Each classroom has designated splash days. Please ask your child’s teacher when your child has splash days. Items needed for splash day:

  • Swim suit/trunks or extra change of clothing – it is helpful to have your child come dressed with their suit/trunks on with their school clothing over it, so that they just have to remove the items when they are ready to begin. 
  • Swim shoes or flip flops
  • Towel


SUNSCREEN: Your child should come to school with sunscreen already applied. We will reapply sunscreen in the afternoon if we have the permission form on file and have been provided sunscreen for your child.

SUMMER ACADEMICS: During the summer, all classrooms will review what they have learned throughout the year in circle time daily. They will also have at least one structured, planned activity which may include arts and crafts, science exploration, cooking activities, and other fun activities. 

CURRICULUM FEES DUE: Students that will remain for the 2016-2017 school year must pay the $50.00 curriculum fee by 8/8/16. This should be paid with cash or money order.
