A Peek Inside a Day at
PHOENIX CLASSICAL Microschool
Daily ArrivalStudents must be ready to attend online class at 8:00am sharp. If they do not have synchronous class time at 8:00am, they will work with the facilitators to prepare asynchronous course work. Please make sure your child brings their laptop and printouts each day. We must encourage our students to be self-directed in this effort. Please put all snacks and lunches in the kitchen. Backpacks and shoes are to remain outside the front door. If they do not have synchronous class time at 8:00am, they will work with the facilitators to prepare asynchronous course work. Please make sure your child brings their laptop and printouts each day. We must encourage our students to be self-directed in this effort. Due to the location of the bathroom, students must use the bathroom before school starts. We will have breaks every 1 hour for bathroom trips. We must be respectful of all online student’s schedules and not interrupt except for during these breaks. Please drop your student off at the stairs where we will take them to the classroom. After the students are prepared for class, they may use the time after drop off until 8:00am to socialize, move their bodies, get water.
Daily DismissalDismissal is at 3:00pm. The students will be waiting outside for their pick up. If the parent is not picking up the child, we MUST be given prior notice. We will ask for an ID to confirm identity. There is a 15 minute grace period. After this we will charge $5/15 minutes. If you are picking up your child at any time other than dismissal, please inform your child and the facilitators so the team is prepared to stop working and leave the group.
Weekly SchedulePCM operates Tuesday - Thursday 8:00am - 2:30pm There are two options for your scholars: Two days a week, or four days. Fridays will be off, with every other week a community outing. These outings will range from a museum, to a hike, to a coffee meet up. We encourage families to join in as often as they can as this is our time to get to know each other and create community. During the school days, the mornings will largely consist of synchronous or asynchronous work. The afternoons will alternate between recess and outdoor time and independent work. Our goal is to work with parents and students to maximize efficiency in completion of work so the evening is free. Please help us by prioritizing what work is preferred to be done at the microschool. We will help our scholars work on this first. Our aim is to complete PE together as a school. Drama and improv projects will also be part of our routine as we feel these are valuable and applicable skills.
Lunch and SnacksPhoenix Classical Microschool prioritizes the health of the body as directly impacting the health of the mind. Please only send healthy, whole foods for your child. We will have fruit such as bananas and apples available for all children. We will gauge nut allergies and may adopt policy regarding this. Please pack a water bottle. There will be times to refill water while on campus. PLEASE, NO CANDY
