The second and third graders at Weatherford Christian School traveled to Cook Children’s Hospital on Wednesday, December 18th to take part in their annual service project of “Build A Bear” for the patients being treated by the Fort Worth hospital. Each year, each grade level chooses a mission project they would like to participate in during the holiday season in order to give back to others that otherwise might not receive.
The Build A Bear project takes place at Cook Children’s Hospital in house Build A Bear Workshop and students are given the opportunity to build the bear or animal of their choice by stuffing them and dressing them with the apparel that they have researched and chosen. Additionally, the children must raise money in order to pay for their bear, so the planning starts weeks ahead and students create a work log in order to create chores or jobs that they can do to raise money for their project. The minimum bear cost $10.00 but clothing and accessories are additional, so students typically aim to raise between $20.00 and $30.00 to make their bear extra special for the children. Once their bear is created at the hospital, they then pray over them and the bear is then given to sick children at the hospital in order to comfort them during their stay. The field trip has also become an educational experience for the student’s parents who attend. While the kids are busy creating their bears, the parents are given a tour of Cook Children’s Hospital and educated on how the state of the art facility runs and operates on a daily basis. WCS is proud to partner with Cook Children’s Hospital and looks forward to this service project each year.Read More
Over 150 elementary students from Weatherford Christian School took the stage last Friday night at North Side Baptist Church to entertain parents, grandparents and supporters with their reproduction of The Christmas Shoe Tree. The highly energetic and holiday festive play told the story of three siblings that own a Christmas tree farm and love to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. The three main characters, which consisted of two brothers and sister and were played by Jackson Floyd, Jace Hebbert & Madison McCormick, decide to decorate one of the trees with donated shoes in order to give them to those that are in need.
WCS decided to follow the play’s lead by asking families and guests to bring a new or gently used pair of shoes to the play, so that they too could help children in Parker County as well as children in Haiti that are without shoes this holiday season. The non-denominational Christian school is dedicated to their mission of providing a Christ-centered educational environment where children are equipped for lives of Christian leadership and service. They were able to collect 134 pairs of shoes through the generosity of others that will be distributed to those in need. The play was directed by WCS music teacher Sharon Floyd and created by Jeff Slaughter.Read More
