From the Principal's Desk
As we begin our 2019-2020 school year we ask God for his blessings on BSS.

Lord Jesus,
We ask for your guidance and help as we begin this new school year. Help them to master new skills and increase their love of learning. Prepare them for what you have for them in their futures. Protect them from what is harmful to them and expose them to good things only. Pray that they will have good attitudes and a willingness to work hard. Please give our family peace during this school year. Thank you for loving them, protecting them, and caring for them. Jesus, inspire them to do their best this year!
