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.

The WCS Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive will start this week, Monday, November 4th and run through Friday, November 8th. All donations from this food drive will benefit First Baptist Woodway’s food pantry (Given in Jesus Name). This FWBC ministry provides food to families throughout our community.
The Thanksgiving Food Drive provides us the perfect opportunity to teach students about giving to the less fortunate and creates a fun competition for them, too.

2500 points – movie and popcorn
5000 points – movie, popcorn and a drink

Canned meat (1 pt)
Canned Vegetables (1 pt)
Canned fruit (1 pt)
