Little Spirit

Elementary Schools

Our special education recreation programs for grades K-5 emphasize social skills while children enjoy unique games, crafts and role play.  The curriculum addresses: making and being a good friend, dealing with social challenges, listening, sharing, following rules, understanding & expressing feelings and self-esteem.

Magic of Music

All ages/grades

Music therapists lead a lively, interactive, goal-oriented program, involving children in singing, movement and musical games. Small classes allow children to explore rhythm and rhyme, percussion instruments, and dramatic play. Our goals include: receptive and expressive language, social skills, improved attention and self-expression.


Middle/High School

A fun time for teens to socialize, build independence, confidence and self-esteem. SPIRIT is a lifeline for teens who have not had an appropriate way to participate in the after-school community.  Activities may include:  games, art, music, movement, discussions and other typical teen interests.  SPARC helps students deal with social challenges, develop new interests and leisure skills. 

Summer Magic

All ages/grades

An extended school day for summer special education students to enjoy structured summer recreation fun: water play, outdoor games, gym time, music therapy, art and more.  SPARC staff are available to collaborate with faculty to carry-over social skills goals.
