October Newsletter 2023 Posted on 10-03-2023

Hello students and parents! Fall season is i full swing! As we continue through the school season, continue inspecting your goals and reviewing your progress daily. School activities  can sometimes be hard to keep up with if you don't have a routine to support everything.

If you have not downloaded the Spark Member app, please do so. Important announcements will be sent through the app and email. Students are able to check into classes from the app upon arrival, and memberships and payments can be managed directly there. In addition, students should be able to access curriculum items (doucments and videos) in the app. If you have questions or are having trouble getting logged in or cannot access things you believe you should, check with Mr. Koivisto.

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 whiteboards in the school for class plans, announcements, and schedules.
