Greetings USD 353 Families!
We are very excited to share with you an opportunity for your children and your family to experience over 100 Kansas attractions, educational activities, and fun events at no cost from Friday, May 26th through Sunday, August 13th. “Sunflower Summer” is in its third year and is a program that was developed by the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) for families to have fun and exciting educational experiences together in as many of the participating Kansas attractions and locations as possible during the summer.
Please visit http://sunflowersummer.org/ frequently to learn more about this year’s expanded programming options and review the “Participating Locations” section of the page. Attractions, activities, and events from across Kansas include zoos, museums, historic landmarks, libraries, day camps, outdoor events, and more.
The updated App for iPhone and Android will be available on Friday, May 26, 2023, to download to your phone or tablet from Apple App Store or Google Play App Store. Anyone who kept the app on their device from last summer does not need to download it again; instead, they will receive an electronic notice to simply update their app to the 2023 version at that time. An adult will need to register their family members and include their county and school district. Then, families may begin planning their summer fun and acquiring free venue tickets as needed using the app and all of its features!
