IGNITE:  Our Differences Unite Us
Hosted by Northern Guilford Middle school's 
2014-2015 SPARK Club

Northern Guilford Middle School students had an exceptional year in Spark Club this year!  The 30-40 students that showed up every Tuesday morning before school had the dedication, energy and determination to make their community school better!

Their annual project was an effort to "involve everyone" at their school.  IGNITE included Spark members creating a school-wide survey, speaking in front of multiple class assemblys, conducting a school-wide "What Makes You Unique" project and facilitating a "Special Needs Challenge Course".

Truely unbelievable!!!
