The Wellington Christian School Parent-Teacher Fellowship welcomed new and returning families to the new school year with its fourth annual Back to School Bash and Ice Cream Social on Friday, Sept. 7.
Schools like WCS that include a community of students ranging from PK2 through grade 12 are always challenged to find activities and events that will be of interest to all families. But the WCS Parent-Teacher Fellowship views the events as opportunities for fellowship in which activities and involvement can be geared to provide something for every student, family and faculty member. An ice cream social is great for all, providing a treat enjoyed by young and old, service opportunities for older students, and a fellowship opportunity for parents.
Fellowship opportunities are an important aspect of WCS. While academics are the No. 1 priority for a school, academics in a Christian environment, with a community of families where families come together to support students, helps the school impact the whole child, heart and mind. With all the challenges that young people are presented with today, these community connections are as important as the academics.
In addition to fellowship and treats, the evening included activities and raffles. PTF Chair Chad Isaacson was grateful for the many sponsors who helped make the event a huge success. “WCS knows the importance of the community and looks to partner with and support local businesses,” he said. “For this event, we thank Jason’s Deli, IM Electric, Brooklyn Water Bagel in Lake Worth and Publix for their support of the students and education of WCS. Face painting was also provided by Henny Bulten.”
