WCS Skypes with School in Haiti

Students from Weatherford Christian School held class in both Weatherford and Haiti on the morning of Tuesday, October 14th by communicating through a Skype session.  The local non-denominational Christian School teamed up with Back to Life Ministries last Spring in order to support Gilbert Christian School, a small school outside of Port Au Prince Haiti.
A team from WCS including administration staff, one student and one staff member, as well as the Weatherford Rotary Club President and a representative from Back to Life Ministries recently took school supplies, clothing and food items needed for the families and teachers associated with this school. Weatherford Christian School currently asks each of their grade levels to “adopt” a Gilbert Christian School student equivalent in age and grade that they then pray for throughout the year and collect monetary donations for, in order to meet their personal needs.  The Skype session enabled WCS students to meet and communicate with those students first hand as well as other Haitian students attending Gilbert Christian School.  Students sang and spoke in both English and Creole, the native language of Haitians.  This mission is just one of over 25 organizations that Weatherford Christian School partners with throughout the year to make a difference in both their community and abroad.

Weatherford Christian School celebrated their 2014 Homecoming from start to finish Friday night against Stephenville Huston.  The evening began with honoring the senior football players and cheerleader.  They were each escorted on the field by parents and loved ones of their choice and the emcee told of their favorite pastime at WCS and their future plans after graduation.  Air Evac Lifeteam 55 of Mineral Wells then made a show stopping entrance by landing their helicopter on the 50 yard line and delivering the game ball to Senior Team Captain Nick McCoy .  Pre-K 3 students along with 5th and 6th graders had been invited as classes of the week to be on the field for the run through of the varsity team and kickoff then took place at 7:30pm.  WCS cheerleaders even sported pink poms in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  The halftime show was comprised of announcing the 2014 Homecoming Court and crowning the new King and Queen.  The Lions football team finished strong with the mercy rule in the 3rd quarter with a 46-0 victory and just before the storms blew in.  The Lions Varsity Football team now holds a 5-1 record.
