September Newsletter 2023 Posted on 08-22-2023

Hello students and parents! Fall season is just getting underway! As the school season starts, we should be inspecting our goals and reviewing our progress daily. Practice is important always. With school activities starting up, it is sometimes hard to get into a routine to support everything that a student wants.Encourage yourself (or your family member students) to keep a consistent schedule to support school studies and activities.

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 announcements and schedules.
