First Annual T-shirt Fundraiser

We are kicking off the school year with a t-shirt fundraiser!

This school year will certainly be different, but even though we aren’t physically in school together, all Cool Spring Elementary students, staff, and community members are still part of one big penguin family. In the spirit of unity during this initial Distance Learning phase, the theme for our first annual t-shirt fundraiser is Together or Apart, Always a Penguin at Heart!

Purchase a shirt today to remind your student of their penguin pride even when learning virtually!

Half of all fundraiser revenue this year is designated to the Cool Spring Playground Capital Campaign. 

We appreciate your commitment to this project, and we can’t wait to get started once we reach our goal!

Art Exhibit – Together or Apart, Always a Penguin at Heart

Check out our artistic students!

Two videos belowone is the “virtual exhibit” (video by our very own Ms. Thompson) and the second captures the actual space for those who are not yet physically in school to see the exhibit set up.

If your student would still like to to turn in a self-portrait, there is still room for every student who wants to be includedthese will hang until the end of the year!

We compiled the “Staff Favorites” lists that were submitted to the office staff for you (paper copies still available at school).

Staff – if you didn’t get a chance to submit your sheet and would like your information added, please let us know!
