From the Director’s Desk

At BAIS, we are proud of our students! As we close out the year, here are just a few great things happening in classrooms across grade levels:

Peer editing their very first four-paragraph essays using the Chromebooks and ‘talking tubes’!

Ms. Ribbens, Grade 3

Students are getting better at singing, playing angklungs, and doing motions in time. They also work very well together. They are improving every single day and I am very satisfied with their progress!

Ms. Taruna, Music

The 7th graders completed an “Anti-Bullying Campaign” where they came up with ways to spread anti-bullying efforts through the school. Their ideas included education through skits, newspapers, and spreading positivity through social media. Their creativity and thoughtfulness was excellent!

Ms. Martin, Counseling

The Grade 6 class has worked together really well to decorate our classroom door and to plan for their SEW car wash. I’m impressed that they each took a job and showed responsibility to accomplish their jobs so that no one had to pick up the slack.

Ms. LaMertha, Language Arts/Bible

The 4th and 5th graders are doing a great job of putting the pieces together to see how the Old Testament pointed to the birth of Jesus.

Mrs. Stanford, Grades 4/5

The yearbook students are taking great initiative! They are working together in the coolest way – using their strengths in yearbook skills to help others. This is the body of Christ working together, but for yearbook! I love it!

Ms. Hall, Yearbook

While reading the Bible during “Dig into Reading”, I had a student ask what the Book of Life was and then asked if his name was in it. I was able to share the Gospel with him (and the group once again). He then said he understood and that his name was in it! So I guess that’s a pretty big “accomplishment”- having that understanding and assurance – I love my job!

Mrs. Squiers, Grade 2

Shout out to Kindergarteners for being able to learn a lot of new things! They’ve been learning how to write a sentence and are doing such a great job in Math. Learn well and have fun at school: “accomplished”.

Ms. Lane, Kindergarten

First Graders are writing on their own – and it’s a BIG deal! I saw some second graders walk up to welcome a student touring BAIS. They asked the students named and engaged in conversation. My heart was so warmed watching Mrs. Squiers teach them to be welcoming.

Mrs. Nainggolan, Grade 1
