Sonshine Ark Focus

November

This is a very busy but very awesome time of the year. This month we turn our thoughts to the Thanksgiving season and what we have to be thankful for. There are so many things that happen and people who we meet daily that help shape our lives and the lives of the families. One way we show our appreciation is to host a Thanksgiving Dinner in honor of our family and friends for all they mean to us and for all the things we have. This year our 12th annual Parent and Grandparent Thanksgiving Dinner will be on November 22nd. We greatly appreciate the Ladies of First Lutheran who will help serve this luncheon. As we mentioned last month, we are preparing to have our annual “No Show Ball”. The monies raised from this fund raiser will go toward the down payment of a new van and to help fund playground improvement of fall zone materials. If you would like to donate a basket for our drawing, we would greatly appreciate it. Tickets will go on sale Oct. 28th for the drawing to be held at the Thanksgiving Dinner, Nov. 22nd. God has truly blessed us, and we do thank you so much for giving of your time, possessions, money, prayers, and words of encouragement. It is through your partnership that the children who attend Sonshine Ark can grow and learn as we provide them a safe environment and the opportunity to learn about the love of Jesus.

Academics

Language Skills

On a daily basis the Sonshine Ark sees most of our students. During the early years of a child’s life, the child learns the most. It has become our priority to make sure that all of our students are given the equal opportunity to learn language skills especially in our younger classes. Students are not only exposed to English, they are also exposed to some Spanish. 

 

Social Skills​

Providing a healthy social environment for our students is important to us. We find that children who grow up in healthy social environments are more likely to be successful members of the community. It is one of our top priorities to make sure that our students are given an environment where they can develop their social skills as well as communication skills.
