Principal's Corner

Emily Caster at Graduation

Greetings Sparrows Point High School Students and Families,

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I would like to say how thankful we are to have our parents and the community’s support.  With your help, it has been a positive and productive fall season at Sparrows Point High School. Our school community will continue to raise the bar and achieve 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 are proud of the many ways our students represent SPHS through academics, athletics and extra-curricular activities. Our Quiz Bowl Team was recently featured on “It’s Academic,” airing Saturday mornings on WJZ television. Our team earned a second-place finish and did an outstanding job! Congratulations to the entire team and sponsor Dr. Holland.

The Trashy Fashion Show earned rave reviews earlier this month with the theme “Decades and Eras.” Our students shined on stage with their original designs created from reusable, recyclable items. Thank you to Art Department Chairperson Ms. Lord for her coordination of this outstanding event. Thanks also goes to our panel of judges: Danielle Alderson, Chick-fil-A Eastpoint, Patty Rode, SPHS Alumni Association and Garrett Ames, SPHS Art Department.

The fall sports season was once again a huge success! Many teams and individuals advanced to post-season play, culminating in a record setting sixth consecutive state title for girls soccer team. We continue to be incredibly proud of the achievements of our student athletes, both on and off the field.

In closing, a reminder that we welcome and encourage active involvement from our parents and families. Please join our PTSA, attend a parent workshop, follow us on Twitter @SparrowsPointHS, access our school website, and attend the many activities and athletic events here on campus.

I look forward to working with you throughout the remainder of the 2018-19 school year. Should you have any questions or concerns, I invite you to contact me directly at

Kind regards,

Emily J. Caster
