Reading for Change

Posted July, 2021

 

Our brave students have accepted the Reading for Change – Open-Book Challenge! Reading opens doors to new adventures and new opportunities for a hopeful future. Our goals: 

  1. to improve reading readiness skills for the vulnerable students we serve;

  2. to help students develop a life-long love of books, and;

  3. to raise funds to further each child’s education.  


​We will let you know how we did!

Providence 360 - CVSM Lessons

Posted July, 2021

 

For the past four years, Providence has partnered with Cumberland Valley School of Music for keyboarding lessons with Mrs. Marie Hershey. In light of the restrictions imposed during the pandemic, we will re-evaluate the feasibility of continuing these lessons during the fall.

 

There is a possibility that lessons might begin in the spring or be delayed until the 2022-23 academic year. Thank you for your patience and understanding during these uncertain times.

 

 

Advancing Science

Posted July, 2021

 

Providence benefits from the Advancing Science program through Gettysburg College. The college receives our requests for experimental equipment and transports materials to and from our school. Mr. Michael Chase established this collaboration in our school's founding year, and it has been a consistent blessing ever since.

STEAM - Model Railroading

Posted July, 2021

 

Mr. Tom Clark, Mr. Jack Hull, and Mrs. Barbara Clark, along with our Art teachers Mrs. Fitzpatrick and Mr. Hannaman have developed our innovative STEAM program. The program teaches science, technology,  engineering, art, and mathematics in an application that scales and builds a model community and railroading transportation system. The students learn ratios and other mathematics and engineering concepts, while practicing painting and craft skills in creating beautiful scenery. The work is on display for open house events, particularly Christmas at Providence.
