  • Typical Day

    The day starts with a flag ceremony each and every morning! Each unit takes turns either with an opening or closing. Sing the announcement song, hear what fun activities are happening, and then it's off to your units to start planning your week. You could go to sports and games, arts and crafts, swimming, hiking, learn new songs, start planning your late-night meal, or just start making new friends.
