A Note From Mrs. Bateman...
Wow! We made it! The 22/23 school year is almost complete. This week we wrapped up our curriculum classes and next week we will round out the year with our class picnic/cleanup day on Tuesday, our day of service on Wednesday, and our closing chapel on Thursday. As a reminder, school ends at 12:00 PM on Thursday and there is no extended care.
On a personal note, I want to thank you all for welcoming me into the BIA community four years ago. It has been the opportunity of a lifetime to help build BIA into the school our students, families, and community deserve. God has surely blessed us, and I am confident His blessings will continue for many years. My words of advice for students...We are all born to be difference-makers. The opportunities are endless to influence others in our daily lives, but one of the easiest ways to make a big impact is through the simple act of kindness. It's how we mark the world with love in Jesus' name.
Class Projects are still available in the office! Be sure to check out these awesome art creations a bit further down the newsletter. They truly are extraordinary works of art!
Reminder...Financial Aid for 23/24 is now open for students in grades Kindergarten through eighth grade. Applications can be found online at https://www.biachicago.com/financial-aid.
