After School Programs
The Marin Primary & Middle School After School program offers a safe and healthy environment in which children can relax, play, learn new skills, and build meaningful social relationships. The program offers diverse activities including sports, cooperative games, arts and crafts, homework lab, drama, and more. Our goal is to balance a need for guidance and supervision with the equally important need for spontaneity and self expression. We have a dedicated staff of creative and nurturing teachers who are instrumental in the facilitation and achievement of these goals.

The MP&MS sports program emphasizes teamwork, cooperation, and a chance to learn the fundamentals of various sports.
After School Drama
Two After School drama productions take place each year, one for third-fifth grade students in the fall and one for sixth-eighth grade students in the spring. Students rehearse three afternoons a week, with an intensive tech-week the week of the production. Parent volunteers support the productions. The fall production is presented to the community in two performances at MP&MS in December. Four performances of the spring production are presented at the Marin Center Showcase Theater.
