Many of our programs are underway -- After-School Robotics and High Tech Earth Awareness (the Pacifica program sponsored by San Mateo County); Academic Achievement Centers (formerly Homework Centers, supported through SMCOE); PEF 21st Century Learning Experiences (all grade levels will be experiencing activities throughout the year); PSV Parent Nights.
We are truly working to provide the needed opportunities for our students to develop the 21st century skills of collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, and civility.
