Updates from the Leadership Team

Dear families and community,

We had a great first week back after our winter holiday. Students have gotten back into routines and are eagerly preparing for Science Fair and U.I.L Competitions! We'd like to extend our appreciation towards visitors and their awareness of designated parking areas. Your efforts keep our students safe.

UT Hosting Spicewood Elementary Spirit Night
Come support Spicewood by attending the Spicewood Appreciation Night at the Longhorns vs. Texas Tech basketball game. All fundraising revenue goes to Spicewood PTA. The game is February 6th at 1:00 pm at the Frank Erwin Center. The class with the most students attending will get a chance to high five the players as they come onto the court. If 150 tickets are sold then those attending can go on the court after the game! Tickets are only $12 and can be purchased through the PTA store.
