THIS WEEK’S NEWS

Calling all 5th grade parents! The exhibition is an exciting opportunity that all of our 5th grade students participate in to show their independence in research, organization and problem solving. Our PYP Coordinator, Mrs. Vance will be holding a parent information session this Thursday, February 21st from 5:30-6:00 in the library to share more about the process, what your role will be during this time, and answer any other questions you may have. We hope to see you there!

Volunteers Needed for Kinder Round-Up
Kindergarten Round-Up needs your help! On Wednesday, March 13, Spicewood hosts Kindergarten Round-Up, the registration day for incoming kindergartners. The administration depends on the PTA to help this event run smoothly. It’s a pretty easy and fun day, and it’s a great way to meet some of the incoming parents and kids. You’ll be greeting families, moving kids and parents through the stations, and making photocopies. The office staff are on hand the entire time to answer questions, and kindergarten teachers give tours. You can sign up for a volunteer shift HERE or please contact Donna Hobbs, Kindergarten Round-Up coordinator, with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Morning with Mom
Spicewood Elementary’s first Morning with Mom will be March 29th from 7:00-7:30am. This event is to celebrate mom’s, grandmothers and any lady that has been a special part of your child’s life. More information will be sent home as we get closer to March 29th.
Spicewood’s Spring Carnival
Mark your calendars! Carnival will be held on Friday, April 12th from 4-8pm and we will have food trucks, inflatables, a rock wall, petting zoo, carnival games, cake walk, and face painting!
