Bobcat E-Envelope

March 23, 2023

Hi SPS Families,

Our 2023 Wine Mixer is just under one month away and we are getting excited to host an evening of food and drinks to celebrate SPS! New for this year, Howl at the Moon Chicago will take the stage as our entertainment, featuring dueling pianos with songs by request! It's sure to be an incredible night out and we hope you can join us and invite others to attend. In support of SPS, sponsorships are available and the information is below. Please consider reaching out to your network to help us spread the word and support our school!

The 2023-24 calendar has been finalized for next school year. Please see below for more information.

Tomorrow Student Council is having a Popcorn Day! Popcorn is $1 each. Also, there is no Friday Fun Lunch or FSP Lunch tomorrow so please send a lunch and drink from home.

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