    Summer

    Each week we present a different theme with Friday being a fun culmination of everything we have learned during the week (i.e.: one week is alphabet zoo week- we will be learning all about animals & the alphabet, and on Friday we take an adventurous field trip to the Cleveland Zoo; beach week may culminate with a fun “water park” festival on church grounds!) You can sign up for as many or as few days that work for your family!
