The Summer Discovery Program at PHMS is designed to give children new and exciting experiences while being active and having fun!
We provide children with exciting learning opportunities in a stimulating environment. Pincushion Hill’s Summer Discovery Program is a dynamic, hands-on program designed for children entering preschool through grade five. Our program provides students with a nurturing atmosphere that encourages exploration, creativity, and lasting connections among the children.
Each day is filled with activities, crafts, games, and exciting academics as well as time to relax and recharge. Children will be spending beautiful summer mornings in our thriving vegetable and flower gardens where they will be observing and learning about the planting, growth, care, and harvesting of our diverse variety of fruits and vegetables. Summer students will have special classes in dance, cooking, music, games, and science. With a different theme every week, we learn more about our world and continue our education.
Space Exploration and Life Sciences
Introduction – The 9 week summer program will provide a snap shot of the vastness of our universe. The children will explore, study, and have fun with the journey. The activities will include the study of “The Sun’s Family”, “Astronomy”, “Black Holes”, “Galaxies”, and “Exploring Space”. Mrs. Nicole Lovell will be offering S.T.E.M. classes in the new Maker Space Classroom this summer.
Maker Space Classroom
We are excited to announce that the Maker Space classroom will be in operation this summer. This hands-on curriculum will provide creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build, and invent as they engage in the STEM work = Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. They can sprinkle it with their imagination for exploration. This classroom layout will provide a wide range of activities, cardboard construction, and arts and crafts. Stay tuned ~
