A Note From the Teachers:
We absolutely love getting to know and teach your children every day. Thank you for this blessing and thank you for all your prayers and support. Have a blessed and safe Christmas and break! ~ Preschool Teachers & Staff

Parent Information:
Gift Card Fundraiser: Please get your orders in by tomorrow! You should have already received a flyer regarding our holiday fundraiser. We are selling gift cards through Scrip, an organization that will donate a percentage of every gift card purchase back to BCS. This is very simple, aligns well with holiday spending, and costs you nothing extra. Please take some time to think about how you might use gift cards for your upcoming spending and gifts.  Order at www.shopwithscrip.com Enrollment Code: BDBL3E7612715, and bring a check to the school by November 29 . Send questions to bcsparents@bookcliffbaptist.org

Christmas Program: Please join us for the Christmas Program on Friday, December 15th, at 6:30pm. The school and preschool are combining this year for a different type of program! Please have your child here, in costume, by 6:30pm Parents are welcome to accompany their children through the interactive experience that we hope will bring them to better understanding of what Christmas is really all about.

Christmas Parties: Our Christmas parties will be on Wednesday, December 20, at 10:30am. Children who do not attend on Fridays may come to the party as long a a parent wants to stay in the classroom for the party. This keeps us from violating State Regulations on Teacher/Student ratios. If you would like to volunteer to help, please let you chili's teacher know. There will are a party sign-up, sheet, similar to the one for the Harvest Party, so please watch for that as well. Children may wear Christmas attire. School will dismiss for Christmas break at 11:30am right after the parties.

Parents Night Out:    Bookcliff Baptist Church with again host a Parents' Night Out on Friday, December 8, from 6:00-9:00pm. This is an opportunity for parents to have their children cared for while they do some Christmas shopping or have a date night! Preregistration required.

Love Offering: The students have been working hard to prepare for the up-coming Christmas Program on December 15 at 6:30pm. The event is free and will include light refreshments. PTF will be collecting donations to be given to our teachers as a love offering for Christmas. Please consider what you might give to bless our teachers who do so much for our children. Program details will be coming home soon!

Important Reminder:   Please have your child bring a coat, hat, and gloves (with their name on them) daily as it gets colder outside. Also, please change out the extra clothes that you brought for your child's cubby from summer to winter attire.
Mission: To glorify God by loving and teaching His children to grow in wisdom, in stature, and favor with God and man.

Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF): Thank you for all of your contributions towards our Family Pie Potluck!  It was a fun evening and time well-spent connecting with fellow BCS families. We look forward to more socials in the future!  December will be a short month, but we still plan to meet December 6th at 11:30 to work on blessing our teachers and staff for Christmas.

  • Toys should NOT be coming to school with your child.

  • Parents are invited to join us in prayer. Please join us in the library on the third Thursday of each month, at 8:00am. If you can’t be present, consider setting an alarm and praying from wherever you are.
