Green Team Congratulations to the Green Team for cleaning up 22nd Avenue on Saturday, October 25  as a part of Fort Lauderdale’s city‐wide initiative “Make A Difference Day” for our inaugural Adopt‐A‐Street event.

A student from Westminster Academy, who participated in the Adopt‐A‐Street project, summarized the spirit of the day “We really felt like part of something big when we were out cleaning up.”

Parade2There was excitement and anticipation among our PK4 students today, with bikes, trikes, scooters, wagons, big wheels, doll buggies etc.—all decorated in red,white and blue! The students from Mrs. Metzger’s and Mrs. Smith’s classes were raring to go for the 27th Annual Red, White & Blue Parade. The parade serves to honor America, our veterans and all the ways that God has blessed our great nation. The children wore red, white and blue attire and came to school with their decorated vehicles.

The procession began in the early childhood courtyard area, to the main campus, through the lower school hallways and to the gym, before circling back to their classrooms. While the students circled the gymnasium, fellow students and family members cheered them on. A special Thank You to everyone who helped to put this exciting event together for our students. Just a reminder, WA will be closed next Tuesday, November 11, in observance of Veterans Day as we honor our Armed Forces and the men and women who have served and continue to protect our freedom and country.
God Bless America!

Freezing temperatures, choppy water and heavy white caps caused the organizers of last weekend’s Head of the Hooch rowing regatta in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to cancel all rowing on Saturday. However, the weather was marginally better on Sunday and our students who had traveled to Tennessee were able to participate, compared to the South Florida climate. This regatta is the 2nd largest in the country with 2,000+ boats racing over two days. Participants come from over 200 different organizations and 27 states.

Collin Renae and Zach Allsworth raced in a Men’s Youth pair (together for the first time) and finished 21st out of 34 with a time of 20:14.0. Jackson Moore and Kenny Rondino competed in the Men’s Youth 1x. Jackson placed 8th out of 63 with a time of 19:40 and Kenny placed 61st out of 63 with a time of 24:21.

I am beyond thrilled for both Jackson and Kenny. They are both stronger than last year and their results show that the training program is working. Jackson Moore beat some Junior National Team rowers and rowers that he was not able to beat last season. I am excited to see Jackson excel at this race and am looking forward to continue training him for Junior National Team.” said  coach Cumbest.

Over the next few weeks, the rowers will continue to work on their stamina by long rows, but starting in December, they will transition into training shorter distance in preparation for Spring racing.

Go Rowing Lions!
