I want to support SPARC!    Give Now

Hello, readers!

Welcome back to the SPARC blog!

After a relaxing Spring break, we quickly “sprung,” forward  into motion for the month of April . Activities this month include: End of the year student performances, Camp fairs, and Storytime at Barnes and Noble –  never a dull moment at SPARC.

We celebrated the end of our year-long theatre training classes, with student performances at the Gottwald Theater. It was  truly a rewarding experience to watch the students perform, and we all beamed with pride. It was wonderful to see the young actors display their talents and showcased impeccable performances.  As these classes came to an end, we all agreed, we  will  miss seeing these stars.  Hopefully, they will return for our SPARC Summer camps.

Speaking of rewarding activities, members of our SPARC staff participated in Richmond Family Magazine’s Adventure Expo Camp Fair at Peak Experience on April 16th.  During this expo, we had the pleasure of speaking  to hundreds of families about the many classes SPARC offers, while providing  detailed information about our Summer camps.  We certainly created a lot of interest.  We enjoyed meeting  many new families and hope to see new enrolees  at SPARC in the near future. Our summer camps are selling out quickly – – WSign up now while spaces are still available.   For more information, please visit our website at: https://www.sparcrichmond.org/summer/.

Last, but not least, this month the  SPARC educators  once again visited our friends at Barnes and Nobles for their  popular “Storytime,” event.  During Storytime, we read a variety of books including:  If you Give Pig a Pancake,  There’s a Bird on Your Head (An Elephant and Piggie Book), Llama Llama Red Pajama,  and Pete the Cat’s Big Easter Adventure.  Below please find pictures from the event.  Roarbert, SPARC’s famous  lion, was a hit with the Storytime attendees.   He can be seen in the attached pictures enjoying his favorite hobby…reading  of course.   Below, also find a video link of our time at Barnes and Nobles.


Thanks for following our SPARC April adventures; We appreciate your interest.

Until next time, Laina
