Tradition Continues with K-12 Arts Integration

The 2013-14 school year is an exciting year for Spook Hill and McLaughlin as we begin Phase II of an arts integration project that will lead to a complete K-12 arts integrated program in Lake Wales.  You will find new attachments with information about the program and an application for arts majors at the middle school level.  This information was presented at the parent meeting on April 25th at both McLaughlin and Spook Hill.  The application is for students entering 6th, 7th or 8th grade who are interested in auditioning for the accelerated arts and academic classes at McLaughlin this fall.

Business Partners

We, at Spook Hill Elementary School, recognize that school-business partnerships can make a vital contribution to strengthening public education.  We are preparing students for the working world and trying to help them realize that their first job is school.

 Spook Hill Elementary is hoping that we can partner with you by helping us supplement our current budgets.  We are asking businesses and families to donate what they can to Adopt a Grade Level/Special Area.  Your donation would be used for a variety of different instructional activities.  In the past, business partner money has been used on school supplies, improving technology, student incentives, art supplies, school beautification and many other projects.  The money will be put into our Parent Teacher Organization account, so that teachers can easily access the money. 

 Even though we could never fully give you a return on your investment, Spook Hill Elementary will advertise your business or family on the school marquee, school newsletter, and website.  You will also receive thank you notes from the students and recognition at the end of the year thank you event.

 If you are interested in joining our school as a business partner, please check the box you are willing to donate and you may send it to our address below or I will be happy to come and pick it up from you.
