Co-curricular activities offer students ways to explore their gifts and talents through hands on learning and creative opportunities while developing practical life skills. Middle School students take classes such as Technology, and Health. They also choose electives such as Leadership, Choir, Theater and Band. Elementary students go to library, technology, music, art, and PE once or twice weekly. Assemblies such as Veterans Day, Family Christmas Worship and Easter Week encourage student involvement and reflection. Chapel, with a time of worship and an age appropriate message, happens weekly in class groups. Several times per year, students and families are invited to participate in local service projects. Such drives as clothing and food as well as Samaritan’s Purse Christmas gift box assembly give kids a chance to think of selflessly. Middle school students go out into the community each spring to serve in local retirement homes, clean up parks, etc. Each fall and winter 5th/6th and 7th/8th graders go on offsite retreats. Locations in the past have included The Firs Chalet at Mt. Baker, Lakeside Bible Camp on Whidby Island, and Lutherwood Camp on Lake Samish. Retreats include times of worship, fun and discipleship. The PALS program matches up older and younger classes to work together on projects and make friends. To celebrate year end, 8th grade students go on a fun event day and “graduate.” All other students play games at Field Day, followed by an all family BBQ. All activities at BCS aim to build a Biblical Worldview that starts at home and continues in the local church.
