Each school year The Woodlands Methodist School offers a variety of Enrichment Programs to all of our students. We strive to reach individual interest with programs such as Tae Kwon Do, Tennis/Golf, Spanish, Chess, Nutty Science, Robotics, Destination Imagination and the Spelling Bee. TWMS also offers Choir, Art, and Upward Sports for students to participate in after school. Enrichment programs allow students to explore their interest in a wide range of activities.
Is your child interested in stretching their imagination, honing their critical thinking skills, and having a blast with fellow teammates all at the same time?
If so, Destination Imagination is the program for you!
Destination Imagination is an educational nonprofit organization that teaches the creative process to over 200,000 students from 48 states and 30 countries each year. The organization puts out seven new challenges annually that incorporate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), the arts and service learning. Students work for two to four months on a solution to their chosen challenge. In the process, they learn essential 21st century skills such as creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and project management.
TWMS has a very successful DI program. Our school sends 3-5 teams (Grade 2 – Grade 8) to the SE6 Regional tournament. For two consecutive years our science team has placed first and advanced to the state tournament.
An information night is held every fall, the week following "Back to School Night." Teams are formed and meet twice a week, September through April.
Scripps Spelling Bee
Each year, TWMS holds a school-wide spelling bee and sends one school champion (Grades 4-8) to the regional Scripps Spelling Bee. Regional winners advance to the Houston Spelling Bee and are televised on PBS. The final competition is held annually in Washington, D.C.
Student Council is an organization conducted by students and supervised by adults. The purpose of the student council is to give students an opportunity to develop leadership by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects. In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the student council is the voice of the student body. They help share student ideas, interests and concerns with the school wide community.
Preschoolers are invited to enroll in various programs available to young children through ministries at The Woodlands United Methodist Church. Options have included Upward Sports and summer sports clinics, beginning music classes through The Woodlands Academy of Fine Arts and WOW Science Camp.
