Yesterday, our 2nd graders went on a field trip to the Dr. Pepper Museum. They learned about the history of this famous drink that was invented here in Waco. Then, they invented their own sodas and created advertisements and slogans to sell their drinks. It was a wonderful day of learning, creating, exploring and being together as a class. Thank you Dr. Pepper Museum!
Friday, March 23rd was the Waco Regional Spelling Bee at McLennan Community College and WCS sent two AMAZING spellers to compete. Avery and Hudson Higgins prepared for weeks before the Spelling Bee. Avery, a 4th grader, made it to round two and Hudson, a 6th grader, made it to round 6 which is the furthest any Wildcat has ever made it in the Regional Spelling Bee! Way to go Avery and Hudson! You did a great job and we are so proud of you!
We are SO proud of our 34 Wildcats who competed at the UIL competition on Friday! They had prepared for weeks leading up to the competition by practicing their spelling, dictionary skills, math, science, listening and writing skills and they did AMAZING! It was an honor to be part of UIL this year and compete against other great private schools. Way to go Wildcats!
Today, in front of friends and family, the letter Q and the letter U got married…. with the help of our adorable Kindergarteners! In class they spend time learning about these letter and the sound they make together. Then, Mrs. Purdy performs the wedding ceremony of Q and U, accompanied by the WCS orchestra, and declared that what phonics puts together let no spelling mistake separate! What a fun way to learn phonics! Way to go Kindergarten!
Yesterday, our advanced orchestra played in the lobby of the sanctuary for the Widow’s Luncheon at First Baptist Woodway. This was a sweet time for ladies to come together and enjoy conversation and a meal. Our orchestra played and welcomed them as they entered. They sounded wonderful and we are so proud of them!
One of our goals at WCS is to raise future Christian leaders and today the 5th graders put that in to practice with our Math Buddies program! The 5th graders worked with the 3rd graders to solve math problems through skill practice and a treasure hunt. These kids had a blast while learning. Tomorrow, our 4th graders will get their turn to be math buddies with our 2nd graders! We love seeing the “big kids” mentoring and encouraging our “little kids”. Way to go elementary students!
There is a GREAT Lands End Sale happening now! 40% off Full Price styles. Stock up on some polos and shorts for your wildcat!
This week our sweet 4th graders WERE a wax museum… yes, they WERE the statues! They each picked a famous person in American history, memorized their biography and then dressed up as their famous person. They invited the school to come to their museum. When we pressed the “button” these kids “came alive” as their character! We heard from famous people such as Sam Houston, General Santa Anna, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Lady Bird Johnson, and Davy Crocket to name a few. We all learned so much. What a fun activity! Way to go 4th grade!
We are fired up for our cheerleaders and their amazing coaches!! This weekend they took home the championship trophy at the Fellowship of Christian Cheerleaders Texas Showdown. We are so proud of them… they represented Jesus and WCS so well! These girls have been practicing so hard and it paid off. Way to go!
