Weatherford Christian School will welcome Brandon Baldwin as their new Praise & Worship instructor. Brandon is a musician and Worship Pastor currently serving at Greenwood Baptist Church. Shortly after he discovered his love for music, he began leading students in worship in 1999. He earned his Associate of Arts degree from Weatherford College and his Bachelors of Business Administration from the University of Texas at Arlington.
He has spent the last 11 years as a bi-vocational minister, functioning as a Project Manager and Regional Sales Manager for Tower Engineering, while living out his love for the Lord and music at Greenwood Baptist Church. Excitedly, he has recently moved into a full time position with Greenwood. Over the past several years, while giving guitar lessons, he also discovered a passion for helping students discover their passion in music. Brandon has been married to his wife Shayla for 12 years and has two children that currently attend WCS.
The Weatherford Christian School Student Council attended the DBU Leadership Conference on September 14th, 2016. They heard speeches on different leadership styles, and the struggles of poor leadership. This conference helped WCS student council recognize their own individual leadership styles, how to use their God given gifts to lead others, and how to utilize what they learned to help impact the school in a positive way.

Attention WCS Parents:
As some of you may or may not have heard, our sweet Kenidy Keis, in 3rd grade, is having a very serious brain decompression surgery on October 12th, at Cook Children’s Hospital. Kenidy has what is called Chiari 1 Malformation.
Once they take her back to the operating room, they will do an MRI. Once she is asleep and her head is tilted, they will determine if they will need to go in and open the dura and go inside the brain – it will all depend on how compressed her tonsils are in her neck.
She also has a condition called Syringomyelia (sear-IN-go-my-EEL-ya) which is a cyst, called a syrinx, that forms within the spinal cord. This is a big concern as well. They will not mess with that as they feel the chiari surgery will fix that issue. If not, then she may have another procedure in the future regarding that. (he will do another MRI in 6 months from surgery to check).
The surgeon has talked to Chris and Keri Keis by themselves and told them how serious this surgery is and that if he has to go into the dura, it opens up for all sorts of complications. He has tested her reflexes and indicated he sees some issues with that, but feels that is because of the fluid on her spine.
Kasey Petzold, our PTP President, has been so sweet to help design a shirt with some of Kenidy’s favorite things; the color blue, Jesus and her favorite verse ~ John 3:16, as a fundraiser.

Congratulations to the 2016 WCS National Junior Honor Society Inductees. They were officially announced at last night’s ceremony which took place at South Main Church of Christ Auditorium.
Middle school students are selected based on five criteria: citizenship, service, pride, scholarship, & character. Common requirements include maintaining a high grade point average (the national minimum is a 3.5) and becoming good citizens (by participating in service projects). The NJHS requires some sort of school service to the community, school, or other organizations.

Dear WCS Families,
Due to the wonderful rain we have received we are in need of postponing our Back To School Bash. Two of the special activities that we were planning having at the bash cancelled on us, and we are also being cautious with our new parking lots and football field. THE NEW DATE FOR BACK TO SCHOOL BASH WILL BE FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9TH.
We will have a 4:30 Home Junior High Football game against Fort Worth Academy and a 7:30 Home Varsity Football game against Forestburg.
PTP will have all our scheduled Back To School Bash activities set up prior to the Varsity football game and we will be introducing ALL FALL SPORTS teams at half time. This includes Elementary/Jr. High/High School, football, volleyball, cross country and cheerleading.
Those students who attended Little Lions Cheer Camp will also be participating in a few chants along with our Junior High and Varsity cheerleaders. Thank you for your understanding. We want this to be a fun and memorable event.
Charles Russell Bushaw, an incoming 7th grader at WCS was recently awarded one of the top honors within the cutting horse industry, the National Youth Cutting Horse Association Rookie of the Year. This award is given each year during the annual National Cutting Horse Association Summer Spectacular. He was also a NYCHA World Finalist and Scholarship Cutting Finalist. Charles Russell consistently earned enough points showing throughout the year to earn a coveted spot at the The World Finals where he finished 7th overall. He also took 6th place in the scholarship finals, which enables kids to earn scholarship money for furthering their education at the collegiate level. Other WCS Lions who competed within this competition were Will Bushaw, Madison Flynn, Kate Allen, and Addison Allen. Congratulations to Charles Russell and each of these young competitors on a job well done!
