SPARK Warren helping kids get ready for school


Warren City Schools is proud to be involved with the SPARK Program, in partnership with Community Solutions and the Raymond John Wean Foundation. SPARK helps our students build Reading, Language, Math and Social Skills before they enter Kindergarten. Those core areas are currently the main focus for all students in the District from Kindergarten through 12th grade; SPARK helps give our youngest kids a head start on their education.

Another one of our primary focuses in the Warren City Schools, is Parent and Community involvement, we encourage parents to become involved with their children’s education. SPARK provides monthly one on one interaction with the child and a Parent Partner in their homes. Parents are encouraged and supported to become part of their child’s learning. SPARK families are provided a new book, activity and art supplies each month to help promote an ongoing learning environment.

Warren’s SPARK success results are among the highest in the state, and we feel that it will continue to help our students as they progress through the Warren City Schools.

Community Solutions recently held a Press Conference to share this years results from the SPARK program.
