and I like my friends here."

"I like learning about Jesus and having fun at school."

"I like carpool in the morning because I'm excited to get here,

and I like recess."

"I like all the kindness here and learning lots of different things."

Get ready for a week filled with gratitude! Each day will be filled with Thanksgiving fun, including a daily spirit wear theme and gratitude or service activity. In the spirit of gratitude, we are also asking parents and friends to help sustain our mission by making a gift to the WCA Hawk Fund this week.

This annual campaign has helped support the school's operating expenses each year and has always played a vital role in ensuring the school's stability and sustainability.

Why We Give

Our WCA community has helped us support the mission and vision of our school by funding unique projects. Over the last year, we purchased a new set of classroom iPads and allocated funds to help equip the new WCA Annex. We also invest in the quarterly STEAM events created and developed by our staff to challenge the minds of our students. This year’s “Under the Sea” STEAM event was one such example. Educational space enhancements, activities, and events like these would not have been possible without your extremely generous and heartfelt donations.

We are coming to you again this year asking that you look into the future and help us dream even bigger. Please consider making a donation to our Hawk Fund during the Week of Giving. If your company has a matching program, please also consider filing the paperwork for that matching gift.

We are grateful for your continued prayers and support.
