PLEASE WEAR A FRESH MASK EVERY DAY

Your child should use a fresh face mask every day...either a cloth face mask or a disposable one. If you are in need of cloth face masks, there are several generous community members making masks for our students. In addition, check with your child's counselor or home school advisor for assistance. BGCS also has a limited supply of disposable face masks available for student use. We're here to help!

ART CORNER

The 7th (extended) and 8th grade students learned the value of patience, hard work, and determination in completing our inspired mark making art works. African-American artist, Alma Woodsey Thomas spent her life chasing her dream and at the age of 67, and decided to chase her dream of becoming an artist. She is one of the first ever African American females to show her work in the White House and have a solo show at the Met. She taught elementary art for over 35 years and later continued her dreams as an artist. What a great leader to face adversity and show up everyday to continue following her heart and working everyday to be the best at what she does.


These kiddos rocked it. Don't they look awesome?


Thank you,

Mrs. Sutton

SCHOOL HERO-DELILAH JOHNSON

Delilah is hard working, kind, and she puts forth her best efforts. In class, when other students are loud and not working, she will make sure she stands up and reminds them that they need to get back on track. She fights for her education by letting others know the importance of learning and doing well. She is a great leader in making sure that her learning environment is safe and effective for all of her classmates as well as herself.
