July Newsletter 2023 Posted on 06-22-2023

Hello students and parents! Summer season is rolling along! Continue to evaluate your progress, set new goals as others are completed, and record your path in your journal! The spring time growth should be taking bloom and helping you become better every day.

We have siwtched away from Kicksite and PayPal. Be sure to get the Spark Member app to set up your account. This will allow everything to be tracked in a single program - student records, invoices and memberships, communications, and payments. We are planning on moving away from BAND, but there are still things we are waiting on for the full switch. Until we are ready, expect to continue to get messages in BAND, Facebook, and email as in the past you will eventually also start to get them in the Spark Member app. Everyone will need to get memberships set up in the system for Summer season. Mr. K is willing to help each of you in person at the school to make things go smoother for everyone. It takes 5 to 10 minutes to get access set up and your membership in place, and will save time for everyone going forward. If you have questions, be sure to connect with Mr. K so that you aren't over paying by mistake!

The following are some important dates to remember. Each announcement is tagged with a program to help our members know which items are most important to them. Don't forget to check our Class Schedule as well as the Band app and the whiteboards in the school for announcements and schedules.
