Preschool - Grade 1

Early Childhood Creative Play

Monday – Thursday, 3:15 – 4:30 p.m. and/or 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.
Friday, 3:15 – 4:30 p.m.

Students in preschool, kindergarten and 1st grade experience a fun afternoon with the teachers students love from our early childhood program. Program includes independent and social indoor and outdoor play.

Grades 2 - 5

Lower School Learning Lab & Creative Play
Grades 2-5
Monday – Thursday, 3:15 – 4:30 p.m. and/or 5:30 p.m.

Students in Learning Lab & Play will have an opportunity to work on homework and projects in a quiet setting with academic support, interspersed with active brain breaks. The first hour will begin with outdoor play, followed by quiet work time with teacher guidance. In the second hour, active brain breaks will provide students with an age-appropriate outlet to be able to return to their homework and projects for the remaining time. If students have completed their homework they have options for independent play and learning at our quiet learning stations, which may include mindfulness activities, arts and crafts, puzzles, and independent reading.

Grades 6 - 9

Middle School Learning Lab
Grades 6-9 Pine Point Students
Monday – Thursday, 3:15 – 4:30 p.m. and/or 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.
Friday, 3:15 – 4:30 p.m.

Looking for balance after school? Sign your child up for Learning Lab and you may have more time to reconnect as a family at the end of the day. Pine Point teachers are on hand to provide individualized and small group homework and project support for students. 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. 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.

Adults

Adult Art Open Studio with Maria Iacoi
Tuesdays, 3:30-5:30 pm
Location: Pine Point School art room

Join art teacher Maria Iacoi at Pine Point School for our ongoing open studio course, which is designed for beginner or experienced artists ages 18 and older. We explore a variety of media and provide the time and space to create independent, imaginative or representational works of art with support and guidance. Mediums and subject matter are determined with student input, but are likely to include painting, printmaking, collage, and drawing.
Course is designed to accommodate drop-ins if you’re not available for the full session or just want to try it out!

Meet the Trailblazers

Evergreen courses change by the season, and we always have something new in store! In this Evergreen course last year, 4 lucky students headed out into the back fields of Pine Point School to help maintain our trail system. They learned how to properly mark trails, map trails, and keep them clear and safe while working with all sorts of tools and exploring along the way!
