A Splash Of Color!

On Wednesday, June 17, 2015 Spruce was honored in having Genentech volunteers cleaning, painting and beautifying our Spruce campus. We had about 200 volunteers participating and giving back to our community. A huge thank you to Genentech, volunteers and all the project leaders from the Hands On Bay Area. Many of the projects that we identified and collaborated on were completed and look amazing! Thank you to Mrs. Makovkin for donating her time and helping out in the garden area and supporting the volunteers with the project.

Lunch Money!!

We still have many students with outstanding lunch balances from school year 2014-2015. Please pay your child's lunch balance as soon as possible, it is imperative that balances are paid. We understand that money is tight, but if these balances are not paid Spruce School will have find money from other sources. Thus limiting the tools our students need to get a proper education.
