School News 


Can you believe we are almost in September and that Labor Day is right around the corner! It has been a great first few weeks.  Field trips have already started; our 4th graders went to the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center on Monday, and our 3rd graders are out today visiting the Elachee Nature Center.

We have got some exciting news!  We have a new spirit wear provider, and we think you are going to be pleased with the options.  We’ve got spirit jerseys, sherpa jackets and Comfort Color t-shirts and sweatshirts.  Most items are available in youth and adult sizes.  To view the store and for instructions on how to order, please click here. We have also added some other outerwear and uniform options to Lands End.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Lion’s Roar challenge last week. Your students enjoyed a cold, sweet treat yesterday at lunch. Be on the lookout for more of those in the future.

We have an excellent opportunity to acquire books for the Media Center and your child’s classroom. Scholastic and Kellogg’s have partnered together to provide books for schools. Click here to learn more. Offer ends Sept 30.

Join us for  our Fall Pep Rally on Thursday, September 6th at 2:15 pm in the gym.

Our Parents in Prayer group will start back the Monday after Labor Day which is September 10th.  We will meet at 8:15 am in the Gathering/Music room for a brief time of intentional prayer for the students and staff of our school.

Ladies, if you have not already RSVP’d for the Mom’s Night Out/PTF Kickoff, then please click here to do so by Tuesday, September 4th.  The event will be at the home of BCA mom, Anne Sigg, on Thursday, September 6th at 7 pm.

BCA is blessed to have the opportunity to connect with some fantastic corporations. We would like to say THANK YOU to our current Partners in Education.

You may have heard, but this year we are celebrating BCA’s 20th anniversary on November 18th.
