School Supplies

We have an abundant supply of paper towels, Kleenex, disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, index cards, loose leaf paper, and most sizes of Ziploc bags.

We ask that you not bring these items to school at this time. If you have already bought any of these items, we kindly request that you store them at home for the time being. 

We are still in need of:

  • Ziploc XL bags to store extra clothing and winter gear in lockers.

Thank you for your cooperation in this regard!

School Uniforms

We are aware that several uniform items are now on backorder when purchasing online. The Dennis Uniform store located at 7055 W. Higgins Avenue in Chicago is currently carrying a very limited inventory of Embers uniform pieces.
We hope that you are able to obtain your uniform pieces so your Spark can begin the school year ready to go!
