School News 

This week has been full and amazing!! If you have not had a chance to visit the book fair this year then you are missing out.  Mrs. Ballew has outdone herself once again with an “All Aboard” train theme.  It makes for a great photo opt – come a few minutes early to Storybook night and snap a cute picture. Speaking of Storybook night, join us tomorrow at 6:30pm for a fun-filled evening geared towards our lower school students.  The book fair train will stop at the Craft Station, Story Station with Ms T (Q&A with the story characters), Game Station and Screen & Snack Station.   We will also be raffling off prizes that include a Basket of Books & Accessories (over $100 value), a BCA Spirit Wear Bundle and a $25 Gift Card to the book fair.  

Treat for Troops Candy Drive
Our Treat for Troops candy drive was a huge success.  Candy was coming in like crazy!  Thanks to our friends at Brookwood Walmart for a huge contribution.  Our troops are surely going to be blessed by all of these sweet treats.  The winner of the candy drive competition will be announced soon. Stay tune…

Veteran’s Day
Our Veteran’s Day program is THIS Friday at 10am.  We LOVE the opportunity to recognize and honor those who have served our great country.  Students will need to wear their DRESS UNIFORMS.  Please double check the dress uniform requirements and if you have questions as to whether something is approved, feel free to contact Melissa Hayes (mhayes@bridgewayca.org)

Operation Christmas Child
Have you packed your box yet? If not, you are in luck. We have extended our collection date through November 17th.  Not sure what to put in your box? Click here for some suggestions. Putting together these boxes is a great opportunity to impress upon our children (and ourselves) the importance of serving others.

Parent Preview Days
We had another great Parent Preview Day this morning.  God continues to bless us with great potential new families. We have ONE MORE coming up on Wednesday, November 15th!  As crazy as it seems, we have already started the admissions season for 2018.19 school year.  Sharing with your friends on social media, liking our posts, tweets, etc and spreading the word through your neighborhood community sites (i.e. Next Door, Community Facebook page), are just a few ways to invite those who you think might make a good fit at BCA.  Go ahead and mark your calendars for our Winter Open House on Sunday, January 21st.

Mom’s Night Out
Hey BCA moms!! Are you interested in a fun night of fellowship before the craziness of the holidays?  Join us on Thursday, November 16th at 7pm for Mom’s Night Out!  RSVP’s are greatly appreciated – please email morganvangelder@gmail.com to do so.

8th Grade Fundraiser – Poisettias
The 8th graders are hard a work selling poinsettias to help raise money to fund their trip to Washington, D.C.  in the spring.  If you are interested in purchasing one the deadline is coming up on November 17th.  The poinsettias will be delivered on November 28th to the school for the 8th graders to deliver.
