Sundancer Times

May 2022

Sundancer Families,


Alas, we have reached our final Sundancer Times for the year. It 's hard to believe the twists and turns we have been through this year (from weekly COVID testing to quarantines). But here we all are on the other side, stronger for having gone through it all. I often times tell the kids that they have been through arguably the toughest times we will see in a lifetime, and their resilience and fortitude are astounding! Thank YOU, parents, for understanding the difficult situations we have been navigating (with no play book to guide us) and for working with our faculty and staff like a true TEAM to get these precious kids through. After all, we're all in it for kids #HeartAndSol and kids deserve it!

Teacher Appreciation Week May 2-6

Our teachers have worked tirelessly to make kids feel physically and emotionally safe through some pretty choppy waters, all while meeting their academic needs and helping them excel. While no teacher expects a gift, a sincere thank you through a note or hug from your child will fuel any teacher's heart! Thank you for supporting the backbone of our campus!

Help Us Celebrate our Teachers and Staff!
