SPS Today: Much-Needed Improvements to Ballet, Football Facilities
Over the summer, the School made improvements to the ballet and football facilities through the generosity of donors and the School’s own capital improvement funds. Donations from a small group of current parents accelerated long overdue renovations to the ballet locker rooms in the Dance Building. The space was reconfigured and the original fixtures – from 1979 – were upgraded with new showers, new lockers, and modern finishes. The project was completed in honor of Director of Dance Jennifer Howard ’92.
Also over the summer, thanks to the support of Vince Guzzo P’17,’19, the football field inside Tien Track was completely rebuilt, amending and re-grading the underlying soil, adding new irrigation and drainage, and rolling out brand new sod. The project also includes a new, elevated handicap-accessible grandstand – with a press box for filming – and a new scoreboard. In the summer of 2018, SPS will install field lighting in order to host night football, soccer, and lacrosse games. On October 14, during Family Weekend, the field was rededicated as Guzzo Family Field, check out the video below.
