appy Friday SPARKS Families!

Thank you to everyone that attended our Ties and Tiara’s Dance on February 15th. It was so sweet to see our students dressed in their best outfits and dance the night away. We try to make memorable events for our students and families, and we hope you enjoyed the dance.

On February 27th, we will be hosting our Black History Month Showcase. This year’s theme is “Let’s Talk About It.” It will be a great opportunity to learn about black historic leaders such as Angela Davis, Rosa Parks, Barack Obama and Lebron James, amongst others. We will have special performances and speakers.  We hope you’re able to come celebrate with us!

We hope you enjoy your 3-day weekend with your families. As a reminder, please ensure students are on school daily and on time. Our attendance has declined significantly this semester and we need your support to make sure our babies are maximizing their time at school and getting the best education possible. Thanks for your support in ensuring students are at school daily! 😊

Have a great weekend! 

Ms. Saavedra
