Many Options for Busy Families
Classes are available for students in preschool as well as adults and every age level in between! Pine Point’s Evergreen program includes an after school program that is open to the public and provides a variety of engaging electives offered Monday through Friday from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. Taught by talented Pine Point teachers and other experienced professionals the classes are designed to encourage and enrich students’ various interests, foster an appreciation of lifelong learning, and complement our rigorous academic program.
Families can choose recurring weekday enrollment or choose individual classes of interest. It is also possible to pair an elective with a late afternoon (4:30 - 5:30 p.m.) session of Learning Lab or Creative Play to create coverage from dismissal through 5:30 p.m. each weekday.
The learning doesn't stop at dismissal time! At the core of Evergreen's Spring Term schedule is our weekday, afternoon classes for students in preschool through 9th grade. The term begins on Monday, March 26 and concludes on Wednesday, June 6, 2018. Course electives will begin the week of March 26 and conclude on June 1.
Learning Lab will be offered in the Fall, Winter, and Spring Monday-Friday from 3:30-5:30 p.m. for students in grades 2-9. Students can enroll for one hour or the entire 2-hour session. Pine Point teachers will provide homework support, instructional assistance, or help with a particular project.
The Evergreen Learning Lab augments the classroom experience. Pine Point faculty will be on hand to provide individualized and small group support for students to:
- Organize and plan for independent work
- Discuss projects
- Research and explore
- Study and complete assignments
- Ask questions
Students will develop a stronger sense of how to use independent learning time effectively, have an opportunity to work collaboratively with peers on projects, and hone self-advocacy skills. We recognize the desire of parents to create balance for their families. Students who take advantage of this opportunity at school may be able to make regular progress on projects and get much or all of their independent work done before heading home for the evening. Having more time to reconnect as a family at the end of the day is good for everyone, and the Learning Lab can help!
Creative Play is the perfect opportunity for friends to meet after school! Students in grades 2-5 get to play with their classmates as well as those in different grades in a safe, supervised environment. Lead by Pine Point’s early childhood teachers, Creative Play provides and supervision while allowing students the freedom of choice that fosters creative explorations.
Students in preschool, kindergarten and 1st grade can experience a fun afternoon with the teachers students love from our early childhood program.
