A Note From Our Principal
Our teachers and camp counselors have been busy planning special activities to make this summer fun and memorable for our students. Please keep an eye out for communications about activities and events. As always, we are here with any questions or concerns you may have. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Links 2 Home App
We know that summer is a busy time for our families, and want to communicate school happenings as clearly as possible to ensure that no one is left out. As a reminder, daily reports are sent via email each day, but our Links 2 Home app keeps all school communications in one place and is always accessible. The app also allows to you communicate absences to your child’s teacher, leave drop-off notes, and read teacher and administrative notes in detail. If you’re not a current app user, we encourage you to visit the Apple App Store or Google Play Store to download the app today. You will need to login with the email address you use for Alma. Please let us know if you have issues logging into Links 2 Home!
Please let us know in advance if you are planning on using your vacation credit to ensure that your account is not charged incorrectly. Thank you!
Summer Cubby Clean-ups
Our students love spending time outdoors and we want to make sure we take ample advantage of the summer weather. If your child is in the Toddler classroom and up, please make sure they have the following items in their cubby at all times:
- Labeled bottle of lotion sunscreen
- Summer appropriate change of clothes
Love Our School? Review Us!
In today’s connected world, many families turn to online reviews to learn more about the reputation of schools. Just a reminder that you can find our school on Facebook, Google, Yelp and other online directories. We’d love more families like yours, so please consider spreading the word about our school.
We have several water play days planned for our students this summer and can’t wait for your child to participate! Children should come to school in their swimsuit (with swim diaper where applicable) and with a towel and a change of dry clothes. On splash day, please apply sunscreen to your child before you drop them off.

Register Your Child for a Summer They’ll Never Forget
“I’m bored” is the last thing that you want to hear your child say this summer. Camp is a wonderful option to keep your child engaged and learning, and we are here to help. Our camp programs provide children opportunities to explore, discover, make new friends and learn new skills. It all starts with our outstanding counselors, whose talent, creativity and leadership set the tone for an unforgettable summer. This year, we are offering families even more options than ever before.
As a continuation of our Links to Learning curriculum, our summer camp offers a fun-filled program for children ages 1 to 4. Each week, preschoolers jump into action, participating in exciting activities and special events. Activity blocks, including Clay Play, Splash Zone and Food Factory Fun, are sprinkled throughout each week, giving campers variety in their camp day.
Give your child a jump-start to kindergarten by enrolling in our new Kindergarten Enrichment program. We work on sharpening literacy and math skills, while also providing opportunities for your child to practice kindergarten etiquette through authentic play and collaborative learning. Students engage in inquiry-based, hands-on activities that build upon foundational skills, such as science and engineering.
Our specialty camps are packed with hands-on activities that offer experiences for campers to discover new skills and talents, while promoting self-esteem and independence. Whatever your child’s interests are, we have fun activities for them to try, including karate, dance, soccer and swimming. Programs vary by location.
Many of our preschools also offer school-age camp for students in kindergarten through 5th grade. We provide a safe environment for older children to explore science and nature, become involved in creative and performing arts, and participate in sports and games. Like our preschool camp, we sprinkle the weeks with activity blocks to add variety in the camp day.
