Dear SPARK Families,
Celebrate the gorgeous month of May! The sun is warming, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and our SPARKS are growing! We are so proud of our SPARKS. They have worked relentlessly hard in Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies, and during Core Enrichment Classes. In fact, we will have a Core Enrichment showcase night this month to showcase all the great things SPARKS have been learning this semester. Families as we get ready to end the year strong, tell your SPARKS how proud you are them. Remind them of how great they are. Let them know how much you love them for all their hard work this school year. Because honestly, they are one school year smarter! So hooray for them! Be sure to check out the calendar for all the great events that will take place this month including End of Year Award Ceremony.

There will be over 1000 student artworks lining the walls, STEM and Library projects, and P.E. stations set up- oh my! We hope to see all our families there to celebrate our students' accomplishments this year in Core Enrichment!
