The Season of Lent

Lent is the six week period leading up to Easter. During these 40 days, Christians around the world replicate Jesus' withdrawal and sacrifice in the desert. We use this time to prepare and reflect for the celebrations of Easter. The WCA Board of Directors have developed a Lenten Prayer Guide they will use to pray for our school. Please join us in these daily prayers.
This weeks' prayers are:

  • Sunday, March 31 - Celebrate the Sabbath
  • Monday, April 1 - Fourth Grade Students & Teachers (Mrs. Staude & Ms. Schaaf)

3rd Grade Visits Schiele Museum
Mrs. Johnson's third grade class visited the Schiele Nature Museum in Gastonia on Wednesday. They had a fun time learning about animals and other living things.
4th Teaches About Miracles
For our Wednesday Chapel, the 4th graders reminded us of the many miracles in the Bible. They also shared the story of one of their classmates who recounted the beautiful 'miracle' of her adoption.

Thank you Mrs. Staude and the 4th grade students for such a special chapel.
ACSI Speech Meet
On Tuesday, 11 WCA students competed in the ACSI Speech Meet in Gastonia. Each student had to deliver a speech about a topic before a panel of judges. All of the WCA participants received 'Superiors' and 'Excellents' for their presentations. These are the highest honors you can receive!!

Thank you the parents for supporting our students, to Mrs. Reeder and Mrs. Trout for the coaching, and especially to the students for participating. You did a wonderful job representing WCA!!
