  • MS Chess

    February 13, 2017

    Wesleyan will now offer a Chess class for middle school students. Chess improves cognitive skills through calculation and memorization. Chess also allows for healthy and vigorous competition and encourages personal growth and confidence. Our philosophy is to create an after school chess organization that will absolutely maximize your child’s enjoyment and potential. Chess is a great place to form cherished friendships and memories. We know what it takes to be a nationally competitive scholastic chess player as well as how to create a fun learning environment for all children. Chess class will begin on Wednesday, March 1, from 3:00-4:30pm in Chapman Library. The class will continue for 8 weeks, and the cost to participate is $150. Click here to sign up online. Please contact Kelly Weatherly at kweatherly@wesleyanschool.org if you have any questions.

  • Do Something Beautiful for God

    February 13, 2017

    During Chapel last Thursday, Wesleyan faculty member, Marc Khedouri, introduced an exciting project to the high school community. Marc's hope is that the project will teach our students some important lessons: lessons about giving, sacrificial giving, and stewardship. It is also his hope that it will be a tangible reminder of God’s grace; the spiritual applications are plentiful. Marc gave each and every high school student and faculty member an envelope on which was written “Do Something Beautiful for God.” Each envelope contained $100. The students and faculty were then given the “assignment” to do something special, something extraordinary for God for someone in need with the money. It is Marc's belief that God is going to use this for good in some very meaningful and special ways. The potential impact of an entire high school community engaging in this project simultaneously could be far reaching. "I think this speaks volumes about who we are as a school, and what we truly value. We want so much for our students to learn the joy of giving and serving others. We want them to know that special feeling that can come only through meaningful giving." To read more about the project, click here. To watch a recording of the Chapel service, click here.

  • Pat McCoy, President-Elect of FLAG

    February 6, 2017

    Congratulations to Dr. Pat McCoy! She was recently elected to the position of President-Elect of FLAG (The Foreign Language Association of Georgia). This is the state organization for professionals in foreign language education. Her election to the post will bring more attention not only to middle school programs, but to private school needs as well. She will hold this post for two years in preparation for assuming the presidency of the organization in 2019. As President-Elect, Dr. McCoy will supervise the annual FLAG awards from nomination to presentation of awards to the winners. She will also serve as presiding officer in the absence of the President. Dr. McCoy joined the FLAG Board in 2005 as the Middle School Representative. In 2007, she moved to the post of Corresponding Secretary, a post that she continues to hold until this March when she assumes her new position. A long-time teacher in the middle school department of Modern and Classical Languages, Dr. McCoy has taught Latin, French, and Spanish in both our high school and middle school. Her knowledge of languages is only part of what makes her so special.
