Challenge Update

Our Great Kindness Challenge began on Monday and our staff and students are having a blast! Throughout the week, our students have discussed the meaning and importance of kindness while also creating projects that spread kind messages. Our classrooms and breezeways are filled with positivity and messages of kindness. Ask your student about how they've been involved in our kindness challenge this week!

Lost and Found: Friday 4/1

Tomorrow, we'll place all of the lost and found items on tables outside of the music room outdoors near the cafeteria entrance. This week we've reminded students to check the lost and found and are also encouraging parents to take a look. Any items left will be donated.
