Art Club: Architecture
Thank you to Mrs. Rivas for another fantastic session of Embers Art Club! Our Spring class allowed our Sparks to experience the world of architecture. They learned about schematic design as they created collage presentations featuring their favorite design elements.

Embers Book Fair Begins Wednesday!
This week, we will host our brand new spring book fair!

They aim to foster a love of reading and ensure that children can access literature that aligns with Christian values. Parents are welcome to join us for shopping during any of our fair hours!
