Students are encouraged to express themselves through art. With the many courses available, the Visual Arts curriculum helps each student find joy in creating art through a variety of ways, including two- and three-dimensional media.
Through the use of instructional gaming, children develop better decision-making skills, are more aware of the consequences of their actions, and are able to think about and sustain progress towards long-term gains. Students combine artistic and creative skills to address immediate tactical needs. Chess welcomes students who are new to chess as well as those with experience.
In kindergarten – grade 5, the reading and language arts program is an area of major emphasis. Realizing that a child’s attitude toward reading may determine how he or she regards learning in general, we strive to make reading enjoyable and interesting.

The Language Arts program in grades 6 – 8 integrates the study of literature, composition and language to improve the student’s skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Summer Orientation Programs introduce incoming students and their families to life at Punahou School, demonstrating the Punahou's commitment to teaching, learning and scholarship. This summer program aims to enhance the new student experience by providing guidance and assistance to students making academic, personal and social adjustments.
Each summer the Punahou Athletics Department offers athletic participation opportunities in a variety of sports. Benefits of summer athletic participation include developing and/or improving skills, quality coaching and the use of athletic facilities including the Weight Room (Grades 7 – 12 only). Practice dates and times vary with each sport.

Absences for Summer Athletics should be reported to 808.943.3200.

Enrollment is limited to current and incoming Punahou students.

Required Athletic Participation Form must be on file with Punahou School to participate.
Emphasis is placed on individual skill building, sportsmanship, physical fitness and fun through the gradual development of gross and fine motor skills in the physical education program. The primary children receive instruction in creative movement, while swimming is added for grades 1 – 8. The program utilizes indoor and outdoor facilities for physical education and also shares the swimming pool, gymnastics room, racquetball courts and outdoor fields. Further, off-campus experiences provide unique summer sports opportunities for the students.
The science program is built upon the belief that students learn science by actively engaging in inquiries that are interesting and important to them. In learning science, students describe objects and events, ask questions, acquire knowledge, construct explanations of natural phenomena, test those explanations in many different ways and communicate their ideas to others. The experiences include learning physical science, life science, earth and space science, and science and technology. Further, students have an opportunity to engage in diverse engineering, technology and applied science courses.
From kindergarten – grade 8, students enjoy broad exposure to the arts as an integral part of the curriculum, by participating in a wide variety of summer options. The scope of opportunity includes both visual arts and performing arts.
Broad themes provide structure for the social studies program: diversity, interdependence, power, identity, socialization, choices and change. Thinking skills emphasize recalling ideas and information, using ideas and information, using learned ideas in new contexts, analyzing ideas and information, inventing solutions and evaluating ideas. A foreign language experience program gives students the opportunity for cultural activities.
Punahou Music School offers a program of private and group lessons as well as special summer classes. Most lessons and classes are held in Montague Hall. All classes are subject to cancellation if there is insufficient enrollment.

All Music School classes and lessons begin the week of Monday, June 13, 2016 and run for five weeks.

The K – 5 mathematics program is activity-based, asking children to explore, conjecture and think mathematically. The teachers provide experiences that help students make sense of mathematics, and to view and use it as a tool for reasoning and problem solving.

The Case Middle School mathematics program is designed to integrate, facilitate, and advocate for each child’s mathematics learning. Specific emphasis is placed on understanding why a mathematical principle works, as opposed to simply how it works. This is done through a variety of teaching techniques such as large and small group instruction, hands-on and other manipulative activities, investigations that are integrated across curricular strands, and appropriate technological tools and software.
The Omidyar K – 1 Neighborhood provides a caring environment in which each child’s growth, curiosity and accomplishments are supported. We believe that children:
  • Learn by exploration, inquiry and discovery
  • Should be encouraged to be creative
  • Gain a deeper understanding when experiences and subjects are integrated and connected
  • Should be encouraged to be responsible, respectful, resourceful and contributing members of a group
  • Learn through play
  • Should be encouraged to develop positive social skills and relationships
  • Learn through real life experiences and hands-on activities
  • Learn through collaboration and interaction with others
  • Learn to be self-directed by making choices
  • Learn best in a safe, supportive, trustworthy environment
  • Learn when they use and develop their large and small muscles
  • Should be encouraged to sustain and extend their natural curiosity.
Based on these beliefs we have designed a program for our youngest learners, which encompasses both academics and the arts, and integrates curriculum from popular summer classes such as Book Cooks, Math Workshop, Reading Workshop, and Science Detectives.

