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.

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.
