Just to clear up any questions or concerns. If your child is going to be in Kindergarten this fall 2020 then your child may attend the summer program we are offering starting June 15th. If your child is still in preschool or head start they will not be able to join our school program. Sorry for any confusion. There is NO morning daycare so the doors will open up after 7:50am each morning for your child to get their temperature checked and hand sanitize, then sent to their classroom for breakfast and start their daily routine. For morning questions please contact your child's teacher they had this Spring. The menu is attached below. Students are NOT to bring their own lunch. They will be eating in their classroom to practice social distancing and easier to sanitize areas. Thanks!

ATTENTION PARENTS! We have some exciting news. We are having a summer school program. Teachers will be getting ahold of you within the next few days.
There is NO cost for the 8:00-12:00 educational program. Also, this is VOLUNTARY. If you don't want to send your child(ren), keep them at home.
We will focus on new learning in Reading/Phonics, Math, and Writing.
We will provide supplies. They don't need to bring anything with them other than a water bottle.

There will be free breakfasts and lunches provided each day.

There will be transportation provided each morning at the food sites. There will also be transportation provided each day leaving at 12:00 back to the food sites. For example, students will be picked up at the community building in Tingley ONLY. There will be no bus routes to individual houses.

If you are planning on your child attending summer school, please let the teacher know when they call you if they will be attending the Junior Raider Activity Program from 12:00-5:00pm each day. The cost is $50 per week per child. Parents are responsible for picking up their child(ren) after the Junior Raider Program by 5pm.
There will be NO morning Jr. Raider program. Students will arrive at 8:00am for breakfast and go to classrooms. I am attaching the NEW forms. You may print off and mail to school 607 East Jefferson Street, Mount Ayr, Ia 50854
You can send the first week's payment with your paperwork or give money to me each Monday at the beginning of each week. I put this together quickly so the day's activities may change if more things open up and become available. :)

Happy to announce this years summer theme will be. Welcome to the circus 🎪
So far I have booked the lions club swing set, found plenty of fun crafts and we will be having the bounce house and obstacle course again. Lots of fun activities planned for this summer.

****Butter Braid forms will be sent home soon****
Our goal is for each student to sell 10. This is our one big fundraiser of the year. Everything that we earn goes directly into the program for the students by booking fun activities and getting supplies. Please help out if you can. These braids are wonderful around Easter time for when family comes or making for a quick breakfast.
Have a great weekend!

Flag Football. What is more convenient for parents for practices in September?
Practice 2 times a week for 3 weeks from 5:00pm-6:15pm?
Practice for 3 Saturdays in September from 8:30-10am?

The goal is to build up the program and wondering what would get more participation? Either way, we would still play on the high school football field for games on the last practice. This is for 2nd and 3rd graders.
Thanks!

Today at Summer school Kindergarten is working on a STEM activity and planting watermelons. Exploring how a watermelon tastes, feels, and smells before we plant our very own. Enjoy the picture and video below. Next we had a great group of community members come and give very informative information about pool safety, nutrition, first aide safety, types of exercises and stretches to use over the summer.
