An important letter from Principal Barbara Evangelist

  • Dear SPMA family,

    I am writing to address the killing of Mr. George Floyd by Minneapolis police on Memorial Day, and the community unrest in the Twin Cities and across the country.

    As a school community, we have been navigating the unexpected challenges of distance learning during a pandemic. We understand that much of the burden of additional responsibilities, academic oversight and juggling interruptions in work schedules has fallen to our families. (Click here for the full text)


    Music is the common language at our school: all students receive violin instruction in Pre-K, kindergarten, first and second grade, along with vocal music and keyboard. In addition to music, classes in science, technology and physical education give students variety beyond core academics. As an Achievement Plus school, we also offer housing and employment assistance, dental care, and other services to students and their families. Learn more...
