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

Prior to joining the SPA faculty, Mrs. Anderson spent three years teaching health and physical education at St. Anthony middle school where she also coached volleyball and track at both the middle school and high school levels. In addition to her role in the Upper School, Mrs. Anderson will also serve as an assistant coach for SPA’s track team in the spring and an advisor on the 9th grade team. “I love being physically active and I love teaching students to love being physically active. I’m excited to join SPA’s faculty where I have the opportunity to share my passion for health and wellness with the students.” Outside of school, Mrs. Anderson enjoys traveling, spending time with family, and being active in any way possible.
