THE

ADMINISTRATION

One Heart, One Mind, One Purpose...Philippians 2:2

Psalm 84:5 says, “Blessed are those whose strength is in you,

who have their hearts set on pilgrimage.” The Lord’s grace and goodness continue to bless us as we look back over the journey of the 2008-2009 school year at WCCS. With a new focus on leadership development for administration, faculty and students, along with the support of Westminster Presbyterian Church, we serve to prepare students to know Jesus Christ and make Him known. It is our passion and privilege to educate your children both spiritually and academically to become Christ following servant-leaders in their world. As we continue to fulfill our mission, we see WCCS becoming the school of choice in the area. Our desire is to be a school where students are having an amazing experience, are receiving an excellent Christ-centered education, are having opportunities to impact their community, are equipped for their calling, and are passionate about pursuing it. Here are a few significant improvements made in 2008-2009: • • • • • • • • • • •

Added Dual Credit courses to the high school offerings for 2009-2010 Installed interactive white boards with laptops and projectors in four math and science classrooms on the Catawba campus Added new interactive lab equipment for high school math and science Purchased new math textbooks for 1st through 8th grades Expanded NILD to serve students in 2nd through 12th grades Awarded 60 students with $43,550 in needs-based financial aid Reduced the remaining debt to $600,000 Renovated the original Catawba building (new roof, ceiling tiles, windows, gutters, and insulation) Improved security on the Catawba campus with surveillance cameras and gates Renovated the Multipurpose building on the Westminster campus to provide two new kindergarten classrooms Upgraded the Westminster campus playground by adding new drains, a geo-dome climber, a tether ball set, and grass on the hill area

We are grateful for your generosity that enables WCCS to have the resources to provide Kingdom education for our students and a Biblical worldview to engage this generation for Jesus Christ. With Eternity in View,

Ray Casey Head of School

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it...Proverbs 22:6

Several years ago a best selling book was written called

Good to Great which talked about how organizations, such as our school, transition from being an average school to a great one. One key discipline from this book was that great organizations focus on making sure they have the right “who, driving where they want to go.” For the past two years in the absence of a Head of School, WCCS was blessed with a transitional leadership team headed by Sandi Jolly, Educational Administrator, and John Gabrenas, Operational Administrator. They did an outstanding job of keeping their hands on the rudder to direct WCCS forward. They never lost sight of our mission to “partner with Christian parents, to provide an excellent, Christ-centered education” in the challenging seas a Christian school has to navigate.

During an extensive search, the board continued to prayerfully focus on seeking God’s will to reveal the right “who” for WCCS, and the Lord directed us to Ray Casey as our new Head of School. Recognizing WCCS has been blessed with Ray as the right “who” to drive, the board will continue to move toward partnering with the school community to make sure we refine “where we are going.”

This direction will continue to be developed with several key initiatives outlined in our on-going Strategic Plan. Two of the cornerstone principles from this plan will be making Christ preeminent in all we do at WCCS, and educating our students to achieve God’s calling for each of their lives. Proverbs 22:6 states, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it”. As WCCS continues to move toward being the great school God wants for our community, we ask for your continued prayerful partnership. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we thank you for your financial support, talents, time, and dedication to committing to an education that will last a lifetime. We have been entrusted with much and understand the great responsibility to partner with you in the eternal education of your children. In Christ,

WCCS Board of Trustees

DEVELOPMENT

AT

WCCS

The office of Development at WCCS had another busy year coordinating fundraising efforts and communicating the needs of our school to current families and friends. Thanks to the many volunteers that helped us along the way. We couldn’t have done it without you! Below is an overview of highlights from Development:

AACC Scholarship The Academic Achievement and Christian Character (AACC) Scholarship is a newly endowed scholarship that awards one rising senior with a $1,000 scholarship towards his or her senior year’s tuition at WCCS. In order to apply, an 11th grade student must have a cumulative GPA of 4.0 or higher, submit an 800-1200 word essay describing someone of outstanding Christian character, and strive to model Christ in their daily life in a way that is evident to all. Austin LeForce was the first recipient of this award.

Catawba Campus Renovation Project AACC Scholarship

We were grateful to have completed the first phase of the Catawba Renovation project by replacing the original Catawba building roof. We also replaced all windows, gutters, ceiling tiles and insulation. We hope to complete the second phase in the summer of 2010 by providing a new HVAC system for the original Catawba building.

Annual Fund Thanks to all who participated in our Annual Fund drive. This year’s Annual Fund raised over $41,000 thanks to our many generous donors! WCCS was able to meet the most pressing needs of our school by purchasing new textbooks, increasing funds for scholarships, improving technology, and adding new desks for classrooms.

High Cotton Classic The 19th annual High Cotton Classic sporting clays event was another HUGE success! WCCS was able to purchase new math textbooks for 1st-8th grades. Thanks to all who participated in this wonderful event. To find out more information about High Cotton, please visit their website at www.highcottonclassic.com.

Magazine Sale This was our fall school-wide fundraiser and the school profited $11,500 in a 2 week campaign. Thanks to all who participated. This year, the Boosterthon Fun Run replaced this event.

Westminster Cup Golf Tournament Our golf tournament was held at the Rock Hill Country Club and was a tremendous event, raising funds for WCCS and ROAR sports ministry. WCCS made over $20,000 thanks to the generosity of sponsors, players, and friends.


DEVELOPMENT

AT

WCCS

Indian Club The Indian Club, our athletic booster club, had another great year thanks to our WCCS families. Membership dues totaled over $12,000 and the Indian Club contributed over $38,000 to athletics. Some Indian Club accomplishments included devotion books for coaches, medical supplies, footballs, volleyballs, cross country stop watches, swimming banner, basketballs, baseball equipment, soccer balls and golf rentals just to name a few! They also had a work day and made major improvements to our baseball field. Check out the new banners. GO INDIANS!

PTF (Parent/Teacher Fellowship) The PTF had a wonderful year working with the WCCS community. Through the fundraising efforts of the fall festival and cookie dough sale, they were able to provide $5,000 toward new equipment and improvements for the Westminster campus playground. In addition, the PTF provided ice cream at Open House, hosted Parent Education night, provided lunches and snacks during Teacher Appreciation Week, and worked with administration to provide refreshments at “Meet the Headmaster” and “Town Hall” Meetings.

Grandparent’s Day We had nearly 200 Grandparents come out in April to enjoy Grandparent’s Day on the Catawba campus. The keynote speaker was Reverend Delbert Regier, a WCCS grandparent. Our Grandparents are GREAT and make up nearly 40% of our donor base at WCCS! Go Grandparents!

Mission Trip Over $50,000 was raised to send our students to the Dominican Republic for their third overseas mission trip. On June 7-18, a group of 25 students and 7 adults went to the Fountain of Life School in the small town of Juan Tomas. The team built a basketball court, painted 15 classrooms, taught English classes in the evening, ran a 5 day VBS and worked on a milk house. We’ve enjoyed partnering with Paul and Linda McMillan over the last 3 years and hope to continue encouraging and serving them for years to come. Thanks for all your support and prayers!

Buy-A-Brick Our Buy-A-Brick program raised $1,300 to help with the remaining capital campaign expenses. This is still a great way to “make your mark” on the Catawba campus for decades to come! Contact the Development Office at (803)328-5472 for more information.
