School News 

We had a wonderful time at the Family Dinner and Vision Night. Thank you to all who were able to attend.  In order for us to continue to improve as a school we ask that you complete THIS survey.  At Vision Night we spoke briefly about our Foundation Fund and information was sent home with your youngest child yesterday. Please prayerfully consider your pledge for this year and complete the online pledge form by Wednesday, October 18th.  We are hoping for 100% participation.  Also, please remember that this is different than in years past. This is only a PLEDGE –  a commitment to give.

Parents in Prayer

Parents, please join us tomorrow morning (and every Thursday after that) for Parents in Prayer at 7:30am in the Gathering Place.  This will be an informal but intentional time of prayer for our children, our school and other the Lord puts on our hearts to bring to Him.  “Your prayers for your children are the greatest legacy you can leave.” Mark Batterson

National Box Top Week Competition
Thank you, thank you for sending in the Box Tops for last week’s classroom competition.  In just one week we collected over 2000 Box Tops.   The winner of the competition was Mrs. Buck’s second grade class. They will enjoy a pizza party on Thursday. Great job to everyone!

Parent Preview Days Coming Up
We have some some great opportunities for prospective new parents to tour the facilities and meet some of our wonderful teachers.  Here is what we need you to do – TELL EVERYONE!  We will be sending home postcards next week for you to hand out to people you think would be a good fit at BCA.

October – National Bullying Prevention Month
As a school we want to recognize national bullying prevention month.  At BCA and as christians, we take this topic very seriously.  While we are blessed to be a covenant school with like-minded families, we have to recognize that we are all sinners and fall short.  In Romans 3:23 we are told that “for all have sinned and fall short of His glory”.  We are currently working on an update to our bullying policy that we will be sending out very soon.  On Tuesday, October 10th we would love for all students to wear their navy blue uniform shirt with a uniform bottom as we kill bullying with kindness.  If your child does not have one of our navy uniform shirts, let us know.

Trunk or Treat 

Mark your calendars for this year’s Trunk or Treat on Friday, October 27th from 6-8pm.  Information will be coming out soon about how to sign up for a trunk and for the chili cook off competition.

This month in lower school chapel our students are learning about Creativity – using your imagination to do something unique.  How amazing is our God that He created us all so uniquely but yet He knows us fully? We encourage you to talk about this at home with your child and be intentional about highlighting their own uniqueness and that of others.

In Middle School chapel, students have been learning about the Attributes of God.  On Tuesday, Mrs. Guess shared about God’ love! She talked about how His love covers, cares and changes us!  “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
