School News   

Can you believe it will be Thanksgiving in a little over a week?!?! Before we know it, it will be summer. Don’t blink! We have had another full and fun week.

Book Fair & Storybook Night – We were all blown away by the amazing book fair and Storybook night.  Thanks to you guys, we exceeded our goal and even made a new record!

Veteran’s Day – On Friday, our students did an amazing job honoring our veterans through songs, special readings, video messages, etc. at our annual Veteran’s day program.  Thank you to Mr. John Heidemann for coming to share his story with us.  Also on Friday our Treat the Troops candy drive winner was announced!  BCA students collected over 500 pounds of candy to send to our troops.  The winning team was the RED team which included the R3 middle school red team, first, second and fourth grades. Great job guys.

Operation Christmas Child – You have TWO MORE DAYS to pack and send in your Operation Christmas Child box. On Friday, we will pack up all the boxes to take the distribution center. Be in prayer for the children who will get these very special boxes. Thanks for being a blessing.

Mom’s Night Out – Hey BCA moms!! It is not too late to come to Mom’s Night Out tomorrow at 7pm at the home of BCA mom, Morgan Van Gelder.   RSVP’s are greatly appreciated – please email morganvangelder@gmail.com.

8th Grade Fundraiser – Tomorrow is the last day to order poinsettias from our 8th graders.  The proceeds go towards their DC trip this spring.  The poinsettias will be delivered on November 28th to the school for the 8th graders to deliver.

Alpharetta Christmas Tree Lighting – We are excited to once again be a part of the Alpharetta Tree Lighting on December 2nd. Our 1st-3rd grade students will have the opportunity to perform. More news will be coming out soon from Mrs. Kilbride.  We will have a festive tent set up and passing out hot chocolate. Please make plans to stop by and say hello.  Middle school students that are interested in serving at the event and getting service hours can click here.

ABC Christmas & Christmas Market – On Tuesday, December 12th our 1st through 3rd grade classes will be presenting “ABC Christmas” at 7pm. Prior to the performance there will be an artist market from 6-6:45pm where 5th-8th grade students will have the opportunity to make and sell items. Mrs. Thurmann will be handing out sign up forms for those interested.  Also at the event we will be showcasing some of our fall art pieces made by students in grade Pre3 through 3rd as well as the fall middle school art students.

On the “GO” – Equipping students to know, grow and go is part of BCA’s mission statement and some of our very own are doing just that over the Thanksgiving break.  Dennis and Gail Clark are leaving to serve in Trinidad and Tobago over the Thanksgiving break.  Coach Clark will be teaching jumping rope lessons and sharing the gospel. Mrs. Clark will be leading some teacher workshops and sharing the good news. We know of others “on the go” as well. BCA students, Davis and Campbell Faulkner along with their parents, are going to serve in Nicaragua.  Please be in prayer for them as they travel and that God would use them in a mighty way for His Kingdom.  If you are out and about serving over the break, snap and post a picture using the hashtag #equippingtoknowgrowandgo #bridgewaymoments.
