Principal's Corner

Emily Caster at Graduation

Greetings Pointer Students and Families,

Please take a few moments to check out the latest edition of our student run school newspaper, “Point Line,” featuring stories about special events and wonderful students!


Of special note to the Junior class is SAT Day, on April 9th. Many Juniors have been hard at work on Saturday mornings, attending SAT prep sessions. All Juniors are encouraged to use their Khan Academy accounts to prepare for the SAT, an important college and career assessment.

The next few months are an exciting time for our upperclassmen, with prom and graduation just around the corner. We will once again be hosting University Maryland R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center to speak to our Juniors and Seniors to provide information about the consequences of dangerous decisions so adults and teens can make a healthy, safe and informed decision. The assembly will take place on March 27, after which parents are encouraged to continue this important conversation at home.

This is also the time of year we eagerly await our school musical! This year, Sparrows Point High School proudly presents, “The Little Mermaid.” Show times are April 5 and April 6, at 7:00 pm and April 7, at 3:00 pm. You will not want to miss this spectacular performance, we hope to see you there!

Lastly, congratulations to the Science National Honor Society who competed in an engineering challenges (MESA) at Morgan State University last week, and earned 3rd place in the region!

Kind regards,

Emily J. Caster
