Grizzly Bears January 2018 Newsletter

HAPPY NEW YEAR Grizzly Parents & Families,

Welcome to 2018!! We are starting the new year strong filling it with new adventures & learning experiences for our students.

December we started to feel the real chill of winter. We’d like to continue to encourage & thank our students for bringing winter coats, mittens, boots & hats to protect themselves from the frigid temperatures during the day. We do like to get the students outside if daylight & weather permits.

We will start this year’s themes with fun-filled experiments; with STEM projects as shown on the classroom calendar, every week.

The themes for this month are:

  • Snow & Ice: Winter Fun
  • Winter Animals & Hibernation
  • Martin Luther King Jr. & Art Studio (Different Methods of Art)
  • Under the Sea
  • Groundhog Day

January has several dates to be aware of for our students.

  • 1/1 Sunset Academy CLOSED for New Year’s Day
  • 1/2 SVVSD is in session
  • 1/2 No School – Flagstaff & TPCA
  • 1/12 No School – Flagstaff & SVVSD
  • 1/15 No School – Flagstaff, SVVSD, Sunset Private Kindergarten & TPCA

As these days get closer we will post the dates outside the Grizzly room on the Theme Board. Please make sure you have afternoon snacks & lunches packed for your kiddo on “No School” days. A copy of the lunch & snack guidelines is available upon request.


We wish your family only the best this year & thank you for being part of our Sunset Academy family.
