BOARD NEWS We would like to extend a warm welcome to all the new families attending Woodstock Christian School this year. A special welcome to the Korean families. We hope that you will feel blessed and enjoy becoming a part of our school community. Thank you for your continued support and prayers for Woodstock Christian School! We pray for a blessed 2014-2015 school year! Highlights from the board: • Sixth bus route being added partly because of the increased enrolment in JK. • New HVAC system has been installed over the summer. • We continue to make progress on collecting tuition arrears. This continues to be a difficult issue to work through, but we have made a lot of progress in the past year. We ask for your continued prayers. • There are some new fund-raising projects for this coming year, one of them was the Family Feast Night, which was held on October 3, 2014. • Board and Staff enjoyed a BBQ together on September 26, 2014. • Board retreat is set for October 18, 2014 and the focus of discussion will be strategic planning.

“O Lord our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!”(Psalm 8:1) Our opening chapel on September 2nd was filled with praise as parents, grandparents, friends of Christian Education joined staff and students to celebrate the beginning of a new year. Giving God glory in faith, learning and community, we proclaimed God’s holiness. During the month of September, Psalm 8 was chosen as a whole school memory work assignment- it has been fun walking down the halls early in the morning listening to the voices of students and teachers reciting this Psalm. “From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise…” (Psalm 8:2) 186 students are enrolled at WCS this school year, a total of 96 families that are investing in giving their children a Christcentred education. It has been such a blessing to meet new families, glowing with excitement that God has led them to the day that they could enroll their children at WCS. Often with tears in their eyes, they share experiences of their children telling them stories of how awesome God is, and that at WCS

WCS students participated in the Terry Fox Run. We raised $2349.70 for cancer research! Students in grades 3-8 walked for 45 minutes through the neighbouring streets and then ran the perimeter of the school grounds. All wore "I'm Running For...." stickers and Terry Fox tatoos. We were being the hands and feet of Jesus and we are so thankful for the support given during this special event.

they learn (and are allowed to learn!) about this amazing God! Together, parents and teachers partner in giving our children a firm foundation of trust and joy in the Lord. We all look ahead to ‘wonder-filled’ times of being community together- a community that shouts out in all we do “The Whole Earth is Filled with the Glory of God!” Our school’s vision statement declares that we are a “….prayerful, thriving, energetic school community where a Christ-centred education equips our students to lead a life of Christian service.” “Prayerful” Twice a month on Wednesday mornings, a group of parents prayerfully lift the joys and concerns of WCS to God, knowing that the Holy Spirit is leading. We are so thankful for their ministry. Each Monday morning and Friday afternoon, WCS staff meet to pray over the school days, the students, the bus drivers, the families and one another. In our classrooms, offices, and Board room we come to God with praises and burdens, knowing that it is God who holds us all and guides us as we do our work. Students are taught how to pray in their classes, and it is often they who lead their classmates in prayer. So many, many parents, grandparents and friends tell us again and again that they pray for WCS. “Energetic” Teachers and students have settled into their new classes, have established new routines, set high expectations for learning and built strong support systems to help them experience success. Morale is high and there is an energy

present that exudes joy. Our newest staff member, Mr. Axel Hiemstra, is enjoying his work, building relationships with students, preparing and teaching lessons that are relevant and meaningful, while motivating students to learn. Students are already involved in many extracurricular activities at WCS alongside their regular classes. Cross- country, mileage club, soccer, golf, volleyball, drama practises for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, leadership of Bus Safety Patrollers and Students’ Council give students opportunities for growth. We have participated in the Terry Fox National School Run fundraiser for schools, service learning projects are underway and class trips have begun. School is so much more than the 3R’s! “Thriving” … through our units of study-History (Canada-the Acadian peoples), Science (Trees, Rocks), Geography (Biomes), Math (Patterns), Reading (Owls in the Family), Writing (Getting ready for Kindergarten book ), Phys Ed (Running, Soccer), Bible (In the Beginning.. God’s glory fills the Earth!), French (Feelings), Music (Rhythm and Beat through square-dancing)! Students and teachers alike recognize the links in learning, tying different subjects together, uncovering the truths that God has His thumbprint on everything in their learning. Each student has his/her own strengths in how they learn, and are often encouraged to pick activities that best help them to master concepts. The classrooms buzz with excitement as students work in groups to do their work. And then, there are those blissful, quiet times when students are bent over their work, individually completing assignments or reading a book. Professional Development is key to ‘growing’ the staff, and this past summer teachers took advantage of great online courses, courses at RUC and at other universities. This fall, under the leadership of the OACS Director of Learning, Justin Cook, using the book “An Ethic of Excellence” by Ron Berger as a guide, we are focusing on excellence- asking ourselves what do excellence in school culture, in teaching and in learning for WCS look like. Together we have set a number of goals to strive for and we continue the discussion of implementation with its successes and challenges at our monthly staff meetings, in our division meetings and in our communities of learning groups. Recently, teachers were blessed to attend a day-long workshop by Dr. Peg Dawson, psychologist and author of books such as “Scattered but Smart” in which she taught us how to nurture growth in executive skills, skills that students need to function independently. They include planning, organization, task initiation and sustained

