Though campus was closed and masks were required for part of 2021's fall semester, there was a good bit of excitement, celebration, fellowship and outright fun to be had at SPES! Whether it was Homecoming, Turkey Bowl, Christmas Caroling in the gym or religious gatherings such as the All School Rosary or Blessing of the Advent Wreaths, our SPES family loves to come together to celebrate all that makes us so SPESial!
Spring 2022 has more student and family fun events in store for the SPES Family!
Homecoming 2021 was planned, in its entirety, by a committee of student leaders with faculty, staff and parents serving as helpers. The first outdoor pep rally was a huge hit and we will be hard-pressed to go back to an indoor pep rally. The SPES Spirit was as high as it has ever been and the dress days were phenomenal. One of the greatest things about Homecoming was the level of attendance at the Homecoming Game where we were able to welcome back a record number of alumni!
The 2021 Turkey Bowl saw the annual event expanding from 7th and 8th grade student and parent teams competing against one another with the addition of an alumni (Class of 2021) vs. SPES Faculty and Staff game. The competition was intense but the fun had by all, on the court or off, far exceeded anyone's desire to win!
Advent at SPES
The season of Advent saw the return of the school-wide Blessing of Advent Wreaths, a Blessings Manger at the entrance of school, PreK parents joining with their children to make Jesse Tree ornaments and the entire school joining together to sing Christmas Carols with Santa "Father Poirrier" Claus making an appearance!
