Stuart Little

This is the week! Our Middle School drama students have been working so hard on their Spring production of “Stuart Little“. Our students have the opportunity to get a “sneak peek” on Friday morning at 8:30 am.  Please join us for one of our two other viewings – Friday, March 23rd at 7 pm or Saturday, March 24th at 2 pm. You will not want to miss out on this fun, family event!

Parent Preview Days
Our next Parent Preview day is Tuesday, March 27th at 9:30 am. We have had three so far already this spring and they have been very successful.  We say it all the time, but our families are truly our best marketing tool and we want to make sure you know how much we appreciate you sharing with others about BCA.  Click here to find out more about our BCA Bucks referral program.

Soft Lockdown
Today our students and staff participated in a soft lockdown drill.  It was only a drill!  During a soft lockdown, all exterior doors remain locked.  Teachers are instructed to lock their doors and close blinds.  Soft lockdowns are done in case of a medical emergency on campus, area police-issued lockdown, etc.   Our students and staff did an amazing job!

Spring Pictures
Spring picture proofs were sent home earlier this week. The order AND proofs are due back on Tuesday, March 28th.

Reflex Math
BCA has been rewarded a one year grant for Reflex Math.  Our 3rd grade classes are using it to solidify their multiplication and division facts.  Reflex Math is an adaptive, online, individualized math fact fluency program that helps students make tremendous gains with their math facts. Success with this program is enabling students to tackle higher math concepts with confidence.

Good Friday Chapel
Please join us on Friday, March 30th at 11 am for our Good Friday chapel.  We are thrilled to have Lee Jenkins, the Founder and Lead Pastor of Eagles Nest Church in Roswell, Ga, lead us in a time of worship.

Parents in Prayer
Please join us for Parents in Prayer every Thursday morning at 7:35 am. Over the course of this year, the group will pray for every student and staff member at BCA.  We would love to have you!

Open Arms Parking
Just a reminder that Open Arms has asked us not to use their property as a drop-off or pick-up for our students. All students in 1st-5th grade need to use the main carpool drop-off and come in the front entrance in the morning. The only exception is if a student has a Pre3, Pre4, or K5 sibling. We want to be respectful of their property and what they have asked of us.

CYT’s Mary Poppins
Fourth grader, Ana Campos Seixas and fifth grader, Ashley Caldwell, will both be performing in CYT’s upcoming performance of “Mary Poppins” on Saturday, April 28th.  You can earn BCA money by visiting cyatlanta.com and use the coupon code SPIRITDAY.  At checkout be sure to mention Bridgeway Christian Academy in the comment section so that BCA gets credit for your purchase.

Re-enrollment for 2018.2019
Applications for the 2018.2019 school year are starting to roll in and we are excited about the potential new families the Lord is bringing to BCA.  It is not too late to re-enroll and reserve your student’s spot for the next school year.  Please log into your renweb account to complete the re-enrollment packet.

Last Week of School
The last week of school is always a crazy one.  In order to help us all stay organized, we have put together a “Schedule of Events” for the last week of school.
