Back to School
This year Winton Hills Academy took a different approach to its Back to School event. There were the traditional lunch, back packs and school supplies. But parents were required to get their “passport” stamped at a number of stations to to complete several important forms like medical history that often drag on well into the school year. The completed passport was needed to receive the food and educational items.
Paying it Forward
Winton Hills Academy Students have been blessed by the generosity of many people. An important part of their education is not only to receive that generosity with gratefulness, but to begin to practice it themselves. The last few years, CityGate Church has donated 100 turkeys to be distributed to community residents. But a Thanksgiving meal is more than a turkey. So WHA students have conducted a food drive to come up with a bag of sides to go with the turkey. Here is the result of this year’s effort.
A team of five Winton Hills Academy students won first place in a nationwide contest to write and illustrate a book about bullying. They gave their publication a creative twist by writing it from the perspective of the bully, helping the reader to get an insight into what prompted Misunderstood Micah to do the things he did.
