Wednesday, October 28 Stuffed Animal Wednesday
We all feel better with a buddy or teammate close by. While we can’t be at school working with our friends and classmates close by, we can invite a stuffed animal to join classes today! Be ready to share your stuffed animal in Morning Meeting so all your friends can meet them!
Thursday, October 29 Spooky Thursday
You may dress in attire that you feel is spooky – within reason. No masks, blood, or weapons will be permitted (fake or real). Remember spooky isn’t the same as scary, it may be as simple as something that gives you a creepy crawly feeling, like bugs, broccoli, or that sneaky feeling when a rain drop falls down the back of your shirt! Be creative with your outfit today.
Friday, October 30 Costume Friday
Wear your favorite creative costume for school today! Be ready to take a picture on your computer if you would like to share your costume OR you may share your picture on Twitter with the help or permission of your family. Be sure to use the hashtag #SpringHillFallFest and to tag our school accounts @LibrarySpring and @SpringHillFCPS so we can share your pictures with our community.3rd Grade Recorder Purchasing & Pickup Information
The Fairfax County Program of Studies recommends introducing the soprano recorder at the third-grade level and continuing its use in the General Music program through the sixth-grade level. The recorder is a genuine musical instrument capable of producing good tone quality. Because it is relatively easy to play, each child has the opportunity to experience success.
Please CLICK HERE for more information about purchasing your child's recorder and our curbside recorder pickup on November 2nd.
