Congratulations to all!!
Cookie Dough Fundraiser
Thanks, Middle School Parents, for all you did to help make our fundraiser such a great success. We raised approximately $7,000 in funds to be used by our PTF to support the students of BCMS. Special congratulations is extended to the 6th Grade Class for their big win in the "Cookie Dough Challenge." To show our appreciation for their highest percentage of total sales, these students enjoyed a PJ Day on Monday, November 25, and they will have a night of no written homework on Monday, December 2.
LifeWay/BCS Book Fair - A Great Success!!
Wow! The first BCS/LifeWay Christian Store Book Fair was a huge success. Thanks to all the parents and students who made this venture so fun and profitable. All proceeds will be used to support the BCMS/Elem Library.
One Great Day of Service - Amazing!
They raked, they served meals, they decorated homes and churches for Christmas, they tutored elementary students, and they packed boxes at the Memphis Food Bank. Yes - the students of BCMS, under the direction of their Mentor Groups Leaders, fanned out into the community on a cold, rainy November day in order to GIVE. "We have been given so much," said one Middle Schooler. "We need to give back." Our students were inspired by the words of Acts 20:35: "Its is more blessed to given than to receive."
