Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We are always happy to see so many of our families returning each year. It is also great to welcome new families to our SPMA community. Thank you to the many that completed all of the forms on iUpdate. We will send paper copies of necessary documents to those families that were unable to complete the forms on-line. Please return all documents, completed, to your child’s classroom teacher as soon as possible. Contact our office if you have a change of address or phone number during the school year. There are times when we must contact a parent due to a student illness, and it is important that we have current information in our system.
Our website is updated throughout the year, and families can find important information on the site. Our school calendar lists all events, including dates that schools will be closed. You can also check to see if there are any bus delays. There are many resources for parents and students on the website, as well. Check us out at: spma.spps.org.
There are a few events coming soon. Join us for a family roller skating event on Thursday, October 4th, at Saints North. We will be sending flyers home, and there will be a text message sent out to families as a reminder. This is a very popular event, and funds raised support our positive behavior events throughout the year. We will also start, “Bring Your Parent to School” visits on September 25th with second grade. This is a time for parents to visit classrooms and have a chance to discuss the curriculum in each grade. Check our calendar for all grades and dates.
We are fortunate to have many supports at SPMA. We are an Achievement Plus site that offers assistance with housing, employment, dental, mental health, etc. Contact Craig Sweet at 744-2238 if you would like more information.
I am looking forward to an excellent year and, and I am excited to watch our students grow, both academically and socially. Thank you for your support – we are a great team!
