Discoveries

by Mrs. Stacy Carela:

Welcome! Here’s helpful information for our first week!

  • “DE Dismissal Sign”-Attached to the welcome letter, each family will receive a neon dismissal sign.  These signs will be placed on the passenger side dashboard of the cars during dismissal.  This will expedite pick-up and help identify Discoveries Campers versus Adventures.  If you would like to include the children’s names on the signs, you can write their names somewhere on the front of the card.
  • Water-Play will be held on Wednesday, June 29, 2016
  • On Water Play days, send children already dressed in their bathing suits and covered with sun block.
  • Send a change of dry clothes for them to change into afterward.

    • First week we will be familiarizing the campers about the elements of Art and what it means to be an Artist.
    • We will start to sharpen our eyes by practicing shapes and coloring. We will focus on the circle. And look at how other artists use them in their work.
    • We will culminate the week discussing and drawing the Olympic rings.
