Grizzly Bears Newsletter for July 2017

Happy to July Grizzly Families,

Summer camp has been an amazing adventure. We hope you have heard many stories telling you all about the fun & excitement of our field trips & in classroom activities from your kiddoes. Listening to them talk to each other about their favorite or grossest parts of their day is always a thrill for us. It is wonderful to see the enthusiasm in their eyes & desire to return every day.

The month of July is expected to bring the heat.  We would like to thank our Grizzly families for providing a water bottle and sunscreen for each student. We would also recommend a sun hat for those kids that are willing to wear them.  We have been known to wet a hat with water to help cool off our young friends.  We like to keep the students cool, hydrated and burn free.

This month we have a parent offering to do a Pearl Party for our class on July 21st.  This will be a class where each student gets to open their own oyster to get a pearl.  In order to do this party we need to ask for a donation of $8 per student. At the end of the Pearl Party each student gets to take home his or her own pearl. Please help us make this Pearl Party a success by getting your donation in by July 14th to a Grizzly teacher.

Our weekly announcement board to the right of the classroom door is always good to review.  This board will help with reminders of field trip locations and activites each week and also important updates that didn’t make the newsletter or calendars.

Our themes this month are:

  • Independence Day and Money Week
  • Sci-Fi/ Wizard Week
  • Alice’s Tea Party Week
  • Luau Week
  • Sports Week

Calendars of our activities for this month are available upon request.  We recommend getting a copy of the calendar to see important items needed during the month & to help families plan ahead.  Please ask a Grizzly teacher for a copy. We can email them as well upon request.


Thank you for being part of the Sunset Academy’s Summer Camp.

Ms. Leewitt, Ms. Steph, Mr. Rob, Ms. Rachel & Ms. Cindy
