April 6 to April 10. Transitioning.



Hey All! How is everyone doing?

We will be on days 138-143 this week.

As we are beginning to wrap up a few things for the school year, I encourage you to find creative ways to learn and grow as a family. 5th grade will finish up their math workbooks this week. After they finish, I would like them to work on their 12, 13, 14, & 15 times tables... and any other they need reviewing. Perhaps just pick one table (1-10) and a second table from the (12-15) group for each day. Feel free to be creative in reviewing anything from the year.

1-3rd Math. If you would like to take a break from math facts and do 2 pages/day from the math workbook, that would work. That is what our family is going to do since they are review pages - but you can decide for yourself. Otherwise, you can finish the last review days over the summer as well.

5th will also be finishing up language arts. When the workbook is done, please finish up the year by writing a story! This can be fiction or based on facts.

1-3 Language arts. We are gong to do 2 days from language arts workbook and skip spelling words to finish up the year as well. Please do what suits your family.

For reading - we will just be continuing on with each day.

Science/Social Studies - Please review days or try some of the year end/summer projects. Or adventure and discover. I would love to see pictures of adventuring if you are willing to share! :)

Bible. Read chapter 3 & 4 of Philippians this week.

Bible verse : Philippians 4:7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

A Note : I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the blessings God poured out on BCS this year. Without us knowing, He prepared us for something we didn’t and couldn’t see coming. I have heard some really good things from the BCS community... about families really enjoying this time together and opportunity to make learning their own. We have so much to be thankful for. We live in a broken world... we all know this. And yet, if we look to Him and trust Him, He will continue to guide us... Not because we are perfect but because He is good.

Godspeed.

PS. Because our school year is really almost over, I wanted to let you know our family’s plan for summer books. I feel it is so important to do some form of learning and reading over the summer just so kids don’t forget simple math, letter sounds, etc. We will be doing the Brain Quest books from the year they just finished along with reading chapter books. If you want to borrow any books from the school, just let me know!

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…
