Carnival Day of Fun

PreK3 and 5th Grade students celebrated the letter C last Friday with an afternoon of carnival games!

The Embers Campus
Over the past few years, your loyal and enthusiastic support has made the growth of Embers Academy a reality. As more families join our community in search of faith, knowledge, and virtue, the demands on our facilities continue to grow as well.

The partnership between parents and school includes our commitment provide a warm, welcoming environment where students can learn and play with ease. Maintaining that environment, however, is not always easy! Your contribution to the Annual Fund closes the gap in operating costs for our growing facilities. Each donation allows us to provide for current classroom necessities while also supporting our wish list for future improvements.

With your enthusiastic generosity, we can continue to refine our campus into a modern, efficient environment for our Sparks!

December Virtue & Spirit Day

This Friday, December 2, will be a Spirit Day for our December virtue, Honesty. All students are invited to wear their red Spirit Shirt and casual bottoms to school!

Embers Dads Club: Tuesday Night!

Our PreK4 students had delicious afternoon at their long Thanksgiving table!

Cold Weather Bag

Over the next few days, teachers will be sending home Cold Weather Bags for each student. We ask that you fill these bags with gear for snowy days: a pair of snow pants, mittens, boots, etc. The students will be using these items during outdoor play and the bag will be sent home after each use to be “dried out”.
