2014 Information for Parents
2014 SummerQuest is in full swing! Our goal is to provide children with an enriching summer experience — ripe with discovery, creativity and abundant fun both indoors and outdoors. Below is a calendar of events and a list of useful links for parents. Please feel free to contact your child’s conference teacher with any questions. I look forward to a memorable summer together! — Elizabeth Clarke, Director of Summer Programs

Swimming at the YWCA – Children enrolled in our Primary and Elementary programs swim at the YWCA, a continuing tradition of swimming education with the most up-to-date teaching and learning systems utilizing the American Red Cross Aquatics Program. Elementary students swim once a week on Tuesdays from 10:45-11:45 AM. On Tuesdays, Elementary students should wear their bathing suits in to school under their clothing, and bring a change of clothing and a towel. Children will change out of their bathing suits once they return to school. Primary children swim on Mondays and Fridays from 1:00-2:00 PM. On Mondays and Fridays, Primary children should bring a swim bag to school containing a bathing suit, water shoes (water shoes should be easily put on the child’s foot when wet, such as flip-flops or crocs) and a towel. Children will change at school before departing for the YWCA.
Pizza Lunches – Children enrolled in our Toddler, Primary and Elementary programs who stay for lunch will have pizza lunches served on WEDNESDAYS throughout the summer. There is no additional cost to families for these pizza lunches. On these days, pizza lunches will be served with water to drink. Feel free to send in an additional side or drink for your child, if they prefer something in addition to pizza. If your child has any allergies, please have them bring their own lunch on these days.
Field Trips - Over the Summer, Primary will take one field trip and Elementary will take several. You will receive details about each field trip, as well as an online permission form, via email approximately one week before each trip. Details about each trip can be found on the Summer calendar above.
