Bobcat E-Envelope

March 16, 2023

Hi SPS Families,

Tomorrow is a "green, white, and/or orange" out-of-uniform day for the students and staff in honor of St. Patrick's Day!

Monday will be a "red" out of uniform day in honor of St. Joseph's Day, which falls on Sunday. 

Tomorrow is an 11:30 dismissal for the students. There is after-care offered. If you were not contacted by any of the teachers to come in and meet at some point on Friday afternoon, then you do not have to attend the optional parent/teacher conferences. If you were not contacted, but would still like to talk to any of the teachers about anything, you can schedule a meeting for any day next week. Please reach out to the teachers directly if you would like to meet to schedule a time. 

As always, if you have any questions or need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me.
