School News 


Thank you to all who were able to join us for Vision Night this past Sunday. It was a great evening for the BCA family to come together and hear about the state of the school. We discussed what God is doing at BCA, we heard some alumni news, and we heard about ways to support our school through Ga Goal (redirect), Lion’s Fundraiser (external) and the Annual Fund (internal).  For those of your not able to attend, click here for an informative video.  For those of you who were able to attend, we would love to get your feedback. Please take a few moments to complete this survey. Thank you to one of our Partner in Education sponsors, Quality Orthodontics for providing our yummy ice cream dessert.

Next Wednesday is SEE YOU AT THE POLE AND PICTURE DAY.  Join us at 9:15 am as we gather around the flagpole to offer up prayers for our school, city, country and more to our great God.  We will also have fall pictures made that day. Students need to wear their DRESS UNIFORMS. 

As mentioned at Vision Night, BCA is very active on several social media platforms.  You can find us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr.  Liking, sharing, reposting, etc. are all ways you can help spread the word about the awesome things going on here at BCA.  That being said, it has been brought to our attention that there might be questions/concerns when it comes to social media. If you are interested in hearing more about social media, please email Melissa Hayes (mhayes@bridgewayca.org).

Publix is no longer accepting school cards for scanning as of October 1st, but we can still earn money for BCA by shopping there.  To set up a Publix account, click here. You will have to choose BCA as “My Publix Partner” on the My Account page. The bonus is that you can also assign digital coupons to your account and get credit for everything when you enter your phone number at checkout.  We collect Box Tops!  Every Box Top is worth ten cents. It does not sound like a lot, but they all add up!  You can drop them off at the front desk.  There is also the Bonus Box Tops App. There are deals every month, or so that give you extra box tops digitally if you take a pic of your receipt and send it in through the app.

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. They can RSVP for a date by clicking here.

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.
