WCS Letter & Survey from the Chairman of the Board

Dear W.C.S. Parents:

We are enjoying another great school year at Weatherford Christian School.  As you know, we have an excellent group of Christian administrators, faculty, and staff serving you and your students at W.C.S. this year.  Just as Christ as a boy grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man, everyone at W.C.S. is working together to help your children grow academically, physically, spiritually, and socially.  On behalf of the Board of Directors, we want you to know how much we appreciate you entrusting your students to us on a daily basis, and we all are diligently working to help them obtain the best Christian education possible.

The past few years Weatherford Christian School has been in the midst of major changes.  Only two years ago we reached the milestone of graduating our first class of seniors.  At the same time, we were able to move the secondary students out to our new campus.  As we added grades every year, that meant hiring new teachers and developing new curriculum.  Overall, this major time of change has gone relatively smoothly.  Your Board of Directors now feels like it is time to take a close look at where we have come from, where we are now, and especially where we are going in the future.  We are living in some very exciting times at W.C.S., and as a board, we believe the school is on the brink of really “taking off” and glorifying God in a great way in the coming years.

We have recently added some new board members who are bringing a renewed energy and vision to the school.  One of our board members, Bill Ford, is spearheading a drive for us to do some major planning as we head into this new decade.  To begin this process, we want to put together a comprehensive “strategic plan” which will map out what we want to accomplish in future years and a step by step process of how we will achieve the goals we set for the school.  An important first step in this process is getting feedback and opinions from you our parents.  You better than anyone else can tell us what we are doing right and areas where we need to improve.

Therefore, we ask that you please take the time to fill out the attached survey.  It will not take you a lot of time to complete, but yet it is fairly comprehensive covering nearly all areas of the school.  Also, at the end of the survey is a place for you to give personal comments concerning any areas you would like to give us more input.  Note that the survey can be anonymous if you so desire.  The Board of Directors has a retreat scheduled in about three weeks to work diligently on this “strategic plan” for the school which will basically map out our future direction.   Your input will be an important part of that plan for the future.  We ask that click on the link below to begin taking the survey.  Also, you can print it out, and then mail it or drop it off at the school offices.  It is important that we have your response by

Monday, November 8.

That will give us a few days to tabulate the results before our retreat.

Thank you so much for taking the time to fill out the survey, and again we want you to know how much we appreciate you having your children at Weatherford Christian School.

For His cause,

Dr. Rickey L. Harman

Chairman of the W.C.S. Board of Directors
