Kids to the Park

The Kids to the Park Grant is through the National Park Trust. The grant is for in park education and stewardship to increase outdoor play and awareness. PHSSA's Third Grade class chose to visit Chippokes State Park due to its rich Virginia history, beach fossils, animals, and a working farm. PHSSA teachers worked with park rangers to create a day including a short hike, two education programs, and a stewardship program to clean up the beach.

Our Third Graders helped write the grant by answering questions such as what they thought they would learn and why they should receive the grant. After  the visit, they wrote a short summary of what they learned and experienced.
