Welcome to Walnut Grove Christian School
Look who is going to Palmetto Boys State this summer! Congrats to Gunnar Hensley & Banks Johnson; they were chosen by American Legion Post 43 and WGCS Administration to attend this wonderful South Carolina tradition. The American Legion’s Boys State program is a unique way for young men to learn about the American system of government and politics by participating in a mock governmental system. Only boys with outstanding qualities of leadership, character, scholarship, and loyalty and service to their schools and community are chosen & we are super excited for Banks and Gunnar as they prepare to join the brotherhood of Palmetto Boys State Special thanks to Snowflake Village and Goshen Glenn Ministries for sponsoring our Boys State representatives.
What a beautiful day for the Special Olympics Spring Games. Our high school students & teachers were inspired and had a wonderful time serving the Special Olympics Mecklenburg County athletes & families.
Through the power of sports, people with intellectual disabilities discover new strengths and abilities, skills and success. The Special Olympic athletes find joy, confidence and fulfillment -- on the playing field and in life. They also inspire people in their communities and elsewhere to open their hearts to a wider world of human talents and potential.
The mission of Special Olympics is near & dear to the heart of WGCS & we are honored to work alongside everyone today!
