Minimester

Middle School Minimester

Minimester is a time for specialized learning for students in 5th and 6th grade and is a required event in the Middle School curriculum. Since PCA Minimester is part of the Middle School curriculum, participation is required and all absences not due to illness must be pre-approved.

Fifth Grade

One of the highlights of the Middle School year is Minimester, when our students take the week prior to Spring Break to experience extensions in learning outside of the typical classroom environment. All of the activities touch on some component of Luke 2:52 – “and Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”This year’s Minimester week is March 6-10, 2017.

Information

Fifth grade students will spend the week of March 6-10 visiting and working at several different venues such as: an economics and community study through Enterprise City, a visit to the Perot Museum, and a tour of Global Park in Arlington followed with a picnic at the park. Additional activities include hands-on learning with High Touch/High Tech and World War II Day. The cost is $105.00 per student.

Parents will be needed to assist with driving to and from events during the week.
