WELCOME

At Parish, we believe exciting learning extends well beyond the confines of the school day or even the school year. Fueled by this belief, we initiated ParishEXTEND, one of Parish’s distinctive signature programs, in 2010 as a means to offer innovative after school and summer enrichment, challenge-based programs and academic support services to students in a wide range of subject areas.

The beauty of ParishEXTEND is in the richness of our programming. We actively seek to form partnerships with a host of dynamic local and national program providers in areas such as the arts, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), fitness and academics. In addition, passionate members of the Parish faculty contribute their talents. The result? A learning experience which taps into your child’s interests and stimulates his or her mind outside the traditional school day and calendar. ParishEXTEND Summer combines the dynamic academic and enrichment programming of ParishEXTEND with a series of summer camps to create a unique array of options for your child. From our traditional all day camp featuring memorable theme-based activities to half-day camps in athletics, the arts, STEM and academics, ParishEXTEND Summer offers stimulating, fun and cost-effective learning and social activities for your child.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Grades 6 - 9 Weeks 2, 10 Students in this course will learn how to use the engineering design process and knowledge about electricity to create an invention for social good.  They will harness the power of 3D printing to prototype their inventions and see how it might be used in a real life, global context. Students will explore electricity from many angles:  From the perspective of great historical inventors (such as the Wright Brothers, and Thomas Edison), the vantage point of their partner school students, and from a hands on experience experimenting with how electricity works.  3D printing will both support and make this learning applicable.  During each class, students will learn how to use a 3D printer with the design software, Tinkercad (or another suggested CAD software) to support a handson understanding of the manufacturing phase of the engineering design process. Relying on the engineering design process, students will synthesize what they learn throughout this course to create a book light for use in their partner student’s home community.  Over the course of several classes, they will prototype designs and put the iterative process to work as they discuss, compare and contrast designs with one another.   This class gives students the tools to be creative and knowledgeable INVENTORS.

Level Up Village: Global Scientists in Training

Grades 3 - 6 Weeks 4, 8 Clean water. Nearly one billion people on our planet lack access to it. This class arms young people to be a part of the solution to this crisis. We begin with an exploration of the unique properties of water. No drop of what we drink of it is a new drop.  It has always been in our water cycle.  Not to mention water dissolves most basic rules of chemistry.  Students explore the special things that water can do at the molecular level using hands-on experiments and 3D kits that make the learning feel more like playing! They explore our global relationship with water through interactions with their partner school students. Together students move from the theoretical to the applicable, constructing a working aquifer to better understand how we get, use and sometimes pollute ground water. Then our young scientists delve into an exploration of the innovations that are part of the solution to our water crisis. They will create two different kinds of water filters as part of that process. Students keep their aquifers at the end of class!

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Blended (or hybrid) learning is a combination of traditional instruction in a classroom setting and innovative, online course work.

How do classes meet online?

Online components of ParishVirtual courses are asynchronous: students log-on whenever they choose and complete their course work. From time-to-time, students may choose to meet virtually (via Skype, for example) to coordinate assignments and projects that require collaboration.

How do classes meet face-to-face?

Classes meet typically for 1.5 hours on a weekly basis. There is a set schedule for each class which can be referenced on the website, www.parishepiscopal.org/ summerextend.

How much time do ParishVirtual courses typically require? Students should plan to invest approximately 5-7 hours per week online to complete assignments in each course. In addition, each course has its own expectations with regard to the number of face-to-face meetings. While ParishVirtual courses do expand the work and interaction classes have beyond the traditional classroom, there are still a minimum number of face-to-face classes students are required to attend.

How are ParishVirtual’s blended classes taught?

ParishVirtual’s teachers create their own course materials; connect students to relevant content gathered from a variety of sources; and curate online material for students’ use. Classes are delivered online using a learning management system called Edmodo to facilitate engagement, interaction and collaboration among students and connect students to their teacher for structure and support. Edmodo also enables teachers and students to connect efficiently to a wide variety of online learning tools. Blogger, Diigo, Google sites, Prezi, Slideshare, Wikispaces and Wordle are among the more popular tools that enable students and teachers to collaborate, create, and share online.

These courses are designed, developed, and taught by teachers from Parish Episcopal School. Students will receive Parish credit for each course – please check with your school administration in advance to be sure that credits transfer. Courses listed below vary in length. Courses that earn .333 credits are equivalent to one trimester; courses that earn .5 credits are equivalent to one semester; and courses that earn 1 full credit are equivalent to a full academic year. The dates listed as part of each course description refer to the weeks in which face-to-face classroom sessions will be offered. “Hours expected per week” is a guideline for planning how much time to invest (both online and face-toface) in order to meet instructors’ expectations. If you are interested in taking a ParishVirtual Summer Academy course, please first consult your academic advisor at school and discuss the choice with your parents or guardians. When you have questions about any of the current course offerings please e-mail Marc Addington, Director of ParishVirtual, at maddington@parishepiscopal.org.

Do students earn credit?

Yes, students earn Parish credits that can be transferred. It is up to school leaders at your school, however, to determine what type of credit students may earn. ParishVirtual course descriptions denote types of credit earned at Parish: some courses earn credit toward graduation; some courses earn departmental credit; and some earn elective credit. ParishVirtual courses are unique because they involve blended learning: a combination of traditional instruction in a classroom setting and innovative, online course work.
