Spelling Bee – There was a tie in one of the grades during the spelling bee. This tie will be broken at the Fine Arts night (see below). Because of the tie, we will also announce all winners on that night.
BBCA Sunday – Sunday, April 7th, will be BBCA Sunday. Our convention students will be performing many of their events during the 10:30am service. We will also be having a dinner on the grounds with a Cakewalk fundraiser for our convention costs.
Convention – Students going to convention will need to have a final payment of $50 turned in by April 5th. We are proud of our students who raised so much of the money this year! The total cost for the RSC was going to be around $400, but the total per student will be just $100. We are planning to try and go to Internationals next year, which will have a higher cost. We are going to start some convention fundraisers early to try and help cover that cost as well!
Fine Arts Night – We will be hosting our first ever Fine Arts Night on Friday, May 10th, from 6:00pm-8:30pm. Students will be showcasing art projects done throughout the year, there will be a school open house, the spelling bee final will take place, and there will be a skit. We are using this as a fundraiser for next year’s International Convention. The cost is usually $700-1,000 over the cost of regionals per student and we want to help offset as much of that cost as possible. Tickets will be sold for $5 each and will be available in the weeks leading up to the event as well as at the door.
2019-20 Re-Enrollment – Financial aid and re-enrollment forms for next year are available on the school website to be filled out electronically. Each family that would like to participate in the financial aid program must fill out a new application online. Also, each student must be enrolled individually this year. The registration fee of $100 will be waived through the end of April so please get your students registered right away!
Electronic Calendar – We strive to keep the calendar on our school website current. You can view and subscribe to the School Calendar by visiting www.bbcalatrobe.com/calendar
School Phone –724-221-0267 If you are not receiving texts from this number, please send a text with your name asking to be added. This is the easiest way to contact someone in the school as it is always monitored. We will no longer be using the Remind service. Please also use this number to let us know if your child will not be in school or will have other travel arrangements. Supervisors are very busy during the close of the school day and do not always have access to their phones. We have someone monitor this phone for transportation purposes.
Please continue to send in Box Tops for Education and Chick-Fil-A receipts from Eastgate and Westmoreland Mall. April’s Scripture is Psalm 46:4-11.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
