New: INTRODUCING FLESS TO DCS: Classes to begin Monday September 22, 2014.  INSTRUCTOR: SENIORITA CAITLIN MOORE
 “FLESS:” a Spanish language learning program that will be provided for all elementary students in Westerly Public Schools during this school year. Foreign Language Early Start Spanish (FLESS), by definition, is a proficiency-based sequential language learning program which aims to provide students with introductory linguistic and cultural competency in Spanish.  Leaders in our district have chosen this model for early language learning in light of the fact that it is strongly supported by an overwhelming amount of research in the field of education and has been adopted and implemented successfully by many other school districts, locally and throughout our country. This year, students will participate in the program for 40 minutes once every other week for the duration of one semester. 
Welcome to Springbrook!
Please feel free to watch our introduction to Springbrook School below.

The Supper Table
Families are invited every Monday from 4:30-6:30 pm for a hot, nutritious, free supper served at Tower St School Community Center!!!

Our chefs prepare wonderful meals, served to you in a comfortable dining environment.



ALL AGES WELCOME!
Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
Our students are offered fresh fruits and vegetables every Tuesday and Thursday. Locally grown produce is used when in season. We encourage all children to taste test their fruit and vegetable cup. This experience creates  an excellent opportunity for a dinnertime conversation starter. Please ask your child to share his or her experience and facts they have learned about fruits and vegetables.
Excused from PE/Recess
Should your child need to be excused from P.E. due to a health concern or injury, please ask your physician for a doctor's note excusing your child. It would be most helpful if the note states if the exemption also includes recess and what any limitations may be.
Tardy/Dismissal
IMPORTANT REMINDERS
We do not provide supervision before 8:25. Please do not deliver your child to school before this time.
School begins at 8:45. Students who arrive after the 8:45 are marked tardy.
We begin the school dismissal process at 3:10. Students who are dismissed before 3:10 are marked as early dismissal, and counts against attendance record. Students are dismissed to the bus room, walker door, or the parent pick-up door. If you routinely pick up your child, please us the parent pick-up door.
REMINDERS
Please record your child’s name on the tag of all outerwear. We have collected many items which are currently located in the "lost box" outside the gymnasium.
 
Students must wear sneakers with socks on the days they are scheduled to have physical education class. Failure to wear or bring to school sneakers will prevent a child from participating in PE class. 

We do not have the staff to supervise children before 8:25 AM. Please avoid delivering students before 8:25.

Students who enter the school building after 8:45 AM are considered tardy and must report to the Main Office by a parent or caregiver.

We do not celebrate holidays or birthdays with food. We appreciate the intention, but please refrain from sending in food to share with your child’s classmates.
 
Boxtops for Education
Please continue to clip and send in all your BOXTOPS!

Please send your child to school with a backpack and a refillable water bottle. Also, sneakers must be worn on P.E. days. If you need assistance with sneakers, backpacks or water bottles, please call Mrs. Locke at 401-348-2298.
