Alumni Celebrate Their Seniors
Both Varsity basketball teams celebrated Senior Night in February. These WCS alumni parents were on hand for the celebration!

First Basket!
As Headmaster of WCS, it makes sense that Mr. Engbers had the honor of sinking the first basket in the new gym. Be sure to visit the WCS Facebook page often for construction updates.


Congratulations to Wheaton College Junior Abby Epplett (WCS class of '14)! Not only was she crowned the New England Division III champion in the 600-meter run earlier this month, she also broke the school record with a final time of 1:35.71. 
The Annual Spring Auction will be held on Friday, March 31st. The Auction Committee is very excited to host the event this year at Pleasant Valley Country Club. The evening will include a selection of international dishes, a cash bar (beer and wine), silent auction items, and our always exhilarating live auction!

Rise Up & Build
We have reached over 94% of our Rise Up & Build goal. Now is the time to Rise Up and complete this project by having a seat! You can help complete the construction of our Performing Arts Center and Fieldhouse by making a donation that links a favorite Bible verse, your name, or the name of a family member or a friend in perpetuity with the life and work of WCS. Naming opportunities begin at $200. Please contact Adam Meyer, Director of Advancement, or click below for more information.
Have A Seat!
On the evening of January 26, 2017, at Nuovo Restaurant in Worcester, WCS took time out to thank a significant group of contributors to the Rise Up & Build Campaign. This important group of donors, known to us as Builders, includes parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends. Our goal was to acknowledge them for sharing extraordinary gifts of talent and financial resources to help make the project possible. After reading 1 Corinthians 3:10-17, Director of Advancement Adam Meyer thanked the group saying, “In my career of multi-million dollar campaigns at several national institutions, this level of joyful community response is unprecedented. Thank you for being a Builder in this project, laying the foundation for future generations of WCS students.” After additional remarks, the group was entertained during dinner by WCS chamber players. While we enjoyed our dessert, WCS teacher Matt Genese, and Kim Gentry Meyer performed original songs by Meyer, including Rise Up & Build, and Help Another. Our Builders were also were also given the opportunity to preview an inspirational video of the Rise Up & Build topping off ceremony (click here to  download). Feedback to the evening was very positive. One donor shared, "Great video and a great night. It was very uplifting."
