School News 

As we close in on the last day of school, it was a fun week of celebration. On Tuesday, our 4 year old preschool class led chapel and produced an amazing video about the Story of Determination. It is too cute not to check out.  On Wednesday, the entire school celebrated Mr. Dempsey’s birthday by serenading him in song and enjoying some delicious cake.  And then of course there is Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday. Many of our classes have been busy making crafts and cards to recognize this special day.  We want to wish all of our moms a very special Mother’s Day.

Keeping with this month’s theme, determination, Mrs. Broyles’ 3rd grade class led chapel on Thursday.  They told the story of Nehemiah rebuilding the wall in Jerusalem and how he never gave up.  They also reminded us that God never gives up on us and He is always with us! Thank you 3rd grade.

On Friday, our yearbooks went home with students. Huge thanks to BCA mom, Kelly Mosley, for her hard work putting this year’s yearbook together. She did an amazing job!! Also, thank you to BCA parents, Travis Rhoads, Michelle McKinney, and Isa Valdes for contributing lots of pictures for the yearbook. These guys were extremely helpful in getting pictures of events, etc.  The yearbook would not be the success that it is without these awesome people.

Mrs. Kilbride is hard at work putting together our Spring Concert “Thy Kingdom Come” on Thursday, May 18th at 7pm.  The program will feature our 4th, 5th and Middle School Chorus, our 5th and Middle School band and a BCA Alumni band. During the event we will also be honoring the late Mr. Paul Baehman with a Music Room Dedication.  Please join us for a wonderful night of celebration.

Kingdom Come Rise

Over the past 17 years Libby Martore has made her mark on Bridgeway Christian Academy. Mrs. Libby has served in numerous roles; BFE Board, PTF Officer, teacher’s assistant, nurse, Bible study leader, mom, friend, and most recently at the front desk, just to name a few. While she will always be a part of BCA, we are excited for her as she chooses to explore a different season in her life next year (spending more time with her daughter, BCA graduate Sarah). Words cannot express how adored Mrs. Libby is at BCA and she has promised to make frequent visits. While we know Mrs. Libby is leaving big shoes to fill, we are pleased to announce that Mrs. Seritha Stewart will assume the front desk duty role and also serve as Marketing Team Lead.  Mrs. Stewart has also held many positions at BCA, has a background in marketing and is excited to take on her new challenge. Please join us in wishing Libby well and welcoming Mrs. Stewart to her new position for 2017-18.
