Campus Clubs & Programs

  • Participation in school clubs is a part of an elementary student's educational journey. These clubs offer young minds a myriad of benefits that extend beyond the classroom. From fostering teamwork to nurturing passions and hobbies, engaging in extracurricular activities provides students with valuable life skills.

    Through clubs, children can develop social and leadership skills, make lasting friendships, and explore interests that might shape their future. Furthermore, it instills a sense of belonging and school pride, enhancing their overall educational experience.

    At Meadows Elementary, we encourage our young learners to join clubs because we believe that participation goes hand in hand with personal growth and academic success. So, let's inspire our elementary students to explore, learn, and grow through the exciting world of school clubs!

    Clubs and programs may vary per school year.

      Club USA

      • To support your child, we have a club for students whose family members are deployed. This is called Club USA and we address issues that occur when a family member deploys or attends training away from home for a few months or more.

        Typical points for discussion may include:

        • All About Me
        • Anger
        • All About My Parent
        • Worry
        • Where is My Parent?
        • Citizenship
        • My Family
        • Friendship

        Club USA is for ALL grade levels and meets each month at times determined by grade level teachers and counselors to ensure that important class instruction is not missed. A student may join at any time during the year once the family member deploys. Please contact our counselors or the front office if you or another family member is deployed and you would like for your child to join Club USA. We look forward to working with your child. If you have any questions, please call us at 254-336-1870 or email Ms. Wetzel at
