Class Highlight of the Week
Fourth Grade Loves to Worship the Lord!
The best day of the week is Wednesday when we can go to chapel and praise the Lord!

In chapel we learned how to be encouraging to others. When we are encouraging and loving to our friends, we "fill their buckets." It's important to be Bucket-fillers rather than Bucket-Dippers.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 
"Therefore encourage one another  and build each other up,  just as in fact you are doing."

Upcoming Event News!
Picture Day is

Don't forget to smile and wear your best uniform clothes on Tuesday, September 22.

Order forms will be coming home soon.

Special Announcement: 
 Congratulations West Valley Christian School for being granted a
six year accreditation term by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).  We have not received a six year term in over 12 years!  This is the highest accreditation term offered by WASC. Stanford, UCLA, UC Berkeley, USC, and  Pepperdine University are a few names that come to mind when you think about prestigious, highly academic and accomplished universities.  Of all the colleges and universities in the Western Region, only 161 have met high standards of quality and effectiveness to become accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). It is one of six regional accrediting associations in the United States that accredits prestigious colleges and universities named above, as well as junior colleges, and K-12 schools.  WVCS is honored to have received accreditation by WASC.
