Wednesday Academy happens one hour a week while teachers are gathering for their professional development time. Volunteers and after-school staff lead students in a variety of activities that foster creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, and social-emotional development. This can take shape in many ways. Students have learned how to make their own origami, had discussions about positive social influence in their school and the community, and are currently writing and producing their own workout videos! Every volunteer brings something new to the program and it's always changing, which makes it both educational and fun!
Interested in helping out? Volunteers can commit for just one Wednesday slot or teach a grade all the way up to the rest of the school year! They are also not limited to only working with one grade if their idea can stretch to other age groups. We are blessed to be able to have this time dedicated to these often pushed aside learning goals and activities. To CWSCS, they're just as important as learning math or science and are essential parts of a holistic Christian education.
