On Monday, we will be walking with the rest of the school to the Alameda Theater for a movie in recognition of Earth Day.  This has become an SPN tradition.  

Thank you for your support of our final fundraiser of the school year.  The Fun Run will be Tuesday, April 24.

Next Thursday, April 26, will be the Celebration of the Arts.  Artwork will be on display in the hall followed by the Spring Concert in the church at 7 p.m.  Students should be brought to the classroom after 6:30 p.m.
