WRAP will have its next meeting today in media center classrooms three and four after school from 3:20 to 4:30 p.m.

“I think (WRAP is) probably just about expressing yourself,” said librarian Connie Mitchell. Mitchell is WRAP’s sponsor, but said for the most part, WRAP is run by students.

“A lot of kids help with a lot of different aspects and several kids help with each one,” Mitchell said.

The meetings are held with a coffeehouse setting in mind, creating a more intimate atmosphere for students to share their creative work. Students who enjoy expressing themselves through art, music and literature will definitely be interested in WRAP, as this is its main focus. “Anyone can be a part of WRAP, they just have to be willing to share their creativity,” said Mitchell.

Aside from regularly scheduled meetings, WRAP is also planning trips to meet authors who will be speaking at local bookstores. Students provide their own transportation to and from the bookstore. These trips are still being planned and dates have yet to be set.

Another highly anticipated event is WRAP’s Halloween variety hour, which will be held Oct. 31 in media center classrooms three and four after school. During this event, students will showcase Halloween-themed poetry, short stories and more.
