Springdale Park Elementary (SPARK) students and parents got a chance to visit their classrooms and tour the school today at the second annual “SPARK Sneak Peek” back-to-school event. Students had the opportunity to spend time in their classrooms and interact with their teacher and classmates, while parents learned about after-school enrichment programs, signed up for PTO volunteer events, and chat with Principal Yolonda Brown.
“Our annual ‘Sneak Peek’ is our most exciting back-to-school event because it gives our parents and students an opportunity to meet the entire staff before school starts and for our children to spend two hours with their teacher,” said Brown. “This gives them a sneak peek of the great instruction and enrichment that they will experience daily at SPARK throughout the school year.”
“The first year was really exciting,” said David Rein, SPARK PTO president. “To be able to go into the second year with everything so organized is so great. It’s a unique experience to have the combination of the physical space, the community, and the leadership and staff come together in such a perfect way.”
“We are really impressed with all the options children have at SPARK. The hands-on approach to learning, the talented teachers and principal, and the LEED certification,” said Dominique Cruz-Tucker, mother of entering kindergartner Triston. “They are very organized and have it together.”
