SPS is focused on anti-racist, equity-aligned grading practices that support greater accuracy, anti-bias, and student motivation and growth mindset in classroom grading.

Join Administrators, Teachers & Staff for Curriculum Night. There will be two sessions, one starting at 6:00pm and the other at 6:30pm. Grade Levels will be presenting information regarding the curriculum. There will be an allotted time to ask questions regarding curriculum. Please note that this is not a time to discuss individual student needs with the teachers, those can be addressed during the daily Family Engagement time. Each Grade Level will send out their own MS Teams link for this event. If you haven’t heard from your teacher with a link to the meeting, please contact them directly ASAP.
