Kindergarten Engineers!

During her last rotation with them, Varley taught Kindergarteners about the basis for engineering! These kiddos are learning how to support weight, gain spatial awareness, select the right material for the job, create and design, and a whole lot more!


Coming in **1** Week: The Circus

This year’s Pod 3/4 Circus will be held virtually on Friday, May 7 at 7pm. A throwback to the 1970’s kid-run show, the students in Pod 3/4 also run this show. They’ve learned skills and created skits, all designed to be recorded this year. Students have used classrooms, the blacktop, PMFS outdoor spaces, and their own neighborhoods as backdrops for their recordings. Don’t miss this unique opportunity (yes, there WILL be unicycling)!

Join us on Facebook Live for Zoom on Zoom!

Soccer Shots comes to PMFS

Soccer Shots was on campus this week to begin a spring soccer program with all Pre-K through 6th grade students, which will continue to the end of the school year. Soccer Shots instructors teach soccer and character development through its innovative curriculum and imaginative games. Each class will have soccer instruction and practice twice a week, taking advantage of the 3-acre field which is part of on the PMFS campus.


Spotted Around Campus: Playground Potions!

Wonder what our imaginative students were creating here…

Reimagining Spring Traditions at PMFS

Traditions are meaningful and vital to PMFS and to our students and families, especially in these oh-so-unusual times. They ground us and they demonstrate some of the skills students have gained throughout the year; and they’re a lot of fun too! PMFS staff have been working hard to reimagine and retool Spring events at the heart of our program. We invite you to save the date for our upcoming events, including:

  • Friday, May 7, 7pm – Pod 3/4 Circus, via Facebook Live
  • Friday, May 21, 7pm – ArtsFest, via Facebook Live
  • Friday, June 4 & Saturday, June 5 – 6th Grade Performance – more details to come
  • In lieu of our beloved Strawberry Festival, the PTO is marking this occasion with treats and t-shirts for all the kids. Each year one design is chosen from the many that students propose for the festival t-shirt and 2021 will be no exception! Please help your PTO t-shirt organizers: fill out this form indicating your child’s t-shirt size!

Campus Stewardship: Volunteers Needed!

PMFS needs your help to keep our campus looking beautiful. Being physically on campus is a great way for students to connect to their school and feel a sense of pride and ownership. You can come whenever you want on a Saturday and stay as long or as little as you like. Sign up for a timeslot here!
