From the superintendent

Today may be the first day of our Community Giving Campaign, but I know it is not the first day that you have given back to our community. For everything you give, I thank you. SPPS employees truly understand that your giving changes lives. Changing lives is, in fact, why we come to work each day to serve the students of Saint Paul, and why last year we donated more than $150,000 to help create positive change for our community.
