Westminster Christian Academy Opelousas Elementary welcomes you to our 2016-2017 school year! We are busily preparing for our grand adventure as we begin to set up classrooms, call parents, gather textbooks, and plan out the new year here at WCA! The ball is rolling for our athletic programs, physical education, reading, and keyboarding. There are several wonderful changes coming up that we are looking forward to.
This year our elementary fall athletic program includes: football, volleyball, and archery. Some of the clubs that are continuing this year are 4-H and mission team. Two new clubs include student council, 4th-6th grade choir, and we are working on a garden club. It is a blessing to have many teachers who are ready to volunteer to work with your students in extracurricular activities. We welcome anyone who would like to come join us!
The academic side brings a few changes in reading, physical education, and keyboarding. Reading this year will be 60 minutes in 4th-6th grades. Taking the place of SPECS logs the students will need a spiral notebook and the books assigned to their grade, which you can purchase at the bookstore during Open House. Each student will need to have the same book so they can all be on the same pages at the same time when reviewing and spending time collaborating one with another. Also, you can print an order form off the website, send it to WCA, and the bookstore will fill your order and send it to your child’s homeroom teacher.
This year Physical Education will be everyday for thirty minutes (except for 6th and 3rd grade-4 times per week). This will enable WCA to build an elementary PE program with classes of 26 or less. Each homeroom will get to have their own PE class with Coach Ensminger as the designated elementary PE teacher. We are looking forward to this new schedule for the students. We are also adding keyboarding to students 1st-4th grade this year. They will be able to take keyboarding in the Library with Miss Mills for thirty minutes once a week.
May the Lord Bless You and Keep You,
