SNACKS and LUNCH
Parents are asked to provide their children with a healthy, nutritious morning snack and lunch. Candy, gum, and sugary drinks are not permitted in the Early Childhood or Grades. We strongly recommend water rather than juice. Students are also encouraged to bring water bottles. Also, a late-afternoon snack will be provided for those students who are in aftercare.

EXTRA THINGS/CLOTHING TO BRING:
A few reminders: we will be having water play, so students should bring their bathing suits and also a towel. Also, it would be a good idea if they wear older clothing because some things might stain them or they could bring an extra set of old clothes to change into for messy activities if they prefer.  They may also bring an apron if they’d like. Please make sure all extra clothing, swimsuits, water bottles and towels are labeled with your child’s name.

We will be doing tie-dye on some days. We will provide one tee shirt for them to tie-dye. If your child would like to tie-dye his/her own tee shirt or other clothing (natural fabric with natural thread works best) or a pillowcase or napkin, he/she may bring it in the first day or so (with name on label).  

Please keep all electronic devices and toys at home. Cell phone use by children is prohibited at the Niu Valley campus. Children who must carry cell phones are required to turn them off while on campus and keep them in their backpacks.
