From the desk of Jessica Mize, SPARC Coordinator:
This week during an Upper School assembly held for all students not already signed up for SPARC, our student body was enlightened regarding all of the amazing SPARC courses available this year.
Each SPARC instructor came before the student body and described their course in detail. Students were able to choose their top two choices or contemplate the options and sign up later.
Registration through Ren Web is available in addition to a hard copy sign up available in the library. Students must be registered for a course no later than Monday, October 16th. Please see the list of courses, instructors, and cost below.
