SUN Community School Resources

Summer Activity Kits

Our DDSD SUN teams are making large summer activity kits that families can do at home this summer. These kits will have about 6 hour worth of activities in them. The kits will come in a large box and need to be picked up from your child’s school towards the end of July. Staff will reach out to families in mid-July to notify when kits are ready.

Message from Sophie

Hello VP families,

I hope you are well as we get closer to summer!  I wanted to let you know that I will be leaving my role as SUN Site Manager at Ventura Park.  I have taken a job working with Oregon Department of Education. It has been an honor to work with the students, families and staff at VP and I will cherish my time here always.
All my best to you and your family,
