Director's Message

Denis Mailloux

Mr. Denis Mailloux, Director

August 2021

Welcome to our incoming Spark families and welcome back to our returning families! The staff and I are thinking of this third year together as Spark 2.0. After a major disruption to our program in March of 2019 and a year of varying conditions in 2020 - 2021, we can return to the kind of in-person instruction that we began with and return to full use of the technology classrooms and labs in addition to our other classrooms. The 2021 - 2022 school year will be a refreshing change in many ways. Welcome to Spark 2.0! 

This is an exciting time for Spark Academy! Our curriculum continues to grow as our third-year students begin moving into a variety of Early College classes and begin a new chapter in their education. These students will truly be college students, a fairly remarkable achievement for students in only their third year of high school. Some of these students will continue with the Manchester community College Advanced Manufacturing Program while others will explore other options in the college’s curriculum. This is a major landmark for our school and our students! 

Spark 2.0 is a time to get back on track with the hands-on program and in-person experiences that our school is built around. It is a time to continue building on the vision that is at the core of who we are, one that brings our students to the threshold of an exciting future of technologies that are literally exploding around us!

Please read this Parent/Student Handbook carefully. Each school year brings updates that help us remain relevant and provide our students with an orderly and focused school experience. Handbooks are certainly about rules, but beyond that, they help us realize the goals established for us in our vision and mission. In doing so, handbooks become an important road map for us to follow.

Again, I want to welcome all of you. We are going to have a great year together!

Yours in Spark,
Denis Mailloux
