1) The Mighty Lions Running Club is for 3rd and 4th graders. It meets on Wednesday afternoons. The club trains hard to compete in an annual 5K race that is held at our school every April. Coach Orahood is the club's sponsor. She is assisted by Mrs. Moyer, Mr. Nail, and several parents.
2) The WCE Choir is open to fourth graders only. It has membership auditions in the fall. It meets on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Drop off starts at 7:30 am and singing starts at 7:40 am. Students are dismissed to class at 8:05 am. The choir is directed by our music specialist, Mrs. Spencer.
3) WCE's Garden Club is a year-long project for fourth graders -- but all of our students benefit from their harvest! It meets on Friday afternoons. The initial supplies to create our garden, including two raised garden beds and a wheel barrel, were provided by grants from the USDA Farm to School grant program and Baptist Health. In the spring of 2019, the Conway Tree Board donated trees and other materials for our garden area, and even attended a club meeting to offer assistance. Ms. Ross, our assistant principal. is the club's sponsor.
These photos show our garden club members clearing out the raised beds to prepare for fall planting. We appreciate this crew for keeping our garden growing!
