"A Night at the Social Media Cafe"
Hosted by SPARK Club

Northern Guilford Middle School students came together to educate their peers, parents, and other community members about the importance of social media etiquette. After months of preparing, the day finally arrived for students to debut their infomercial, share the touching pieces of artwork and use their newly found leadership skills to educate their guests. The Night at the Social Media Cafe was a huge hit with students, parents, school administrators, and all other guests! 

A special thanks to the NGMS PTSA, especially Maggie Molnar and Lisa Donato for their help, and all of the SPARK Club students. Our first SPARK Club was a success! Visit Our Programming page to learn about our 2014-2015 academic year SPARK Clubs!
