Is it really August already? It feels like this summer has come and gone – but man, has it been a good one! It’s not quite over yet, but we are still starting to look back at all the wonderful times we’ve had. On behalf of the entire staff, I do want to take a moment to say thank you for all of your support in making Summer Camp 2016 so great. Our summer success would not be possible without your assistance in getting your child adequately prepared for each day of excitement, and we thank you for that time. I hope that your child has had as much fun with us as we’ve had with them!
With a new school year right around the corner, please remember to contact us if your child’s schedule will be changing in September. This includes increasing the number of days of attendance and/or changing the days in which he/she attends. Early notice of these changes will help us to ensure accurate counts and proper staffing in each classroom for the fall season.
