BCS FIRST ANNUAL STEAM FAIR - A ROARING SUCCESS!

Many thanks to our student, parent and faculty volunteers; special thanks to Kathleen Ellis, who oversaw the entire event with elan. Lots of photos here and here. Additional STEAM resources are here.

1ST & 2ND GRADERS HELP TEACH PreK4 STUDENTS
Our 1st graders are learning how to distinguish fact from opinion. Our 2nd graders are working on an animal research project. Students in each grade shared their new knowledge by making an adorable short video for their younger counterparts in PreK4, who are studying how to distinguish between fiction and non-fiction and getting ready for their own pet research project!

Read Athletics Director Dick McGrath's update for the week here.
This week's senior speakers were (left to right) Ben Paulson, Charlie Sherman and Emma Newbery! Ben spoke about his cousin, an army veteran, who died after suffering from PTSD and how the tragedy challenged the way he felt about death and how important it is that veterans receive the benefits they deserve.
Charlie talked about how he isn't a serious person and how that doesn't mean he's lazy, just that he has the ability to be lighthearted which he's learned earned over time. Emma spoke about her frequent tendency to cry. This used to make her feel weak, but she's realized that her tears are often a sign she is challenging herself to have a good experience.
