The curriculum will include the infusion of early literacy skills, science, math, music and the arts, providing an excellent foundation fr success while having fun and forming new social connections.

PV Global Literacy and Math Academy (Grades 1-5): will provide four weeks of highly engaging practice and preview of grade-level curriculum. Topics will include: reading, writing, math, and incorporate geography, technology, art, and music! The goal of the academy is for students to (1) Have fun (2) Improve writing skills (3) Be creative (4) Learn about the world! The PV Global Literacy and Math Academy at Dapplegray is a traditional summer school program, focused on reading, writing, and mathematics, with an international theme.

First, Second, and Third Grade students will engage in reading, writing, and math activities that focus on stories from around the world and biomes of the continents. This will include both fiction and non-fiction reading with opportunities for research, writing, and oral presentations. Math practice will include problem solving and improvement of basic computation skills.

Fourth and Fifth Grade students will focus on the making of America with an emphasis on the many cultures that created it. Each student will choose a biography to read and create a report comparing ad contrasting cultural backgrounds. Students will further read a collection of short stories from lands near and far. Other activities may include writing letters, commercials, and summaries related to their readings and class discussions. Mathematics will focus on decimals, fractions, and percentages through a number of games, projects and daily practice.

ADVENTURES IN KINDERGARTEN (GRADES TK-K)  This class is designed for children entering kindergarten or transitional kindergarten (TK).  Students enrolled will be engaged in a variety of fun-filled activities designed to enrich and expand their academic skill set. They will be encouraged to explore, create, dismantle and reconstruct in a “hands on” learning environment that will focus on further developing intellectual curiosity.  The curriculum will include the infusion of early literacy skills, science, mathematics, music and the arts, providing an excellent foundation for success while having fun and forming new social connections.

PV STEAM ACADEMY (GRADES 1-5) The PV STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) Academy will feature four weeks of highly engaging learning investigations in STEAM related fields and include:

  • Robotics and Engineering
  • Computer Science and Programming (Coding)
  • Inventions
  • Video Production and Game Design
  • STEM Challenges
  • Mathematical Modeling and Problem Solving through Architectural Design
  • Inquiry-Based, Hands-On Science Learning
  • Art Projects

The goal of the academy is for students to (1) Have fun (2) Be engaged (3) Be creative and (4) Learn robotics, engineering, and coding skills.  Students enrolled in the PV STEAM Academy will learn and apply the engineering design cycle to solve real world problems.  Specifically, they will ask questions, identify constraints, conduct research, develop and test solutions and prototypes, and redesign as needed to find workable solutions.  During the four week session, students will learn from teachers with specific expertise in the STEM domains and keep journals of their learning.  Students will be grouped by grade level.  On occasion, it may become necessary to blend grade levels in order to balance enrollment.  Should this occur, we will notify parents of this decision in a timely manner.  Instruction will be adjusted to accommodate every level of learners as they explore each field of study.  The PV STEAM team looks forward to meeting your young scientists this summer!
