Caps for a Cure Fundraiser Next Week

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and that means it's time for our Caps for a Cure fundraiser!

So grab your favorite cap to crown your head and raise money for this most  noble cause!

It's time to capture this moment in time that is destined to become part of your family's story!

Monday, September 9th is school picture day.   Here's what you need to know:

Individual and class pictures will be taken.  For those who would like to pre-order pictures, forms are available in the office.  Order forms were also sent home with Lower School students in the Friday Folders.  In a few weeks, you will receive a proof, and you may place an order at that time if you prefer.

As we go through our days, please remember to keep the following WCA families in your prayers. Also, please email Tami Butts (tbutts@wcalions.org) with updated and/or new prayer requests.  It is an honor to pray for each other.

  • Please be in continued prayer for Kim Hardwick, WCA teacher, who has undergone treatment for recurrent melanoma.  Following successful treatment, Kim is having scans every three months to verify the absence of disease.  Her next scan is in September.  Thank you for remembering her husband, Steve and their children (Ben - Class of 2018, Anna - 11th, Cary - 8th and Ella - 4th) during this time. Kim has set up a caring bridge site where she can share information about her journey. Caring Bridge for Kim Hardwick
  • Please continue to pray for our art teacher, Jackie Kirsche, as she walks through her cancer journey. Her treatments have been very successful. She is currently being closely monitored for any changes in her tumor markers which might require further treatment.  Thank you for remembering Jackie, her husband Kevin and children Berkley (class of 2013), Sierra (class of 2016) and Hadley (class of 2018).
  • Please be in continued prayer for Brent Weatherly and his family as he battles cancer.  You can follow his journey and receive specific prayer requests by subscribing to his blog -  http://dbw26.wordpress.com.
