Winter Blues?!

Not at Embers! The Sparks have done a marvelous job maintaining their cheerful spirits through the bitter cold and indoor recess due to inclement weather. They seem to have embraced the true way to begin the 40 days of the Lenten journey! Let’s follow their lead and find how we, too, can joyfully live the path of holiness!


On Monday, February 22, all current Embers families will receive a 2021-2022 Re-Enrollment Contract via myEmbers! portal that every family (at least one parent) should have previously established. New families will begin enrolling on Saturday, March 20. For more information, please click HERE.

If you have not set up your myEmbers! account, please contact Karen Reardon at kreardon@embersacademy.org.  Please expect to receive more detailed enrollment instructions on February 22.
