Summer at Coastal Day School

This week is our last week of summer programs here at CDS. While I’m sad that the pool days and laser tag has come to an end, I am super excited for our preschool and kindergarten programs to start! We are finishing up our expansion project and our teachers have started planning and setting up classrooms. As some of you already know, I absolutely LOVE this time of year!!!! As excited as I am about the school year starting, I have to admit that this was one of my very favorite summers. Here is a short recap of our summer and all the fun (and work) we had!!

Summer Camp
Miss Veronnica and Miss Michelle led the way with our seven weeks of summer camp, each week a different theme. We had so much fun with Aloha Summer, Under the Sea, Summer Olympics, Mad Science, What’s Cooking, Games Galore, and lastly, Peace Out. We spent our days playing fun games, going on exciting field trips, and building awesome friendships! Here are some pictures of our days!!


Summer Preschool
Miss Kalyn planned a summer full of fun activities for our littlest campers. They enjoyed their theme weeks as well. They had fun with Down on the Farm, Under the Big Top, Princesses and Pirates, Bugs and Butterflies, Blast into Space, Beach Bums, and lastly, Deep in the Jungle. Our students had so much fun, they didn't even realize they were learning!!

Our Expansion Project
We are finishing up our new side of the building and we’re VERY excited to reveal the new space! The new space will house our library, three year old classroom, our two-day and three-day, four year old classroom, and a teacher lounge/meeting space. We are loving how things are turning out and can’t wait to have students occupying the space!! Here are a few pictures of our progress and some before and afters.

Now you see it...

...now you don't!
This is the wall that separated our old space from the new space. The picture was taken in our future library.
The wall is gone!!

We are in love with our new library!!

New Teachers
Since last school year ended, we have added a few smiling faces to our amazing staff! Miss Autumn will be joining our team as the five-day, four year old teacher and Miss Natalie will officially start as the two-day and three-day, four year old teacher. Miss Stephanie will be helping out in our Mommy’s Morning Out Program and Miss Melissa will be helping out in the two year old class. Miss Susan will be teaching our Bible Buddies program, and our last new staff member is Miss Jodi who will be assisting in the office. Here is a picture of our ladies night at the Little Dipper.
