Today our 3rd-8th graders ran in a cross country meet! Our fabulous PE teachers organized the event and invited other private schools in the area. We were thrilled to have Valor Preparatory Academy and Live Oak Classical School come participate with our Wildcats. The runners had the option of a 3K or 5K distance and they all did an amazing job. We were so excited to be part of this event on a beautiful day! Thank you coaches and keep running Wildcats!
Today, our kindergarteners are celebrating being 50 days smarter in 1950’s style! We love seeing all the poodle skirts (including on our fabulous teachers!) and rolled cuffs. These students have worked so hard already in their first 50 days of kindergarten. Not only have they grown academically but, more importantly, they have grown spiritually as they hide God’s word in their hearts and discover the plan He has for their lives. Have a rockin’ good time today Kindergarten!

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!
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!
