fundraiserOur PTSO kicks off their biggest fundraiser on Wednesday and we need your support. All students will attend a Great American fundraiser assembly. Please look for the information packet tomorrow afternoon that we will send home with your child.

This year, not only will you have the ability to purchase and renew your favorite magazines – we are now offering personalized photo products – such as photo books, calendars, posters, post cards and other items that would make great gifts. Please be sure to take a look at the brochure inside your student’s packet.

The money raised by PTSO goes directly into Swiss Point to enhance instruction, purchase technology or provide events for your child.

Thank you in advance for your help with this important fundraiser and remember every order counts!

Edmodo Update!

Remember that the parent view of Edmodo is very different from the student view. You may want to use your child’s account. As we continue to use this program if you have suggestions on how we could make things better, please email Mrs. Kunze.


We need parents who want to be a part of the School Advisory Council. Members meet once a month, typically after school from 3:30 pm to 5 pm.

Interested in Volunteering?

 SPMS uses the website SignUpGenius.com to request volunteers to help at the school. Throughout the school year, emails will be sent advising help is needed for dances, proctoring, snow cone making and so much more! SPMS is fortunate to have a great group of volunteers and I am sure the 2014-2015 will be a success for the students partially because of you!

ALL parents that plan on entering the building during the day before or after school, even if students are not in the building, need to be cleared. We are asking that EVERY parent or guardian that might be on campus for a conference, IEP meeting, 504 meeting or for anything else, PLEASE click on the link below to register for access.


St. Johns County Dress Code

No jeans or shorts with holes showing skin anywhere 4 inches above the knee. Pants MUST be worn at the waist.

Early Checkout Procedure

As indicated in the Student Handbook 2013-2014: As a safety precaution, students will only be released to the parent/guardian or the Emergency Contact listed on the Emergency Card. A current driver’s license or state issued ID must be presented in the front office to check a student out early. The following procedure will be strictly enforced: NO student may be signed out after 1:35 p.m. every day except Wednesday. The latest early checkout on Wednesday is 12:35 p.m. Parents must arrive in the front office no later than 1:30 p.m. (or 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday) in order to sign their child out early. Students who check out during the school day due to illness are not eligible to return to the school that same evening for any activities as a participant or a member of the audience.

Parent Drop-off & Pick-up

Students can be dropped off starting at 7:10 am. They will sit in the library until 7:30 am when students are released from the buses. The parent drop-off line is extremely busy in the morning, so we encourage your child to ride the bus if they are eligible for that service. If you drive your child to school, we ask that he/she be ready to exit the vehicle quickly when you stop in the loop. Please say your good-byes and give kisses while waiting to turn into the drop-off loop.

When dropping off or picking up, please do not block the entrance to the neighborhood, The Colony. Residents have been complaining that they can not get in or out. Also, please do not pull in the grass at the entrance of The Preserve to avoid the line and drop-off your child. This is unsafe and destroying the entrance of this neighborhood.
