Welcome to the beginning of our Minnesota winter weather! As a reminder, the district’s weather policy is on our school’s website. We were fortunate to receive a large donation of hats, mittens, and scarves from the “Marvelous Mitten Makers”. Each classroom brought a supply to their classroom in the event someone needs something warm to wear at recess. Our students do go out for a 15-minute recess each day, unless the temperature drops to 0º. Our family center also has an extra supply of warm-weather clothing available.
Fall conferences were a success at SPMA. Thank you to all of the families for taking time to come and meet with our teachers. Communication between families and school staff is critical. Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher if you have concerns and would like to meet, in addition to the designated conference days. We also encourage families to attend our PTO, evening events and Bring Your Parent to School days.
We are excited for our next family event – the winter concert. Students will perform at 1:30 and 5:30 on Tuesday, December 19th. Ms. Kelly is including more detailed information about the concert in this newsletter. There will be a spring concert in May, featuring our orchestra.
Thank you for being a part of the Saint Paul Music Academy community.
