Fun @ the Summer Picnic
Food...Fun...Fellowship...a great way to begin the year!

Thank you to the PTF for hosting BCS families, faculty and staff at the Summer Picnic on Sunday, August 23.  It was great fun to see old friends and welcome new families to our community. BCS Interim Principal, Dr. William Walner, shared encouraging words as well as a prayer of dedication for the coming school year.  It was a powerful moment as parents, administrators, students, faculty and staff stood together recognizing God as the key member of our partnership and asking His blessing on all that will be accomplished in the weeks and months to come on the BCS campus.
