Recently, Berta Weathersbee Elementary School began a Girls in P.E.A.R.L.S. club for students in the third, fourth and fifth grades. P.E.A.R.L.S. represent the purpose of the program which is to "Present Excellence in Academics and Represent Leadership in School." In order to promote self-image and appropriate attire, the girls will dress their best every Thursday and wear a strand of pearls that they received when accepted to the program. The club meets bi-monthly after school to socialize, play games and discuss topics that cover the unique challenges that girls face.
