Hey, all! It’s that time of year again. School is back in session. Now, I’m sure some students would much rather be on summer break still, while parents are likely saying, “Finally!” But, now that school’s back in session, it’s time to get back into the learning mindset.
Senior, Hannah Slota, who has attended Westlake for 15 years, seemed to really love her first week. She said, “My first day of school was great! I love all of my classes and I love meeting the new people in the different grades. I hope this year will be one that breaks divisions and brings us all together as a family in Christ.”
While there are students like Hannah who have similar thoughts, some just think of it as any other day. Such as 7th grader, Josh Miller, who said, “My first day was kind of boring and tiring because we didn’t do any work.” While it may not have been the most exciting start to the year, it goes to show, students still want to learn.
Westlake has a lot in store for students, some of which will be hard and others will be fun. Most students seem to look forward to experiencing all that Westlake has to offer. Long-time Westlake students have made it a priority to make sure that our new students feel a part of this family. And it seems we’ve accomplished that as freshman Charles Smith told us, “During my first day of school, I felt very welcomed by my fellow students and teachers.” Hearing this is exciting because it shows that Christ is working through his children and their hearts that they may show his love through themselves.
I hope you enjoyed the glimpse into the hearts and minds of students here at Westlake. Stay tuned for what we have in store at Westlake Christian Academy this year by following this weekly blog, The Eagle.
