2019 CaroNovember 8, 2019

This year’s Spaghetti Supper Family Fun Night was extra special. We celebrated 60 years of Westwood Christian School serving the community and impacting many generations with excellence and dedication. The Caro family is one of the many families that have been part of our Westwood Christian School family. They are three generations of  Westwood Warriors, starting with the class of 1984 and continuing to the class of 2020. The Caro generations will continue because, “Once a Warrior always a Warrior”.

This week, Westwood Christian School successfully passed all our State and National Accreditations. This is a huge accomplishment! It once again validates the level of academic excellence Westwood Christian provides their students. Below is a letter from the school Director, Pastor Marc T. Mortensen.



Dear Faculty and Staff:

Praise the Lord! Yesterday, the Commission on Accreditation from our parent organization FACCS recommended Westwood Christian School for full accreditation status. This action gave our school continued national and regional accreditation including 106 countries. The organizations that are recognizing Westwood Christian School are as follows: FACCS, Middle States, SACS (Cognia) and NCPSA.

All of you can take pride in your hard work and achievement over the past six months. We truly appreciate your dedication to make this recent accreditation successful.

I especially want to congratulate our Administrator, Mr. Bill Thomson and his wonderful leadership during this entire process. Special appreciation also to our elementary principal, Mrs. Christie Ross and her team members, Shane Schroeder and Marcus Mortensen for the long hours and labor they contributed to this project.

I want to recognize and say thank you to the great teams that was assembled for this enormous task. We couldn’t have accomplished all that was done without your dedication. Your effort was certainly evident during the long process of completing the many steps of accreditation.

Again, we praise the Lord for all of His blessings upon this ministry during the past 60 Years and are looking forward to what He is going to do through all the ministries of First Baptist Church of Westwood Lake in the years to come.

For Christian Education,

Pastor Marc T. Mortensen
