Parent Preview Days
We have our third Parent Preview Days next Tuesday, March 13th.  Thank you for continuing to spread the word. Applications for next year are already starting to come in!  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.

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 at BCA.  We would love to have you!

Spring, Sibling and Cap & Gown Pictures
You should have received an email on Tuesday with information regarding Spring, Sibling and Cap & Gown pictures.

Just to recap:
Preschool and 1st through 8th grade students can wear their “mom’s choice/Sunday best” for the spring picture.   When picking out your child’s outfit, please remember to adhere to the BCA culture of “modesty and neatness” as referenced in the handbook.

Sibling pictures will take place 25 minutes prior to the start of school on Wednesday, March 14, 2018. If you are interested, please be sure to email Ashley Baker at abaker@bridgewayca.org to reserve a spot on the schedule. Please bring siblings to the auditorium by 8:35 am.

In lieu of spring pictures, Kindergartners will be taking their cap and gown pictures.  They will need to wear their BCA dress uniforms under their cap and gowns.  IF they are taking a sibling picture, they can wear their “spring attire” to school and then Kindergarten parents will need to stay to help them change into their dress uniforms.

Friday Finale and Chess Club
Today is the last day of chess club for third quarter and Friday, March 9th is the last day of Friday Finale for the third quarter.  Sign up for the fourth quarter will open next week for both Friday Finale and Chess Club.

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.
