3rd Grade S.P.I.C.E. Club

(Students Participating in Character Education)


The S.P.I.C.E. Club at Waccamaw Elementary School is for all 3rd grade students. The purpose of the S.P.I.C.E. Club is to help fulfill the mission of WES by providing activities that help students become respectful and caring citizens. The activities focus on character building and service learning.


S.P.I.C.E. Club Patrol

These students serve to assist each morning as greeters, door holders, and hall monitors.  They wear S.P.I.C.E. Club Patrol vests and are stationed at the front and back doors (to open the doors and greet students and staff) and also in the hallway to help monitor movement.  These students are nominated by their homeroom teacher for demonstrating good character in the classroom.  Parent permission is required for participation.


Service Learning Projects

A part of the S.P.I.C.E. Club is to participate in service learning projects. Service learning actively engages participants in meaningful and personally relevant service activities that will help others and develop a sense of caring.  As students take part in service learning projects, they learn to take control of their learning, develop leadership skills, and take their places as valuable, caring, decision-making members of the community. Opportunities for participating in sevice leaning projects will be provided for the students at WES.  Most of the projects will be completed during the students' guidance classes during their special area time. The S.P.I.C.E. Club encourages support for all of the school-wide projects that may occur during the year.  Examples include: United Way, PTA fundraisers and events, Thanksgiving Food Drive, Holiday Greetings for Heroes, Jump Rope for Heart, March of Dimes, and other school and community projects that may arise during the year.
