Congrats to Gunnar Hensley &amp; Banks Johnson; they were chosen by American Legion Post 43 and WGCS Administration to attend this wonderful South Carolina tradition. The American Legion&rsquo;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 &amp; we are super excited for Banks and Gunnar as they prepare to join the brotherhood of Palmetto Boys State&nbsp;Special thanks to&nbsp;Snowflake Village&nbsp;and Goshen Glenn Ministries for sponsoring our Boys State representatives.</p> WGCS serves at Special Olympics http://www.walnutgrovechristianschool.com/news.cfm#ec_122530_123_short Sat, 01 Jan 2000 00:00:00 CST SM_123 <p>What a beautiful day for the Special Olympics Spring Games. Our high school students &amp; teachers were inspired and had a wonderful time serving the&nbsp;Special Olympics Mecklenburg County&nbsp;athletes &amp; families.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>The mission of Special Olympics is near &amp; dear to the heart of WGCS &amp; we are honored to work alongside everyone today!&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="cke_image" alt="" height="250" src="http://www.walnutgrovechristianschool.com/editoruploads/images/31275698_894520704069307_8076469688395104256_n.jpg" width="250" />&nbsp;<img class="cke_image" alt="" height="250" src="http://www.walnutgrovechristianschool.com/editoruploads/images/31295570_894520610735983_659407746294087680_n.jpg" width="250" />&nbsp;<img class="cke_image" alt="" height="250" src="http://www.walnutgrovechristianschool.com/editoruploads/images/31392968_894520577402653_609994096014000128_n.jpg" width="250" />&nbsp;<img class="cke_image" alt="" height="250" src="http://www.walnutgrovechristianschool.com/editoruploads/images/31275796_894520750735969_3751998329303597056_n.jpg" width="250" /></p> <p><img class="cke_image" alt="" height="250" src="http://www.walnutgrovechristianschool.com/editoruploads/images/31292662_894520654069312_3837958225672536064_n.jpg" width="250" /></p> Spring Musical http://www.walnutgrovechristianschool.com/news.cfm#ec_122530_124_short Sat, 01 Jan 2000 00:00:00 CST SM_124 <p>Everyone is invited to our 2018 Spring Musical</p> <p>Friday, May 18 at 7:00pm Lakeshore Christian Fellowship</p> <p>&nbsp;<img class="cke_image" alt="" height="588" src="http://www.walnutgrovechristianschool.com/editoruploads/images/Picture_musical.png" width="350" /></p> Prom 2018 http://www.walnutgrovechristianschool.com/news.cfm#ec_122530_120_short Sat, 01 Jan 2000 00:00:00 CST SM_120 <p>Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 5 for the High School Prom 2018.</p> <p><a href="http://www.walnutgrovechristianschool.com/editoruploads/files/prom_2018_flyer.pdf">Click here to download flyer for ticket purchase.</a></p> <p><img class="cke_image" alt="" height="971" src="http://www.walnutgrovechristianschool.com/editoruploads/images/prom_2018_flyer(1).jpg" width="750" /></p> Parent Workshop http://www.walnutgrovechristianschool.com/news.cfm#ec_122530_119_short Sat, 01 Jan 2000 00:00:00 CST SM_119 <p style="text-align:center;
