Sparling Newsletter

Nov. 26, 2020

Dear Families,

At this time we wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to our community which continues to support our Sparling School during this difficult time of change and uncertainty. Please remember that at anytime you can reach out to the school if you have questions or concerns. We are here to support you and your family. Please remember Dec. 3 is Early Dismissal!

We have some exciting news to share with you all. Sparling school would like to welcome Kiva Olson into our new Grade 1 position. This is a wonderful opportunity for our youngest learners to continue to grow! The current Grade 1 class has been split now into two classes and their programming will be beginning on Nov. 30! Welcome Miss Olson! Please see below the information regarding arrival & dismissal times.

In this newsletter you find information on the Daily COVID-19 Checklist, Virtual Christmas Concert, Toonies for Turkeys and information about the online learning week following Christmas break.

  • Teachers will be available for support, google meetings, and checking in with families during this week

In person learning will resume on Jan. 11.
