As we head into the winter months and the end of the year, several groups and clubs on campus on sponsoring opportunities to give back to our school and the community around us. See below for ways you can get involved in these opportunities.
Every fall, the WCS high school students do a fruit sale fundraiser to raise money for their spring class trips. This year, the freshmen and sophomores will be visiting the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter in Kentucky, the juniors will be going to Washington, DC, and the seniors will go to Disney World. The sale runs through November 15, and the fruit is scheduled to be delivered on December 3.
The fruit sale is a great way to help support our high school students, as the money raised by each student will be credited to his/her personal activity account. The fruit sale is provided by WCS, but all proceeds go directly to the students to be used for their trips. Please consider supporting one of our high school students by purchasing fruit. You can talk to a student directly or purchase online at www.FreshFruitOrder.org/WayneChristianSchool.

WCS Annual Fund
As WCS continues to experience rapid growth, we recognize the work needed to fulfill our mission through investments in curricular and co-curricular programs, facilities, and student life. Investments such as these allow us to best steward existing resources, all with an aim to deliver more for students, faculty, and staff. In the past, the annual fund has provided for projects such as Chromebooks in our classrooms, the outdoor picnic area, updated security and access systems, and new scoreboards for the athletic fields.
We’re asking the WCS community to consider joining us in giving to our Annual Fund campaign as we work to optimize towards full efficiency, delivering an even better experience for our students. You can give online at https://waynechristian.org/annual-fund/ or contact Randi Stroud at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the WCS Annual Fund.
