CONGRATULATIONS GIRLS ON THE RUN!

Congratulations to the SPES Girls on the Run team for completing their 5k (3.1 miles) on Saturday! Everyone ran a great race--we are so proud of your accomplishment!

Be on the lookout in early August for information about our Girls on the Run fall season, which will be open to all girls in 3rd-8th grades.

4TH GRADERS SHOW ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Saturday was an exciting day for our SPES 4th graders and the citizens of Lafayette Parish were the lucky beneficiaries of our 4th graders' efforts! SPES participated in National Lemonade Day which promotes entrepreneurship in youth. As Mrs. Finley, Mrs. Prejean and Mrs. Quinn made their rounds visiting their students' Lemonade Day Stands they were blown away with the effort put forth by the students. The teachers said, "It was awesome to see our students outside the school day applying what they learned in our classrooms as they became the best entrepreneurs in Lafayette Parish! One stand made over $150 in just one hour of their opening! We are so very proud of our students!"
