Getting Ready for September Classes to Start

Daylight has spent the August summer break preparing for September classes. Students are helping their family bring in the harvest, spending time playing soccer, and hanging out with friends.

At Daylight, we are hard at work cleaning desks and organizing lessons. The 1st – 3rd grade classrooms are under construction to get them ready for school to start in September.

Sarah is excited about studying in the new 3rd grade classroom. Sarah is pretty amazing. She is the goalkeeper in her class’s soccer games. She wants to be an artist, and her favorite subject is math. She drew a sketch of the new classroom!
