So head on over there for lunch, or take your wildcat for some yummy chicken dinner to celebrate starting the 5th 6 weeks of school! Please make sure to tell them you are there for the WCS Fundraiser! See you at Bush’s Wildcats!
Today we had our Spring Pep Rally! We love this time as a school! We were introduced to our basketball teams, coaches, track team and then our fabulous cheerleaders lead us in some cheers and performed their competition routine. Then, we split into Dens and had our yell competition! Congrats to the Purple Den for having the most Wildcat spirit today!
Yesterday, our 5th-7th graders competed in the WCS Science Fair. This was the culmination of weeks of hard work with the support of amazing parents and teachers. We are so proud of these students! They did a great job learning about the world God created. Our students pick a topic, go through the scientific method, create a wonderful board and then present their boards and findings to a panel of judges brought in from the community. The other WCS students get the chance to come view the projects and vote on their favorite! Today in chapel, we awarded 1st-3rd place, honorable mention, and best board. All of these students represented our student well! Way to go Wildcats!
Today was PJ day for our Wildcats and they did it right! They started their morning by collecting donations for FosterVillage. It was a practical way to be the hands and feet of Jesus by giving PJs to kids who do not have any. Way to go WCS! Then, they went on to have a ton of fun in their classrooms. They sang songs, made crafts, did science experiments and talked about being a light in a dark world. This is a fun, more relaxing day for our students but it is also a time to reflect on the light of Jesus and an opportunity to serve others.
Happy New Year WCS Families!
We are looking forward to seeing all our Wildcats on Thursday and Friday! Please take a few minutes and vote for us with Locals Love Us using the link below. WCS is listed under services. Thanks! See you soon!
Yesterday, our 6th-8th grade Spanish classes celebrated Christmas in a special way. They participated in a Mexican Christmas tradition called “Las Posadas” which is a re-enactment of the journey of Mary and Joseph looking for a place to stay in Bethlehem. The students had parts to play including Mary, Joseph, inn keepers and narrators. They would knock on doors and ask for a room. When they were turned away, they would walk to the next door and sing Christmas carols in Spanish along the way. Finally, at the last door they were welcomed to enter and then had a fiesta! Mrs. Carter made the kids a traditional treat called Bunuelos, which are tortillas with butter and cinnamon sugar. We love learning about how other countries celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus! Feliz Navidad!
Our fabulous 8th graders competed in an egg drop today! They have been working hard the last few weeks designing contraptions made from household items to keep eggs safe as they fall from different heights. They invited 5th-7th grade to make predictions about which eggs would survive the fall. Then, today they tests their creations and predictions! They started by dropping them from the walking track to the gym floor below and 3 eggs survived! Then, took it a step further, and went on the second floor roof! Even at that height, 2 eggs survived! Finally, they went to great heights on the roof of the 3rd floor and dropped those egg contraptions… and both eggs made it to the ground safely! One of the safe eggs was in a box and the other was in a rubber ball, but both were surrounded by popcorn which helped cushion their landing. Way to go 8th graders!
