Principal's Corner

Emily Caster at Graduation

Greetings Pointer Students and Families,

As another outstanding year at Sparrows Point High School comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the school community for your efforts and hard work.  The 2017-18 school year was filled with much praise and recognition for our school, including being named by U.S. News & World Report to their list of, “Best High Schools,” and “Excellence in Magnet Schools.”

Our athletic programs had another exceptional year, with county, regional and state titles, both team and individual, throughout the fall, winter and spring seasons. We look forward to continuing excellence in athletics under the direction of our new Athletic Director, Mr. Paul Latanishen.

Our music, theater and art programs had an outstanding year. The musical, “Shrek” was a huge success, and we saw individual and ensemble recognitions in music and visual arts, including a performance at the State Choral Festival.

As we continue to work together, I know we will accomplish a great deal more in the coming years. Once again, thank you for your continued support and encouragement of Sparrows Point High School. Our school continues to succeed as a result of the strength and commitment of our students, staff and families.

Please be sure to follow our Twitter page @SparrowsPointHS and also to check our website for updates throughout the summer, including information about the student parking lottery and schedule change dates. I wish you a restful and enjoyable summer! Relax, read a good book and enjoy time with family and friends.

Kind regards,

Emily J. Caster
