  • A Message to the Community From the Head of School

    As a white male, in spite of my strong feelings on the subject, I often feel inadequate to speak intelligently on issues regarding race in our country. But I will not be silent any longer. What we are currently witnessing in our nation goes well beyond a conversation on race relations. This is about justice. This is about what is right. This is about our mission as a Christian school.

  • Middle and High School Iron Wolf Awards

    This week we want to pause and recognize a number of students who have contributed to our Wesleyan community in a variety of ways.
     
    Today, we honor and celebrate our students who have earned the distinction of Iron Wolf. The Iron Wolf Award is given annually to students who participate in three seasons of after school arts and/or athletics activities. Participation in these activities is an absolutely critical part of the Wesleyan School model. In order to provide the range of opportunities that schools two or three times our size offer, we must rely on students who are willing to be involved in the life of the school beyond the classroom and who are willing to try new things and be stretched outside of their comfort zone. In addition to our extra-curricular model, this type of broad participation is beneficial both developmentally and experientially. This is a great time in life for students to try new things, to resist the cultural push to specialize in one area, and to embrace the positives of being well-rounded. When students and families are on our campus for practices, events, concerts, games, and competitions, it fosters a strong sense of community, which is one of the great strengths of our school. As students get older, being an Iron Wolf becomes more challenging as course loads become more difficult, extended seasons begin to overlap, and life simply becomes more complicated.
     
    We want to thank these students and their families for their steadfast commitment and dedication to being involved in the life of the school.
     
    Please watch the special messages below:
     
    See the list below for our Iron Wolf recipients for the 2019-2020 school year.

  • Distance Learning Spotlight: Sixth Grade Math

    Middle school math teacher and sixth grade girls chair Laura Siron took an innovative approach with her math class as she is teaching her students about triangles. She turned her dining room into a courtroom setting and put triangles “on trial” to see whether they were congruent or not congruent. The students collected the evidence before the trial and then took turns being lawyers or witnesses to talk about why the triangle should be congruent or not congruent. See below for videos explaining the project!

  • Distance Learning Project Spotlight: Middle School Physical Education

    During distance learning, physical education has also adjusted to an online format. Sixth grade chair and P.E. teacher Justin Krueger took some time to explain how he is approaching P.E. for his students.

    “For P.E., we have been providing our students body-weight workouts they can do at home through a program called TeamBuildr. It allows the students to complete questionnaires and surveys about their nutrition, sleep, and progress on the exercises. We can also track all of those answers in real time.”
     
    “Additionally, each P.E. teacher has made multiple demonstrations and/or challenge videos for the students which provide them with activities that can be done at home. This promotes staying active and competitive, whether it be by themselves or with a family member.” (See below for videos):

    “Then, we are doing live class check-ins with students to see how they are doing and provide coaching cues and pointers for their workouts during. We have also had some students stop in for office hours to clarify things about the workout and techniques, or just to catch up!”
