Clubs and organizations are a great way to help develop character and the skills that will benefit you in school, your career, and in life. Skills like commitment, leadership, effective communication, and being able to work successfully in a group all come from participating in a club or organization. Joining a club is a great way to make friends, develop leadership skills, and boost your college resumé.

Pelican Pals is a reverse inclusion club that focuses on acceptance and diversity. It is comprised of select fifth-grade students who have unparalleled patience and love. These students spend time in our Special Program classes making a tremendous impact on the lives of students with varying disabilities. We are so proud of the student’s accomplishments this year. They assist with the practice and participation of the Special Olympics, including Track and Field and Basketball. They also help execute a variety of science and sensory projects during their weekly classroom visits. These students are mentors, but most importantly, friends.
The safety patrols are a special group of students that have been selected because of the exemplary behavior and leadership skills that they have displayed during their attendance at Pembroke Lakes Elementary. Their duties include the following:
- Report to duty by 7:25 a.m. with their safety patrol belt on
- Encourage students to follow school rules at all times
- Monitor the students as they sit in their grade level hallways in the morning.
- Report to the advisor, administrator, or other staff members when needing assistance
- Attend and participate in monthly safety patrol meetings

Student Leadership Council
The Student Leadership Council is comprised of select 4th and 5th-grade students who have shown leadership qualities throughout their time at Pembroke Lakes Elementary. They represent our entire student population and assist our school and community in several ways. The Student Leadership Council helps coordinate our Harvest Drive to collect food for families in need at Thanksgiving. We are holding the “Give Change To Make A Change” campaign which has raised over $600 in the past years to purchase gifts for underprivileged children to help make their holiday season a little brighter.
There are also school-based activities for which the Student Leadership Council is responsible. The SLC members come up with the themes and various activities for Red Ribbon Week. The members also assist in running field day stations for the primary students and with our Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser to benefit the American Heart Association. Throughout the year, SLC provides assistance for other activities whenever called upon.
