Programs for Summer 2018

The information below is in regards to the 2018 summer program. Once the 2019 program has been planned, that information will be made available here.

 

Summer at The Post Oak School is a time of wonder and exploration.

Montessori principles continue to guide our work in prepared environments with a distinctive flavor of summer. At the Bissonnet Campus, students enjoy fun activities such as splash days, outdoor play, gardening, arts and crafts, cooking, and transition classes, etc. In July, they will proudly participate in our grand Independence Day parade.

At the Museum District Campus, Middle and High School students explore technology, math, writing, and languages.

We hope you will join us this summer at Post Oak!

Young Children's Community (YCC)

Our summer YCC class will take place in a familiar, caring environment led by a Montessori-trained teacher. The routine of the day will be comfortable, encouraging growth and independence, with activities that may include gardening, water play, and outdoor fun.

The full-day class will be offered for eight weeks. Current full-day Post Oak students have priority for the full-day class. Current half-day YCC students will be enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis as space becomes available.

Primary

Summertime in the Primary Community is a blast! Friday splash days, outdoor activities, crafts, games, music, and more are combined with the familiar work of the Primary environment. Along with one regular Primary class, we will also offer one Primary Spanish immersion class. Both Primary classes will be led by Montessori-trained teachers. Full-day children should enroll for full days in summer. Extended care during the summer session is only for children already enrolled in the extended-day program at the end of May.

Elementary Transition

This class for students transitioning from Primary to Lower Elementary in the fall of 2018, will be offered for all eight weeks of summer. It is set up in a Lower Elementary classroom and is taught by our Elementary faculty. This class provides an opportunity to strengthen skills, orient students to the new environment, and prepare them for entry into the Lower Elementary classroom in the fall. It is strongly recommended that transitioning students attend for at least three weeks. The day’s schedule is from 8:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.

Elementary

Elementary students will enjoy a wide variety of entertaining and instructional summer camp activities that may include art, cooking, baking, sewing, hula hoop fitness, tennis, fencing, chess, and yoga. Most classes will be led by Post Oak teachers. Plan ahead to insure a space for your child. A schedule of weekly activities at the Elementary level is listed in the Summer Program booklet (above).

Middle School

Students have the opportunity to hone their technology skills or immerse themselves in language and writing.

High School

There are classes for High School students to keep busy this summer, from boot camps in math and college essay writing to Spanish and Chinese language and cultural studies.
