Beach Manor Summer Newsletter

It looks like we will start off with a rather warm and humid beginning.  The Manor School’s summer program will be full of excitement!  This summer you should see your child grow both socially and academically.  Our Summer program focuses on the ocean, its inhabitants, and its environment.  The children study fish, shells, sea birds, marine mammals, and the beach.  Art, crafts, and papers will reflect this emphasis as we help develop your child’s fine and gross motor skills, visual and auditory memory, and letter and number recognition.  Phonics, reading, and math will be gently emphasized at all levels.

For the first half of summer the children focus on the turtles, beach, shells, and fish. If there is one thing we do well, its beach play. Shell, crafts, fish prints, sand casting, and a beach party highlight this unit.

Next, we will take a Caribbean cruise and learn all about pirates. They may have terrorized our forefathers, but today they give a thrill to our lives with special stories and projects! Undersea studies and treasure hunts share our attention with island fun.

Send a backpack with your child each day that contains a full change of clothes and any napping needs.  It helps us if shoes, book bags and lunch boxes are clearly marked with your child’s name. Please realize that gross motor play is emphasized as well as academics so dress your child appropriately from head to toe.  Make sure to apply sunscreen to your child before coming to school.  We can re-apply mid-day for those kids that stay after lunch as long as a parent has signed a sunscreen permission slip.

We will be closed July 3rd for the holiday!
