Our sweet Kindergarteners went to the pumpkin patch today! They decorated cookies, heard a story, painted pumpkins and went on a hay ride. They heard about how all the pumpkins they saw started as tiny seeds and God grew them into big, beautiful pumpkins. What a fun way to learn that God has a plan for each on of their lives!
Monday evening was the fall orchestra concert! We are so proud of these amazing 4th-8th graders. They have worked so hard and glorified God with the gift of music. We love seeing all their hard work pay off during their concert. Thank you Mrs. Ostlund for training them so well!
Yesterday, we had the exciting opportunity to watch a production of Tom Sawyer by the Windy City Players. The 3 actor show was 45 minutes long and was a fun way to hear this classic tale. What a fun surprise for our WCS wildcats!
Our 3rd graders have been hard at work learning about maps and this amazing world God created. This week they took a “trip” to Oxford, England! Dr. Locke, Mrs. Locke’s husband, is taking classes at Oxford and Facetimed our students to answer some questions. We love this activity because Mrs. Locke incorporated all the core classes! The students used math to calculating how many miles Dr. Locke traveled and mapped his trip. They worked on their science skills by studying the weather in Oxford and England. Then, to work on social studies, they asked Dr. Locke wonderful questions about life in England. These questions ranged from transportation to food to what life is like for kids going to school in England. They recorded all his answers in special notebooks. What a wonderful experience for our students and a creative way to “travel” the world!
This week our middle school students have been busy putting the scientific method to work! They have been using skittles, eggs, and vinegar to learn about osmosis. We love seeing these kids learn about God’s world through hands on activities. Keep experimenting Middle School!
Tomorrow, Thursday, October 4th, WCS will participate in Bring Your Bible To School Day! On this day, thousands of students across the whole country share God’s hope and celebrate religious freedom by doing something simple, yet powerful: They bring their Bibles to school and talk about it with friends! We are so excited to join in this awesome experience. Can’t wait to see all our Wildcats with their Bibles!

Today, WCS participated in See You At The Pole! All of our students took time today to gather around our amazing flag pole and pray for our school, city and nation. We love hearing these sweet students present their requests to the Lord.
