PTO News

Thank you to all of our families, staff, and friends who have joined the PTO or expressed interest in volunteering for school events!  The PTO officers put together a wonderful Parent’s Night Out last week, and they look forward to increasing attendance.  They have posted sign-up sheets for various school events, ways to get involved, and help on the bulletin board in the lobby.  Please sign-up soon!

The PTO would like to plan events that are convenient for all families and would bring us together as a community. To be able to do that, we’d like to get your opinions on what would work for your family.  Please join the Sea Pines Montessori Academy PTO group on Facebook, if you haven’t already, and give your opinion on our online poll. The PTO’s hope is to bring our families together to learn more about the school, more about each other, as well as create a resource for our parents. The stronger we are as a community, the stronger the school can be as a whole.  Thank you for participating!


This week’s Cross Country meet will be right in our own backyard at the Sea Pines Forest Preserve!  The race will begin and end on Hilton Head Prep’s Football Field.  The Varsity race begins at 4:00 p.m. and Middle School race, which SPMA will be participating in, begins around 4:45 p.m. Please come support your fellow Gators!!!



Final Call for Basketball Sign-Ups: SPMA Basketball practice will begin during the week of October 30th.  If your child is interested in playing, please contact Athletic Director Ben Kozik at benkozik@spma.com if you have not done so already. Practices will be from 3:00-4:30 p.m. with exact days to be determined.  There will be a fee associated with playing.


Don’t forget that school pictures are coming up!  Photos will be taken on October 17 and 18.  Classroom schedules will be sent out at the end of the week.  Uniforms are not required either day; however, if your child has fitness or cross country, he/she will need a change of clothes and sneakers.


Parent-Teacher conferences will take place on October 19 and 20.  Sign-up forms will be placed in the lobby at the end of the week.  Don’t forget to save this important date!  Remember that children should not be present for conferences.

Don’t forget to schedule an observation prior to conferences by emailing chrisharris@spma.com and your child’s teachers!  We’re sharing one of our favorite articles in the meantime: Article in Forbes magazine
