Our WCS Cheerleaders competed in the Impact Jr. Sapphire division at the FCC Texas Showdown and are bringing home the championship trophy! The competition was held this year in Garland and hosted teams from all over Texas and Oklahoma. This year WCS also sent a mini stunt team made up of 2nd and 3rd graders who also placed first in their division and there was an individual medal awarded to one of our 4th graders! This will be the 3rd year our cheer girls earned a trophy but what makes us really proud of these girls is that they competed in a way that honored Jesus and took His light out into the world. We also want to say a HUGE thank you to our amazing coaches, Amanda Buenger and Brooke Sanders, for their dedication and the Christ-like example they set for our girls. Way to go Wildcats!

Monday evening we were blessed to hear our orchestra students play amazing Christmas songs. Our 4th grade group has come so far since they started in August. Our advanced orchestra students played 4 beautiful pieces and taught us Biblical themes in the 12 Day of Christmas song. We are so thankful for our dedicated orchestra conductor and teacher, Vanessa Ostlund. Today, our advanced orchestra gave an encore performance in chapel for our Pre-K 4 through 8th graders. We have truly been inspired by music this week and enjoyed celebrating this special time of year through song!
In chapel today our pre-k 4 year olds through 8th graders celebrated earning over 2,500 points in the canned food drive with popcorn and a movie. Our sweet pre-k 3 year olds celebrated in their classrooms. Thank you for the food you sent to restock the food pantry! Because of your generosity, there will be many families who will have food for Thanksgiving. We talked with the students today about giving and keeping a soft heart toward others in need. Thank your for being Jesus hands and feet, especially during this time of year!
Today our 4th graders hosted Native American Day. They have spent the last few weeks researching different aspects of Native American life from the food, to the hunting to the arts. Today, they shared all they learned with the 1st-3rd grades in an interactive way. Our students had the opportunity to hear about hunting techniques, make Native American vests, and try Native American food. When our students are given the chance to teach others what they have learned we know that they truly comprehend the information. The younger students learned a lot and are excited to be in 4th grade one day and take part in teaching about Native Americans. Well done 4th grade!
Happy Veterans’ Day from Woodway Christian School! We are so thankful to our men and women who have served in the armed forces. We enjoy so many privileges because of their sacrifice. Today, our middle school students participated in the Veterans’ Day Parade in downtown Waco. They did a great job handing out candy and thanking service men and women along the parade route. We love seeing them serve and have that attitude of gratitude.
