Read Across America Week

Dr. Seuss’s Birthday is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2nd. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate in activities that foster a love of literature by observing, “Read Across America Week!”

A heartfelt thank you to all of our parents who took the time to come in and read to the children in their classrooms last week. We couldn’t be more grateful for your participation!

    

Health and Safety Announcment

Dear Fair Acres families,

In light of the growing public health concern about Coronavirus, we would like to share the following information with you:

Fair Acres is following recommendations from the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control and our local Health Officials. Our ownership and staff meet regularly to discuss and implement any updates on this situation. We can assure you that your child’s health and safety is our #1 concern and we take that responsibility very seriously.

Fair Acres continues to do our part by diligently cleaning our school on a regular and efficient basis. We have recently invested in the state-of-the-art Protexus 360° sanitizing & disinfectant system (see video below).

Along with promoting good hygiene to our students at school (i.e. washing hands thoroughly and regularly, covering mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing and keeping hands away from your face), we encourage all parents to do the same at home. We also ask that you keep your children at home if they are not feeling well to minimize the spread of illnesses to others.

Thank you and rest assured that we always have your child’s best interest at heart!

Stay Healthy,

Curt & Jodi Larson

2020 Summer Camp Registration is Open!

Our summer camp programming is second to none!

Fair Acres Country Day Camp runs for eight weeks, through the months of July and August. Camp opens at 7:30 am, Monday through Friday, with the camp program beginning at 9:00 am. The camp program ends at 3:30 pm and extended care is available until 5:00 pm. Campers range in age from 4-11 years and are grouped according to their age. Camp runs in two week sessions with most campers choosing multiple sessions throughout the summer. We also offer a one-week Pre-Camp session at the end of June.

Fair Acres Summer Camp is all about fun! Throughout the day, campers participate in a wide range of activities which include:

  • Field Games
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Swim Lessons and Free Swim
  • Playground Play
  • Court Sports (tennis, basketball, hockey, etc.)
  • “Specialty Days”
  • Water Activities
  • Nature Exploration
  • …and more!

Good ol’ camp fun is the main theme throughout the summer with all of our activities and programming. Campers will rotate from one planned activity to the next with their counselors. All activities are planned for the week by the lead counselors and reviewed by the camp director to ensure quality programming. Campers pack a lunch and drink daily as well as a bathing suit and towel. Fair Acres provides plenty of water breaks during the camp day and requires that all campers have sneakers to ensure their safety during daily activities.

Fair Acres encourages parents to visit camp and experience the same enjoyment and excitement that campers get. Your child will make lasting friendships, learn all about what it is to be a camper and most of all… they will look forward to coming back the next day!

Vacation Camp Highlights

Our 2020 February Vacation Camp was full of new and exciting themes and activities!

Here are a few of the highlights:

“Pizza Party” and “Bake it and Make it” – The children learned how to make English muffin pizzas, banana muffins and smoothies. Yum!

“Nature Day” – Taking advantage of the mild weather and our picturesque surroundings, the children embarked on a nature scavenger hunt in the woods to collect pine cones, with which they made their very own bird feeders!

“PJ Party” –  The children ended the week with a pajama party and ice cream sundae party!

       

We also held a raffle for a free week of summer camp! The lucky winner was Jackson Meagher from the Older 3’s classroom, pictured below with his mother. Congratulations, Jackson!
