Clubs

Overview

Book Club

Book club is where readers come together to discuss books in an informal setting. Students can enjoy a kind of community-building experience by meeting with friends to choose, read, and discuss books together. The meetings can come to life with discussions, arts and crafts, and activities.  Come read – then live the experience…sail a tall ship…journey to a tea garden…help choose the next book — the next adventure.

Spartan Club

Spartan club encourages students to become involved with their communities.  Through STEM based activities, student learn to assess the needs of both school and home communities and devise solutions.  In 2017-2018 they decided to work on their school community by looking into campus wildlife.  Through research, they found out what type of habitat was best for the sparrow population and then built 12 new homes for them.  They also planted a garden and flowers for our humming birds and bees.  The Spartan Club connected with the Morrison Creek Revitalization Project in 2017 as well and once they learned the needs of the project (integrating community and creek habitat), they started community outreach through a social media campaign, made and presented power point presentations to ALL Will C. Wood science classes, and were involved in the creek clean up and visioning processes.  

Spartan Club meets every other Wednesday in room 206 after school.
