WVA Community Events
September 29, 2023
On the last day of our 1st term, WVA will host a Fall Fest. Each grade will be responsible for running a booth with a game that corresponds with the theme for the term. Not only will there be educational and fun grade-level booths, but each homeroom class will be given an opportunity to make a scarecrow reflecting some aspect they learned that fits the theme. Families, Community members, and student groups will also be encouraged to create a scarecrow representing the current theme. The scarecrows will be displayed and judged with winners receiving certificates and awards.
Cultural Connection Night
December 15, 2023
At the end of December, our school will hold a Cultural Connection night. Cultural Connection is just like it sounds, an event to connect people and various cultures all around the world. To prepare for this community night, students will be learning about various aspects of culture within West Virginia, the United States, and all around the world. Each grade will be assigned a culture to represent at the festival. Students will be asked to volunteer at a booth or create art, objects, food, etc of their assigned culture to present at Cultural Connection. Students will also be learning a song that is commonly sung in their assigned region during celebrations. Each grade will be performing throughout the Cultural Connection night.
Hall of History
March 15, 2024
“Knowing the Past, opens doors to the future.” (Carter G. Woodson) West Virginia Academy’s community event for the four term is the Hall of History. This event will turn our school into a living history exhibit. Based on the theme for the term, the primary students will discovery teh historical significance of various artifacts, pictures, posters, and other items that fit within a specific era they are learning in their grade. The secondary students will be assigned specific events surrounding the theme and historical time period they are studying in their courses. The oldest students, will be able to choose a famous individual and actually “become” that person for the night. They will answer questions and give a monologue to peers and community members throughout the night. Not only does this help our scholars truly experience history, it educates all those that come in an inventive unique way. Our goal is to make history come alive in our very school.