A-R-R-R-T: Learning to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle through Art
Have you ever wondered what to do with all of the things in the back of your closet that you haven’t touched in years? What about old magazines, plastic bottles and cans? In this course, students learn to look at what is usually unused and wasted as opportunity for self-expression. Integrated with the principals of sustainability, A-R-R-R-T aims to challenge students to think creatively about how to reduce, reuse and recycle while producing beautiful and useful works of art.

Animation & Motion
In this lively, multimedia class, students explore traditional and experimental animation, filmmaking, choreography and movement, rhythm, improvisation and writing. Often drawing on personal experience for content, students strive for self-expression. Given specific guidelines to work with, students create exciting projects that spark their imaginations. Students are encouraged to “get active” and use their moving bodies in their projects. Narrative vs. abstraction as a mode of creation is examined. Working in groups and alone, students push beyond their boundaries to create surprising new art works for the screen and for the live experience.

Animation Sensation
Students in this course learn to tell stories and bring characters to life. With the use of computers, digital cameras, LEGO®, clay and other materials, the students take a series of still images and turn them into their own animated movies. Movie-making content such as set design, storyboarding, script writing, lighting and pre- and post-production planning are covered. The students also have daily lessons on how to use stop-action software. They learn to make titles, import music, create sound effects, record dialog, and import digital images and graphics in order to bring their creative ideas to life. A wonderfully creative imagination and an interest in using computers are all a student needs to enjoy this course. Prior computer experience is not required but is preferred.

Art of Writing
There is no doubt that writing involves more art than science, and yet the technical aspect of writing provides the possibilities for artful compositions. This class balances writing as an art form as well as a skill that requires a firm grasp of conventions. The class writes for different purposes, which include communication, summarization, textual connection, figurative expression, persuasion, poetry interpretation and reflection. Throughout all of the exercises, a greater emphasis is placed on the writing process as opposed to the finished product. Students also utilize the technology of laptop computers as they progress in their writing. Each student has something to gain and contribute to the class. The class is designed to develop the minds of artisans who appreciate the challenges, beauty, and fulfillment of writing.

Grade 5: Students learn to write with structure, articulation and style as well as be creative and write independently. Using elements of "storytelling," students recreate classic, well-written stories while adding their own flare.
Grade 6: Contemporary writing: journaling, expository writing, video essays, poetry, creative interpretation of stories, grammar skills

Bytes & Megabytes: Computational Thinking
Programing is a fun and an important part of every child’s education. However, understanding all the code in the world doesn’t help them, if they don’t know how and where to apply it. With plugged and unplugged activities, students learn to analyze a problem, design a solution, build, test and present an end product. The end results of this course is that the student understands:
  • The basics of hardware versus software
  • How, when and where programming languages are used
  • “What is Data” versus “What is Information”
  • Key algorithms (repeatable steps) that are used for efficient sorting and searching of data
  • Basic programming concepts via a program called “Tynker”
Ultimately, the aim is for the students to become great problem solvers, use technology safely and respectfully and to learn how to collaborate in a team environment.

Clayground
When was the last time you created something out of clay? Wouldn't it be great if you could work with clay every day? In this afternoon course students discover how easy it is to create inventive forms by learning different clay building techniques like pinching, coiling, using a slab and wheel throwing. This nurturing environment focuses on experimentation and fun rather than an end product as the course aims to heighten sensory awareness and build confidence in clay-building skills. Students create functional pieces like a place setting (bowl, plate and cup), which they can use, and explore nonfunctional artwork like creating a ceramic portrait. Students finish their projects by adding texture and color, then watch their artwork magically transform through the firing process. The artwork they create during this course could last a lifetime.

Contemporary Circus Performance
During this two-week, full-day intensive, students have the opportunity to train in a variety of circus skills, including:  acrobatics, basic tumbling, juggling, object manipulation, balance and an introductory-level aerial arts field trip. During these training sessions, students are grouped by age and experience. Building on these skills, students are guided in the creation of solo, duo or small-group circus acts which layer in theatricality, choreography and the expression of an idea, story or scene.  Salvaged or recycled materials are utilized to create elements of costuming and props. Students cultivate coordination, strength, focus, cooperation, and confidence as we work collaboratively towards the creation of our culminating class performance. This performance will be held on Thursday of the second week.

Please plan to bring a reusable water bottle, snacks and lunch daily. Please wear attire that accommodates daily tumbling practice (e.g. well-fitting top, shorts/pants/leggings/bike shorts and any long hair tied back).
