Mercy.

We had a pretty nice Halloween at BCS. The kids dressed up, we covered science and social studies from our ice skating day (all about harvest and photosynthesis :), we ate fresh red delicious apples straight from the orchard, donated by Mike Bjerke along with a chocolate chip cookie from Grandma! We also played ‘snap’, watched Pilgrim’s Progress (which was amazing!), and painted pumpkins (thank you Cassie for that donation). Enjoy the pics!

Our bible verse this week is Matthew 9:13 “Now go and learn the meaning of this scripture: ‘I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices.’ ”

We are doing day 41 for Homeschool Friday today.

The message in Pilgrim’s Progress echoed the sentiment of our bible verse this week. Our journey with Jesus is not about what you know but WHO you know. We are not Christian because we attend church or go to a ‘Christian’ school or even read the Bible - although all these things can lead us to want to know Him - what makes us a Christian is the mercy and love we show each other. The more we know Jesus, the more we want His spirit (love, kindness, grace, hope, thankfulness, self-control) to fill our life. I pray we all sink into His love and allow Him to fill us with His spirit. Thank you God for loving us. In Jesus name we pray. Amen

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…

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 …
