Friday, September 2, 2016 – The first day of the 2016/2017 school year is finally here. Back to school is a time when students meet up with friends to share stories of how they spent their summer. Looking back, the City of Sunny Isles Beach had a very successful season of summer programs that were offered to the young residents of our City.
SIB Summer Camp is very popular, mostly for the unique and fun activities enjoyed by the kids. There were field trips, arts and crafts sessions and even a sports camp, which included kickball, soccer and cheer and dance. The Specialty Day Camp is for those students who prefer to concentrate on a specific activity they are passionate about. There is a Fine Art Camp, the Musical Theatre Camp and a Lego Robotics Camp where students get to design, build and program their own robots.
To add to the summer fun, the City sponsored Summer Splash 2016, featuring water slides and games. In fact, if you visit our online photo gallery, you will find tons of pictures of our young residents participating in the many programs we offer. You might even see a familiar face in those photos!
We hope you enjoyed your summer and we wish all our students a happy, safe school year.
