Greetings Sunshine Family,

This past week was awesome! Please, see our Field Day Video here - Sunshine Field Day 2017 - and team pictures below! 

Now we are moving onto our last week of our Summer Program. The theme will be Nature! Students will explore our Mother Earth and discover more about our wonderful planet! Below you will find some other reminders and information to help your week go by smoothly! Thank you for your cooperation and staying updated with the Sunshine Newsletter!



*Sunshine School Spirit Days*
Sunshine will have a different Spirit Day each Friday of Summer! We encourage students to get festive this summer with their friends and teachers. Students can dress up according to the theme each Friday. 

  • Twin Day on Friday, August 4th
    Choose a friend (or a teacher!) to twin with on your last day in our summer program!
                                                            Field Trip Information


For Week 8, we have updated the field trip to an On-Site Carnival for our school. Our Week 8 field trip will not be to Alum Rock Park, due to some safety concerns in the park. The carnival will be on Friday, August 4th from 3:00 - 6:00 PM. We will have a bounce house, an ice cream fundraiser, juice stand, game booths, and we will be sharing our summer projects in our classrooms! We also invite all summer students (even if not enrolled in Week 8) to come have fun and enjoy some treats provided by the school on the last day of our summer program. Parents are welcome! 

  • For this day, each class will have a potluck during their lunchtime. Instead of bringing a bag lunch, we would like parents bring their child's favorite food or dish to share with their friends and classmates during lunch. Please, also bring a label with the ingredients of the dish that you are sharing (for allergy purposes).
