Sparks Shining Bright

Our Sparks outshined themselves during Spirit Week!  Highlights included “See the Spark” where students earned a brightly-colored ‘spark’ when exhibiting virtue around the school. These sparks were added to our Embers Flame throughout the week and it is now truly ablaze, showing the virtue and charity that permeates our days at Embers!

“Lord, may your children be like very well lit embers, …Let them be
embers that will set alight each heart they come into contact with.”

St. Josemaria, The Forge #9
