Our Summer Camp is now underway. We had a very good week. Our Pre-K classes went to the Air & Space Museum and to Harpers Ferry. Our Summer Camp had their first swimming at Ida Lee and roller skating at Purcellville. Splash Days are underway for the rest of the school.
A special visitor we had this week on Thursday was Dean Alan, the Wizard of Reading as part of our Anchors Away theme. He read stories to the children and had a few tricks up his sleeve. The children found him very entertaining and loved his performance. We also has a librarian from the Rust Library read to the students on Tuesday.
We will also be having other fun activities later in the Summer as listed below:
- In July we have Eric Energy on Friday, July 11th, as part of our Backyards Science week.
- We will have Cody & BJ on July 24th part of our Splish, Splash Faith Blast week.
- For August we will have Reptiles Alive on Thursday, August 7th, during our Camp out with God! Week.
- We will also have Blue Sky Puppets on Thursday the 21st during Find Your Strength with God week.
