The PTO/PTAs of ALL the Sparkman Schools have gone in together to host the Harlem Wizards Tricks and Basketball Team for a comedy-type event on Feb. 10, 2019, at the Sparkman High School gym. The ENTIRE community is invited and we hope to have a sell-out crowd!

Proceeds from the event will go directly back to our schools! Tickets go on sale beginning Nov.1 (online right now). There will be a contest running from Nov.1-10. For every ticket purchased, the student's name will go into a drawing to win a Harlem Wizards swag basket worth over $100.


During the show, the Wizards will be playing against the "Home" Team, a team made up of players from each of the Sparkman schools.If you would like to know more, there is an informational meeting at Legacy Elementary School at 6 pm on Monday, October 29 and would love for you to attend!
