Making history, the SPHS Dancing Blue Diamonds Dance Team participated in the 2017 UDA National Dance Team Championships that took place at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL on February 3rd and 4th. These young ladies performed in Varsity High Kick Division, ranking 16th out of 32 teams, at one of the biggest competitive dance experiences in the country. This opportunity to showcase and amaze audiences was that of sheer joy and a proud moment for our community and school. The competing team members of the Dancing Blue Diamonds were: Aaliyah Hinton, Akhia Cross, Asanta Mackey, Mikia Riley, Shyonna Turner, Monee Smith, and Brooke Ingraham, under the coaching instruction of Ms. Chancell Hymes, Head Coach and Ms. Lynn Ingraham, Asst. Coach. These young ladies poured their heart and soul into their performance and left it all on the dance floor. Great job Diamonds!
The Blue Diamonds give a special thank you to, Mr. Barthelemy and Mrs. L. Martin for their support and confidence in our dance program.
It's hard to believe that we are already planning for next school year! On February 8th, our 8th through 11th grade students participated in our annual electives fair that is put on and manned by our upperclassmen. Scheduling will begin soon and our elective fair allows students to get an idea of which pathways they might be interested in pursuing. Pathways include Health Science, Digital Media, and Manufacturing and Logistics. Please speak with your students regarding the pathways they might be interested in and make sure to look out for the scheduling forms that will be coming home in the upcoming weeks.
Members of the SPHS National Honors Society were invited to attend the LEAD Conference in Washington, D.C. this weekend. They had the opportunity to tour our Nation's Capital prior to the conference where they participated in leadership workshops to enhance their leadership skills to bring back to campus.
At the end of 10th grade year, all students must choose to work toward a Jump Start Tops Tech Diploma or Tops University Diploma. There will be a mandatory meeting held on February 13, 2017 at 6:30pm. All sophomores and a parent/guardian must attend the meeting. Students will not be allowed to schedule for next year's classes unless they attend the meeting. Please contact Mrs. Slavich if you have any questions or concerns at 595-6425.
