History comes alive for PCRS students during St. Augustine field trip

Outside the Box – Honey Nixon Panama City Renaissance School students traveled back in time during a field trip to the nation’s oldest city, St. Augustine, Florida. Ms. Estes, the PCRS history teacher who coordinates the excursion every year, guided children and their parents to the various forts and museums that make St. Augustine famous. The first stop was the Castillo de San Marcos, the oldest masonry fort in North America. Participants enjoyed a reenactment of Spanish soldiers firing cannons, explored the many rooms within the fort and learned about the fort’s use throughout history. Next the students toured two hands-on museums, St. Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum and St. Augustine’s Colonial Spanish Quarter Museum, where the kids fired a cannon, touched a 400-year-old treasure chest, and watched a “Spanish soldier” load and fire a musket. This educational field trip was an opportunity for students to see first hand that history is more than pages in a book. Though this field trip is tailored to the second-grade history students, the entire school was encouraged to attend. We thank Ms. Estes and PCRS parents for making this trip a success!...

Students channel their creativity in Artist in Residence Program

Outside the Box – Honey Nixon Students have been working hard all year to expand their artistic horizons under the careful eye of Kim Griffin, a Panama City Renaissance School Artist in Residence. Participants began their journey last semester by learning design basics such as form, balance, perspective and composition. Ms. Griffin then guided them through the basics of sketching. After the children learned to see objects more critically, they put their brushes to the canvas creating watercolor, latex and acrylic artwork. A special thank you to Ms. Griffin for encouraging PCRS students to trust their instincts during the creative process. This approach has truly encouraged some beautiful works of art!...
