One Down, Two to Go!

It is hard to believe that – as of yesterday – our first trimester has ended and we are 1/3 of the way through the school year! There is still time to sign up for a parent-teacher conferences on Monday, November 21, using the link below. To be respectful of our teacher’s schedules, please note that conferences will only be held on Monday.

As a reminder, there is no school next week to allow for conferences, the faculty in-service day, and the Thanksgiving holiday. All classes will resume on Monday, November 28.

Conference Sign-ups

Embers’ Unique Pillar of Partnership
One Pillar of Partnership that is unique t0 Embers is the strong connection between parents. Social and informative gatherings, often sponsored by Embers Parents Association, foster a community that serves as cheerleader, sounding-board, and confidant for parents throughout our school.

Another vital example of our parents’ partnership is through tuition assistance. By donating to the Annual Fund, our parent community is actively helping make an Embers education more affordable for those in need. These donations give hope to families who may not otherwise be able to attend Embers.

Please continue to strengthen and unify our Embers community with a donation to the Annual Fund. It is through 100% participation from parents, faculty, staff, and board members that we can support the Essence of Embers!
