This winter we have experiences after school for preschool through grade 9 that will keep your students active, engaged, and connected as they learn and practice new skills.
Learning lab, Creative Play, and music lessons begin November 12 and run through March 5, and courses run November 18 - February 28 or as noted.
Evergreen classes and music lessons are open to the community. Pine Point students enrolled in a 3:30 p.m. Evergreen class will go directly to the Evergreen rooms at dismissal, allowing time for a snack and independent play or work. Evergreen students who do not attend Pine Point will check in at the Front Office a couple of minutes prior to the start time of their lesson, tutoring session, or class.

Beyond the Wall: Vernal pools
Fridays, February 7 & 21, and Saturday, March 28
Course fee: $120
Taught by: Mrs. Crawford and Mr. Mitchell
Introduction to Manatuck Preserve
What’s on the other side of that wall?! Join Ms. Crawford and Mr. Mitchell as they enter Manatuck Preserve, the 200-acre conservation property owned by Pine Point School and our neighbors. On our first day we will explore some of the various ecosystems, highlighted with a stop at vernal pools. On our next two visits, we will focus on vernal pools as a unique habitat within forests and see how they change from winter into spring. What causes the changes? What is the effect on plants and animals around vernal pools? We will walk outside in the woods in all but extreme weather – clothing that protects from rain and cold is necessary!
