“I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream!”

Save the New Date for Embers Ice Cream Social! 

Sometimes it’s good to break tradition. Due to Embers’ family becoming increasingly so large, we are going to break tradition and have the Embers Ice Cream Social after the start of the school year, instead of before. 

Be sure to mark your calendars and save the New date: Sunday, September 12, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., held at Embers Academy. More details coming soon!

Parent/Teacher Conferences

Embers will be holding Parent-Teacher Conferences prior to the start of the school year. This helps us more effectively partner with parents in educating your children. 

Each conference will last 15 minutes. Information on how to register for these Conferences will be sent in next week’s newsletter. Parents may drop off school supplies at this time.

First Day of School

September 7th, 8:20 – 11:30 a.m.

All PK-5th grade students will enjoy a HALF DAY of school on Tuesday, Sept. 7th. In next week’s newsletter, we will provide detailed information regarding  DROP OFF and PICK UP procedures. For all returning families, the procedures and route remain the same as used this past school year. 

Moms and Dads, no need to leave after drop-off — please join us at the “Welcome Coffee” to meet other parents. This is a great time to get acquainted or reacquainted! Information follows below… 

Welcome Coffee

ALL PARENTS are invited for a Welcome Coffee immediately after morning drop-off until 11:30 a.m. on the first day of school. Please join us in the field across from the Breezeway Entrance.
