Makerspace

Makerspace Update:
Our school Makerspace has been in full swing for a few months! Watching students ‘make” has been the highlight of Ms. Terry and my year so far. We have seen firsthand how Makerspaces promote critical thinking skills and encourage students to use design thinking to solve real-world problems.
Thank you to everyone who has helped stock our school Makerspace with plastic lids, bottles, containers, cereal boxes, fabric, yarn, string and so much more! Our Makers have benefited and enjoyed their making each week.
We would like to ask for your continued support by sending in any of the following materials that we could use in our school-wide maker projects. These are our most popular consumables and therefore run out quickly: white model magic, popsicle sticks, pipe cleaners, all types of tape, Qtips, paper plates and foam pieces.
If you are willing to donate any of the following items, please drop them off to room 115 or the school office. If you have any further questions or think you have something not listed that might be useful to our Makerspace, please email me at springj@bsd405.org
Thank you in advance for helping us collect these items and supporting our creative explorations!
Sincerely,
Ms. Spring & Ms. Terry

we need volunteers for Popcorn Friday!
 
This is one of many reasons that makes Friday happy for our students!  For this program to continue to run, we need your help!  We need volunteers to help pop and bag popcorn in the morning and to sell during recess in the afternoon.  This is a great and easy way for family members to get involved and EVERYONE will love!

We need Chairperson for programs and events at Spiritridge!

Dear Spiritridge Community,

Spiritridge PTSA provides support, both financial and through event planning, for many of the fabulous program at school.  Some of our events are in jeopardy because the chairpersons have children who are moving on to middle school soon or are moving out of district, for example.  PTSA is seeking new chairpersons to help continue the tradition of these fine events.  Previous experience is not needed; we can train and support you.  Questions, please email programs@spiritridge.org   Have an idea for a new event, please let us know!

Family Science Fair  - The annual community Science Fair is a fun event where all of the students at Spiritridge can participate with science projects and demonstrations. This year we might also incorporate STEM into the fair. We need co-chair.  Usually mid to late April

Carnival  - year-end community event with games, food and prizes.  This is a great project for a team of 2-3 parents - find a friend! Usually first week of June

Game Night & Movie Night - Usually a couple times a year in the evening, an opportunity for families to meet and hang out. Help with concession sales, set up, clean up.

Opportunities to serve on the PTSA Board of Directors are also available.  Consider a Co- position and share the responsibilities with others.  Some of these can be done from your computer or at home!
