On behalf of the faculty and staff at Wichita Collegiate School, we want to wish you the Happiest of Holidays. Please enjoy this video that was created by Matt Webber and the Wichita Collegiate Madrigals and Bella Voce. The video features Injoy Fountain, who attended WCS from Kindergarten through 9th grade. In 2019, Fountain was on The Voice, and she continues to lend her time and talents to WCS. While the message of the song is specific to Christmas, we want to wish each of our families a Happy Holidays and celebrate each of our families' culture this holiday season. We appreciate each of you and hope that your holidays are safe and relaxing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVts5elnCDY&feature=youtu.be

The 7th Grade Science Elf on the Shelf has been quite active over the past several days! Niahm Black says she introduced the Elf to the Classroom a couple of years ago, but students are really taking to his presence this year (and his mask makes for a "totally 2020" touch)! "This year I seem to have hit the sweet spot with students who grew up to with this tradition. They are really excited to spot it at the start of each class and my advising group wanted to used him in our holiday card but wouldn’t get him for me - they brought him over to the Innovation Lab between two pens they were so fearful of touching him. They love he had a little mask on this year. It is fun thinking of more ideas to display him," said Black. What a fun tradition! #ElfOnTheShelf #SpartansHaveFun #MiddleSchoolisFun
