School News   

Wow! It has been a fun and crazy few days here at BCA.  Last Thursday, we kicked off the Donut Dash student pledge season with the PTF on hand to pass out donuts that morning followed by a pep rally that afternoon.  Student pledge sheets are due the next two Wednesdays in order to receive the incentives on Thursday.  Each $25 pledge the student brings in, gets them a ticket to put into the raffle for prize baskets.   Proceeds from this year’s race will be used to purchase an activity bus to be used by the BCA athletic programs and to provide students with safe transportation on field trips and other extracurricular events.  And of course, if you have not signed up to run the race, please click here to do so. It is so much fun and you get a donut!!

Father Daughter Dance
On Friday night our sweet girls enjoyed a fun night with their dads at BCA’s 2nd Annual Father Daughter Dance.  Thank you to Karen Leis, Seritha Stewart and Susan Ballew for putting together an amazing event! The decor and refreshments were wonderful.  We are so blessed to have these talented ladies part of the BCA family.  This is easily becoming one of BCA’s favorite events.  We hope that the girls and their dads created some memories that will last a lifetime.

Re-enrollment for 2018.2019
Early re-enrollment for the 2018.2019 school year end THIS FRIDAY.  Take advantage of the special re-enrollment rate of $250 per child and reserve your child’s place.  Re-enrollment packets were sent out to your primary email account.  Please log into your renweb account to complete.  After the 16th the price will increase to its standard amount of $500 (K-8th)/$300 (Preschool).

Parent Preview Days
We had our first of four Parent Preview Days this past Tuesday and had a wonderful turnout.  Thank you for continuing to spread the word. Applications for next year are already starting to come in!  We have three more coming up – February 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.

Winter Break
Friday is a school wide early dismissal (12pm for preschool and 12:15 for K-8th) as we kickoff our fall break.  There is no Friday Finale this week but we do have Aftercare if needed. If your child does not normally attend aftercare, please email aftercare@bridgewayca.org to let them know so we can plan accordingly.  There is no school on Monday, February 19th or Tuesday, February 20th. Enjoy the extra long weekend.
