The Season of Thanksgiving

Written by Anna Magallanes, Director of Development 

It seems like the start of the school year was just a short few days ago, but here we are approaching the Thanksgiving break.  For Thanksgiving week, I pray that you are able to take the time to be with family and friends and immerse yourself in what you are thankful for.  I challenge you to take an “I’m thankful for” quiet break each day of Thanksgiving week to pray and give thanks to God for all that he has blessed you with.  At BCS we are thankful beyond measure that you have chosen us as your school of choice and are so appreciative that you share your beautiful family with us.  May your Thanksgiving be blessed and may you come back to school filled with His Spirit!

Here’s what’s going on at BCS!

Doralee Ramons, former Veteran for the US Navy is sharing her experience with our first graders.

First grade had the opportunity to hear from one of our very own Doralee Ramos who is a Veteran from the United States Navy.

If you didn’t hear it on Veteran’s day, BCS wants to take the time to say Thank You to all Veterans for your sacrifices for our freedom.  Our first grade had the opportunity to hear from one of our very own Doralee Ramos who is a Veteran from the United States Navy.  As you can see our students were very excited to hear about her story and what it was like working on a ship.  Friday November 11, we encouraged all students and staff to dress in camo for school and for the game to remember Veterans, and we honored them with recognition at halftime.

Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes Service Project - 5th Graders praying over the shoeboxes that will make their way to kids around the world.Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes is something BCS participates in every year, below you’ll see our fifth graders pray over the shoeboxes. Each year Samaritan’s Purse sends thousands of filled shoeboxes to children all over the world. Each child also participates in a discipleship program where many receive salvation. We are grateful for the opportunity to take part in such a massive global ministry. Our students did a great job by filling over 125 boxes.
