"To everything there is a season." ~ Ecclesiastes 3:1
Parent Information:
Thank you!
We want to thank everyone for all of the wonderful gifts and goodies that were given to teachers for Christmas. A huge thank you for all of the donations taken at the Christmas program. Thank you for allowing us the pleasure of caring for and teaching your most precious gifts each day.

Operation Christmas Child:
A big thank you to everyone who supported Operation Christmas Child by packing or helping pack a box or boxes. All together we were able to send out 40+ boxes this year!

Parent/Teacher Conferences:
We will be holding conferences again in February. Please prayerfully consider returning your child to Bookcliff Christian for the 2018/2019 school year. Enrollment for children presently attending our preschool will be open the public beginning March 5th.

Open House for Kindergarten-5th Grade: January 25th we will be hosting an open house from 5:30-7:30pm at our school. Parents and students can enjoy a tour of the classrooms and meet our amazing staff. There will be refreshments and crafts for the kids!

Mission: To glorify God by loving and teaching His children to grow in wisdom, in stature, and favor with God and man.
Important Reminders:
Important Reminder:  
Please send your child with their winter attire for the cold weather months. Also, please have your child's name on each item. We will go outside whenever conditions allow.

Weather Closures: 
Please remember that if District 51 is closed due to weather, we will be closed as well. Please text @BCSMain to 81010 to receive updates.

Pick-up Regulations:
It is against State Licensing Regulations and is a safety concern when siblings try to pick-up preschoolers. Parents must come into the room and pick-up their child. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping all children safe.

Late or Absent:
Please call by 9:00am if you child is not going to be in on a scheduled day, whether sick or on vacation.  We would also appreciate a call to let us know if your child will be late. If your child is arriving after their scheduled time, please come sign them in, in the office before taking them to class. Thank you.

Pick-up
Please pick your child up by their scheduled times: Preschool-11:30am; Half-day-12:30pm; Full Day - 5:30pm. Late fees will be assessed if your child is picked up after his/her scheduled time. (BCPS Handbook pg. 2)

Reminders:

  • Please put your child's name on backpacks, coats, lunch boxes, sleep toys, etc. The preschool is not responsible for lost or broken items.

  • Please make sure that your child takes home their projects, coats, and backpacks. Our cubbies and lockers are becoming over-crowded. Remember also to check your child's folder daily for letters, notices, billing, etc.

  • 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.
