The physical education program at Pincushion is broken down into three segments for the Elementary students, based on the time of year. Segments 1 and 3 are conducted on-site by a certified physical education instructor from September through November and again March through May. Each week the children will enhance their cooperation and team building skills through activities that put their bodies in motion. Various sports and games are offered as well as an introduction to international outdoor games. During Segment 2, November thru February, students participate in a wellness program in the Elementary classroom.
Pincushion Hill Montessori School has grown into a rich and full community during its 56-year history; a history that began long before the school came into existence. The original building that would later house part of Pincushion Hill Montessori School can be seen in the 1854 map of Ashland.
