How many apples can you stack?!? Today Mrs. Beach’s class had a STEM challenge!! First they had to create a tree... next they had to carefully place apples on our apple tree! This was a fun way to practice a steady hand and build those pinching muscles! Both of these skills are so important for writing!

We are thankful to be a part of her Bulldog years and look forward to cheering her on with SEU Fire Volleyball. Great job Dani!
My heart is full today! Seeing my K4 loves learning and growing in academics at home! Learning can happen anywhere with any materials you have! You can learn by finding letters or words around the house, practicing writing letters/numbers/blends in shaving cream or counting sticks and sorting by size! Remember.. learning should be FUN!
7th graders Holly Hutcherson and Anne Rylee Adkins FaceTime while completing a group devotional on the Bible app. They were challenged to do something new to stretch their brain or connect with friends in a different way by one of their teachers, and this is what they came up with! We love how our WCA students are pulling together and still connecting during this challenging time.

We use a hair dryer to blow a feather and ping pong ball up on the air. We made parachutes to test in the wind. Our soldiers that are tied on them are to remind us to PRAY for our troops
