Parent Information:
Open House & Family Night:
On April 5th, 5:30-7:30 there will be an Open House & Family Night for Preschool-5th grade. Please come and invite everyone you know who may be interested in BCS or BCPS for the fall!

Enrollment:
Enrollment for the 2018-19 school year is progressing at a fast and furious pace! We are calling on the waiting list and filling remaining openings. If you are planning for your preschooler to attend BCPS, but have not yet registered, now is the time to do so! Also, be aware that Kindergarten is rapidly filling as well.

Parents in Prayer:
Parents in Prayer is a prayer group that meets the third Thursday of the month, in the library, at 8:00-9:00am. We pray over the school, preschool, parents, students, and teachers. Join us when you can or contact us for more information.

Clocking in and out:
We would like to remind you of the importance of clocking your child in when you drop them off in the morning and out when you pick them up. The clock-in/out system is designed so that at any time we can print out a list of currently clocked-in students. Consider if your child is not clocked in and fire alarms suddenly go off. If your child happens to be in the bathroom or chooses to hide from the sudden noise, there is the potential for him/her to be left behind in the building during evacuation. While staff will quickly know that a child is missing, precious minutes could be lost figuring out which child. Likewise, a child who has not been clocked out of the system could be the reason for a staff member or first responder going back into an unsafe situation searching for a child who is not even here. We certainly hope we never have such emergencies; but please just in case, do your part to keep children safe!

Eye Contact:
Also, when dropping off or picking up a child please make eye contact with a staff member to be certain we know your has joined the class or been picked up. Thank you!

Volunteer Appreciation Week
We would like to say THANK YOU to all of those who volunteer at BCPS. You are a blessing to our students and staff!

Mission: To glorify God by loving and teaching His children to grow in wisdom, in stature, and favor with God and man.
Important Reminders:
Thank you for the wonderful ongoing support for our preschool! God Bless!

NEW PTF Time:
Please note the NEW TIME & LOCATION for PTF. We had a great time last month at our first PTF meeting at The Artful Cup! Please join us anytime between 8:00 and 9:30 am on April 4th. This is a more casual time to spend with fellow parents. Come and go as it fits your schedule.

Easter Egg Hunt:
On Saturday, March 31st at 10:00am Bookcliff will be hosting an Easter Egg Hunt on the playground. This is a great event for Bookcliff families to spend time together outside of school. It's also a wonderful opportunity to invite friends who do not attend BCS to join in our fun, so invite your friends!

Spring Concert 
Mark your calendars for our Spring Concert, April 26th at 6:00pm. The school students are working hard to put on a fun show to showcase all they've learned this year and they would love to have the preschoolers there to enjoy it!

Annual Golf Tournament:
We are gearing up for our 9th Annual Par-Tee Golf Tournament on May 5th. Every dollar raised will benefit our scholarship fund to make BCS affordable for more families in the 2018-2019 school year. We are looking for individuals and businesses to contribute prizes, silent auction items, team registrations, and sponsorships. Look for Golf Flyers in your child's folder, or contact school@bookcliffbaptist.org to contribute.
Reminders:

  • If you are planning for your child to attend preschool or Kindergarten at BCS in the fall and need a packet, please pick one up at the office as soon as possible.

  • Please do not leave children unattended in vehicles when you come in to dropoff/pickup students. If you have a child sleeping, we can stand at the door and watch them, but PLEASE do not leave them unattended!

  • We could use a few treasure box items or reams of copy paper and rolls of paper towels to get us through the end of the school year. If you would like to donate, that would be great! Thank you!

  • Amazon Smile: Did you know shopping on Amazon can earn money for BCS? Visit https://smile.amazon.com/ and select Bookcliff Baptist Church as your charity of choice. A percent of all of your purchases at Amazon Smile will be given to BCS!
