    Mr. Emmelhainz's World Religions class took a field trip to a traditional Hindu mandir (place of worship) in Atlanta. In World Religions class students survey the foundational beliefs and practices of the world’s leading religions. They explore and analyze what other people believe and why they believe it. Additionally, students view such beliefs and practices through the prism of the Great Commission - the command of Christ to proclaim His gospel to all nations.This course equips students with the tools they need to engage people from different faith commitments and more effectively present the gospel message to them.

    In November, 18 Wesleyan students participated in the state-wide Kennesaw State Mathematics Competition, along with 1,812 students from 126 public and private schools across the state of Georgia. Of the 1,812 students, only 147 students scored in the top 5%-10% and advanced to the next level. Two of Wesleyan’s own, Andy Yang and Angela Yang, scored in the 100th and 90th percentile and were invited to participate in the next competition round. Part II of the competition was an intense, proof-based problem set involving a wide range of mathematical topics solved within a two-hour time frame. This year, 37 students from across the state will receive recognition for their achievements in the overall competition. Andy Yang will be recognized on April 22 as he ranked 13th in the competition. Congratulations to Andy Yang for his accomplishment, especially during his freshman year, and thank you to all Wesleyan participants.

    Hannah_Graham_DSCF5260.jpg

    Wesleyan recently hosted representatives from the Owings Fellowship at Washington and Lee University and area independent schools for a discussion on the importance of academic integrity in independent secondary schools. Wesleyan students, along with students and faculty advisors from St. Pius, Mount Paran Christian School, and Christo Rey, worked with Washington and Lee students and fellows to discuss current practices, challenges, and opportunities at the Honor Symposium. They tackled a wide-range of topics, including the role of honor in our school communities, real world examples of dishonorable behavior and consequence, strengthening a community of trust and the impact of the internet on academic integrity, and challenges facing students and administrative leaders in both a large group and small group setting.

    Students Serve as Pages at the State Capitol

    senate_page.jpg

    On Tuesday, February 21st, a small group of Wesleyan 6th graders, Austin Salsbury, Jackson Murphy, Jack Thomas, and Nick Barnes, had the opportunity to page at the Georgia State Capitol, in the House of Representatives, for Representative Scott Hilton, District 95. It was a great privilege as they started the day meeting and having their photo made with Governor and Mrs. Deal. Then, they were off to their paging duties where they were allowed to enter the House of Representatives, while it was in session, to deliver notes to various representatives. After the legislators recessed for the day, the boys met the Speaker of the House, David Ralston, for another photo opportunity. As those events wrapped up, Representative Hilton took the boys back onto the floor of the House to give them a close up tour and explanation of a representative's desk and further explained a legislator's day. For their time and energy, the boys received a personalized certificate acknowledging their service, a page button as a memento, and a crisp $10 bill as payment. It was a fun and informative way for these boys to experience an interactive civics lesson for the day. 8th grade students, Jake Lundstedt and Harrison Leath, returned to the Georgia State Capitol on Thursday, February 23rd, to serve as pages for the second year in a row. What a fantastic opportunity for our middle school students!
