After the academic day is done, Princeton Junior School offers a variety of Enrichment Clubs selected specifically to cater to our students’ interests. These classes allow our students to further explore the arts, science, a variety of sports, and other activities with the help of local professionals in their field. Students are given the opportunity to extend their learning beyond the school day and deepen their understanding in these areas while building their skills and confidence. Enrichment Club offerings are renewed each trimester, ensuring that students can try new activities throughout the school year. Examples of recent clubs offered include coding, game theory, gymnastics, running club, soccer, and messy fun, among many others.

Calling all artists! The Wizard of Oz needs a set. That means YOU! Ms. Molinelli will be leading the crew to create the set for our Spring Musical. You will be using recycled materials for buildings, bushes, doors, and a house that falls on a witch! Come ready to get creative and messy.
This program will be held Monday - Thursday during the weeks of April 11th and April 25th.
Can't join the club but want to help? Ms. Molinelli is looking for cardboard, boxes, paper towel rolls, and CDs. Please add your donations to the collection box in the front of the school.
Please note: If you are in the musical, the fee for this club is $80. You may attend set design if you are not needed on stage!
PJS is pleased to extend the Introduction to Lacrosse Program to our students! Activities will vary by age appropriateness. The course will center around learning the basic skills and fundamentals of the game. We will incorporate our newly acquired skills into fun lacrosse-inspired games and activities! While this will be run as a no-contact program, it is very much an athletic course so please be sure to dress appropriately. (Mouth guards are highly recommended for grades 3 and up). Get ready to learn, run, play, and explore the wonderful game of lacrosse, right here at PJS!

Now that the weather is warming up, it's a great time to get some exercise outdoors. Mr. Anton will be leading a mini-version of the running club that was held in the fall session for the older students. Children will set running goals and will work toward reaching them. We will use our running trach and there will be games that involve a lot of running. This club is perfect for children who are excited to exercise and enjoy pushing themselves to reach a goal.
The PJS Student Council will continue its essential work and big decisions for our school. Some items on the agenda include making finishing touches on our school song, planning a meaningful service project, and organizing a spring event for our community. Please note that 6th Grade has priority in participation. (10 max)
Now that the weather is warming up, it's time to get outside for some basketball! We will be working on skill development, growing our knowledge of the game, and having a lot of fun playing together! Let's focus on fundamentals, endurance, and having fun! Both beginners and experienced players are welcome to join. Mr. Anton has coached basketball at many levels from 3rd grade through high school.
Lisa Kasabach is the director of our Extended Day Program, a separate program from the Enrichment Programs. If your child needs to stay beyond the end of their Enrichment Program and they are not signed up for the Extended Day Program, you must contact Lisa Kasabach. Please note: due to covid protocol, there is limited space in the Extended Day Program. If they are able to stay, there is a drop in fee of $30 and your child must be picked up by 6:00pm. The Emergency Contact form must include the names of all adults who are permitted to pick your child up from school. In case of emergency, the Extended Day Program may be reached at 609-924-9175. In the past, we have been able to accommodate emergency drop-ins, but with COVID guidelines, we are requesting that drop-ins sign up by Thursday afternoon for the upcoming week so we are able to plan for staffing and snacks.
If you need to contact the Extended Day Program during after school hours, please call 609-924-9175. For questions or more information regarding the Extended Day Program, contact Lisa Kasabach at LKasabach@princetonjuniorschool.org
