Dear Parents, Staff, and Students:

At the end of this past week the first quarter of the 2019-20 school year was over – already! It is truly an amazing pace at which the school year races by year after year. As we work through all of the highs and lows associated with the high school experience, I want to thank you for being the light, sharing your gifts, and for the role you play in making our school world class. There is no doubt that with His grace and guidance we will continue to work toward our goal of this being our best year yet!

I want to take a moment to congratulate the golf, XC, and boys soccer teams as they have completed their fall seasons. There were some fantastic moments and at the end of the day each of these groups did a great job representing BC. I would also like to congratulate girls soccer on their state runner up finish this past weekend. It was a hard fought game to play in front of a record-breaking crowd for soccer, and we are proud of you!
