Grizzly Bears August 2017 Newsletter

We’re sad to see our amazing summer camp coming to an end along with having to say goodbye to friends as they head off to school.  We are however, excited to see many of you and your children have chosen to continue with us in our Before and After school program.

Important Dates:

Aug. 10th Meet the Teachers night @6 PM

Aug. 14th Last day of Sunset Summer Camp

Aug. 15th SVVSD, Twin Peaks & Sunset Academy’s Private Kindergarten First day of school.

Aug. 15th Flagstaff, first day with noon Early Release (No School Kindergarten)

Aug 16th -18th Flagstaff, Kindergarten Noon Early Release

Just because summer is winding down for the students doesn’t mean the fun has to end. We still have several adventurous field trips planned & STEM activities in the classroom.  This month we will learn how to make a foosball table in a shoe box & create challenge courses to run through.  Then we transition into the Before and After school lessons.

Our Themes for the remainder of Summer Camp are:

  • Sports Week
  • Sunset on Summer

We then Transition into our Before & After School Calendars with the Themes:

  • Back To School
  • All About Me
  • Apples

Our announcement board to the right of the classroom door gives us more room for quick reminders of field trips and activities for the last 2 weeks of Summer Camp.  It is also the place to find important updates that didn’t make the newsletter or monthly calendar. Please note, as school starts our themes and announcements move to the left of the door to make space for our Private Kindergarten announcements.

Calendars of our activities for this month are available upon request.  There will be 2 calendars this month; one calendar for the remaining summer activities & one for the before & after school activities. We recommend getting a copy of the calendar for home reference of important items needed during the month.

Thank you for joining in the fun at Sunset Academy.
