SPS Week Ahead

The SPS Week Ahead compiles a list of some of the events taking place throughout the district as well as some important reminders. 

Hope you have a great week! 

Solar Eclipse

As we get ready for the solar eclipse later this afternoon (Monday, April 8th), DESE posted some information about the eclipse which you can take a look at hereNASA also has some information about the eclipse. The solar eclipse, which occurs when the moon passes directly between the Earth and the sun, blocking the sun from view, will begin shortly after 2pm on Monday and will last until about 4:30pm. Even though Stoughton isn't in the path of totality, 91.7% of the sun will be covered in Stoughton, and it is still important not to look directly at the eclipse without proper eye protection

Spring Author Series

The second visit in our Spring Author Series takes place TONIGHT, Monday, April 8 from 5-6pm when Mia Wenjen comes to the Hansen School (1800 Central St.).

Abutters within a calculated zone of interest to the project are being invited. The meeting will include a brief project update and a Q&A session to address as many neighborhood concerns as possible. While this will be a public meeting, the primary focus will be geared toward the concerns of the neighbors of the site.

Finally, save the date for the next public forum about the building project - Monday, April 29 at 6:30pm at the South Elementary School. More details will be provided closer to the 29th.
