A Note From the Principal:
We are already at the end of our first quarter! Maybe, you are feeling the same way as I am, that time is flying for these young ones. They are growing up so fast. Because of that, I feel it is crucial, that now, at this time in their lives, we live out Christ to them as much as we can. I love to see the older students digging into their Bibles during chapel, earnestly seeking to engage in the lesson. It is also so precious to hear the honest responses of the younger crowd in chapel. They give matter-of-fact truth, no doubt. I pray that here, in school, and at home, our students’ hearts (and ours) will be tender to God’s love and receptive to His ways and calling. I see Him, at work in their hearts everyday! ~ Mrs. Pingleton

Parent Information:
Academic Ribbons: We will be making two changes to our award system this year. Our 1st-5th grade students will now receive Honor Roll ribbons only at semesters. This will give teachers adequate time to measure growth and achievement. They will also be out of the “review” period that first quarter is for all grades. We will also be adding an “Encompass Award” to recognize students who meet academic standards, as well as, display good behavior and Christian character. We are excited about this new reward as it will better reflect our concern for our students’ lifelong walk with the Lord.

Thanksgiving Lunch for Students:   Bookcliff Baptist Church will be blessing our students and staff with a Turkey dinner for lunch on November 9 th. No need to pack sack lunches this day.
 
Family Pie Potluck: We look forward to having all of our families (PreK-5th) together for our Family Pie Potluck on November 10th @ 6:00pm. This will be a fun evening for students and parents to connect and enjoy time together. Look for more information coming home soon.

Picture Retakes : Picture retakes will be November 7 th for anyone who missed picture day, or would like to have their photo retaken. Look in your child’s folder for more information coming home soon.
