One of our players told me before we started “Coach this is the best day of my life, my first basketball game!” Our job is not so much to teach X’s and O’s but to make sure that love of the game never wavers as they get older. We took the L today but played hard and never gave up!!!

In between classes yesterday, I was walking down this hall behind two high school girls when I heard one of them say to the other with completely sincerity, "I'll be praying!" Hearing something like that in contrast to what I would likely hear in any other high school hallway makes all the difference. ❤
During this Advent season, hope, love, peace, and joy are our focus. Today the sweet 3rd graders in Mrs. Owen's class left me a lovely note, bringing me great joy. I later heard they did this during their free play time. I am always grateful for these random acts of kindness. It is a gift to care for the students at WCA!

Spanish students love invoking their “special power” as the Cantaninja whenever their name is drawn from the class bucket. The Cantaninja has the power to stop whatever the class is doing at the moment, just long enough to choose one of the class songs (in Spanish, of course). The students enjoy it and it provides a brain break, but keeps them in the target language.

Fun Friday in K4! For their camping theme Mrs. Beach and Mrs. Porterfield’s class made a yummy dirt and worm treat! Learning is not just memorizing ABC’s and 123’s. Learning takes place through hands on tasks, following directions, and having fun meaningful experiences! WCA Preschool strives to provide their students with fun meaningful experiences which will develop the LOVE of learning at a young age! Our goal is for that LOVE of learning to be carried on into elementary, middle school and beyond!
Teamwork in K4! Preschool is so much more than simply learning your letters and numbers. This is an important time to develop fine motor skills to become successful writers, to have experiences with different types of materials to develop creative thinking skills, and to be given many opportunities for little ones to work together to develop important cooperative learning skills! Here, Mrs. Beach and Mrs. Porterfield’s class had to work with a partner to complete a number puzzle! Yay for friends and working as a team!!
