Attention 4th-8th graders:  It’s not too late to join the Cross Country team!  Practice and meet information can be found here.  For more information, email athletics@spma.com

Join us this Thursday evening for Back to School Night.  This is a parents only event.  We will begin promptly at 5:30 pm (in your child’s classroom) and end with an assembly.  Our goal is to end by 6:30 pm so that no one is out too late on a school night.

We are off to a great start for this year’s Annual Fund!  Thanks to first day donations and a $2,500 match by Mrs. Cotter, we are already close to 50%  of our $20,000 goal.  We are striving for 100% participation from our SPMA family.  Please consider a donation today: Annual Fund Donation Form

LAST DAY

cq5dam.web.520.520

Dear Parents,

We can’t believe that the school year has come to a close.  Thank you so much for your wonderful support!

Tomorrow’s bridging ceremony will take place indoors due to the weather’s unpredictability.  We ask that only the families and guests of the graduating kindergartners and 3rd, 6th, and 8th graders attend due to space.  The procession will begin promptly at 9:30 am.  All doors will be closed and entry will not be permitted until after the procession has ended.  Please be on time.

Lower school and any siblings will be dismissed at 11:30 am.

Upper school will be dismissed at noon.

There is no lunch, nap, or after care.

The office will reopen on Tuesday, May 29 at 9:00 am.  There are very limited spaces available for summer camp and a few yearbooks remaining.

See you in the morning as we say good-bye to the 2017-2018 school year!

Field Day is tomorrow!  (Scroll down to last week’s archive for groups, so that your child can rock his/her color!)  Note that we may reschedule due to thunderstorms and will decide on an hour by hour basis.  All affected students will be notified via classroom email.  Children will still participate in light rain.  Any lightening or thunderstorm threats will result in that group moving to Thursday, May 24.

Yearbooks20on20Sale

There are only 20 yearbooks left for sale!  Be sure to return your 2017-18 Yearbook Order Form today!

Field Day is coming!

542a0991e17aae1bb28eae481c6d1d79b401d9fa_fieldday-editorial

We are excited to have Field Day 2018 on Tuesday, May 22nd!!!  All students who participated in Fitness this year (i.e., those who stayed a full day in their primary room) will have a morning of fun outdoor games from 8:45-12:00 in two separate groups.

Students will be placed on teams and given a team color. They are encouraged to wear their color in any shade and any way they want (red bow, red shirt, red shorts, red hat, red headband, red wristbands, red shoes, or even all of them). Anything your child chooses to wear will most likely get wet, so keep that in mind when helping your child choose his or her outfit.  Show your SPMA spirit!

Your child will need to wear his or her spirit outfit and sunscreen to school. Please make sure a water bottle, towel, and a change of clothes (they will get wet!) are packed for Tuesday, May 22nd.
