January 10, 2018
Dear Sparrows Point Students and Families,

Happy New Year! We are looking forward to an outstanding 2018 at Sparrows Point High School! During 2017, we certainly accomplished a great deal as a school and community. There is much to be proud of and I look forward to another great year together. I am honored to work with our amazing students, staff and families.

As we kick off 2018, we will continue to focus on raising the bar and achieving excellence in academics, athletics and civic engagement. Our goal is to have every student graduate from high school prepared for the demands of postsecondary education, meaningful careers and effective citizenship. 

We welcome and encourage active involvement from our parents and families. Please consider attending our next PTSA meeting on January 11th, following us on Twitter @SparrowsPointHS, accessing our school website, reading our quarterly community newsletter, or attending the many activities and athletic events here on campus. We value a productive partnership with you to ensure all students can achieve their highest potential.

Please note that there is a three hour early dismissal for all students on Friday, January 19th.


In the coming weeks, we will host many exciting events:

Audition packets can be found outside of room 100 which consist of monologues (which you will need to prepare two, and you should try to memorize them) and the required selection "I'm a Believer" to be sung.  If you would like to be considered for a lead role, be prepared to sing one of the three selections provided.  (“Big Bright Beautiful World”, “Morning Person”, or “Don’t Let Me Go”.)
