Cook with Books Club mixes early literacy with a sprinkle of baking skills and a dash of arts and crafts! Open to kindergartners, we meet each Wednesday where students practice simple baking skills, learn about ingredients, and how to follow a recipe. By the end of the session, each child takes home their very own recipe book full of the crafts and recipes made to share with their families at home!

Wernlil's Military Kids Club is designed to ensure inclusive, quality educational opportunities for all military-connected children affected by mobility, transition, deployments and family separation. As a campus-based military liaison, Mrs. Barrett is responsible for serving as the point of contact and working collaboratively between military-connected students and their families and the campus. The counseling team attends training each year to learn and understand topics related to the transition of military-connected students and their families. All counselors assist with campus-based supports such as small group counseling and provide services to military-connected students based on their unique needs, including their high mobility and deployment rate. At Wernli Elementary School, whenever a new military family is identified by our office staff, our military students step into action. Our Military Kids Club students responsibilities include: * Giving new students a tour of the school. * Explaining the school rules to a new student. * Sitting with the new student at lunch and helping them feel welcome at our campus. * Introducing the new student to other friends they may have on campus.
Our Military Kids Club gathers monthly after school to play games and have conversation with other Military Kids. They also help plan our Veterans Day celebration, Month of the Military Family, Month of the Military Child, and Purple UP! Day. Here are more resources for our Military Families: https://www.nisd.net/district/guidance-counseling/military-families

They have various responsibilities that allow them to learn leadership skills that will help them throughout life. A Safety Patrol member should be responsible, respectful, cooperative, and helpful.
