Early Childhood Programs at West Side Christian School
To God be the glory! Our SEW (Spiritual Encouragement Week) concluded with all-school worship at Westend Church, where through prayer & scripture & song we glorified God for the gift of grace He’s given through Jesus. Praise to the Lord the Almighty, Hallelujah!

Along with the rain, the creativity flowed at school today. Art teacher, Mrs. VanGoor, prepared some fine-motor-art fun for the budding artists during this BUDs event. 🎨🖌

Hope to see you today!

Amazing foundation in the word of God! The knowledge of the word studied at wscs will sprout into wisdom and truth. If it wasn’t for this foundation I would be lost!

It is amazing how God uses education to develop our children's gifts and talents for His glory!

Let the creativity flow! We're looking forward to enjoying this skill-building time with our young friends today.

Join us in congratulating first grade teacher, Alison Groenboom. She was awarded the opportunity to attend the Christian Schools International Symposium in Washington, District of Columbia!

Christian Schools International is hosting a new professional development opportunity at Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC, in February 2018. This exclusive opportunity is limited to 30 different CSI member school teachers from 30 different schools around the world.

🎶 Hear God’s word -through song - proclaimed through the 3rd graders during their recess time. This is a beautiful example of how God uses Mrs Idelle Wagner to inspire our students through the gift of music. 🎶

West Side Christian School added 79 new photos to the album: Young Historians — with Elizabeth Bloem at Blandford Nature Center.

What was life like long ago? The 3rd grade historians time traveled to the pioneer era through Blandford Nature Center to uncover the history and used Grand Rapids Public Museum Anishinbek (Native American) artifacts in class to find out more. The students automatically started asking questions and looking for answers. The REAL buildings, objects and artifacts sure have the power to motivate and challenge students' learning across the curriculum (reading, writing, speaking, history and natural science). We also looked for clues for how we could see God in HIS-story. You could join in the adventure and discover what the students found out at the upcoming Winter in the Woods event at Blandford on Saturday, February 24.

Learning sure makes LIFE exciting! This week the outdoor learning spaces transformed into an Olympic experience AND a schoolyard sugarbush. 5th graders were out making content connections to the #WinterOlympics2018 and this sweet sign of the season happened. WSCS's Nature-based Preschool students tapped the nature preserve's Sugar Maple Trees. #MapleSugaring #KidsinNature

The following students' work was accepted into the Michigan Art Educators Association Juried Art Show at the Grand Rapids Art Museum. Congratulations to Heidi Thomasma, Haidyn Ritsema, Cole Schmidt, Drew Verbeek, Jaycee O'Neill and Natalie O'Rourke. What a beautiful work!

Join us tomorrow at BUDS- a fun, free program for 0-5 year olds.

This is one energized, intrigued and motivated young scientist. Students sure do love learning through our hands-on FOSS science. #stem #NGSS

Venture out and travel back in time to explore the daily life of a pioneer! Warm up in Blandford Nature Center's Robinson-Khutic Log Cabin, it will be open for viewing. 3rd grade students will be volunteering as historical interpreters, bringing the past to life for visitors through imagination and play. All visitors are welcome. (FREE with BNC membership or paid admission)

We're looking forward to welcoming all prospective families and current 5th grade families to find out more about what makes West Side Christian Middle School special. Both students and parents will preview our middle school offerings - highlights of our Christ-centered academic and extra-curricular offerings, and learn about unique characteristics of our middle school program. We're looking forward to welcoming you to the WSCS middle school experience.
