Community Events

Family Picnic

Rain or Shine!!

Soon after school begins the community gathers on a Saturday afternoon to spend time reconnecting with old friends and to make new ones. Parents and students enjoy an afternoon of food, fun and fellowship. There are games and activities for the younger children – the older students have fun just hanging out together. This is one of the events that builds and strengthens the strong sense of community we enjoy at WCA.

Holiday Bazaar

Usually held in November before Thanksgiving

Washington Christian Academy’s Holiday Bazaar has been a tradition for more than 40 years. You will enjoy shopping from over 40 community vendors, and many other activities!


A Scholastic Book Fair, Attic Treasures, Rummage Sale, moon bounce, face-painting, gingerbread house creations, pony rides, and other children’s games and crafts. You can also shop our Wildcat Wear inventory as well as our freshly stocked Used Uniforms.


You will also find tasty treats at the Bake Sale, sample some traditional Dutch treats like Oliebollen and Banket, and visit with friends over lunch. It is a day of fun for our community and we look forward to seeing you there!

To pull this off we rely on the WCA community to volunteer! There are sign ups for each grade, as well as general help needed, bake sale donations, and attic treasure donations. Please check back and we’ll be posting the sign-ups soon.

Attic Treasures Information

Donate your gently used items (household items, puzzles, games, books, etc.) for the senior class to sell during the bazaar. No Clothing or Junk please. Bring your items to the WCA front entrance, signs will be posted. As usual, we’ll be collecting these a couple of days before the Bazaar. Start collecting now!

Bake Sale Donations

From teacher and bake sale coordinator Michelle Wilgenburg:

Our goal is to have each WCA family bring a homemade baked good for the Holiday Bazaar bake sale. Monies earned at the bake sale (and most of the other Bazaar activities) are used to support the PTF fund. PTF uses this to purchase classroom equipment, fund programs for students and teacher training, and cover the cost of teacher fellowship events throughout the year. More details will come as we get closer to the Bazaar date!

History Comes Alive!

Each year in the spring, our Lower School students celebrate all that they have been learning in their history units and make it all come alive. Each grade focuses on particular geographic area and historic timeframe and highlights it through artwork, music, and costume.
