We Know You’re ‘Lookin’ Fine’!

Also starting Monday, students who successfully wear all uniform pieces each month will be able to participate in our monthly ‘Lookin’ Fine, All the Time’ out-of-uniform days. Students qualifying for this privilege will be informed by their teacher. Thank you for making sure our Sparks are ‘lookin’ fine’ every day!

A is for Apple… and Awesome!

The Fourth graders celebrated Johnny Appleseed Day this past Monday across the curriculum! In math, the students solved problems to decode instructions for drawing an apple orchard, solved logic problems involving apples, and made chunky cinnamon applesauce. In reading, the students read “The Case of the Half-Eaten Apple,” using clues and critical thinking to solve the case.

Picture Day: Wednesday Oct. 12

Mark your calendars now for the 2022 Picture Day. As a reminder, all students should wear their uniforms – and best Spark smiles! – for
their photos.

Update: All-School Rosary

October’s all-school rosary has been moved to Monday, October 17th. As always, family and friends are welcome to join us at any all-school rosary. We hope to see you there!

Please help us in welcoming our newest Sparks from the Kaziol family: Frank (K) and Anthony (PK4). We are excited to have you at Embers!

Spark Athletes Shine!

Yesterday was Spirit Day at Embers in honor of soccer and cross country teams who are both wrapping up fantastic seasons over the next few days. Our athletes were invited to come to school in their jerseys while their fellow Sparks filled the hallways to celebrate their hard work with high-fives, cheers, and bubbles! Congrats, Spark Athletes, on a great year!


We hope you will spread the word and invite your friends to experience Embers! Registration for both open houses is available now:
