We are off to a great start! Teachers have been assessing students to find out what they know and determine any areas for growth. We are building on our love of reading in Reader's Workshop each day by listening to and reading great books. In Math, we started the year with a review and now are moving into our grade level standards. Please read the classroom newsletters for learning specific to your child's grade level.
-Principal Lee and Assistant Principal Glaser
Hello SPMA, my name is Mr. Matthew and I am your new Library Specialist. I look forward to working with you and your kids to improve their literacy and encourage them all to become stronger readers... no matter your home language!
What to expect this year:
- Students will bring books home weekly, please read with your children
- Books are checked-out for one week
- Myself and teachers will help guide their choices
- Students come to library once a week to listen to stories, pick their books and participate in activities
- Students will be able to earn Reading Rewards to redeem for prizes
We will be sharing some activities for helping students with math and reading, as well as our Annual Title 1 informational meeting.

Digital Inclusion Program
Our partners at Neighborhood House have a new program that can help cover the expenses related to internet services called Digital Inclusion. Connect with them to see if you qualify or if you have questions. They are very knowledgeable and willing to help.
As a reminder, we are again partnering with Children’s Dental Services to have dental care at school. Our first visit will be on October 13th. Please reach out if you want to participate or need a new registration form.
