Pics. Wookey’s. Ice Skating.

Hey all!

I have a couple items for you to consider. I was able to talk to Dala today at Wookey’s, and we are going to try something, with your permission - and you can absolutely opt out if you would prefer. This will not affect the school day as far as the current schedule, as we will be able to supply rides for all children who are interested in trying this.

In watching our culture, I continue to see a growing trend of children wanting attention... always :) and older folks wanting to provide that - and yet we separate them and put them in their respective corners... and never shall the two meet. I feel this burden has been put on my heart to at least ask a few questions and hold God’s hand while He works his magic. We are going to try to HomeSchool with a few of the residents at Wookey’s. It sounded like we should be able to come up with enough residents so there would be a 1 to 1 ratio. Bev said she would help with orchestrating. Bev and Susan both offered to help with driving. If anyone else would like to volunteer, just let me know!

So, on Monday, Feb 3 — school will start at normal time, 8:15..  at 9:00 we will leave for Wookey’s and be back by 11am at the latest... we will finish science/social studies/piano/MB and whatever else we didn’t get done when we get back. School will still dismiss at 12:30. We plan on doing devotions, math facts, cribbage, reading, writing, language arts while we are at Wookey’s.

This is obviously just a rough plan and it may or may not work out - but I feel in my heart it’s at least worth trying.... or maybe it’s just the start of something that I can’t see yet. Please feel free to contact me with your thoughts/questions/concerns... or ideas ;).

If it works to do every Monday - it will replace our Tuesday monthly visits. This is for grades 1-12. As I don’t think it will work with Kindergarten quite yet - but I may be proven wrong later.

Now, Ice Skating. The next ice skating date is Feb 4. Ice Skating starts at 12:30, so we will close the school at 12:00 that day. If you want to send a lunch with your child that day, we will make sure they get a chance to eat it before 12. Or you can grab lunch after. Your call!

Matthew 20:20 Even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and give His life as a ransom for many.

Thank-you all for continuing this journey with me. We have such an awesome creator!

And some pics...

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…
