School News 

Last Thursday we celebrated our fall sports and athletes by showing our school spirit with a “RED” out pep rally. That afternoon our varsity volleyball team AND our boys’ soccer team took home wins.  Our teams will be on the road this week but are not going too far so check out a game and cheer them on.

Yesterday we had our first full school chapel of the year, and our students looked sharp in their dress uniforms. Our next dress uniform day will be on Wednesday, September 26th.  Thank you to Mr. Gastley for sharing with us out of John 11 and how Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, and he used Lazarus’ friends to help take off his grave clothes.  He challenged us all to do the same with those around us. Jesus has brought them to life, and if we are called, He equips us to help them live.

Speaking of dress uniforms, if your child came home with an “oops” note yesterday, please do not worry.  These are to help you get ready for the next dress uniform day. We know that the first dress uniform day of the year is tough and therefore we look at yesterday as a “test run” for upcoming picture day.  If you received a note and have questions, please feel free to reach out to Mr. Millis or Mrs. Hayes.

This Sunday, we have our Vision Night/Family BBQ Dinner. Hear our Administration share with you the vision for our school and how you can be a part of that.  Some exciting things are taking place at BCA, and we cannot wait to tell you more. The event starts at 5 pm.  If you have not had a chance yet to RSVP, please do so by the end of the day today!

Stop by downtown Alpharetta and check out our scarecrow in the Scarecrow Harvest Event on Milton Avenue!  This year, our preschool through 5th grade classes worked with Mrs. Thurman to create an awesome scarecrow. Judging will take place on the 18th, and Scarecrow Harvest Festival will be on September 29th. The classroom awards start at 12 pm at the stage and BCA will have a booth with a fun activity. Make sure to stop by!  

TODAY is the last day to order on this round of spirit wear. If you have not had a chance to check out the new apparel, do so by clicking here to view the store and instructions on how to order. The next round will open early October.

We have several Parent Preview Days coming up in October and November.  Parent Preview days are great opportunities for potential BCA families to come and have the “BCA experience.”  If you know someone who may be looking for a new school home,  share this information with them. You can come with them or just let them know when they take place, and we will do the rest.

Our Parents in Prayer group meets every Monday morning at 8:15 am. Please join us for a brief time of intentional prayer for our students, staff and our community.

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.

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.
Partners IEducation connects local businesses with Bridgeway Christian Academy through financial support, gifts in kind, and GA Goal corporate donations.  Being a Partner in Education gives companies a unique experience that helps our team of teachers, faculty, and staff continue to provide environments where our students can grow in wisdom, stature, and in favor with God and man!

You may have heard, but this year we are celebrating BCA’s 20th anniversary on November 18th. Mark your calendars and plan to attend this wonderful event where we get the opportunity to give glory to God and celebrate His faithfulness to BCA for 20 years of providing Christ-centered education.  We are excited to have many BCA alum come back to visit.  We also want the opportunity to highlight our BCA alum on our website and in the Lion’s Roar.
