Peace, Love and Pancakes Video 2018

On February 9th, 2018, the students and extended Springwater community enjoyed a lovely pancake brunch served by the Parent Council members, as well as a day of hard work in the field planting trees with the crew from METRO. The following video was created by parent and board member Justin Bearden.

Peace, Love & Pancakes + Metro Planting Day is February 9th!

Check it out and sign up to volunteer, this is one of the best days of the year!

Springwater Needs YOU! Please volunteer!

There’s no better contribution to the lives of our kids than partnering with our teachers and staff at Springwater School.  Whether you volunteer for an hour or make a commitment over many months, your volunteer time is appreciated.  We need your help at school.

Join our 2020 Attendance Resolution!

Attending school has a huge impact on student success. This year we want to make sure every student misses no more than 9 days of school, or 1 day a month. We need your help.  Please let us know how we can best support you and your student so that they can show up for school on time every day.

Some Attendance Tips to Promote Student Learning:

  • Make sure your students keep a regular bedtime and establish a morning routine so they are rested and alert when they get to school.
  • Turn off all electronics including TVs, phones, and tablets at bedtime.
  • Make sure clothes and pack backpacks are ready the night before.
  • Check with our school nurse or office staff if you are not sure about when to keep your child at home due to illness.
  • Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor’s appointments when school is in session.
  • Talk to teachers and counselors for advice if your student feels anxious about going to school.
  • Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, neighbor, or another parent to take your student to school.

Scrip & Fundraising

Our next Scrip order goes in on Friday with a pick up the following Thursday.

Please take a look at the attached potential profit flyer.  Springwater needs to fundraise to offer our extraordinary set of programs.   We have listened to parents who want to contribute but do not have the means to do so.  Scrip is the perfect way for everyone to get financially involved.  Start small and think about the weekly groceries and gas.

If you shop at New Seasons or Fred Meyer and average $200 a week that translates to a monthly donation of $16 … across the year that comes to about $200.

Get your gas at Fred Meyers?  Get scrip cards and register your rewards card at https://www.fredmeyer.com/topic/community-rewards-4 and we get double contributions.

For a limited time:  For every $50 Columbia Card purchased, you will receive a pass to the Columbia Employee Store for you and 4 others.  It is also good for online purchases at employee prices. Don’t miss out on this awesome deal.

Disaster Comfort Kits

We are getting even more prepared for the “waiting time” students would experience in the aftermath of a natural disaster.  We need your participation.  We are asking that each student have a comfort kit prepared by parents or caregivers.  Please click here for the details.  Our goal is for all students to have a comfort kit by November 1, which will be stored at school and returned at the end of the year.

Music Residency & Concert Info

The role that music will play in students’ lives depends in large measure on the level of exposure they achieve in creating, performing, and listening to music.

This Monday, Oct 9 through Nov 16 we welcome renowned, local blues musician Ellen Whyte to Springwater for a music residency. Ellen will be providing instruction in creating, performing, listening to, and analyzing music. Each class will learn about the history of jazz and blues, compose an original song, and perform the song in our 1st All School Concert on November 16 at 6:00 pm at Clackamas Community College, Gregory Forum. This is an evening you will not want to miss.
