Happy Feet is a morning fitness club open to all Weaver Students. The club meets Friday mornings on the track in the Fall and Spring. Students work to improve cardiorespiratory fitness through walking, jogging, and running. The club also participates in several community runs together throughout the year.
The Weaver Elementary “K kids” club is sponsored by a local Kiwanis Club and is a student-run community service and leadership group for students in grades 1 – 5.
The Kiwanis organization also sponsors middle school “Builders Clubs” and high school “Key Clubs” in our area. Although there are “K kids” clubs world-wide, our school club is the first one to be established in Chesterfield County Public Schools and has grown rapidly since it was established at Weaver in the spring of 2011.
Our school K kids club meets once per month on Wednesday mornings before school in the cafeteria and is sponsored by our school counselor Liza Becker. Club activities are also coordinated with our PTA outreach program. Students elect their own board of directors and develop the service projects that they will carry out during the school year. Some projects that we have completed in prior years include participation in the Puritan Cleaners Coats for Kids drive, making pet treats for the Richmond Animal League, decorating pumpkins to be distributed to various organizations, and raising over $5,000 to be able to pack meals for the Stop Hunger Now organization.
All fourth and fifth grade students are encouraged to participate in Miler’s Club. Students are invited to walk laps around the track during their regular recess time. The number of laps walked is recorded by parent volunteers, and awards are given for those who walk the most miles.
The Weaver Enrichment Program is sponsored by our PTA and is an after-school five-week event. Check here in November for a listing of courses offered. Classes meet once per week for five weeks beginning in February. Courses include such things as Karate, Science for Kids, Lego Engineering, Cartooning, and much more!
