Reptile Show is coming to Embers!
There is still time to sign up for the Extravaganza Party: Reptile Show! This exciting, educational, and interactive event (which replaces the Hotcakes with Heads breakfast) features reptiles from around the world. But it’s not like other shows – OUR students are part of the experience. Your Spark may be called on to to pet, hold, and handle animals that normally live behind glass at the zoo!

To register, please fill out the form below and return to the front office by Friday, March 28th.
