What is WWC?
We are competitive school. We strive for greatness. The Warrior World Cup is one way that we do this. Every student at Southeastern belongs to a Continent. These groups are then broken into four smaller groups called tribes. These two groups serve different purposes.
Continent groups compete in a variety of ways to gain points for their team. Students gain points for things such as perfect attendance, A and AB Honor Roll, other academic achievements and monthly game competitions completed during our monthly rallies.
Tribes meet every Friday unless it is a rally Friday. In these smaller groups, students work on a variety of topics. Some weeks we may work on character education like empathy. Other weeks we might discuss study skills. Sometimes we even explore geography, an area of weakness among our middle schoolers.
What is the PURPOSE of WWC?
The purpose behind this competition was to address a few areas of need in our school. For example, we wanted to build a community and a team mentality among our students and staff. We also felt a healthy competition including both teachers and kids would enrich the school experience. We felt that if students had a reason to succeed, they would be motivated to try harder. Lastly, we wanted to teach global awareness. Many of our students are unaware of where they are in the world because they lack experiences. By choosing to include every student and teacher in a continent, we are able to increase our student’s knowledge of geography, culture and even religion in a fun and memorable way.
