Outdoor Club.
Outdoor Club is available to Middle School students during fall and spring. Led by Middle School Head Teacher Tom Fahsbender. The Outdoor Club meets after school on Mondays and Tuesdays for local hikes and other outdoor adventures. The Outdoor Club also takes overnight camping trips.

Running Club.
Led by Physical Education Teacher and avid runner Mimi Gillen, the running club at WMS is modeled after the national KidsMarathon program. All members of the WMS community are invited to take part in this program. Runners meet before school either on Pat’s Track or in the gymnasium. Over the course of eight weeks, runners will have completed a full marathon-26.2 miles! This program meets year-round and often runners participate in local running events.

Ski Club.
Ski Club is available to Lower Elementary students and up. Held at Mohawk Mountain in West Cornwall, students can sign-up for group ski lessons according to ski level. Siblings and family members are also eligible to purchase discount life tickets and seasonal rentals. Ski Club meets on Friday afternoons for six consecutive weeks beginning when school returns from Holiday Break in January. (The WMS Ski Club is not a school-run program; it is a parent-led initiative.)
