Springcreek Tree Farm LLC is selling plants this week at the school. 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Springwater School. The plants include 1 gallon lilacs for $10 each, 1 gallon blueberries for $8 each and 1 gallon raspberries for $8 each. Money can be turned into a marked “Plant Sale” envelope in the office.

We warmly wish Katy the best as she ventures into a new position next week and leaves, after 6 years of service, to the Springwater community. The students warmly honored her and showered her with goodbyes at Thursday morning meeting. Her knowledge of the behind the scenes operations to keep Springwater running smooth will be missed. We will be welcoming continued parent volunteers in the morning to keep the reception area and office responsive to parent and student needs, while we take some time to find a replacement for this critical position at Springwater.
Springwater is excited to welcome filmmaker: Charlie Smith of Awen Productions, to our school on April 11,12 and 15th. Charlie has extensive background working with schools and youth organizations all over the world through exchange and leadership programs documenting youth education through engaging documentaries and teaching filmmaking to youth. Charlie will be on campus to capture with film, the Springwater Community and interview community members. He will be asking the question: “Springwater is a school of choice, why do you choose Springwater?” We are excited to capture on film all of the exciting and truly wonderful aspects of a Springwater education to share with the greater community.

Volunteers Needed – Message from Darcey Bone
I really need additional people to help volunteer at the auction. Several spots are available. If you are planning to attend, but want to help out with one of these jobs, that would be wonderful. Just let me know. If you aren’t signed up to attend, but want to help—we really need you!!! Below are the spots I have open. Please let me know ASAP if you can help!!! I can be reached at fundraising@springwaterschool.
Scrip cards are regular debit gift cards for specific stores or restaurants. Scrip is a dollar for dollar exchange and costs you nothing. When you purchase and use a Scrip card, the participating business donates a percentage of what you spend to Springwater. You don’t spend a dime more than you would have spent anyway and you support your child’s Outdoor School fund at the same time!
