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 see the great work they are doing serving those less fortunate. At this time their food bank is completely depleted. If you are able to help out, please send in any of items listed below. Donations will be accepted until Thursday May 30 in the front lobby.

The following are the most needed items:

Instant coffee, Canned fruit, School safe snacks and lunch items, Salmon, Tuna, Crackers, Canned meat, Rice, Cereals, Honey, Juice (juice box and family size juice), Apple sauce, Ketchup, Salad dressing, Mayonnaise, Fruit Juices, Tea bags, Flour, Sugar, Cooking oil.

PTA

Voting begins today and will remain open until Friday May 31st at 11:59pm.  Once votes are tabulated, the elected candidates will be notified the week of June 3rd.  Click here to learn about our candidates and to access the link to cast your vote.

Volunteers Needed

We need your help to move items in our upstairs storage area so one of our parents can build shelves for storage. Please email heather.crossing@onlyatbccs.com if you are available any time soon.

McMillan’s Fundraising Opportunity for Grade 7-8 Quebec trip

Please click here to see the information letter about a fundraiser to assist the Grade 7&8 students who are going to Quebec City the last week of school. Money raised from this will go towards each student for their spending money.  Brochures will be sent home with students. Cash/debit can be used to pay and should be received at the front office. We appreciate your support for the Grade 7&8 students.  We will accept orders until June 13 and payment is required before the order can be placed. Delivery will occur the afternoon of June 20.
