Congratulations to our Scholarship Winners

Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Dr. Mark E. Chamberlain Scholarship – Divya Balaji, Michael Buckberg, and Shannon Colson. Each student will receive a $500 scholarship. The Dr. Mark E. Chamberlain Scholarship was established in 2014 to honor Dr. Chamberlain, who retired that year after serving 12 years as SPMS principal. The scholarship honors former SPMS students whose passion for education have made them leaders in their community.


8th grade dance

8th Grade Dance: Enchantment Under the Sea

The 8th grade dance will be Friday, June 9 from 7-9 pm at SPMS. There is no charge for students to attend the evening, which will have an “Enchantment Under the Sea” theme and include a DJ, photo booth, raffle prizes, food and drinks. Students should wear semi-formal attire and do not need to come with a date. Tickets will be distributed through Puma Den in the coming weeks.


Donate Items or Time for Eighth Grade Dance

Want to donate food or gift card prizes for the 8th grade dance? Have some time to help set up, assist during the dance or clean up? Sign up on nList (there are 3 separate lists). You don’t have to be an 8th grade parent to donate items or time.


Are You a Puma Patron?

It’s not too late to make your gift to our spring Puma Patron Drive. This is the sole PTSA fundraiser and allows 100% of your donation to directly support programs and activities for our students and teachers. We plan to use the funds raised to support our regular programs as well as renovations to athletic spaces, fund music and arts programs and assist with school beautification efforts.

Thanks to those Puma families who have already supported our campaign with your generous gifts. No gift is too small, and every gift is tax deductible. Be sure to check with your employer about matching gifts as well. Make your gift today.

Keep the Conversation Going

Thanks to the students, families, teachers, volunteers and community members who helped make our two showings of Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age so successful. We had great feedback both during and after the events and encourage you to keep the conversation going. There are a variety of resources, including screen time contracts and information about parenting apps to help manage screen time, available at www.screenagersmovie.com.

Thanks to our sponsors – Camp Unplugged, Hanover Sports Park, School of Rock and STEMgeo – for their support of this program.
