Weekly courses are open to the community!
For enrolled Pine Point Students, our daily Creative Play and Learning Labs run from dismissal through 4:30 p.m., and you may sign up through Evergreen for the season at a discount to secure your student’s spot, or use the SchoolPass app to drop in on a daily basis as space permits.
All families new to Evergreen will need to create an account and add each student in their household to the account. Students are not considered fully registered until payment is received, so don’t forget to check out after adding programs to your cart.

Chess with Rookly
Grades 2, 3, 4, 5
Instructor: Luke Brown
Rookly began when founders Amir Moazami and Matthew Zeitlin were six years old competing on the Horace Mann chess team. Chess kept them close as they went to colleges on opposite coasts. Amir and Matthew founded Rookly to share their love of the game with children across the country. Our classes are structured to develop academic confidence in students by starting from piece movement and gradually building to more complicated strategical ideas.
Note: Rookly classes are remote, and will be held on campus in a supervised space. Students will need devices to access the Rookly platform. Evergreen will provide devices to those who need them.
Grades 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

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!
