Halloween Festivities and More
Students celebrated Halloween with a parade and classroom party. Activities were also available to those students who don't celebrate Halloween. Watch the Halloween Parade on our YouTube channel and visit the school's Google Doc folder for pictures.
Please consider donating your unopened candy to Sprague. The school is donating the bags to a homeless shelter.

Book Fair Coming
The PTO is looking forward to hosting our annual book fair for students and families as we know
that empowering children to choose their own books in turn makes them more likely to read.
Students will create their book fair “wish lists” in school during library time. Be on the lookout as their wish lists will be sent home.
Save The Date! - We will have open hours for families to visit the book fairs
- Half Day Library: 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Monday, Nov. 14
- Sprague Library: 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 16
We need MANY volunteers to make this event a success! Please volunteer to sign up on the Membership Toolkit website. Anyone who volunteers four hours of their time to the book fair, will receive a 20% discount on all purchases.
