The student body was able to talk and skype with Mr. Whiteman and Mrs. Brenner this past week.  Kids on each end of the feed exchanged songs!  We also received this picture from our travelers with the following caption: "One of the dear ladies at a leper colony.  We assured these precious people that they are both beautiful and brave."


Five awards where awarded at our Evening with The Arts.  Congratulations to Alceo Pierre and Helen Shackelford for their ability to consistently go above and beyond what the art assignment requires.  Casey Calderhead, Eve Prugh and Abby Kuyper were also recognized for their art of music.  They not only are able to retain and apply music theory but they also have the ability to preform in multiple genres.  To see photos and videos of the night, visit our facebook page.



Many of our students in the 5th - 8th grade participated in an academic rally with 6 other local christian schools this spring.  Among other awards, WCA scored tops in the bible competition and speech.  To listen to the speeches given by Halle Parks and Jayna Hoover, visit our facebook page.
