Hello SPHS families,
Here we are, another year gone by, marking the end of a decade. Yet no matter how much time passes, SPHS PTSA’s mission has remained the same. For 100 years, our focus has been to advocate for the educational, social and emotional well-being of our students. Our founders could not have imagined the challenges our students would face in today’s school climate. Yet our message of service to SPHS still rings true and is needed now more than ever.
As we welcome in a new decade, and we all ask ourselves, “What can I do better?” “How do I make a difference?” I would continue to encourage you to support SPHS PTSA. It may sound simple, but you would be surprised at how thankful and reenergized teachers and staff feel after our PTSA lunches. Or how much your Wish Night and “No Sweat” donations make a difference in our students’ everyday lives. Even just signing up and becoming a member of our PTSA is a reminder that we are a strong, supportive Tiger community. You are the difference; you make us better.
We would not have made it this far without every single volunteer that has answered the call to help by giving time and/or financial support. On behalf of the 2019-2020 PTSA Executive Board, THANK YOU!
I look forward to continuing serving our community with you in the New Year. Let’s make these new “Roaring 20’s” ones of great change and renewal.
Our next General Meeting will be January 27, 2020. Please join us.
