“It all began with a shoe on the wall.
A shoe on the wall shouldn’t be there at all.”

-Dr. Seuss

Join us as we celebrate WACKY WEDNESDAY at SPMA!

Students are invited to dress WACKY for the day as we enjoy a morning Variety Show and discover that our school and classrooms aren’t quite as we left them…

A few rules for Wacky Wednesday: No costumes, makeup, masks, or things on the head. Students must still be able to comfortably participate in the work cycle and recess. Parents are welcome to attend our Variety Show (9:30 am).  Bring chairs or beach towels!

Beta Club Pays It Forward & Free Dress Day

img_2524  img_2523  img_2522

SPMA’s Junior Beta Club contributed to the Hurricane Matthew relief efforts!  They spent Monday after school cleaning up the school grounds, and Tuesday afternoon delivering cases of water to relief workers (tree removal, extraction, debris teams, etc.) in Sea Pines.  Thank you to Chris Lane, owner of Culligan Water Conditioning of the Low Country, for donating a pallet of water!  After providing all of the classrooms and teachers with water, we were left with so many cases, so the Beta Club paid that donation forward and continued the chain of gratitude.  It is so nice to see everyone helping one another and showing that we are all #hiltonheadstrong!
