WCPS Outdoor Classroom Receives Kiwanis Grant

A grant sponsored by the Georgia Kiwanis Foundation and matched by the Sylvester Kiwanis Club awarded to the Worth County Primary School's Outdoor Classroom has been completed. The $3000 grant was spearheaded by Ridley Monk of the local club and Tommy Gay of the Georgia Kiwanis Foundation. 

Permanent galvanized lawn edging was installed around the Musical Playscape, Butterfly Garden, and gazebo. Additionally, students removed the old wood edging from the For the Birds garden, filled in the holes with topsoil, and installed decorative edging around the bird area and the gazebo. Statuary and student-sized tools and gloves were also purchased with the grant monies.

A surprise matching donation of $3000 from an anonymous Kiwanis Club member allowed the school to purchase eight high-quality 32 gallon trash receptacles that were placed around the school.

This project continues the Sylvester Kiwanis' history of support to the WCPS Outdoor Classroom and furthers the goals and ideals of Kiwanis – service to children.

Procedure on the Conduct of Board Meetings


Welcome to the Worth County School District,


The Worth County School District invests in teacher and leader quality.  We give our students individual attention and maximize instructional time.  We are dedicated to the task of differentiating instruction and creating an environment where teachers and students are partners in learning.  We are constantly searching for innovative strategies for integration of technology into the curriculum.  We continue to find the best intervention strategies that support student learning.


As educators, we will ensure that all students emerge from school ready for the extraordinary century that lies ahead.  We will work diligently to develop our student learning power in order for our students to become resilient and resourceful citizens.


We look forward to serving each of you during the upcoming 2014-2015 school year.


Educating the whole child,

Kay S. Mathews



Intradistrict Transfer Option

The Intradistrict Transfer Right does not apply to any Title I school in our District since Worth County Schools has only one elementary, middle and high school.
