On Oct. 25, the Weatherford Christian School Parent Teacher Partnership hosted their annual Fall Festival and Chili Cook-off at the elementary campus downtown.

Parents, students and teachers enjoyed a “fun evening filled with food, fellowship and games.” Adults were invited to compete in the annual chili cook-off and 18 entries competed for the title of Judge’s and People’s Choice Award.

Winners received personalized WCS plaques, insulated travel bags and cooking utensils. Students dressed in their favorite costumes and competed in activities and games such as the cake walk, bean bag toss and much more. They also enjoyed a balloon artist, mechanical bull riding and bounce houses. The evening ended with a huge bang after Head of School Courtney McKeown had agreed to a challenge with the WCS elementary students.

For every class that brought at least 200 items during the week leading up to the fall festival for the Center of Hope, she would allow them to throw crème pies at her at the end of the evening. By the end of the last week, not only did pre-K 3 - sixth grade students each bring their 200 items but they had managed to surpass all expectations by collecting over 2,450 items to donate to the Center of Hope and families in need for the upcoming holiday season.

The fall festival and food collection for Center of Hope were both successes and PTP looks forward to putting on the event again next year.
