Career Pathways Charter School Monthly News July 2021
Experiential Learning

Experiential Learning is one of the three kinds of learning that we offer at Career Pathways. We specialize in experiential learning options for all of our students. It can mean credit for work and volunteer time, class field trips, or hands on projects. Our Summer Longboard Program is an example of experiential learning and brought together multiple credit earning options for our students (see below).

Summer Longboard Program

Our students have been working hard these past few weeks, creating their new mode of transportation: Longboards! In collaboration with Urban Boatbuilders, our students have learned that plywood, a wood planer, and sandpaper go a long way. The first two weeks were spent gluing, shaving, and shaping their longboards. Learning to use several different tools, students were able to make their longboards in the shapes of a coffin, oval, or rectangle. 

The next week students got to bring another form of creativity to the board. They sat down and spent a week painting, designing, and shellacking their longboards. Every color in the rainbow was used during this process. Some students created galaxies, stars, Pokemons, and internet memes to express themselves on their board. After they finished painting and sealing the paint, it was time for the last step: the wheels.

This past week students got to experience the excitement of riding their hand made longboards. Students were taught the safety of skating and had a proper introduction on learning how to skate. In minutes, students were creating their own practice courses using loose wheels to create different obstacles inside the gym.
Lastly, students were able to put their skills to the test by learning to use their longboards outside! 

ICE CREAM SOCIAL 

Join us on Friday, August 13th from 5 to 7PM for our annual Ice Cream Social for families, staff, and community members. 

Wally O. Wonka and his Leprechaun Dreamcycle will be back to provide treats and entertainment. Meet new staff, reconnect with old friends, and enjoy a cool treat. See you then! 

BACK TO SCHOOL

On Thursday September 9 students and staff will all be back in the building ready for a new school year.

Teachers will be meeting with families before school starts on Tuesday and Wednesday, 9 / 7 & 8 to set goals, review transcripts on Headrush, and co-create class schedules.
