Happy July!  How unusual was the HOT weather we had at the end of June? Summer usually does not make an appearance until after the fourth of July here in the Pacific North West. We all survived, and I know it made me much more appreciative of our typical weather.

Summer camp thus far is looking a bit different than in the past years, due to Covid.  Last year we canceled our summer camp due to Covid.  The previous years we were busy going on outings a couple times per week.  Due to the restrictions still in place from the Department of Health and Washington State Department of Children, Youth and Families we are unable to participate in these outings at this time.  As frustrating as this is for many, the goal is to keep everybody safe.  That is also our priority here at Kids Way, safety first.  These first few weeks we always stay on campus to become familiar with our new students.  If no changes come from the authorities we will continue to stay on campus with walking trips to the nearby parks and the Centennial trail.  We will also try to have on site “guests” if we are not permitted to have field trips.  Our first “guest” is Thursday July 8th.  The Reptile Man will be bringing his critters to share with the kids.  In the past we have invited students not attending that particular day, and their families; but again because of Covid this is restricted.

Please remember your child needs to have: a lunch, a FILLED water bottle, sun screen (apply before coming in the morning) and a change of clothes DAILY.  We will fill the water bottles as needed through out the day and reapply sunscreen every 2 to 4 hours. It is very helpful when the children come with that first application of sunscreen and full water bottles.

Beginning July 14th we will be offering “pizza day” once per week.  Pizza day is the first 2 Wednesdays of the month and the last 2 Thursdays of the month. Cost is $7 per student which will be added to your account.  You must sign up on the sign up sheet each week if you want your child to participate. The dates are as follows: 7/14, 7/22, 7/29, 8/4, 8/11, 8/19, 8/26.

Happy Birthday:  Henry July 2nd, Marlie July 8th, Hailey July 25th.

Reminder:  If your child will be absent or you have a schedule change, please notify me in person, via text: 425-426-4688 or email  You may contact me through any of these ways for questions, comments or concerns.

Have a safe enjoyable July,
Ms. Arlene
