have a great summer

Be sure to check our Facebook page this summer for updates on all the great things happening with the SPMS PTSA! See you in September!


8th Grade Dance: Enchantment Under the Sea

Congratulations to the Puma Class of 2017, and thanks to this year’s Dance Committee and all the SPMS families who donated time or items to make this year’s 8th grade “Enchantment Under the Sea” dance a night to remember. Special thanks to Dr. Luorno and West End Orthodontics for donating the photo booth to capture all those Puma smiles!


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.


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.
