Fifth Grade Leadership Day

The Fifth Grade class participated in Leadership Day on Friday.  It was an awesome day filled with activities and discussions about friendship, leadership, and service.   Northridge and Willows students visited and talked to the 5th graders about these topics and how they can use their gifts and virtues to have a successful transition to middle school. They also enjoyed a pizza lunch and team building games together!

Sweet Goodbyes!

We have had a great three weeks and our Sparks are slowly getting into the swing of things! We kindly ask parents to show your child that you have confidence in them by allowing them to walk to their lockers and classrooms all by themselves! 

Starting next week, we ask that you say your ‘sweet goodbyes’ by either using the drop-off line or walking them only to the Breezeway entrance. Enabling them to accomplish this small task will help reinforce their confidence in themselves as an Embers Spark.  Teachers are there to guide them to ensure they learn this morning routine.

Cross Country News

Congratulations to the Cross Country Team on their final Meet!  Everyone competed well and had a great season! AJ Ravago received a trophy for 11th place and medals were won by Lauren Beall, Ava Donahue, Thalia Avila, Javier Humber, David Barder, James Anastasi, Michael Carpenter, Andrew Paschall, Jaxon Quinley, John Paul Duffy, Paul Malone, Tommy McShane, Joseph Bahjat!
