SPA will be closed Tuesday, January 23, due to the snow and hazardous driving conditions. Please note that school will be closed entirely on Tuesday, including all classes, athletics, and extracurricular activities. We do not make this decision lightly. Like you, we would much prefer our students to be in school, but today’s extreme weather makes travel unsafe for everyone.
Thank you for your understanding, and please stay safe.
Bryn S. Roberts

Jenny Irene Merrick Borovsky
The daughter of parents who were teachers and farmers, Ms. Borovsky says, “You might say that I was born to teach math! I like seeing students understand how math connects to other areas and how it is useful in their daily lives. Beyond that, I want students to see mathematics as beautiful in its own right.” Ms. Borovsky, who has taught at SPA since 2000, is also the Manager of Academic Data. In this role she does the scheduling for grades 6 to 12, manages report cards, transcripts, and works with other grade related data in the Veracross database. She is the middle school math teach coach, a team which has recently enjoyed many success both regionally and at the state wide level. The team participates in the Jr. High Math League, MATHCOUNTS, and the AMC 8 exam. From 2000-2010, she coached all three athletic seasons (volleyball, basketball, and track) and was varsity head volleyball coach for five of those years. She hopes to return to athletic coaching when her children are older. She has received grants for professional development and received the Edith May Sliffe Award, given to teachers whose students score well on the AMC 8 exam. Mrs. Borovsky earned a B.A. in mathematics from Gustavus Adolphus College. She is a member of the Minnesota Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. She is married to Steve and is a mother to three children.
