From the moment students step on campus, the Wesleyan mission statement is instilled in them through the actions of teachers, administrators and peers. The Statement, “To be a Christian school of academic excellence by providing each student a diverse college preparatory education guided by Christian principles and beliefs; by challenging and nurturing the mind, body and spirit; and by developing stewardship in our changing world.”
After the bell rings marking the end of the 2nd period class on Friday, the student body disperses into their clubs and activities. During this time, students from different grade levels and faculty share time together doing activities they enjoy. English teacher Dawson Zimmerman said, “Club time is the time in my life where I feel most alive.” For Ping-Pong Club sponsor Dustin Wolf, “During club time, thinking stops and doing begins.” This year, there are several returning clubs and activities as well as new clubs that students can join.
This year, Zimmerman is sponsoring the Creative Writing Club, which is a low-commitment club anyone can join. Zimmerman said, “many of our most devout members never even show up.” Whether you are passionate about English or not, “Creative Writing is a club for all people.” Some activities students do is “write creative things, prose and poetry, for no particular reason.” One thing Zimmerman wants students to know is that they “should join this club because we are all meant to write creatively, even if we’re terrible at it.”
