Thirty five out of the thirty-six weeks of the Wesleyan school year are filled with countless assessments, Bible papers and piles of homework; Homecoming Week is the one week out of the year where school becomes a little less serious. It is a time where students trade the uniforms for silly costumes and this year, the school went from a normal high school in Georgia to the red carpet in Hollywood.

    Chris Pringle, Ryan Moran and Angeles Acevedo are grateful for the service project this year. Alayna Fogarty.

On Oct. 10, the Senior Leadership Team and a group of volunteers joined forces to create meaningful gifts to give to the facilities team for all of their hard work and dedication.

The facilities team is responsible for maintaining Wesleyan’s beautiful campus. They set up and breakdown events, clean every room in all buildings and more. While keeping a strong work ethic, they make sure to express positivity in everything they do, and they are never seen with attitudes that aren’t always after achieving their golas. Although they are always appreciated it is more difficult for students to see the impact they are making, because many members of the team get to school after the students. After school hours, you will find the team picking up garbage students left behind from a morning snack or they will pick up that crumbled-up test which has 68 in red marker at the top, left behind from a sad student. The work ethic that encompasses the many members of the facilities team is truly awe inspiring, and they are a pure example of what to strive for when wanting to achieve the character trait of hard working.

Checkmate to the Fall Musical: CHESS

in Features/Fine Arts by

At Wesleyan School, the Fall Musical was “CHESS” a comedic/dramatic musical that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the show. The show includes a love story, a scandal and much more.

The musical has been referred to as a metaphor for the Cold War, with the insinuation being made that the Cold War is itself a manipulative game. Released and staged at the height of the strong anti-communist agenda that came to be known as the Reagan Doctrine. Chess addressed and satirized the hostility of the international political atmosphere of the 1980s. The plot line of CHESS was about a woman named Florence Vassy, who is a second to the US Chess Champion, Freddie Trumper. Florence has a really rocky past with her mother dying, her father presumed dead, and she is basically alone with herself. Another man named Anatoly Sergievsky, the Russian Chess Champion, goes against Freddie Trumper in the Chess Championship, but also falls in love with Florence Vassy, which causes trouble because he has a wife.

in Features by

From being launched off a blob, diving head first into the big cookie and playing games in the club house, the Young Life Retreat at Sharptop Cove is a exciting way for students to spend their Fall Break.

The weekend retreat is a time where students can take a breath from the constant business of their school weeks and have fun with each other. Senior Sophie Parsonnet said, “What I love most about the retreat is that it is always an awesome time to connect with the people around you and just really bask in God’s creation.” Keep Reading
