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.

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…

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…
