BOKS at Pine Hill

Fall 2019 through Spring 2020

We are pleased to begin another year of BOKS at Pine Hill. Due to the change in start time for Pine Hill next year, this will be the final year of BOKS.


BOKS is a before school physical activity program held in the Pine Hill gym. BOKS is run by Maura Bennett, Head Coach of the Dover Sherborn Boys & Girls Indoor and Outdoor track team.

BOKS prepares children for a day of learning and is an important step in helping children appreciate the benefits of exercise and healthy choices that will last a lifetime.  BOKS was inspired by Dr. John Ratey's book Spark. Dr. Ratey, of Harvard Medical School, states that exercise is the single most powerful tool that we have to optimize the function of our brains. Classes are filled with team-oriented games and provide plenty of opportunity for play, since the program focuses on fun!​
