A blouse and skirt or a dress is preferred for the ladies (dresses and skirts must reach the knee and dresses must have sleeves). Leggings are not pants and may not be worn unless under a dress or skirt that reaches the knee.

For Boys:
Gentlemen should wear dress pants with a polo, dress shirt and tie, or sweater. No jeans, sweatpants, shorts, or sweatshirts will be permitted.

For All:
The modesty guidelines in the student handbook should also be followed and students who disregard the guidelines may be asked to change for the duration of the day. If you have questions about the dress code for Picture Day, please contact the office.

THANK YOU JESUS

“Thank You Jesus.” This simple phrase has been somewhat life-changing for me. I know I’ve heard it said before that giving thanks is a powerful way to change your mindset. And on some level, I even knew this to be true. But as in so many things, I am quick to forget.

Recently the reminder I needed came in the form of some advice spoken during an interview I heard. The question was, “What do you do when you feel overwhelmed, when you need to re-center yourself?” The answer? “Say, thank You Jesus.” It might be followed up immediately with “Help me Jesus”, but the point was that there is something about choosing to thank God right where you are that changes things. And being a person who’s always looking for new ideas and new things to try, I tried it. I specifically remember the moment - I was making my son’s bed in the midst of what my husband and I affectionately (or sometimes not so affectionately) call “the bedtime marathon”, and I had that all-too-familiar feeling like we were never going to get all of the kids to bed. Needless to say the exhaustion and discouragement felt strong. Suddenly I remembered the advice and just prayed “Thank You Jesus.” I thanked God for our beds, and in that moment the heaviness lifted. It was almost surprising what a difference it made, and how quickly it happened.

While I am certainly not expecting this phrase to become a magic button I can press to make everything better, I do hope I can remember for a longer time moving forward that thankfulness matters. That gratitude is powerful. It changes me, and I think it might even change the people around me. I wonder how the world might be changed if more of us started saying “Thank You Jesus.”

Pray with me…

Thank You Jesus…
… for each individual and family represented at Berks Christian School.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6

Thank You Jesus…
… for each individual and family who helps to support Berks Christian School from afar.
Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song. Psalm 95:2

Thank You Jesus…
… for providing daily for our needs.
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Soli Deo Gloria
To God alone be the glory

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: UPDATE: No takers yet since last week, are you able to serve?

We are still in great need for Recess Parents: still need 1 Tuesday, 1 Wednesday, 1 Friday. Being a recess parent is a great way to connect with our students and build relationships with our school community. These volunteers are critical to keeping our students safe and cared for during lunch and recess. Thank you to our 7 parents who have already stepped up, 3 more to go! (We’ll take grandparent recess parents too!)

Thank you to our volunteers!

We’ve had a few people come and help out with a few projects around the building. Are you handy with tools and willing to donate a few hours? We’ve always got a few projects to work on!

Thank you to grandparent Eugene Denlinger who helped install some new swings in our playground and repair some of our desks.

Thank you to alumnus Kris Stutzman who helped with our mulching project and fixing a lot of our lab stools and chairs.

SUMMER READERS CELEBRATE

Each summer, we challenge our elementary students to read toward a goal - either a total number of books or pages - appropriate to their grade level. Many students take up this challenge heartily and we are always delighted to honor those who reached their goal. The prize for those who reached their grade-level goal is a picnic lunch at a local park, and playtime on the playground. Congratulations, elementary summer readers!

Give Us Rest

“I’m so busy and so tired all the time.” Doesn’t it seem like almost everyone feels this way?

I sometimes find myself wondering why it is that almost all of us are tired and busy almost all the time. It seems like we all need to figure out how to rest. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I would venture to say that a song can also speak beyond the words themselves. The video below has both - pictures and a song. May these words and images inspire us as we pray. May they remind us of where it is we need to go to truly find rest. And may all of us who are weary and burdened come to Jesus, where we will find rest for our souls.

One additional thought about words - it can be tempting to think that our prayers are more legitimate or sincere when they are prayed spontaneously, “in our own words.” But when you consider that Jesus taught us to pray with a certain text, expecting us to use the words He gave us, it seems natural to conclude that borrowing prayers that have already been written is just as powerful as coming up with our own.

Pray with me…
… Come, Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
~Charles Wesley

… Lord make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy
Prayer of Saint Francis

…O Eternal God, bless all schools, colleges, and universities
[and especially Berks Christian School], that they may be lively centers for
sound learning, new discovery, and the pursuit of wisdom;
and grant that those who teach and those who learn may find
you to be the source of all truth; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Book of Common Prayer

… Come, Lord Jesus!
Revelation 22:20

Soli Deo Gloria
To God alone be the glory

LUNCH PARENTS NEEDED

Our elementary lunch periods depend on parent volunteers. Teachers get a break over lunchtime, sometimes their only break of the day! To supervise lunch periods, we rely on parents who wipe down the tables before lunch begins, serve food, help students clean up, and then supervise the afternoon recess.

NEED:  1 Tuesday, 1 Wednesday, 2 Friday

If you have free time in your week, will you consider being a Lunch/Recess Parent this year? Current clearances are required, and we are happy to help you acquire them. If you have a child younger than school age, you are welcome to bring him or her along. Commitment can be once a week, or more often! We need at least two parents per day, so pick a friend and sign up together! If you are interested, please email Rebekah Klase at rklase@berkschristian.org

PRAYER MATTERS BLOG

BLESSED

“To be blessed means to let God retell your story.” This is a quote I heard recently from Glenn Packiam, a pastor and author. As he shared his thoughts about being blessed, I was challenged to consider that we often have misconceptions about what it means and what it looks like to be blessed. We tend to think of being blessed as being strong or prosperous or successful. But the truth is, most of the pictures we have in our minds of being blessed are myths. In reality, it is often when we become open about our brokenness that we experience a deeper and more authentic blessing.

In light of this understanding of being blessed, I have to ask myself, what are we really asking when we pray for God to “bless” Berks Christian School? Are we asking for God to make us appear blessed in our own eyes? Or are we asking God to retell our story? To use our brokenness and our frailty and redeem them for His good purposes?

Pray with me…
… for the whole BCS community as we continue to make the transition into school routines
The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress and my Deliverer; my God is my Rock in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalm 18:2

… that this year’s theme of “Rooted” would have a positive impact on the students
Continue to live your lives in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6b-7

… over all of the preparations for our upcoming big fall event, Homecoming (October 5)
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3

Soli Deo Gloria
To God alone be the glory
