Honoring Lost Loved Ones

First grade, lead by Señiora Carpenter, prays a decade of the rosary in Spanish for the souls of the departed.

Courtesy Means Being Thoughtful

The virtue competition is on and parents are rejoicing! To reinforce this month’s virtue of Courtesy, students have been helping set the table for dinner and practicing their most courteous meal time behavior.

Last Friday’s virtue assembly, lead by the PreK classes, taught us how important it is to be courteous and always say “please”!

At Embers, the spirit of partnership is all around us. Whether it’s 4th grade students celebrating National Playdough day by making “snowmen” with the Kindergarten classes, or our grade 5 classes working with PreK on Box Day to let their imagination fly, our students learn at an early age that working together is the best way achieve a common goal.

The partnership at Embers between parents and school is also a critical to the Essence of Embers. With your generosity, we were able to complete much-needed upgrades to classrooms and teacher facilities this summer. These updates have allowed our students more space to learn and play on a daily bases. With our Annual Fund, every dollar you donate goes directly towards improving our Embers community!

Our 2022 Annual Fund goal is to hit 100% participation from current families, faculty, staff, and board.

We hope that you will join us in ensuring the success of Embers Academy by donating to the Annual Fund today!
