Fifth Grade Students Visit, Learn About Warren Area Student Union

May 16, 2024

WARREN, Pa. – Approximately 140 fifth grade students visited the Warren Area Student Union on May 2 and 3 to learn about the center and the activities available there.

Students in grades 5 – 12 are eligible to attend WASU, which is open on school days from 3 – 6 p.m. during the school year, and from 2 – 6 p.m. Monday – Thursday during the summer.

“At WASU, students in grades 5 to 12 are provided with a safe, creative, and social environment to help them develop social and leadership skills, as well as contribute to the community,” WASU Director Pam Falber said. “WASU is a non-profit organization that focuses on building on students’ ideas and creativity.”

WASU is run by students, under Falber’s direction, creating “a special and empowering environment for the students.”

During the visit, the fifth-graders visited six different stations including Minute to Win it challenges, Music and Karaoke, games, and reverse coloring.

“Many students were not aware of WASU, but they had the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about it,” Falber said.

Additionally, Falber said, a group of WASU students asked to put on a stage production. The request was granted and the student-led production will open on June 9 at 6 p.m.

“Their idea has now become a reality, and the level of creativity they have shown is truly amazing,” Falber said. “The play is entirely student-led, with one of the students directing and choreographing it. I am eagerly looking forward to seeing the final production. Students have so much talent and potential to offer, and WASU is the perfect place for them to shine.”
