Yes, You Can Pray at School!
We all know about the separation of Church and State. It may be surprising to some that at SPN we actually support that concept! We don't believe the school is a place to "evangelize" or impose our own religious convictions on staff, students, or families. But that doesn't mean you can't pray when the opportunity presents itself!

Roosevelt Summer Nights

For the past 7 years, Southlake Community Church has offered just that to the Roosevelt High School community, with incredible results.

This all too familiar scene played out once again at Reynolds High School on June 10, the day before school ended for the summer. The events on that Tuesday had left two young men dead, hundreds of other students and their families shaken, and the staff of both high school and the Reynolds District stretched to their limits. If there was ever an opportunity for SPN to make a difference, this was the time.
