Members of the WCMS T.I.E. Club attended the regularly scheduled board meeting held March 9th. They were able to demonstrate their communication and social skills by sharing what being part of the T.I.E. Club has meant to them and shaking hands with each member. The T.I.E. Club also presented each board member and our Interim Superintendent with a special treat in honor of School Board Appreciation Week in Georgia.
Eli Williams shared how the T.I.E. club has taught him to maintain integrity at all times regardless of the situation. He also said that being honest is a great thing he has learned as a member of the T.I.E. Club.
Camren Harris shared that the T.I.E. Club has encouraged him to succeed in his academics and to become well-read.
Cody Ellerbee shared that the T.I.E. Club has taught him about serving and helping others. He gave an example of how the T.I.E. Club sponsored the Chicken-Q to help raise money for students and teachers who were affected by the recent storms.
J'son Walker spoke on what it meant to be a leader and helping others. He stated the T.I.E. Club has taught him how to be a leader, not a follower and helping younger children through leadership.
The T.I.E. Club is a collaborative effort between male students, mentors, and school staff with the purpose: Together Impacting Education (T.I.E). Mr. Walker, 7th grade assistant principal and Mr. Thomas, 7th grade teacher are the staff organizers of this group. The students learn leadership skills, increase their reading skills, participate in school/community outreach projects, and gain character traits that allow them to be a role model for their peers.
