At the January General Session meeting last Wednesday, the PTSA membership voted to endorse Levy 1 and Levy 2 that are on the ballot for the upcoming election. We were lucky to have Linda Seabring, SPS Budget Director, talk about the impact of the levies on next year’s budget. The presentation she gave is available for download if you weren’t able to attend.
Ballots are being mailed now – please remember to vote!! Ballots are due February 12.
