School News 

What a great day at BCA?!?! This morning we got the opportunity to gather around our flagpole and pray as a body to our great God.  “For over 25 years, See You at the Pole has been about one simple act—prayer. SYATP is still about students uniting themselves in prayer before God interceding for their generation.”  This morning we heard our students pray for our school, our teachers, our state and nation and for those lost and in need.  Oh the sweetness of their prayers!  This afternoon, we enjoyed a visit from one of favorite people, The Reptile Man!  He brought along a slew of his slithering friends to show. From turtles, crocodiles to very large snakes – the kids loved them all.

Parents in Prayer

Parents, please join us starting next Thursday (10/4) morning for Parents in Prayer at 7:30am in the Gathering Place.  This will be an informal but intentional time of prayer for our children, our school and other the Lord puts on our hearts to bring to Him. Come one week, come every week…just come!  “Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you.” Jeremiah 29:12

National Box Top Week Competition
We have two more days until the classroom Box Top competition is over so keep clipping and send them in with your child.  The winner will be announced at Family Dinner & Vision Night.

Parent Preview Days Coming Up
We have some some great opportunities for prospective new parents to tour the facilities and meet some of our wonderful teachers.  Here is what we need you to do – TELL EVERYONE!  We will be sending home postcards next week for you to hand out to people you think you be a good fit at BCA.
