Summer Program 2017

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). 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 from 8-12pm with one teacher.

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 the high school students grades 9-12, we offer classes that start a little later at 9am and ran till 12pm Monday through Thursday. In partnership with the College Access Plan, students prepared for both the SAT and ACT. We are also offered a Graphic Design class that helped students get ahead with a great portfolio, while having fun practicing new skills. This course incorporated 3-D printing and computers to offer the latest technologies for design. PEF did not offer credit classes this year.

Summer Enrichment Program 2016 Course Proposal

Deadline extension for course proposals has now passed.
We are looking for teachers that have a passion for teaching. There is a high demand for language immersion, reading, science, robotics, art, cooking, and technology including coding. Classes are offered for grades K-12: self-contained Introduction to Kindergarten and first grade, block classes for 2-8 grades, and high school classes (not-for-credit). Please see last year’s catalog here for types of classes offered. We ask that even returning teachers please submit a proposal, even if for the same/similar class as last year.
