Thanksgiving Break (11/20-11/24)

As the autumn leaves blanket the ground in vibrant hues, the joyous anticipation of Thanksgiving break fills the hearts of children across Sulphur Springs.  With school doors swinging open and freedom beckoning, kids burst out with unbridled enthusiasm, ready to embark on a delightful week of family gatherings, laughter, and gratitude.  Whether they're eagerly preparing to help in the kitchen, crafting handmade decorations, or simply relishing the opportunity to spend quality time with loved ones, Thanksgiving break signifies a moment of respite and connection, offering children the chance to savor the comforting embrace of home and the promise of delicious feasts to come. 
We hope that you have a wonderful week off spending time together.

Recycling Drop-Offs – Thank You to Our New Chairperson Bailey Johnson!

Mother Earth has missed YOU!  But don’t fear – the SSPTA Recycling Program is back!

With great thanks to our new chairperson, Bailey Johnson, and to our many regular volunteers who come together to make this happen, Recycling returns to the Sulphur Springs campus on Friday, November 17.  We will have volunteers at all three valet lines (up front, at the Kindergarten Gate, and in the bus loop) collecting those CRV bottles and cans that you’ve been collecting.

Remember, CRV bottles can be glass or plastic, clear or colored, and they say CA CRV 5c.  CRV cans are aluminum beverage cans of varying sizes; they also say CA CRV 5c.  Not all bottles and cans are recyclable.  (For example, milk containers and large juice containers are not CRV.  Please check the label to be sure.)

We take your CRV bottles and cans to the local redemption center and exchange them for money, which goes towards enrichment activities and fun events during the school day.
If you would like to volunteer for Recycling, you can just show up at 8:15am on our Recycling Drop-Off Days at the front gate, and we’ll have someone there that can show you what we do (gathering the recyclables and sorting them for the recycling center).   We also welcome students who want to hold up signs.  (If you would like to help drive recyclables to the redemption center, please contact us at President@sspta.org, and we’ll get you in touch with Bailey to coordinate.)
Thank you for all you do for our students and our planet!

12/4-12/8 – Holiday Shop

We are seeking a few volunteers who would like to pre-wrap presents (at home or at school; we can provide the wrapping paper), and we are also looking for quite a few volunteers to “staff” the store (helping students choose appropriate gifts for the loved ones on their lists, restocking inventory, and running the cash register). We may also need help with shopping, set-up, and clean-up. – Chair, Jeanette James (mrsjdjames@yahoo.com)

Restaurant Night – CANCELED (I know; we’ll miss you too!)
