Community Enrichment Activities
Ray of Hope Summer Day Program DATES: June 26th-August 4th, MONDAY-FRIDAY.  Applications at Silver Beach and Rebound (316 E. McLeod Rd, Suite 102).
Ray of Hope is a six-week program for children ages 5-12 with emotional, behavioral and/or economic challenges. Campers participate in arts & crafts, recreation, field trips and artistic enrichment. Ray of Hope strives to introduce empowering social skills and inspiring life principles through story and relationship. Ray of Hope is for kids who most need, yet seldom experience, such holistic, a well-staffed and fun summer. We will be hosting this program at Silver Beach Elementary. If you have any questions, please contact Rebound at 360-714-0700.

Reminders
• If you need to pick your child up early for any reason other than illness or injury, so as not to interrupt quality instruction time by the teacher, please allow yourself enough time to come to the classroom or other location where he/she is, and help him/her get packed up and ready to go.
