Summer Program 2018

The 2018 PEF Summer Enrichment Program will mark the 15th year of our 5-week program, which mixes academic subjects with creative hands-on projects taught by local educators. Students are inspired while having fun learning as their classes prepare them for the upcoming school year.

TEACHERS: We are currently accepting proposal from teachers who love to teach. Apply now, and join us this summer to inspire lifelong learners with fun, project-based classes!

All elementary sites host the self-contained Introduction to Kindergarten and Introduction to First Grade classes for incoming Kindergarten and first grade students (K-1) in English. Limited sites will host Spanish, Mandarin, and French Immersion Introduction classes. These classes are a fun introduction to school, and a great way for young learners to stay engaged over the summer. Classes will run the full 3 blocks during the morning program.

For students grades 2-8, there is a variety of fun-filled learning and enrichment opportunities. Students chose 3 blocks of classes that ran from 8-12pm. Some of the great classes offered included cooking, robotics, 3-D printing, art studio, math, science and more.

For high school students grades 9-12, there are multiple options to acquire college and career skills this summer: Take one of our courses or serve as a Volunteer Classroom Assistant for a course!  PEF does not offer credit classes this year.

Volunteers:

For the 2017 program we hosted over 100 dedicated adult and teen Volunteer Classroom Assistants provided hands-on support to our students and teachers. This summer our volunteers again have opportunity to serve as experts and mentors in their chosen field, explore career options in teaching and administration, and fulfill community service hours required for graduation. Competitive internships are also available to PUSD College and Career Academy students and to others who complete the full-five weeks of the program. Weekly staff-lead discussions will support volunteers as they become school community leaders.
