6th Grade: Shady Creek Outdoor School
Shady Creek Outdoor School is a week-long, in-residence science camp experience. The program, dating back to the '50s, is designed for sixth graders to study natural sciences along with creative writing, art and social sciences. To quote the camp itself, "The natural environment around Shady Creek is rich and diverse. Students have the opportunity to study in a forest, visit bird blinds to watch wildlife undetected, investigate aquatic life at the creek, meet Shady Creek’s resident injured hawks and owls, explore many beautiful scenic areas, look at plant and animal life, study the stars, and many other subjects." The opportunity is not one to be missed as students often cite the experience as one of the highlights of their three years here at PCMS. This trip is led by Mr. Blaschke and Mrs. Behlke. Please visit our Shady Creek informational website for more information about the trip, or visit the Shady Creek Outdoor School homepage.
