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 but will be welcome to stay full days Tuesday-Thursday as long as they can be respectful.

4th : Fall Fest Sept 13-14! We will be having our fall fest at Memorial Park in Watertown this year. We will do garbage pickup Friday morning @ 9:30am to 10:30 at the school. Then we will be camping at Memorial Park that night. I believe we can check in anytime after lunch. We plan to grill out and have a campfire worship - also biking and hiking - Saturday morning devotions, and games.  Our camper will be at site #39. You can reserve a site here. Or if you just want to come for the evening, that would be great too! I believe we will stay for the weekend.

Last for now :) : We are going to be doing a new program called ‘Nursing Home Friends’ where the children spend time with a resident at Wookeys in Clark the 3rd Tuesday of each month for 1 hour. Time TBD. We will go as a group. These are on the calendar, so wanted you to know what they were!

Psalm 37:34 Put your hope in the Lord. Travel steadily along His path.

Once again, I am excited to start putting together some pieces for our upcoming adventures and I look forward to spending time together and growing together in His love!

I ask one last favor. Please watch the following video by Francis Chan: then, as a community, let’s get on our knees for our children and our community and let God work His magic.

Freedom to Choose.

It’s crazy, but while we live in a ‘free’ country - many of us live lives that speak otherwise. We are bound by expectations and man-made plans. We do what we do mostly because that is what we are told or expected to do... and then something like this happens where we are given the freedom of time... and choices... a blessing most of us are not sure what to do with. 
I can’t help but spend time right now reveling in the truth that we are created in God’s image... It doesn’t take much exploring of God’s creation to see that we have a very creative God. I truly believe somewhere within each one of us, whether it be building, sculpting, photography, painting, planting, music, crafts, writing, etc - we have a desire to create and explore, a sometimes very buried or hidden desire - but a desire... a yearning in our soul. 
I’m so incredibly thankful for a break from the chaos. An opportunity to slow down and connect with God. I pray with all my heart - as a culture - we are able to let go of …

March 23 - March 27

Good Morning!

Hope everyone is well. God loves you so much.

Math Facts:
1st - 30+3 to 50+3

Bible Verse : Psalm 39: 7 And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you.
Psalm 34:4 I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.

We have such a good Father. I pray that the peace that transcends all human understanding fills your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. We are loved by a Sovereign and Good Father. There is no need to fear.
