Park City Day School provides small class sizes, a dynamic curriculum, and creatively-inspired education for preschool through middle school

Park City Day School is excited to announce that donations made through Live PC/Give PC will provide the "seed money" for the PCDS new trail system!

The PCDS trail system will continue to grow over time with the PCDS Campus Master Plan to incorporate fitness, team building equipment, science, art, and other educational opportunities. The PCDS trail system will benefit both students and the community on a year round basis.

Initial work has begun on the PCDS trail system through the efforts of the 7th grade class. Led by Coach Tom and Mrs. McGinn and applying study in English, science, and wellness and in conjunction with the Trail-building Explorations course this fall, the 7th graders have launched a year-long Service Learning project to design and build an interpretive trail in the open space on our campus behind the school.

During designated days in the fall, winter, and spring, students will tackle the project in two parts; first, they will design and create the trail which will be led by coach Tom, and then Mrs. McGinn will lead them in gathering information about area plant life, animal life, and more that will be incorporated into their work in their English course to create interpretive stations and markers throughout the trail.

The 7th graders began work earlier this fall cutting and clearing the start of the trail. This place-based project not only provides students an authentic context for applying skills and knowledge they will acquire through their research and work, but provides this 7th grade group - the Class of 2017 - a chance to leave a legacy for future students and the whole community to use and develop further.
