Big thanks to all the parents, teachers and community members that came out last Friday night and participated in our Auction & Gala. As we head into the week before Fall Break, we still have a couple of big events happening this week. PTA will be hosting a Spirit Night at Moonie's Burgers this Tuesday from 5-8PM. 4th grade teachers, Mrs. Kim, Mrs. Framjee, Mrs. Forsthoffer and Mrs. Money will be in attendance for part of the event. 4th grade students will put on a music performance this Thursday at 6PM in the cafeteria. We invite all to come and join us!
Spicewood Auction & Gala
Spicewood Auction & Gala was a huge success. We thank everyone who came out and donated. Special thanks to Mrs. Nicole Giannetta for being in charge of such an awesome event that brought the community together. We also appreciate all the parent volunteers who put in countless hours to plan and prepare for the event. Big thanks to teachers that came out to volunteer and support as well. Spicewood is so lucky to have such a supportive community!
Three of Spicewood students- Sean T., Duncan G., and Jacob L.- won 3rd place for team in the second grade section at the 21st Annual North/Central Texas Grade Chess Championship. We are so proud!

Spicewood T-Shirt & Hoodie Sale
Mrs. Kim is doing another round of T-shirt Sale this year after getting positive responses about last year's staff t-shirt sale. This year we've added hoodies to the option. Adults can have a zip-up hoodie while students can order a pull-down hoodie. Our very own, Mrs. Ashli Framjee, designed the awesome design. The money raised will fund instructional materials, resources and teacher training. Sale ends on Friday, December 1 [Deadline has been changed since the initial flyer was shared]. You can access the Order Form in the Friday Folder. Prices are included on the order form.
Walk or Bike on Wednesday in November!
Our PE teachers would like to promote Walk or Bike on Wednesday in November to encourage students to get active while helping to cut down on the number of cars around the school at drop off and pick up times. Please see the official flyer placed in the Friday Folder.

Sighting of Coyotes in the Neighborhood
If a coyote is seen during the day, engage in hazing, a process that encourages coyotes to avoid contact with people. Information on hazing can be found on the website here.
Gravels on the Playground
Please have a friendly reminder conversation with your child(ren) at home that gravels or rocks on the playground are to stay put on the ground during recess.
