PTHS D209 Expands Summer Program Opportunities

PTHS D209 is proud to announce that more programs have been added to our list of summer course offering. Summer course offerings are designed for students to further explore their academic and career interests and learn valuable skills. Courses range from credit course recovery to STEAM camps. Summer Programs Registration runs from April 17 through June 5, 2019.

In addition to offering an academic camp to freshman, PTHS D209 will be offering an academic camp for sophomores this summer. These camps are designed not only to develop literacy and math skills but to enhance prosocial skills as well. Students will be motivated and challenged in a fun and safe environment.

During the summer students will have an opportunity to enroll in the following types of programs: 

  • Recovery Courses (Taken to replace a course a student has failed)
  • Original Credit Courses (Courses taken for the first time)
  • Freshman STEAM Camp (5-week camp for incoming freshmen. Application required)
  • Summer Theme Camps (Theme camps for freshmen and sophomores)

PTHS D209 Superintendent Jesse J. Rodriguez stated, “In Summer 2018, PTHS D209 launched an enrichment program that included original credit courses in journalism, mural arts, and consumer education. This year, we have expanded our summer programs to include freshman STEAM programs where students must create a product and execute a real startup company. We look forward to seeing our students this summer!”
