A Word From Mr. Critch—April 28, 2016

IMG_5472Yesterday the WA Upper School celebrated God’s blessings in the lives of our students. The middle and high school students joined together for the Fine Arts/Academic Champions Assembly. Each of the Fine Arts groups presented the events and accomplishments of the involved students.  Some of the highlights include: Broadcasting presented A Year In Review and the first annual Wabbies Awards, for Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Video, voted on by the student body. The Juried Art Show was presented via video announcing the ribbon winners, including Best In Show. Robotics showed their year’s highlights via video, including STEM Day in Tallahassee, where they were successfully able to lobby the Florida legislature to contribute $200,000 to support robotics teams throughout the State of Florida.  Mrs. Gianino introduced the students involved in the Harvard Model Congress and presented a synopsis of how this event takes place. The Yearbook was presented to the students by Mrs. Perry and the staff on video showing how the book is constructed and several of the yearbook staff were interviewed. The Upper School Guidance staff presented the Furman Scholarship Awards to the 11th-grade students who were nominated by WA and selected by Furman University.

The program culminated in the announcement of the Class of 2016 Top 10 (in alphabetical order):

  • Kitt Curtis
  • Kathryn Ferraguti
  • Hannah Harms
  • Delany Klassen
  • Becky Kurth
  • Churchill Perry

Please join us in congratulating and celebrating with all of our Upper School students as we praise and thank God for His abundant outpouring of grace and blessings on our students and our families. Please pray that God will continue to show His presence throughout the WA community.

Soli Deo Gloria,
Mike Critch

2013 Homecoming Video Montage On YouTube

October 23, 2013 Posted in: Arts Tags: ,

home-coming-youtubeThe Broadcasting students at WA produced a  video montage which captured the fun and blessings of the 2013 Homecoming festivities and football Game.

Students are excited to be part of the first ever WA Broadcasting class. There are a variety of skills that go into making a video broadcast such as writing, producing, directing, editing, and on-camera hosting. The students are beginning to find which area of production they like best, and they will grow in their skills of production by performing those roles, just like they would if they actually worked in the field of broadcasting or production.  As our production program grows and develops, there will be more opportunities for students to develop their production skills.

Through hands-on experience they will learn the production process: pre-production, production and post. They will work individually, in small teams, as a part of the entire production team that forms the broadcasting class of which they are a part. It is our hope that they will be encouraged to further develop their talents and skills in broadcasting production as they serve the school and glorify Jesus Christ.

Under the leadership of Mr. Jason Beaupied, the following students from the Broadcasting class contributed to the making of the video:

  • Steven Aronson
  • Michelle Campbell
  • Andrew Fetter
  • Sean Grant
  • Britta Gunnlaugsson
  • Kseniya Konysheva
  • Eric Mihalko
  • Bayleigh Pearson
  • Kate Quinton
  • Lia Raby

Go Lions!
