From the BAIS Chaplain

On Friday March 19 we will be having Spiritual Emphasis Week (SEW) One Day event. SEW is always an amazing time at BAIS where we set aside time in the school schedule to go deeper with the students on matters of faith. Our prayer is that God will use this time to draw students to a personal relationship with the Lord or to take steps forward in their faith.

This year the SEW schedule will be as follows:
  • Friday March 19
    • Elementary: 9:00am-11:30am
    • Secondary: 9:00am-12noon

Our theme for SEW is Among Us. When we realize in the good and even in the bad times of life that God is Among Us and will “never leave us or forsake us” we truly become Fully Alive. We have a powerful time planned for our Elementary students and you will be receiving more information on that soon. For our secondary students we have a great lineup of speakers that include our Director Mr. Thomas, Elementary Principal Mr. Cantrall, School Counselor Ms.Martin, and IT Director Mr. Amu will be challenging and encouraging our students.

I would like to ask you to do two things:

  1. Would you partner with us in prayer and ask God to help this be a transformative day in the lives of our students?
  2. Make this a priority for your children.

If your students have have been coming to campus on Friday they will be on campus for SEW and if they have participated in the Meets on online they will participate in SEW virtually. Either way we will make this time a priority for your students and we will believe that God will work in their lives.

We can not wait to see all that God does in our student body at SEW this year.

Fully Alive in Christ,

Jason Whitehurst
Chaplain

Lobby Area Update

Lobby/Waiting Area: In an effort to successfully comply with the regulations which have been given to us by local authorities, we ask that parents, students, and helpers avoid waiting in the lobby areas while school is in session. These areas should remain clear, except for those who have scheduled appointments. Drop-off and pick-up should be done using the vehicle lane out front. Some exceptions may apply, but we ask that everyone try their best to help us stay in compliance. Please be sure communicate with your child’s teacher or the office if you have any questions.

Thank you for your continued support!
