The second set of overdue book notices are going out Friday. If your student receives a notice, you are able to do 1 of 3 things:

1) Return the book.

2) Replace the book with a hardcover edition.

3) Pay the book fee noted on the notice to Mrs. Roque.

If you have received an overdue book notice by mistake, please reach out to Mrs. Roque on Class Dojo or by email mirna.roque@yesprep.org

Dear Sparks Families,

Please be sure to review your child’s backpack/folder for a medication pick-up notice. Please arrange to pick up your child’s medication on the last days of school: May 30, May 31, and June 1, 2023. I have also attached new health forms for next school year to be completed during the summer.

Please feel free to reach out to me for any forms you may need.

Have a safe and fun summer break!
