Summer Program
A wonderful year is coming to an end. We are glad to be able to share with you that as of this week we estimate that
10-12 students are returning. As you make your plans for next year you can be assured of continuity in the
Elementary classroom with a core of returning students and Ms. Green with a support teacher in 2017-18. The
number is likely to grow, but this is timely good news that may affect your plans of several families waiting for this
confirmation.
Elementary
Pincushion is looking forward to a great Summer Program! We would
love having more of our fantastic Pincushion students join us for a
summer of fun! Our Summer Program is offered for 10 weeks from
June 19th – August 18th and August 28th – September 1st.
Children can join us for 1 week to 10 weeks of the summer and stay
from 8:30-5:30. Please contact the office if you have any
questions.

into his work.

As we conclude the year, students are doing individual projects and taking part in workshops including Research
Projects; Novel Reading; Journal Writing; Songwriting; Writer’s Workshop; and Songwriting. As part of the
songwriting workshop, a group of students including Molly, Emily, Martina, Ellis, Rhea and Ishanvi brainstormed a list
of special experiences they had with friends that became the verses of an original (and catchy) song called “One
More Friend,” a recording the class made yesterday in Morning Meeting is attached along with the lyrics.
