School News 
Happy September BCA family! We hope you all had a wonderful long weekend.  ​Tomorrow we will have our first pep rally of the year, and we are going “RED” out!  We invite students to show their Lion spirit and wear their red uniform polo along with a uniform bottom.  Parents are welcome to join us at 2:15 pm in the gymnasium as we recognize and celebrate our fall sports athletes.

Next Tuesday morning at 8:15 am, we have our first all school chapel of the year.  Parents are welcome to join us! Students should wear their DRESS UNIFORMS.

We are doing our best to prevent the spread of germs (ie: Lysol the desks, door knobs, etc) but we need your help.  Our handbook states, “Students must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.  If a student has vomited within the last 24 hours, they may not return to school.” As always, if you plan to keep your child home for a “sick” day, please email attendance@bridgewayca.org so that they receive an excused absence.

Spirit wear store is NOW OPEN!  Click here to view the store and instructions on how to order. The deadline to order on this round is next Wednesday, September 12th.

Ladies, if you have not already RSVP’d for the Mom’s Night Out/PTF Kickoff, then please click here.  The event will be at the home of BCA mom, Anne Sigg, tomorrow night at 7 pm.  Do not miss out on this fun night of fellowship.

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.

BCA Vision Night/Family Dinner is coming up on Sunday, September 16th.  It is going to be a wonderful time of fellowship and community.  The festivities start at 5 pm. We will enjoy a fabulous BBQ dinner followed by the Vision Night presentation.  During the presentation, there will be childcare available  for BCA students age 3 and up. Middle School students are welcome to stay and hear the presentation.   RSVP’s are greatly appreciated. Please click here to RSVP by Tuesday, September 11th.

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 then 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!  

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!
