Brazosport Christian SchoolWhat Is Going On at BCS?
The end of the 2022/23 school year is on the horizon and BCS is full of activities! From educational opportunities and sports, to senior recognition and testing, there is something going on each week that keeps our school calendar full! Be sure to keep up with goings on weekly via the school newsletter sent out by Mr. Sikes, or you can catch up with things that happened recently with the school blog sent out by Anna Magallanes, and you can keep in touch with goings on and other information via our school podcast hosted by Mr. Burris.
Recently our lower school was blessed to participate in a Seder lead by Mr. Shane Newby, one of our board members, and parent to students at BCS. He took the time to set up the different elements of the Seder and explained the meaning of the elements and led a full ceremony.
Mrs. Wied shared words below on why it is important to BCS that our students learn with hands-on experiences:
At BCS, we know that children learn best by being involved in hands-on learning. When teaching Missions it is essential to encourage the students by creating interactive experiences. Whether it’s learning about Moses and his encounter with God at the burning bush or understanding the Exodus of the Israelites and the ten plagues by enjoying a candy activity. Artistic creativity also helped students gain understanding of the Lord’s sacrifice as they painted their own scene of the first communion. Elementary 1st-5th grade students were blessed to participate in a Seder that included elements symbolic of the difficulty and celebration of the Israelites release from Egyptian slavery. We give glory and honor to God for the opportunity to teach the students about Him and his kingdom. We serve the risen savior Jesus Christ and praise His name.

8th Grade Field Trip
GALA was a recent fun event that helped raise funds for our school, but also provided fun opportunities for some of our students and families! Our 8th grade students had the opportunity to attend a field trip to Galveston and play at The Pleasure Pier. Thank you to the Gilbert Family for sharing your Bucket Raffle Winnings with the 8th Grade Class! We believe that students should have a rigorous quality education, but we also believe that there should be time for rest and play! We hope you had fun 8th Graders!
Valedictorian and Salutatorian Announcement
It’s almost May which brings us to the end of another great school year! As we are all wrapping up in our classrooms and offices, we are eager to have the summer break upon us bringing fun and relaxation after the school year. However, for some students, this is the summer they will have in their memories forever, as the last summer prior to entering the workforce or furthering their education in a higher educational institution. Congratulations to the class of 2023, we hope you carry your memories and relationships with you as you leave our campus to follow your dreams. Congratulations to the Class of 2023, especially to Seth Henderson our Valedictorian, and Caleb Seal our Salutatorian!
Jr. Class Career Fair at College
Brazosport College hosts a career fair each year that the Junior classes from all the local high schools get invited too. This career fair has speakers in different career fields, a booth area where local businesses can set up and talk about their career fields and what it takes to get a job in that field, and other information useful to students that will be graduating soon and either furthering their education or entering the workforce. The BCS Jr. Class spent the morning attending seminars in work fields they were interested in, and learning about what is next in their futures, all while getting a glimpse of life on a college campus.
