Congratulations again to the cast of "Into the Woods Junior" for their performances earlier this month. Involved in all aspects of the production, from set pieces and props, to assisting with lighting and stage crew, these talented Grade 6-8 students put on another spectacular show under the direction of the talented Miss Michelle Wagman and Miss Christina. We cannot wait to see how they continue to shine in next year's Spring Musical! We continue to be most proud of how this community of actors support one another as they conquer the stage! Bravo!

Dear BCA Families, Our week began with the Grade 4 class leading Chapel. We continued the school theme of the "I am" statements of Jesus, which were usually told in a parable. The parable we talked about is when Jesus said "I am the true vine" (John 15:4). A parable is a story that Jesus used to teach others about God. Jesus used stories that the people he was talking to could make a connection with so that they could understand God's truths better. In the parable we presented, Jesus said He is the vine. Jesus used a vine [...]
Grandparent’s Day We are looking forward to hosting Grandparent’s Day on Friday May 31 from 1-3 p.m. in the BCA gym. We have an afternoon of student entertainment planned along with serving the grandparents refreshments. The students are very excited to perform for their grandparents and show them their classroom. Grandparents will have a chance to visit the classrooms following the gymnasium time. We appreciate your donation of cookies, squares, and fruit. We need volunteers to help with clean up following the event.
Our Scholastic Book Fair begins tomorrow (Wednesday May 29th) and will continue until Friday May 31st. Join us in the foyer and shop for the school - every purchase you make for your own homes helps to restock our library shelves with new and interesting items for your children to enjoy at school.
Dear BCA Families, It has been a great short week! Tuesday I had the privilege of travelling to London with the Track and Field team as they participated in the annual CAASO (Christian Athletic Association of Southern Ontario) Track Meet. Congratulations to all our athletes. Thanks to the many parent helpers and cheerleaders! I will share the results in next week’s PC. It was brought to my attention that Compassion Society who serves the needy in the Aldershot Community is in need of food donations. Our senior students helped out at Compassion Society before Christmas and were able to [...]

The top 4 contributors from the Grade 8 class will be selected to throw the pies! Thank you again to everyone for their support during this fundraising campaign for the golf tournament.
Dear BCA Families, This week in Chapel, Mr. Cope spoke about Christ’s statement, “I am the true vine”. He spoke of how Christ used common comparisons to things people would understand in His time period. Mr. Cope said that today, Christ might have used cell phones to represent us and compared himself to the electric power that lets cell phones work. Without power, a cell phone cannot do anything, but with power it can do amazing things. The Bible tells us that with Christ, we can do great things for God, but without His help, we are powerless. Just [...]
Dear BCA Families, At Monday’s Chapel we continued with the theme of the “I am” statements of Jesus. This week I spoke to students about “I am the vine” based on John 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing”. In this verse the “I” represents Jesus and the branches are those who are followers of Jesus, us. The fruitful branches are those believers who by their living and close relationship with Jesus produce much fruit. [...]
