Welcome to Kindergarten! Here at PHSSA, our kindergarteners are outside explorers! Students learn through movement, music, and environmental experiences. Kindergarteners go on weekly hikes through Forest Hill Park, where topics discussed in the classroom will be brought to life. Art is another powerful learning tool we implement in kindergarten. This year, your student will be focusing on phonics, number sense, and natural science. We will also put a focus on mindfulness, kindness, and the importance of community.
