Re-enrollment for 2018.2019
Re-enrollment packets were sent out yesterday to your primary email account.  You have until February 16th to take advantage of the discounted re-enrollment fee of $250 per child.  After the 16th the price will increase to its standard amount of $500 (K-8th)/$300 (Preschool).

5th Grade Step Up
Over the next few weeks, our 5th grade students and parents will have the opportunity to learn more about BCA Middle School. Yesterday our 5th graders attended chapel with the middle school where they talked about facing giants and that if God is for us, who can be against us?  Next Wednesday, February 7th,  5th grade will visit the third floor and rotate through a mock schedule, visit the teachers and learn about the BCA middle school culture. On Thursday, February 8th we would like to invite our 5th grade parents to meet with our middle school leadership team and BCA administration.  During this time parents will learn about what can be expected as their student makes the transition to middle school next year.  Two times are available to choose from – 8:10 am and 3:00 pm.

Head of School Forums
Mr. Dempsey wants to hear from you!  As a school that believes in continual improvement, he invites you to join him at one of our Head of School Forums. The forums will be a time of discussion over such topics as Biblical integration, academics, athletics and fine arts. The forums will be held in the Gathering Room on two different occasions: Tuesday, February 6th at 2:15 pm and Friday, February 9th at 8:00 am. Please click here to sign up.

Tax Letters
BCA supporters – you should have received your 2017 tax statement electronically either yesterday or today.  This will come from the address noreply@renweb.com.  If you have not received it, please check your spam folder and if it is not there contact Joy Hodges in the finance office.  Thanks to everyone who gave so generously in 2017!

No Make-Up Days
The state of Georgia mandates a set number of instructional hours per grade level.  BCA has instructional hours built in to accommodate for school closings (ie: inclement weather).  Based on our schedule, we still meet and exceed the instructional hour mandates required by the state even with the three inclement weather days we have had thus far.

Parent Preview Days
If you know people who missed our open house, do not stress. We have four upcoming Parent Preview Days – February 13th, 27th, March 13th and March 27th.  All will begin at 9:30 am.  Parent Preview Days are a great time for prospective parents to come see BCA in action and hear a member of administration share the mission and vision of our school.
