From the Desk of Mr. Weldon – December 2020

Dear BBCS Family,

School Resumes Monday, December 7

The Holiday Season is upon us!!  We have taken an extended break for Thanksgiving and will return to school tomorrow, December 7, for two weeks of in-school learning before our Christmas Break begins.  We have a lot to look forward to at BBCS in the upcoming weeks, with a preschool and secondary Virtual Christmas program, class Christmas parties, and hitting the books.

Progress Reports

Progress reports will go out next week.  Some students may be given a paper copy by their teachers, but all progress reports will be emailed.  The progress report will look like a report card and will only contain the grade itself.  Log into FACTS to look at the details of each student’s classes and assignments.

Winter Weather

Winter in the Midwest is always unpredictable. We know at times that it may be necessary to close or delay because of ice, snow, or other inclement weather.  Because we are a private, Christian School made up of students from several different school districts, we have many things to consider when making a decision regarding canceling or closing school.  Here are a few things to keep in mind in regards to our cancellation/closing policies. 

  1. We do not make closing decisions based on other districts closing, but on the safety concerns of our student body and families. 
  2. When a closing occurs, the three major local TV stations are notified:  23WIFR, 13WREX and 17WTVO
  3. An email will be sent by the school office with cancellation notifications.
  4. The two methods mentioned previously are how the school communicates a school closing or cancellation.  BBCS teachers may reach out to their own students’ parents individually, but this is not to be expected.
  5. When school is canceled, all daycare and after school activities are also canceled.

2020 Virtual Christmas Program

The 2020 Christmas Program will be pre-recorded and the video will be streamed live on our website bereanschool.com/live and on our Facebook Page @5 PM on Christmas Eve, Thursday, December 24.

BBCS Teacher’s Christmas Gift Fund

Each year at our Christmas Programs we hold an offering for friends and family to donate to the teachers of BBCS. We use this money along with a donation from Berean Baptist Church to help give our teachers a Christmas Bonus. With the changes we have made this year, we think our teachers are well-deserving of a generous Christmas Bonus.

Since we are not able to have an in-person Christmas Program, we are taking the offering Online! We don’t want to make anyone feel obligated to give but wanted to make it available for those who like to give every year. If you would like to donate to the teachers of BBCS, you may do so by visiting bereanbaptist.cc/donate and give through Berean Baptist Church. 

How to Give

  • Visit bereanbaptist.cc/donate
  • Type in the amount you would like to give.
  • Choose the “Berean Christian School” fund.
  • Select when you want the funds to transfer and whether you want the funds to come from a card or bank account.
