Our WCA band performed in the field show this past weekend and brought back six trophies and a first place award. We are so proud of these marching Bulldogs! But all of these accolades are small in comparison to this letter Mr. Davis received. “It was my pleasure to sit near several of the Westover Christian Academy marching band members during the 4A and 5A performances yesterday in Greensboro. Your students were incredibly polite and personable. They represented themselves and your school beautifully. They showed support for each band that performed, and when they learned that my nephew plays for East Davidson, they made positive comments on the East performance and shared in my excitement over the East accomplishments. I do not know the names of these young people, but if you ask your band members which ones sat at the fifty yard line, that is the group! I know you are proud of them, not only for their musical expertise, but also for the way they treat each other and the way they interact with complete strangers. I wish you all the very best school year and marching band season. Please let your students know that others notice and appreciate their conduct!“ What amazing praise for a group of Christian winners!!! Thank you for representing our school, our band, and Jesus Christ in such an exemplary manner.

In their first competition this past weekend at GW the Marching Bulldogs brought home several awards: 1st Place Drum Major, 2nd Place Color Guard, Best Marching, Best General Effect and 2nd Place overall in Class A. Our marching Bulldogs sounded loud and clear and looked sharp. We had a great support group in the field crew as well as in the stands. Proud of our Marching Bulldogs.
Last night, right here in our WCA gym, our varsity ladies posted a big VISAA win against the Celtics of Roanoke Catholic School! It took five sets to make it happen, but the Lady Bulldogs wouldn't back down against a solid RCS defense. Game scores were 23-25, 20-25, 25-23, 25-22, 15-8. Our record improves to 14-5 overall. There were many shining moments for our ladies throughout the competition, but one moment stands out. We were at set point and Erin Saunders ran down a ball and attempted to save the play with a pancake. The official gave us the point and signaled end of set. Erin approached him and admitted that the ball hit the floor before she got to it. Play resumed and we won the next rally. We are so blessed to be represented by ladies who treasure their testimonies more than winning! That character truly reflects Jesus! So thankful!
Love the WCA website!

STEM CHALLENGE! Mrs. Beach and Mrs. Porterfield’s class was given popsicle sticks, a paper roll, and “apples”. Their challenge was to use their thinking skills create a sturdy tree and their fine motor skills to carefully place the apples on top. They tried to see how many apples they could get to stay on their apple trees. #ThinkOutsideTheBox #STEM
