Getting Ready for the 2019-2020 School Year!

Hey All! Happy summering!

We had the BCS board meeting last night and finalized a few changes and okayed the school calendar. Check it out in the side menu!

1st :  HERE IS THE LINK for the South Dakota plublic school exemption form. Please print, fill out, and bring with you to school on the first day. As discussed last year, add one or both of the parents’ names as instructor/s as well as BCS.

2nd : Fridays. We will still have Fridays off from organized school, but I will send home their books on Thursday and each child will need to complete one day of work with their family at home over the weekend. This will allow the parents to see exactly where the children are at with everything and build the value of learning at home as well as at school. I will be sending their readers, math workbook, language arts, vocabulary, and science/social studies (sheet/guide). This is a must.

3rd : School will run from 8:15 to 2:30, Monday -Thursday, 1st - 12th. Kindergarten will not attend on Monday …

2018-2019 School Year. It's a wrap! Thank You. Summer. & Pics.

What a blessed, challenging, and beautiful school year. I am very grateful for the opportunity to grow in faith and experience life with the children of BCS and their families - and all the volunteers!

I continue to learn so much as I teach and watch each child grow and change and begin their individual relationship with Jesus so they can find their way/His way through this world, spreading light in a darkened world.

We ended the school year with these 2 bible verses for the last week and focused on taking them into the world this summer.

Romans 10:15 How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news. 
John 1:5 The light shines in the darkness and the darkness can never extinguish it. 

I pray that Jesus will fill the children and their families with the courage to be a light and share the good news over the next four months. We have the great promise of eternal life. There is no more death, Jesus defeated it when he rose from the dead! It's so exciting and beautiful. So G…

April 10 & 11 - Homeschool. End of Year BBQ.

Hey All!

With the impending weather, I sent home all of the kid’s work for both Wednesday and Thursday this week. I considered having school in the morning tomorrow, but have decided to just let everyone stay home since there seems to be a 60%+ chance of snow from 7am on tomorrow.

If the storm misses us, enjoy the time of learning with your kids anyway! :)

You should have spelling words from yesterday and today. If you don’t, just let me know!

Our bible verse this week is Psalm 118:24 This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it!

The kids really enjoy the song too.

PreK. Continue working on recognizing/writing all letters and saying them correctly. Also work on numbers 1-10. Counting, Recognizing, Writing.

For Bible, we are reading Acts 21. You are welcome to read any part of the Bible with your children. I’m thankful for our homeschool situation so we can take a break from focusing on checking boxes and instead, enjoy the opportunity to learn and grow in f…

Talent Show and Pics!

Hey All!

I'm excited for our serving opportunity today along with the sunshine! A reminder that we are dismissing at 2:00pm today.

Another note for our end of the year BBQ and road cleanup on Friday, April 26. It will start at 10am and will be potluck. Please let me know if you would like to bring something and are willing to help with garbage cleanup or food prep or games.

Also, we will be doing a talent show/recital this year instead of just a piano recital on the last day. Children can choose to play music, sing, create, etc... Please ask your child about this. I have spoken with the students and most have chosen something - but it would be good for parents to go over other options if they would like to try something different. If they choose to create something or need to practice something other than piano, the practicing and completion of the project need to take place after school with family and needs to be ready to present on April 26! Very excited to see what they will c…

Serving

Hey All!

We have another serving event coming up. It's so exciting to have an opportunity to train and disciple our children in serving others and looking past themselves (even if it's just for a couple hours) -- putting them on a path to freedom!

After our last few serve events, we would like to set a few expectations along with more detailed expectations for the next event specifically. Please go over with your child/ren and be prepared to help enforce these requirements with them.

All Serving Events Going Forward
We ask that each parent focus on using this opportunity to teach/help your child/ren serve. If you feel your child is too young to serve the whole time, please just bring them for as long as they are able to serve and then take them home when they get tired. Every little bit helps. Our goal in all serve events is to teach our children the beauty of forgetting about self and reaching out to others and bringing light to a darkened world.

Specific to our next serve even…
