“A child from Uganda, a teenager from the U.S. and an adult from Johns Creek are all part of one humanity under Christ,” said Christian Life Director Greg Lisson. As part of February’s Christian Life theme, “One Humanity,” Wesleyan partnered with the Sozo Ugandan Children’s Choir to bring a unique celebration of diversity to the community.
After enjoying the Great Atlantan Snowstorm of December 2017, Wesleyan students were dreaming of a “White Christmas.” High school students had the opportunity to fulfill dreams of east-coast snow when they hit the slopes of Winterplace Ski Resort on the Christian Life Ski Retreat.
“Beauty and the Beast” is a musical that allows all kinds of people to join together to bring a shared love of music and the arts to life. For this year’s musical, students from ninth to twelfth grade, as well as one fourth grader, have come together to bring this show to life. For three months, students, teachers and parents alike have worked tirelessly to make sure the show comes to fruition.

Wesleyan cheerleaders have been practicing all month to get ready for Friday Night Lights. It is only the beginning of the season and the cheerleaders have already shown what they can do. With outstanding stunts, tumbling and new routines, they are ready to cheer on the Wolves.
For the first time ever, freshmen were able to make the varsity level squad. In addition to the six freshmen on the varsity squad, there are three sophomores and three juniors that are new to the varsity team. All together they have made for a great group to cheer on the Wolves to victory.
Cheer coach Alex Bufton said, “There is a lot of skill on this squad, so it will be very exciting to watch the girls do more challenging stunts, tumbling and dance routines.” The squad spent every day of their final week of summer practicing to learn higher level cheers.
