Sunflower Summer program gives students chance to learn while visiting attractions Families can download app to begin educational adventures across Kansas A new program will help children stay engaged in learning throughout the summer months while spending quality time with family members and friends touring some of Kansas’ greatest attractions – all for free. The Sunflower Summer program, which is being funded by federal COVID-19 money to offer summer enrichment activities for Kansas students, is a collaboration between the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE), Kansas Department of Commerce, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, Kansas Children’s Cabinet and Trust Fund, KU Center for Public Partnerships and Research, and Greenbush Education Service Center. “This is a win-win for Kansas students and Kansas attractions,” said Commissioner of Education Dr. Randy Watson. “The Sunflower Summer program can help enrich summer learning and is an excellent opportunity for students and families to go on educational adventures together while supporting nearly 70 Kansas attractions.” Adults can visit sunflowersummer.org to download the Sunflower Summer mobile app to their phone or tablet device. The app is currently available in the Apple App Store. However, the app isn’t available yet in Google Play because of delays in the Google review process. Android users can still utilize the program by filling out a paper form upon arrival at venues. Once Google accepts the app into the Play Store, KSDE will send out a notification. An adult will need to register their family members and include their county and school district. There are nearly 70 attractions to choose from across the state, including zoos, museums, historic landmarks, libraries and outdoor locations. Within the Sunflower Summer app is a passport that allows participants to track where they have visited on their adventures. Once a location has been selected, tickets can be claimed within the app. When attendees are ready to enter, the ticket can be activated and presented to the ticket taker. Child care facilities also can access and use the app for field trips. However, only one ticket per child and adult can be redeemed at each location. More information and a frequently-asked-questions section are available at www.sunflowersummer.org. The Sunflower Summer program runs through Aug. 15. Funding for this program is limited, and tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis.

The first graders in Mrs. Bannister’s class have participated in a month long Valentine exchange all across the country. Teachers from across the country signed up their class up to participate in a Valentine letter exchange. Grades Pre-K to 6th could participate. Each class was to make enough Valentines for the number of schools in their group and then send a letter with the Valentine explaining our school and interesting things to do near our location or what made our area unique. The students created their Valentines, helped write the letter, and learned how to mail a letter with our United States Postal Service. The students anxiously waited for the first letter to arrive and it came from Long Island, New York! Throughout the month of February we received 20 letters from 20 different states, one even came from Canada! Each time a letter came in, students colored in the state on their map. This led to great conversations about where states are located in our country and the things to do near their area. Several of the students have created a list of places they want to visit now. We also met two of our schools on Zoom. On these calls the students had to give clues to the other school for them to guess what state we live in. Once both states were guessed the students were able to visit with each other.

Reminders from your School Nurses: Please keep your student home if he/she is ill with two or more symptoms of COVID-19 (headache, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, cough, short of breath, extreme fatigue, chills/shivering/shaking/sweating, new loss of smell/taste, or fever). This is for the health and safety of all students and staff and to help us be in school for as long as we can. We do realize allergy and harvest seasons are upon us and will do our best, however a doctor’s note may be required as proof of alternate diagnosis. If your student is sent home with two or more symptoms, they are not tested for COVID, and do not have an alternate diagnosis (influenza, strep throat, etc.), the student must remain out of school and all activities for ten days from symptom onset. These are the guidelines the state of Kansas has set forth for schools to follow as we return to in-person learning. Thank you for your cooperation, Erin Winger and Whitney McCauley
