Annual Fund

money-plant_shutterstock_35780416.jpg

Each year our operating budget depends on gifts toward the Annual Fund. This year our goal is $15,000. You, as a current parent, will soon receive a letter asking you to consider a year-end donation to the Annual Fund. Please consider doing so, or add it to your Christmas list! Maybe someone who would normally buy you an unnecessary gift would be willing to gift an equal amount of money to Berks Christian School this Christmas!

Student Spectators at Games

We love having students cheer on our basketball teams! Students may only stay after school on game days if the first game starts by 4pm. If the games are later than 4pm students must go home and come back for the games. Students staying after school for a game must go to the cafeteria to do homework until the game starts. Before the game begins students should pay their $2 admission fee and sit on the bleachers to watch and cheer. Parents please plan on picking up your student as soon as the games end.

Volunteer Coach Needed

We are looking for a volunteer Middle School Boys Basketball Assistant Coach. Prior coaching experience is preferred, but not required.

Christmas Concert 2017

elem choir 2.JPG

It's time to think about Christmas already! As you put your holiday schedule together, you should first remember that there are two Christmas concerts this year: one at BCS and one at West-Mont, our partner school in the fine arts.

BCS Concert: Tuesday, December 12 - All elementary students, along with secondary band and choir students

WCA Concert: Friday, December 15 - Secondary band and choir students (transportation will be provided to and from West-Mont for the concert; please look for the permission slip). Dress code is the same for both concerts.

Details for the Tuesday, December 12 concert at BCS

Instructions for Elementary:
Please wear dressy Christmas clothes and arrive by 6:30 pm. Students in grades K through 3, report to your classroom. Students in grades 4 and 5, report to the library. After their performance, elementary students will sit with parents for the remainder of the concert.

Instructions for Middle and High School Performers:
Middle School and High School Choirs: Report at 6:30 pm to the cafeteria
Middle School and High School Bands: Report at 6:15 pm to the sanctuary
Middle School / High School Gentlemen dress code (band and choir): Black dress pants, black dress shoes, black socks, long-sleeve white dress shirt, tie (solid color or small print)
Middle School / High School Ladies dress code (band and choir): Solid white dress blouse (no sweaters or anything low cut), solid black skirt (knee length or longer, full length is preferred), black dress shoes, neutral colored nylons

Please note: MS / HS Choir and Band are performance-based classes and performances should be considered akin to a final exam. For this reason, attendance at the concerts is mandatory. Unexcused absences will result in a significant drop in the grade. Any planned absences must be in writing and submitted to the BCS office before the concerts.

Winter Weather Procedures

snowy road.jpg

Early Dismissals
Berks Christian School will never independently call an Early Dismissal. If, during the school day, weather concerns cause our transporting districts to pick up their students early:
1. BCS typically continues its normal school day to its completion since there will usually be at least one district that does not close early.
2. You as a parent, regardless of your local district, may pick up your child early to avoid oncoming messy weather. Just report to the office and have your child sign out. Also call your district to let them know, especially if there are not many on that bus on a normal run.
3. The school office will often dismiss student drivers before roads get bad, even before their assigned transporting districts show up to BCS. These drivers may also take approved riders with them, if prior parental permission has been given from both sets of parents involved.
4. All that leave early are responsible for any work they miss.

Delays
When BCS calls a two hour delay, we will send a parent alert, just as we would if school were cancelled for the day. When your district calls two hour delay but BCS is starting on time, you follow your district's schedule. If your student rides the bus it will come two hours after the normal time (but your child's attendance record will not be affected by this). If you'd like to bring your student to school at the normal BCS start time, that is an option too, but not required. You can find out if your district has a delay by checking here. (Consider adding this link as a bookmark so you can find it again!) Also remember that if there is a delay, there will be no hot lunch orders taken.

Midterms: Just Around the Corner

temp midterm schedule 2017.png

It’s that special time of year: Christmas trees, carols, and cookies can mean only one thing: it’s time for midterms! There are lots of great resources on the internet, so get started with this list, and then try a search for some more detailed help.

1. Most important tip: Don’t cram. It doesn’t work. No really, it doesn’t. Your brain wasn’t designed that way. Break up your studying into small, manageable chunks over many days. 
Hint: you should get started now.
Bonus: give yourself mini-breaks of 5-10 minutes in between chunks of work.

2. Never just read. Reading your notes and textbook are time consuming, and research shows us that it doesn’t do a lot of good to increase your skill.

3. Don’t be deceived by recognition. Many of us study by looking at the review sheet and say to ourselves, “I know that.” That’s what we call recognition. It won’t help you on a test. Instead, aim for recall – being able to talk about it or explaining it without any words on the page prompting you. To get to recall, you need numerous, spread out sessions of re-learning (aka studying well.)

4. So how can you deepen your memory to get to that all-important recall? Engage as many of your senses as you can. Read the information, say the information, listen to the information, even take a walk while talking about the information. Engage as many mental processes as you can. Draw a picture of it, write it as a poem, or try write a song.

5. The best study tool? Teach the information to someone else.

6. The best memory tool? Find a way to connect the information to something you care about or something personal, even if it is a silly connection. Your brain will automatically want to remember it. 

And now, four more practical tips:

7. Set up a desk at home. Research shows that if you study in an environment closer to the test conditions, you’ll do better on your test. So try the kitchen table or a desk instead of your bed or a couch.

8. Sleep, Sleep, Sleep, Sleep. Sleep deprivation is a sure way to lower your grade. When you’ve put in the smart preparation of breaking up your studies, call it a night and get some shuteye.  

9. Related: leave your phone in the kitchen. Get better sleep by not looking at screens the hour before you go to bed. Also related: leave your phone in the kitchen, so your phone doesn’t keep you up until 1 AM.

10. Get some exercise and eat healthy food. Yes, these two things make a huge difference. You can do this, my dear students. Finish the semester well. In all things, to the glory of God.

Book Blurb: Hello, Ruby

social-icon-ab93e5249e8555e0e27f8c45c263d00b.png

Hello, Ruby by Linda Liukas

While computer coding seems to be a technical thing only 20 year-old nerds do in their parents’ basement, it can be an activity done by more than just those people. Linda Liukas hopes to familiarize all young children with the language of computers in her book Hello, Ruby. She integrates the concepts of code with other concepts children are already learning at that age and simplifies it to make it understandable and enjoyable.

Parent Participation in Selling Concessions

As we communicated at the Winter Athletics Meeting we are asking that each family serve in our concession stand twice during the basketball season. If you haven't yet signed up, please do so here by Friday, December 1st. It is very important that we have each family take their two turns in order to have all the games covered.

We do have an opt out option at $20 per game but we ask that you only use that if you absolutely cannot help. Any adult from your family can be the one to help out in the stand. When you sign up, we also ask if you can leave a comment with what you will be bringing to sell in the concession stand that night (walking tacos, pizza, sloppy joe, baked good, etc.) because the more options we have to sell the more money that can be raised for our athletic programs.

Volunteer Coach Needed

We are looking for a volunteer Middle School Boys Basketball Assistant Coach. Prior coaching experience is preferred, but not required.
