Even though we are already missing some smiling faces this week, there was no shortage of energy and activity while staff worked with the children attending summer school, participated in professional development, and worked on cleaning, sorting, organizing and planning for what is sure to be a new and fantastic school year! 
A few classroom specific communications were sent over the last few days with news pertaining to a few changes to be aware of. You should have also received an invitation for Transparent Classroom this week. Please take a few minutes to set up your account and let us know if you need a "resend" or wish to add an email. 
The Vine will continue in shorter form and less frequency through mid July but watch for increased frequency prior to everyone returning in August. 
I hope you are enjoying the start to your summer in whatever form that takes. As always, thank you for your support of Sun Grove and for taking the time to stay informed.
Kind regards,
Terri
Thanks and Gratitude
To the dedicated teachers and assistants, both past and present, who have given so much of themselves to the entire Sun Grove community. It does not go unnoticed!
