Parent Teacher Organization

The purpose of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at Wesleyan Christian Academy is:

  • To promote, enhance, and enrich Christian education at Wesleyan.
  • To strengthen the bonds of fellowship among WCA families.
  • To support Wesleyan Christian Academy by providing a variety of activities and services to enhance the school.

PTO SPONSORED EVENTS

Open Houses

These are held prior to the first day of school. The Open Houses are specifically for WCA students and their parents (including returning families and new families). Three separate Open Houses are held: elementary, middle school, and high school.

Faculty & Staff Appreciation Week

The PTO sponsors Faculty & Staff Appreciation Week each year and coordinates all activities related to this special week. Parents and students are invited to participate by sending notes of appreciation to faculty and staff and contributing baked goods for a staff continental breakfast held on Tuesday morning of Faculty & Staff Appreciation Week.

Early Education Center Enhancements

The PTO provides financial support for the purchase of various Early Education Center items, including classroom furniture, toys, books, playground equipment, etc. This support is based upon the involvement of the child care staff and parents in the annual Fun Festival.  Some of the funds from the Fun Festival are shared with the childcare program.

Student Service Challenge Scholarship

The PTO provides funds in support of a college scholarship which is presented to a WCA senior each spring for outstanding service to the community.  The student selected must have contributed at least 100 hours of service within the past 12 months.

Academic Awards

Academic Awards Assemblies are conducted each spring in the elementary, middle, and high school divisions.  During the assemblies, a variety of awards are presented.  The PTO provides funds for the cost of trophies, plaques, and certificates.

Prayer Partners

Prayer is a vital component of the Christian family.  Prayer builds relations and strengthens God’s kingdom.  The PTO sponsors the Wesleyan Prayer Partners Program, where families “adopt” a staff member and systematically pray for the staff member during the entire school year. 

Special Projects

The PTO has provided special support to various programs and projects sponsored within the academy, such as Art Impact Day,  Mission Fair,  Wellness Committee Fairs, and Spiritual Emphasis Week.  In addition, the PTO has contributed to the purchase of special equipment, such as sound equipment for the dining hall and middle school gym, and security cameras.  These projects are determined by the PTO based upon requests and available funding.

PRAYER

Father, we ask for a powerful and deep work of the Holy Spirit among the administration, teachers, staff, students, and parents of Wesleyan Christian Academy.  We plead that the Holy Spirit will do a powerful and gracious work in our hearts. Holy Spirit, release Your power in this school and meet the particular spiritual needs of the administration, teachers, staff, students, and parents of Wesleyan Christian Academy. May You be glorified!  Amen! 

So if you faithfully obey the commands
I am giving you today - to love the Lord
 
your God and to serve him with all your
heart and with all your soul.
