The Annual Fund competition ended Sept. 30 and was a smashing success! We are currently at a WCS record of 78 percent participation in the Annual Fund, up from 63 percent in 2015. Our goal was to increase dollars raised by 15 percent from last year from $179,000 to $210,000. Well, the numbers are in and our families have donated $240,000 to date, an outstanding 33 percent increase! And, many families are still expected to make a financial gift prior to the June 30 fiscal year deadline.
Check Out the Community Disaster Relief Resource Board
WCS recently added a "Community Disaster Relief" Resource Board to the website, behind login. This Board provides parents and students with information and links to organizations that are coordinating efforts to help those affected by a recent natural or man-made disaster, such as Hurricane Matthew.
The College and Career Center is a hotbed of activity year-round, but especially during college application season! This "incredible" crew recently hosted all junior families for the Miami Invitational College Fair, and the very next night hosted more than 400 high school and middle school families for "Winning the College Admissions Game" with renonwned expert Peter Van Buskirk.

Westminster Christian School's mission of 'Empowering Learners, Inspiring Lives, Preparing Hearts," is at the center of all that we do. A campaign across all three campuses seeks to keep our school's mission at the forefront of the minds of our students, teachers, and parents as they are on campus and go about their day. More than words on a paper, we want to bring these tenets to life in everything that we do.
Westminster's First Annual Family Reunion was a big hit with alumni from all ages. Featuring an all-alumni brunch and barbecue, campus tours, Warrior Football game, as well class-specific celebrations, it was a great weekend for rekindling friendships, sharing memories, and making new ones.
