From academics to extracurricular activities to our famous SPP Nights Out, we want to give our students the full American high school experience.
We’ve already held our year-opening camp, played our first fall sports, and ate some chicken at our all-school picnic in the first few weeks of school.
We wanted to give you a breakdown of what’s coming up for the rest of the semester. There will be changes, such as adding more SPP Nights Out, but this will give you a good chance to mark your calendars. You don’t want to miss out!
Since our goal is to prepare students for university and beyond, we want to provide every opportunity to explore your options for higher education. We’ll have over 20 representatives from schools across the country on hand to give you all the information you need to aid your decision on where to attend university.
October 7, 7pm | SPP Night Out #1: MN United Soccer Game
Minnesota’s newest professional sports team, MN United, is part of America’s highest pro league, MLS. The game is at TCF Bank Stadium on the University of Minnesota’s campus, as MN United’s new stadium is constructed.
October 11 | PSAT Testing
The PSAT (Preliminary SAT) is much more than just a pre-test for the SAT. Students who perform well on this test are eligible for scholarships from colleges and universities around the U.S. The PSAT tests skills in reading, writing, and math, and takes 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete. Don’t miss out!
October 27 | Halloween Dance
Break out your best costume and dancin’ shoes! School dances are as American as apple pie, and this one you get to dress in your scariest attire!
November 22-24 | Thanksgiving Break
Your first big break from classes, Thanksgiving is a time for family and food in America. Fill up on turkey and forget about homework…for awhile, anyways.
December 7 | Art & Talent Show
Start planning your act now! Our talent shows are always a hit with students (and teachers get in on the fun, too!). We also get to show off the work of the talented artists of SPP, as works of art are on sale before and after the talent show.
December 22-January 8 | Winter Break (Travel Opportunity #1)
While not the end of the semester, Winter Break is the first chance our students have to return to their home countries to visit family and friends (and escape the Minnesota cold!). Make sure to have your visa in order before departure!
