A Note from the desk of Cody Burris
We are a couple of weeks into our school year and already we see God at work in our
student body and our teaching staff! I have heard numerous people talk about how the
culture at BCS seems to be exactly what we have been praying for. God has blessed us
From a secondary perspective, things are firing on all cylinders. Students and teachers have
hit the ground running and have gotten off to a great start to this first nine-week term. The
secondary department here at BCS has been blessed to be able to bring on some new
teachers/coaches that will be pouring into your kids this year: Rebekah Krsak (Math), Jarrod
Manning (Praise Band), Christie Patterson (History), Doralee Ramos (Career Exploration),
Kaia Rogers (Cheer), and Cassandra Sullivan (Athletics). In keeping with this year’s theme
“All Things Excellent”, we have brought on board some great teachers/coaches which
positively impact the culture that we are desiring.
Also keep in mind that the 3rd season of The Eagle Podcast will be starting up soon which
highlights secondary students, teachers, and coaches here at BCS. I highly encourage you
to give it a listen!
Our high school students will be leaving for their annual retreat next week in which much
fun, bonding and spiritual growth take place. We are blessed to have one of our local
pastors and BCS Board member, David Catoe, serve as our “retreat pastor” for the week.
Your kids will feast on solid biblical teaching for three straight days and have opportunities
to worship the Lord with their classmates. Please be in prayer for this wonderful event!
God is good. Consider what He has done in our school and your own family.
“Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless His holy name!
2 Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits,
3 who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5 who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
” – Psalm 103:1-5
May the Lord be praised in our community for the great things He has done!
