Christmas Mission Project
James 1:27 tells us that religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. With this passage in mind, the high school Bible class is asking WHCA families to join them in a project to help a local ministry (Damascus Way Home for Women and Children) with some much-needed items. Please contact the office for more details.

Archery Tournament
Our next tournament will be held at Lafayette Christian Academy in Lagrange, Georgia. It is scheduled for Saturday, December 2, 2017, at 11:30 a.m. Please arrive at least one (1) hour early. Students will need to pay the entry fee of $8.00 by Thursday, November 30, 2107. There will be an admission fee charged for spectators. Adults $8.00, Student $3.00, and Seniors $5.00.

Christmas Party and Gift Exchange
At 11:00 a.m. on Friday, December 15, 2017, WHCA will have a school-wide Christmas party. Please bring finger foods, desserts, chips, drinks, etc. as we enjoy the last day of school before Christmas break. The school will dismiss at noon. Students will be exchanging gifts with other students in their homerooms. Please contact your child’s homeroom teacher for more information.

Christmas Break
The school will dismiss at noon on Friday, December 15, 2017. School will resume on Monday, January 8, 2018. We hope during this break that you will be able to spend time with family and friends and reflect on the goodness of our God.
