Enrichment Classes & Clubs

The Auxiliary Program offers after-school enrichment classes to students in grades K-5. These classes are designed to engage students in activities with their peers that include a variety of topics. Classes are offered in two sessions during the school year and typically meet once a week for eight weeks.

Enrollment is open to all students, and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Students that do not have an Extended Day contract on the day the class meets will be charged an additional fee. Please note, space is limited in each class.

Athletic program

The Pembroke Hill Lower School Athletic Program is committed to offering a variety of recreational athletic activities to students from prekindergarten through fifth grade. Coached by parent volunteers, the goal of each activity is to focus on skill development, teamwork, and physical fitness in a supportive and positive environment.

The school values of Respect, Compassion, Integrity and Scholarship are an important aspect of the athletic program. The role of the coaches, parents and participants is to reflect and instill such values in a manner that emphasizes good sportsmanship. Every student is a valuable member of his or her team, therefore, equal playing time is given to all participants. Activities offered include baseball, basketball, field hockey, flag football, lacrosse, and soccer.
