A Note From the Principal:
This month I have had the privilege of observing our teachers at Bookcliff. I say “privilege” because that is exactly what it was. It was a joy to see the amazing ability and care that our teachers are putting into their class time. I could see Jesus being shown by them to each and every child. The students were engaged and really caring about what they were doing. I am so impressed with the Christ-centered attitude and love that Mrs. Carozza, Mrs. Stockert, and Ms. Bozeman give to their students! This is going to be a blessed year. ~ Mrs. Pingleton

Parent Information:
Attendance: Consistent school attendance helps children feel better about themselves and perform better in school. It is also important for our classrooms and school success. Please, help your child instill good habits, by arriving to school on time each day. Per our student handbook, 3 tardies will be considered 1 absence. We appreciate your effort to have your child to school on time.

Parent Teacher Conferences:   Parent Teacher Conferences are Thursday, October 26th, from 8:00-5:00pm. We look forward to meeting with ALL of our parents. Please call or stop by the office to schedule a time for your conference. PTF will be providing lunch for the teachers this day. If you would like to contribute a soup, salad, or paper products, please email bcsparents@bookcliffbaptist.org
 
Pumpkin Patch Field Trip: We will take our annual field trip to Studt’s Pumpkin Patch at the end of October. We are awaiting a final date from Studt’s, and will send you details ASAP. Students will have, and should wear, their new BCS shirts with jeans. Parent volunteers are needed to drive and chaperone this trip. If you are available to join in the fun, please let your child’s teacher know. The office will need a copy of your drivers license and insurance. Thank you!

Bookcliff Fall Fest : Join us for our annual Bookcliff Fall Fest on Saturday, October 28th at 2pm-5pm. This is a fun time for children and families! We will have food, games, inflatables, pumpkins and much more! Feel free to come in costumes and enjoy the fun!

Get Involved:
Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF): Another thank you to all of you who took the time to complete our Parent Survey. We gathered great feedback and new ideas! It's not too late, you may still complete a survey, or request to have one resent to you. Our next meeting will be October 4th at 11:30 in the library. Email additional thoughts to: bcsparents@bookcliffbaptist.org

Original Art Works: Our annual Original Artworks fundraiser is a go! Students will create art in class, that you can preview at Parent/Teacher Conferences. You will also receive an order form to purchase personalized gifts and keepsakes with your child’s art. These will be delivered in time for Christmas, and make great gifts!

Book Fair Success: Our Book Fair was a great success and we appreciate everyone who participated! Our students renewed their love for books and reading, and we earned hundreds of scholastic dollars for classroom books and supplies. Thank you!
