Ignite- SPARKS at the Next Level

Welcome to the hub for the SPARKS and Ignite programs!

SPARKS and Ignite provide all of the the things that people have come to expect and enjoy in our programs. These programs continue to offer homework help, work on math, STEM and language skills, provide different enrichment opportunities, host special family nights and offer exciting field trip opportunities for students.  In addition, high school Ignite programs offer credit recovery, college and career readiness, and a focus on job skills.

SPARKS programs are located in Beaverton, Clare, Coleman, Farwell, Gladwin, Harrison and Meridian school districts. Ignite programs are located in Beaverton, Farwell, Gladwin and Harrison.

If you would like more information about a SPARKS or Ignite program or are interested in enrollment information, please contact the site coordinator at your child's school or the Sparks/Ignite office at the Clare-Gladwin RESD.   

I look forward to working with you as we "Ignite" a passion for hands-on learning for a "SPARKS-tacular" school year!