attention, goal-setting, decision-making, and problem solving. As educators, we gained an appreciation for different kinds of learners and were offered strategies for how best to meet the needs of our students. In our communities of learning, staff are challenged to vision together with Board of Directors and school community in “providing Christ-centred quality elementary education to equip our students (children) for a life of praise and service to God.” (WCS Mission Statement) This is never stagnant- we will have never ‘arrived’, but will continue to develop each year. “School Community” This summer, the property and maintenance team did some amazing work at WCS. A new heating/cooling system was installed servicing the north end of the school, library renovations were begun, and many maintenance items were completed. Janitors spent hours scrubbing, and on opening day the school shone. A new bus was purchased and the transportation committee worked hard to set up six bus routes so that the school community could be better served in bringing children to and from school. The fundraising team held another successful golf tournament this past summer and are now planning for the annual Winterfest Auction. The Once Again Upscale Resale store hopes to re-open its doors soon, offering a light to the community, as well as lots of bargains. From bus drivers, to janitors, to volunteers, to board members, to committees, to teachers and students, to support staff, to administration, to lawn/garden service providers, to people who come in to buy vouchers and attend chapels, to those who generously donate their time, energy and money, we all together make up the community that strives to provide “a Christ-centred education which equips our students to lead a life of Christian service.” And we pledge to do it all to the Glory of our God! It is October, the season in which we focus on giving thanks… I thank God for blessing the Woodstock Christian School community with His leading as we once again entrust this school year to Him. Happy Thanksgiving! Bernice Huinink-Buiter

together racks, cleaning windows, organizing and sorting donations… the list goes on. We cannot wait to be back into the swing of things and we will be celebrating with all of you! Please come check us out this fall, we'll have lots to share with you and the great deals are stacking up already!

484 Dundas St., Woodstock (near Riddell & Dundas St.) 519-290-1200 Receiving donations on: Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. and on Thursday evenings from 6 - 9 p.m. We are hoping to be back in business very soon!! It has been a long 6 months, but in the end, we are coming out with a fresh outlook and freshened up store! We have been open a few days a week to accept donations and we are so thankful for what has been given. People have been working tirelessly to get the store ready, hanging shelves, putting

If you think that you'd like to volunteer at the store, we'd love to talk with you. It doesn't have to be a huge commitment, perhaps a couple hours a week or every other week. You may be surprised and find that you love the retail aspects of it, or perhaps you would prefer some behind the scenes. We have enough jobs for any preference. One area that we are in need of is a "handy man" of sorts. Sometimes there are just a few things that need to be fixed or looked at, and we need some someone with some experience. You don't have to be a professional, just willing and able and handy. Again, thank you for your continued support. We are thankful to God for seeing us through this "bump" in the road and we are excited to see what He has in store for us. What a story for our community, to see how we can take a fire disaster and keep our heads turned upwards. We know there's a plan and we are willingly walking forward. Join us.

THE COMMUNITY CORNER Woodstock Christian School has started out the 2014/15 school year with 186 students! These children are members of 96 families that attend 26 different churches. We are thankful to God for each child, all the family members and every church that is represented here. We plan to visit two of these churches this fall with Choir Visits. This is a great morning of worship with one of our choirs leading us in songs and the church body hosting our families. It is wonderful to worship together! October 19th we are attending Knox Presbyterian Church in Woodstock. Our Primary Choir will lead us in 3 songs! Then on November 9th our Junior Choir will lead us in song at Crossroads Alliance in Ingersoll. Thank you to Elizabeth Martin for working with the choirs and leading them during the Sunday morning worship.

Together we make a beautiful song (from a wall in the Music Room)

Inside our school we also enjoy times of worship as a whole school body. These are known as Chapel or Assembly days. Chapels are led by a variety of pastors in our area that come into our school to speak to us on themes such as Christmas, Remembrance Day, and Ascension Day. Assemblies are led by our students and teachers and may include topics like our school theme for the year, Christian Education Week and Graduation Celebrations! We welcome visitors at all of these events. As the hosts we provide refreshments when the students head back to class and enjoy getting to know you better. The dates are posted on the website and can be found on church bulletins or by calling the school office. We have an upcoming Chapel on October 9th to celebrate Thanksgiving. Stephen Sears of the Salvation Army Church will be leading us. On October 31st we will enjoy a mission focused “Sharing God’s Word” Assembly that will include some of our senior students and alumni! Both events take place at 8:30am in the school auditorium. We look forward to seeing you there!

The Boys Soccer Team off to the tournament!

SENIOR KINDERGARTEN – MRS. LINDA WESTERVELD & GRADE 5 – MRS. TRACY BULTHUIS (Teacher buddies) BUDDIES "Hey, there's my buddy", or "Hey, buddy". These are phrases that you will hear in the gym before assemblies, in the halls, on the playground, in church and occasionally at Wal-Mart. Buddies are an important, valuable part of our Woodstock Christian School community. There are many definitions of the word buddy, but one that we thought was interesting was ..."either of two persons paired off in a partnership arrangement for mutual help and protection...." Our buddy system helps children of all ages increase confidence, develop leadership skills, improve and develop social interactions, master concepts, teach and review skills, and develop self-regulation. More importantly our buddies demonstrate and receive acceptance from each other. Even though our buddies have been assigned to each other based on academic needs, interests and personalities, they develop a loyalty and a love of each other. It is so heart warming to see the older students nurture, protect and help their buddies. Often, safe comfortable relationships develop. What a blessing these are. And what a model of how Christ calls us to live in community! Our buddies try to meet once a week. This year we have played together in the sandbox, taught and reviewed letters, enjoyed books together, and explored patterns together. Our first activity was a photo booth, followed by interviews .Enjoy the thoughtful questions and answers of our grade 5 and SK students.
