A Note From the Principal:
It’s here already. I know this time of year is exciting, the kids are looking forward to all that freedom and summer fun! These few weeks we have left in the school year always make me somewhat sad though. I will miss all of these children! I know that our teachers feel the same way. We love our students and our care and concern for them doesn't end on May 18. Don't get me wrong, we look forward to summer break as well, but we have had such a great year growing students that we become attached! I still hope the best for the students I have had over all eighteen years I have taught. We love your children. The discipline, safety, and education are important parts of that, but most of all I want you to know we pray for your children. We will be praying for you all this summer. We pray for continued growth in their walk with Jesus Christ, and for all of you to come back to us safely next school year. Have a Very Blessed Summer BCS Families! 
~ Mrs. Pingleton
