    Wesleyan Celebrates 10th Annual John Wesley Day

    On November 19, Wesleyan welcomed current parent and former faculty member Andy Cook to speak to the middle and high school students for the 10th annual John Wesley Day. John Wesley Day is a day set apart at Wesleyan to express gratitude for the sacrificial giving of both the founders of the school and those who sustain the school through their continued generosity. 
     
    Cook, who introduced the tradition of  John Wesley day at Wesleyan, spoke on the importance of gratitude, specifically how our hearts can be transformed to a spirit of gratitude at the feet of Jesus. He also spoke on how to become a more grateful person stating, "Our world needs so much gratitude. It brings people together; it unifies us. It brings us joy. So what do we do with that? How do we increase gratitude?"

  • Lower School Creates Covering for Wind Instrument

    Every year in the lower school, third graders have the opportunity to learn how to play the recorder. This year, that looked a little bit different due to COVID-19. Most wind instruments have covers that can be put over the bell of the instrument to help prevent the spread of germs, but unfortunately, those do not exist for the recorder. To solve this problem, the third grade class experimented with making their own covers.

  • Checking In: Peer Leadership Program

    With all of the changes and challenges of the fall semester due to COVID-19, one of the programs that has had to adjust has been the Peer Leadership program. The Peer Leadership program is a staple of the Wesleyan high school experience and is a valuable support system for freshmen as they begin their high school career.
     
    The program places every freshman into a group where they are paired with two senior leaders that act as mentors for their first year of high school.
     
    Pear Leadership groups meet once a week to talk about life in high school and to go through planned activities and games. Along with many others this semester, the peer leaders have had to adjust the way they would typically lead their groups. We asked a few peer leaders how the fall semester has been, and how they have kept their groups engaged while handling all the changes.

  • Mentor Groups Write Letters of Support for Care for Aids

    Once a week, high school students meet in small groups with a faculty mentor where they have free time to relax and talk about what is going on in everyday life.

    This week the mentor groups wrote letters of support to the East African staff of Care for Aids. Care for Aids is an organization that exists to empower people to live a life beyond AIDS through facilitating transformation physically, emotionally, socially, economically, and spiritually. This has been a tough year for their staff as they have also experienced quarantines and strict lockdowns across East Africa.
     
    Corrie Nash , assistant director of Christian life: service, said about the exercise of writing letters, “One of the best ways to deal with stress and anxiety is to shift our perspective, look outside of ourselves, and encourage others”.

  • Wesleyan Students Return to Campus

    After months of preparation and planning, Wesleyan School welcomed students back to campus for the first time since March 12. Over the course of two days on Wednesday, August 12 and Thursday, August 13, students returned to the classroom to receive in-person instruction. Strict guidelines and procedures, which can be found on the school website, were put in place prior to students and faculty returning to campus.  

    For students in kindergarten through fifth grade, instruction is on-campus every day of the week. Students in sixth through twelfth grade are in a hybrid model of learning that places approximately half of the student body in distance learning and the other half of the student body on campus. The students rotate every other day, so each student is on campus multiple days a week. This model will be re-evaluated after August 28 for any adjustments that may need to be taken.
     
     
    While certainly a different school day, we are excited to offer in-person learning for our students in a safe and health-conscious manner. Click here to watch a video from the first few days of school!

    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.

  • 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.

    Colossians 3:17 tells us, “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” While we are thankful for the unique gifts, talents, and hard work of every member of the class of 2020, Senior Honors Day historically has been our time to recognize seniors who have gone above and beyond in support of their peers, faculty, and the Wesleyan community. Although we could not gather to celebrate in person this year, we are excited to unveil this year’s award recipients as voted on by the high school faculty. Award recipients are listed below in the order they would have been presented at the traditional ceremony.

  • 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!”

  • Wesleyan Concludes Final Chapel For Seniors

  • Distance Learning Project Spotlight: High School Math

    This season of distance learning has been a period of transition and change for students and teachers alike. In this series on distance learning projects, we will highlight classes that have used unique projects to keep students engaged while learning their respective course material at home.

    High school geometry teacher Andy Free recently came up with a project that utilized the home environment to learn more about geometry. In the project, students located an area of their home that needed to be measured. Examples included a deck, a bedroom, a bathroom, or kitchen. The students then calculated the area using geometry, showed their work, and explained why it may be important to find the area of that particular part of the house. Free created a video that showed him finding the area of his back deck to find out how much stain he needed to complete his renovation project.

    Free’s project creatively used the stay-at-home environment for a practical, real-world project emphasizing the ways that geometry can be used in every day life. Great job Mr. Free!

    Sophomore Families Benefit from Insiders’ View of College Admissions

    Have you ever wondered what criteria college admissions representatives really consider when reading college applications? Nearly 40 Wesleyan sophomores and 50 parents were able to demystify the application reading process during the Atlanta Invitational Case Studies (AICS) program this past Sunday, February 9. Prior to the event, families were provided with fictitious case study files of applicants to a sample university, which they read and evaluated. During Sunday’s event, attendees were broken into small groups and guided by a college admission professional to make admission decisions (admit, waitlist, deny) for those applicants. Decisions often seemed easy - or impossible - based on numbers alone, but attendees learned that factors such as major, geography, leadership, special talents, and rigor all play a key role in helping colleges make admission decisions and shape a class. With a better understanding of how applications are reviewed, students will now be able to meaningfully think about their own academics, activities, and involvement.

    This winter there are several amazing after school enrichment classes being offered in the lower school. See below to learn a little bit more about one of them being taught by pre-first teacher Laura Jensen! Click here to see all enrichment class offerings. 

    What is Art with the Masters?
    Art with the Masters is an after school enrichment class where we study a famous artist each week through reading picture books, comparing and discussing their art, and then creating a rendering of one of their most famous works.
     
    What are some fun projects the kids are doing?
    This session, we’ll do pointillism like Seurat, sculpture in the spirit of Chihuly, abstract art like Pollack, make Kandinsky style valentines, and more!
     
    How did you end up teaching this enrichment class?
    This is the 4th year I’ve offered this enrichment class. When I taught first grade in a classical school in Austin, TX we did artist studies two times a year, and I was blown away by the incredible Audubon birds and Georgia O’Keefe flowers those 6-year-old’s were able to create. I’m not an art teacher, but I’m able to help the students study a famous work and do their own interpretation of it!
