It looks like we will start off with some wonderful weather next week! The first week of The Manor School’s summer program will be full of excitement. This summer you should see your child grow both socially and perhaps a bit 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.
From June 28th – July 16th the children focus on the beach, shells, fish and water play. If there is one thing we do well, its beach play. Shell, crafts, fish prints, sand casting, and a beach party highlight this unit.
From July 19th -August 6th 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.
Make sure to review our DROP OFF/PICK UP process before the first day. We are happy to have two options for our families; curbside drop off/pick up and we are now welcoming parents back into the building starting June 28th!
Send a backpack with your child each day that contains a full change of clothes (just in case) and any napping needs. Your child’s pencil box will stay at school to be used each day. It helps us if shoes, book bags and lunch boxes are clearly marked with your child’s name. Please realize that interactive 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.
For our 6- week campers, tuition is due the first week of camp. If you’d like to make an adjusted payment schedule, please contact us to do so. Make sure to include your child’s name and program on the check or you can choose to pay online.
For our children continuing from the school year through August 20th, your tuition is due monthly on the 1st just like the school year.
If you do not fit into either of these categories, please contact us to figure out your payment schedule if you have not done so already.
Dancing Little Stars:
During the summer we will offer Dancing Little Stars to our 3-rising Kindergarten students. Class will be held Monday mornings during the 6-week camp. You can register online through their website!
We will be closed July 5th for Independence Day!
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call. See you all next week for the start of Summer at BMS!
