Builders Club

October Update & November Preview

Welcome to our Viking family! We are so excited for you to join us.


We have started a new year with new sponsors and new leaders within our club. This has been an amazing learning process and we are excited to create even more opportunities for our WMS Builders to become active volunteers within Winfield.


Thank you to those who have sponsored or donated to events that we have hosted or participated in so far. We could not do all of these wonderful projects without you!

October Events

Halloween Costume Contest - Winfield Food Bank Fundraiser

On Friday, October 29th, students participated in a Halloween costume contest at Winfield Middle School. To participate in the contest, students donated 2 cans of food or $1.00 with proceeds benefiting the Winfield Food Pantry.


We also requested partnerships and donations from community businesses to benefit this fundraiser. Thank you to all of those that donated to this worthy cause!

Upcoming Events in November

Boxed In Event

On Saturday, November 6th, students will be competing in a Boxed in Event with proceeds raised going to the Cowley County House of Hope. Cowley House of Hope is an initiative that is bringing people together who care about homelessness in Cowley County. Their goal is to establish temporary housing and provide resources (work, food, living skills) for those who are in need.


We also request sponsors and donations from the community to benefit this fundraiser. Thank you to all of those that have donated so far. Also, thank you for your consideration of donating to support our teams.

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities for Students - November

Monday, November 8th - Friday, November 12th - Students will be voting on adopting a critically endangered animal. Our project will allow students and staff to vote from a list of ten critically endangered animals in the world. We will symbolically adopt the animal that receives the most votes during the week. Each vote will cost 50 cents with the money raised going to conservation efforts by the WWF towards that particular animal. Who knows? Maybe we will raise enough money to adopt more than one! (Project led by the Builders Club Eco-Friends and Builders Club Humane Society Groups)


Thursday, November 11th - Students from the Veterans Committee will be serving lunch to veterans at the Legion. Our school building will also be creating homemade thank you cards to bring to the event to show appreciation for our veterans and their service to our country. (Project led by the Builders Club Veterans Appreciation Group)


Tuesday, November 16th - Builders Club Officers and Project Leaders will be helping to set up the Christmas light displays at Island Park. Winfield Isle of Lights is located at Island Park on North Main Street in Winfield Kansas and is open nightly from 6 to 10 pm starting the Sunday before Thanksgiving until December 30.
