The Eagle Club is our Middle School Service Club. We participate in a variety of service activities each year. Some of our great causes include the Jesse Draper Boys & Girls Club annual walk-a-thon, our school wide can-a-thon at Thanksgiving, Secret Santa for 35 area foster children, participation in Red Ribbon Week, and several other activities to honor our Woodward neighbors, teachers, faculty, and support staff. We also collect money for Save the Children. The money collected helps to support and provide educational opportunities for seven children living in developing nations. It helps to pay for daily lunches, uniforms, vaccinations, and books. Without these things, children are unable to attend school. Our pennies and change ultimately provide hope for these children that can only be achieved through education.
Do you know who wrote "The Good Earth"? How about the capitol of Mongolia? These are the kinds of questions that the Academic Team has to answer regularly, whether at a tournament or just at practice. We meet in Mr. Prince’s Room 308 on Thursday afternoons between 4:15 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. A small snack will be served. Collaboration is necessary as teams challenge one another with competitive answers to a wide range of questions. The sponsors for the Academic Team are Mr. Prince, Mr. Lee, and Mrs. Anderson. The answers to the above questions are Pearl Buck and Ulään Batar, respectively. Come join us!
