1st Official Game to be Held in Greg Welch Gymnasium

GWG SignWeatherford Christian School is so excited to announce the long awaited 1st official basketball game that will be held a week from today in the Greg Welch Gymnasium.

Tuesday, January 20th the varsity girls and boys will take the court to face off against North Dallas Adventist and Weatherford Express.  Girls tip off at 6:00pm and the boys game is scheduled for 7:30.  WCS would like to encourage any and all to join them for this very special night.

The gym was first erected in 2008 and each year WCS has worked tirelessly and prayed continuously for it to be where the students and community could one day use it for its intended purpose.  Thankfully, last May after the school held an extremely successful outdoor concert sponsored by Chicken Express and numerous others, they were able to raise over $160,000 that went towards building walls, painting, infrastructure for future locker rooms and coaches offices, a glass entry front and many more features that they had only dreamed about.  The school was also able to purchase their first ever gym floor in 2013 with the help of several private donors and the Brands for Education campaign.  “Every time we sell a brand on the gym floor, we are able to take another step towards completing this one of a kind building.”  stated Director of Development Leslie Chalmers  “This is so much more than just another gym and that is what makes it so special.”

Join WCS and their varsity basketball teams Tuesday, January 20th starting at 6:00pm and help us cheer on our Lions.  For more information on the gym or the Brands for Education campaign, contact Leslie Chalmers at 817-596-7807.

Weatherford Christian School to Participate in National LEAD Day

TAKE-THE-LEAD

Weatherford Christian School is excited to announce that they will be showing their support for our local and area law enforcement officers by participating in LEAD.  Please read below and see how you and your family can participate to show our officers that we are appreciative of all the hard work and countless hours they give to keep our wonderful community and school safe on a daily basis.

The Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) has partnered with Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) and law enforcement associations across America on a National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day scheduled for Jan. 9.

In light of recent negativity directed toward law enforcement nationally, there is a need to show law enforcement officers that our citizens recognize the difficult and sometimes impossible career they have chosen, in public service to us all.

Can you imagine going to work each day and wondering if you’ll survive your shift and see your family that night? Most people can’t. But in law enforcement, this is a fact of life. Each day 780,000 police officers across our country put a badge on and go to work knowing they may face extremely dangerous situations. Yet, they go to work anyway. Being a law enforcement officer is not just a job, it is a calling. The pay is low, the hours can be terrible, and there is sometimes little appreciation for what you do. Yet, they do it anyway.

What the public doesn’t see is the lengths law enforcement takes to keep our communities safe. On average, between 105 and 203 officers die in the line of duty each year, 50,000 officers are assaulted in the line of duty each year, 14,000 officers are injured in the line of duty each year, and over 300 officers commit suicide each year. There is no other profession in the world, except possibly the military, where you will find these kinds of statistics.

Being a law enforcement officer truly is an impossible job. You must be professional, courteous, caring and yet be ready to protect the public at all times. You must be prepared to make life and death decisions at a moment’s notice. You take an amazing amount of abuse at times, but have to view this abuse as just “part of the job.” You do not have the liberty to express your emotions during many situations.

Law enforcement officers play such an integral part in our society; without them, chaos would reign. Have you ever thought about what you would do if you were in trouble – a car accident, a home invasion, an assault – and you did not have someone to call for help? No matter how much abuse law enforcement takes, they continue to do their job, and do it well. They are the guardians of our way of life and they deserve our support.

On January 9th, we call our nation’s citizens to action in support of law enforcement. Those citizens who appreciate law enforcement and are discouraged about the negative attention being given, are encouraged take time on Friday, Jan. 9 to show their support. Support can be shown in a number of ways:

  • Change your profile picture on social media to the image at the beginning of this proposal
  • See a police officer? Thank a police officer
  • Wear blue clothing in support of law enforcement
  • Send a card of support to your local police department or state agency
  • Share a positive story about a positive law enforcement experience on social media
  • Ask children in your community write letters in support of law enforcement
  • Participate in Project Blue Light by proudly displaying your blue light in support of law enforcement
  • Organize an event or a rally in support of your law enforcement officers
  • Advertise your support through local media outlets/billboards
  • Post the public service announcement supplied by C.O.P.S. to your department’s webpage or social media pages
