Technology Clubs at WCA

Unless you stop by room 322 one afternoon or remember the email announcements at the beginning of the school year, you might not know that WCA has active Middle and High School technology clubs.  These have been meeting for several years and have introduced students to many different areas of technology. My own technology interests (which led to a degree and then a career) began in High School. Yes, believe it or not, there were computers even way back then!

Counting Every Blessing - Student Blog

The following blog post was written by WCA 10th grader Abby Carr and was the winning entry in our recent competition.

Under the gentle rays of the sunrise, the world around us is bathed in an ethereal, golden glow. Copper and tangerine hues radiate through the sky, breaking through the previous dark of night. My grandma likes to say that each morning, God paints the sky anew for us to begin our days in unadulterated awe.

Community Day for WCA Middle School

The following article was written by Mrs. Sarah Leach -  WCA Middle School Teacher

Building Student-Teacher and Student-Student Relationships

Since the start of our Community Group program last year at Washington Christian Acaemy, our Middle School team has had great success in building student-teacher, as well as student-student relationships throughout the Middle School. Community Group time is built into the Middle School schedule, occurring each Friday. It is a time for boys in the same grade, and girls in the same grade, to meet with a male or female teacher to discuss life in light of how God would have us live, treat each other, and serve one another.

WCA Students Visit New York

Mr. Brownworth and Mrs. Kay both contributed to this article.

On Friday, November 2, the junior class had the opportunity to go to both the Metropolitan Museum of Art on 5th Avenue, and the Cloisters, in New York City. In the Met, one of the premiere museums in the world, our Art teacher, Mrs. Kay, guided the students through the Impressionist Age, highlighting key works of the period. The students then had the chance to explore on their own, sketchbooks in hand, absorbing masterpieces from the Realist Emanuel Leutze’s Washington Crossing the Delaware to the Romantic Bastien Lepage’s Joan of Arc.

WCA Election Day Reading Rally in Second Grade

This article was written by our second grade teacher, Jeanne Minnick

In many ways it was a typical election rally: red, white, and blue banners were proudly displayed around the room and each participant prepared to campaign on behalf of their favorite “candidate.” But this rally was special. The participants? Our second graders. The audience? Proud parents. The slate of candidates? Books that the second graders had chosen for their annual Reading Rally.

X-Day at WCA - Learning to Serve our Community

This post was written by our Music and Band Teacher and Organizer of X-Day, Mr. Bill Krueger

During my years in Christian Camping, one particular song that was sung often, seems to make its way back into my head every now and then.  The chorus of the song states, "Love is something if you give it away, you'll end up having more." This song again came to mind as I was helping my music students understand how their musical gifts can bring joy to others while preparing them for our annual X-Day program.
