Activities

Don’t underestimate the importance of having fun participating in school activities. Some of the best times and memories students have are the experiences of belonging to a club or participating in an after school activity. Clubs and activities are important to join just for the enjoyment that they will bring to most students, but they also allow the students to more easily make friends because the groups are small and they get to be themselves!

Clubs and activities provide students with many positive experiences that help them to become well-rounded individuals who are ready for college or the workplace. It helps students to become active in their school and to feel a connection the school and to others. It provides a sense of pride and school spirit and it is a positive influence on our youth today. There is something for everyone! Get involved!

Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) is a family and community engagement educational initiative that provides positive male role models for the students in an educational setting. A Watch Dog can be fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, and other father figures who serve at least one full day at WES during the school year.

If you are interested in volunteering as a Watch DOG, use the link provided to sign up. Watch Dog Sign Up

We have shirts you may borrow and return on your special day, but you can also purchase your own shirt using this link.

WES sponsors a service club known as PAWS. It stands for Peers Actively and Willingly Supporting our community. Two students from each 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classes are chosen as representatives. The club facilitates service projects on local, national, and global levels. Examples of projects include buying chickens for an African orphanage, Walk for Crohns and Colitis, Coats for Kids, Pennies for Patients, Hurricane Relief … and many more. The PAWS reps are responsible for disseminating information about projects to their homeroom class and an assigned buddy classroom. Posters to advertise the service project are created by PAWS reps and displayed throughout the building. Information about current service projects is also sent out in the electronic messages from the principal.

Safety Patrol Officers at Woolridge Elementary are made up of 5th graders chosen by their teachers to help keep students of our school safe. They monitor behavior both on the bus loop and in the hallways. These students should be role models for the rest of the school.

The Woolridge Running Club is designed to expose Woolridge Elementary students and their families to long distance running, while providing a sense of community, and promoting healthy, active choices outside of school. Students should be dropped off in the bus loop at 8:20 am. To participate, please sign up prior to attending. Use this link to sign your child up to participate. All grades are welcome and parents are welcome to join or stay to watch. For questions, please contact Whitney Hendrix at wesruns4fun@gmail.com.
