ES Art Students Win Wyland Foundation Mural Challenge
Congratulations to Mrs. Heetderks and her students who won the Wyland Foundation’s Classroom Mural Challenge (Grades K5-4).

In addition, Lola Viale ’30, also won the First Grade Individual Art Category.
Westminster Christian School now has two world-class sculptures on campus, the three-ring metal sculpture in front of the elementary school building and the new sculpture painted white and located in the circular driveway of the high school. Both are the result of Art in Public Places, a national program in which 1.5 percent of new building construction cost is allocated for art. Since its inception in 1973, Miami-Dade County has acquired or commissioned more than 700 works of art through the program.
Team 6855C earned the Design Award and the Robot Skills Champion Award at the First Annual Riviera Rams Elementary VEX IQ Robotics Challenge in December. Thanks to their efforts and accomplishments, they are ranked second in Florida and 34th in the nation!

Wyland's Artwork Inspires ES Art Students to Learn About the Ocean
Mrs. Heetderks' elementary art students learned about the work of marine life artist Robert Wyland. The students painted sea turtles and learned about the oceans where these animals live. Their work came together on a colorful mural that reminds us to care for God's creation and his creatures. Mrs. Heetderks created a video about this art project that has been submitted to the Wyland Foundation as part of a mural competition. Watch the video and be inspired!
myWCS allows for parents and teachers to easily communicate with one another within this private community. Parents are members of an all parent group, and may be members of smaller groups that pertain to their child's grade and/or extracurriculuar activities. Please be aware that when using the internal messaging system in myWCS, by default, all replies are sent to the entire group. If you want to send an individual reply to the sender of the message, please compose a new message to that specific person. This helps avoid large groups, or in some cases the entire school community, from receiving unintended messages. Thank you for your help.
