Pinnacle’s field trips are curriculum and community-based.  They are designed to help reinforce or set the stage for lessons that occur in the classroom and provide multi-modal learning opportunities.  All field trips are opportunities for students to practice social cognition skills as they are out in the community, interacting with others outside of the school.

Fun Fridays are optional events scheduled on specific Friday afternoons after regular dismissal. (Students who do not participate will be dismissed as usual.) Fun Fridays are designed to provide social opportunities to Pinnacle students outside of the regular school day and are sponsored by the Pinnacle Parent Association (PPA). Organized by parents with the help of the Special Projects Administrator, Pinnacle staff chaperone though parents are encouraged to attend.  Some of the events take place at Pinnacle, while others take place at designated locations.  


The after school sports program focuses on building commitment and perseverance with our students in grades 7-12 through the development of teamwork skills, an awareness of positive physical fitness practices, and a sense of good sportsmanship. It is an opportunity for our students to enhance their overall athletic ability and includes both competitive and less competitive/skill building components. The program takes place after school Tuesdays and Thursdays for an hour. Each session includes time for warm-ups, technique development, and games. Skill building groups focus on acclimating our students to participating in sports activities with an emphasis on teamwork, sportsmanship, and the development of core athletic skills.
