A big thank you to all of our wonderful preschool families for making the 2015-16 school year such a good one! If this was your last year with us, please stay in touch--we will miss you! If you will be returning to Spark in the fall, have a safe, fun-filled summer and we will see you in September!
We will wrap up the year at our annual Spark family picnic on Thursday, May 12 at Heritage Park Antrim Shelterhouse (the park is at the corner of Cleveland Ave and W. Main Street). Bring a lunch and stop by for a last hug and good bye. Cookies will be provided. Spark staff will be at the park rain or shine!
ALL OF OUR MORNING CLASSES ARE FULL, EXCEPT FOR ONE OPENING IN THE FRIDAY 2S. IF YOU REGISTER FOR A MORNING CLASS, YOU WILL BE PUT ON A WAITING LIST. PLEASE CONSIDER REGISTERING FOR AN AFTERNOON CLASS.
Registration for our next school year will begin on Feb. 1 for current families, and Feb. 10 for new families. Registration is done online; click on the "Register Online" tab and fill out the form and pay the $50 non-refundable registration fee. If you are registering multiple children, you will need to complete a form and pay for each one. You will receive a confirmation email letting you know your form was successfully sent and received at Spark. You can assume, UNLESS YOU HEAR OTHERWISE, that your child was placed in the class you requested. We do not do class placements until the summer, but unless you hear from us, your child will have a spot, as long as you completely registered and paid the registration fee. Registration is not complete until the payment has been made, and simply filling out the form does nothing to hold a spot. Only a complete registration holds a spot. New families must pay first-month's tuition within 30 days of registration.
As the cold weather comes upon us, here's an explanation of Spark's weather policy:
1) If Westerville City Schools (WCS) announce in the morning they are cancelling classes for the day, for snow- or other weather-related reasons, Spark will be closed for the day too.
2) If WCS have a 2-hour delay in the morning, Spark morning classes will be cancelled. Afternoon classes will still be held, unless further cancellations are announced.
3) If WCS announce they are cancelling afternoon kindergarten classes due to the weather, Spark afternoon classes will be cancelled.
Any time the conditions seem iffy before you head out to Spark, please check local news channels, the Spark website, Facebook, our phone line or text your child's teacher. Spark will not be named specifically on news media, but whatever WCS is doing, so are we.
