Greetings Sunshine Family,

The school year has ended and the summer is finally here. In anticipation of next week, we wanted to send out a friendly welcome. We hope you are all as excited as we are to start the Sunshine Summer Program on Monday, June 12th! Below are some important reminders and information for parents to read over. 

Thank you for your cooperation and see you all soon!

Which class should my child go to? 
Sunshine Summer Camp assigns the kids into different age groups according to the grade that he or she is entering in the fall. The roster for each class can be found here: Summer Week 1 Roster!

It is fun and reflects the characteristics of Silicon Valley.
