    Dear Families,

    The 2016-17 school year is moving fast! It is hard to believe that spring conferences are just around the corner. Help us reach our goal of 100% by attending your child’s conference. It is critical that families and teachers work together to celebrate strengths and identify areas of our growth for each of our students. Conference slips have been sent home – please contact your child’s teacher if you have not received a slip. It is also important to contact school if you need to adjust your appointed time. As a reminder, conferences are Wednesday, March 22nd (4 – 8); Thursday, March 23rd (4 – 8) and Friday, March 24th (8 – 12).

     Is your child missing a coat, hat, mittens, sweatshirt, etc? Our lost and found is overflowing! We will put all of our found clothing items out on tables during conferences. Tables will be set up in the library. Please stop by to retrieve any lost items. You can always check the bins the cafeteria for lost items, as well.

     It’s time to start planning for S-Term 2017. Here are some important dates to keep in mind:

    • S-Term 1: June 19 - July 13
    • S-Term 2: July 17 - August 10
    • CDF Freedom School: July 17 - August 25

    Brochures will be sent home this week. The priority deadline for families is April 14, but applications will be accepted after this date. Please contact the Office of Alternative Education at 651-744-8020 with questions.

    Applications have also been accepted for school choice for the 2017-18 school year. Letters will be arriving soon to homes for those families that have applied for a new school next year. If you are a current pre-K through fourth grade student at SPMA, you are automatically enrolled here next year. Most of our fifth grade students are automatically enrolled at Creative Arts. Those that wish to be enrolled at a different school need to fill out an application through the placement office or on-line.

     Thank you for your continued support of our awesome school. We love serving your children! SPMA welcomes all families and thrives on our rich diversity.
