Congratulations to Sturgis Parents Association (SPA) leaders Kristine Jackson, Robyn Hardy, and Catherine Thomas for organizing such an amazing 2016 Auction. The food was really tasty, the auction items were diverse and stimulated a great deal of interest, the East and West jazz bands performed admirably, and the whole atmosphere promoted a spirit of camaraderie and commitment to support the school. Sturgis is so lucky to have such outstanding support SPA, the parent community, and faculty. The whole night was such a success due to the tremendous work of the SPA volunteers. Thanks so much for an unforgettable night!!

SPA sent the following update about the successful 2016 auction to the Sturgis community:

Best Auction Ever!!! This year’s SOLD OUT Gala Event was a HUGE success!!  We had 300 parents, Board of Trustees, Corporate Sponsors, Faculty, Staff and friends of Sturgis in attendance.  Everyone enjoyed the beautiful new venue, amazing food at the Coonamessett Inn of Falmouth, as well as live entertainment by the Sturgis Jazz Bands and auctioneer (some say comedian), Sean Randall.  Thank you all for coming out and supporting Sturgis!

As most of you know, the majority of our auction proceeds will be earmarked for a new Sturgis Community Center that will accommodate IB testing, performing arts, assemblies and athletics.  This past Saturday night, we unveiled a special Fund-A-Cause auction item, “The Hieser Court”, a basketball parquet floor to honor our Executive Director, Eric Hieser for all his years of dedication to Sturgis.

Before finalizing our numbers, we’d like to give all parents and friends Sturgis who were unable to attend this year’s Gala Event the opportunity to participate in “The Hieser Court” Fund-A-Cause.  This is our one and only fundraising event for Sturgis, so please support our cause and consider making a donation.

Our sincerest thanks and appreciation once again to the entire Auction Planning Committee, corporate and local sponsors, Sturgis Jazz bands, auctioneer, Sean Randall and the countless PARENT volunteers who donated their time, talent and treasures to help make this event an overwhelming success! We could not have done it without your dedication to Sturgis! Thank you so much!

SPA Luncheon 1SPA Faculty Appreciation Lunches

On Tuesday, June 14, the Sturgis Parents Association once again outdid itself by providing outstanding faculty appreciation lunches at West and East. The multitude of options for fine dining on salads, sandwiches, hot dishes, fruits, and sweets challenged the faculty to decide from so many inviting and tasty treats that many faculty remarked that they may not need to have dinner that evening! We want to thank the SPA for providing such an culinary experience that was so appreciated by the faculty. Yes, we do feel appreciated. Thanks so much!

Many thanks for the generous support of Sturgis Parents Association
