A Note From Our Principal
For the past few months our teachers and camp counselors have been busy planning special activities to make this summer fun and memorable. This month marks the beginning of our Connect to Summer curriculum enhancement camp for our preschoolers, and our Summer of Discovery full-time camp program for our school-agers. These programs feature activities that support learning outcomes aligning with your child’s developmental level. Please keep an eye out for special communications about activities and events, and about how you can support your child’s learning at home. 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 Usage
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. 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. For our school-age families, using the Links 2 Home app is absolutely essential to ensuring you’re always in the know about field trips and other camp news.
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-up
Our students love spending time outdoors and we want to make sure we take ample advantage of the summer weather before it gets too hot. 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 sunscreen. If you send the aerosol kind, please send an additional cream version for your child’s face.
- Reusable water bottle with your child’s name on it
- Summer appropriate change of clothes
We have several water play days planned for our students this summer and can’t wait for your child to participate! On splash days we provide small wading pools, sprinklers, water toys, and other water related obstacles or challenges. 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. Our currently scheduled splash days are:
- June 7th
- June 14th
- June 21st
- June 28th
- July 5th
- July 12th
- July 19th
- July 26th
- August 2nd
- August 9th
Summer of Discovery School Age Camp
We officially kick off our school-age camp on June 3rd and could not be more excited to spend the summer with our campers! Each school-age parent should have received a copy of our summer calendar listing all field trips and approximate departure and arrival times. Changes will be communicated through Links 2 Home.
Campers should arrive at school with sunscreen already applied. Campers should have a reusable water bottle at camp each day. Closed toed, comfortable shoes are required for all field trips except those involving water.
For more info on our camp, please check out our brochure and calendar.
Connect to Summer Preschool Camp
Just because it is summer doesn’t mean that our Links to Learning Education ends for our preschool students, but we have added a lot of fun activities for them to add into their busy days. We have a preschool camp in store just for them! In addition, we have a Kindergarten Kick-Off designed for our students ready to head off to Kindergarten in August.
