THIS WEEK’S NEWS
Morning with Mom
Thank you for spending your morning with us!
The Spicewood Giving Tree
From March 27th through April 5th, the PTA will have the Spicewood Giving Tree set up in the library so that parents can take a “leaf” off of the tree and purchase something that our teachers want/need. Each grade level or special area will have its own color of leaves to help parents quickly select which group(s) they wish to help.
After purchasing your item, please deliver it to the front office by Friday, April 12th. If you order it online, you can have it sent directly to Spicewood (11601 Olson Drive, 78750). Thank you!
Panther Pride Spirit Store is Open!
Our first online school store is open until April 15th. Don’t miss out on the one of a kind items available to show your Panther Pride! Hats, duffel bag, Field Day shirt, water bottles, yard sign and so much more. This store is a fundraiser for 4th grade to go to Outdoor School, so let’s support our Panthers!
The hoodie design entries were voted on last week by the students. The winner will be announced this week. Thank you Panthers for your hard work! Don’t forget to order a hoodie!
Save the date for Spirit Night on April 23rd. This will be a 4th Grade Fundraisers for Outdoor School next year. Our last Spirit Night will be May 14th at Phil’s Icehouse.

The next Birthday celebrations will be on April 3, and May 15. Thank you for your help as we celebrate our wonderful teachers!
