October 30th, 2017

Good morning Pointer Students, Parents and Families,

It’s hard to believe that Homecoming has come and gone, and we are only a few days away from November! Homecoming was a great opportunity to celebrate our students, our school pride and the great things happening at our school! Please join me in thanking our teachers, coaches, parents, PTSA, Athletic Booster Club, students and athletes who made Homecoming a success for our school community. It was great to see the huge number of parents, grandparents and families who came out for the football game! It was a great opportunity to showcase our talented students and beautiful stadium facility.

The first marking period ends on Friday, November 3rd. We expect that report cards will be distributed on Thursday, November 16th.

The next few weeks will continue to be busy at SPHS:
