We are all waiting for spring weather to arrive! It has been a challenging winter with so many cold and snowy days. Thank you all for your patience and flexibility when school buses run late or schools have had to close. I would also like to thank you for taking time to attend our family events. Our movie night sold out the theater! We also had fantastic attendance at our Family Fun Night. It is always great to see families having fun together.
Spring Conferences are just around the corner. Families will be receiving conference request letters in the next week. It is so important to meet with teachers to discuss the progress being made this year. Teachers are also prepared to share ways you can help your child continue the learning at home. Conferences are scheduled on Monday, March 18th, from 4-8, Thursday, March 21st, from 4-8 and Friday, March 22nd, from 8-12.
The deadline to apply to a new school for next year is February 28th. All students that are currently enrolled at our school will be automatically enrolled here next year. Most fifth grade students follow the district pathway and are enrolled at Creative Arts. Parents must fill out enrollment forms if you desire a different school. The Placement Center can answer any questions you may have regarding enrollment. Their number is 651-362-3760.
We look forward to seeing families at our annual spring concert We are so proud of our talented performers! Our primary concert is on March 28th, at 1:45. Our spring concert, featuring our orchestra, is Thursday, May 23rd at 10 am.
PTO is another great way to get involved with our school. It is a time when we can discuss curriculum, provide strategies to try at home, learn more information about your children, and visit classrooms. Our next meeting is March 5th at 8:30 am.
Thank you for choosing SPMA!
