BAIS UPDATE

Why is Community so Important?

At BAIS, something consistently mentioned by our graduating seniors is their appreciation for the connections and strong sense of community they’ve felt during their time with us. While community can look differently for many of us, one central factor remains at the core: Christ. We can identify our sense of belonging to an institution through sports, academics, clubs, or even time spent with friends after school. However, the fact that Christ unites us all, in purpose and in truth, shows that BAIS is more than a school. It is a place where students, parents, and teachers experience true community.

Mr. Julian and I have had the privilege of speaking with our incredible 12th grade students this week as we conducted their “senior exit interviews.” These interviews are a tradition at BAIS where our 12th grade students (seniors) have the opportunity to share about their experiences as a BAIS student. We listened to them tell about how they’ve achieved our four expected student outcomes: Biblical Application, Active Living and Learning, Innovative and Informed Thinking, and Social Responsibility. Highlights, recommendations, and stories of growth were also shared by each one.

Each student shared in one way or another how important community and care are here at BAIS, and that it should never change. Year after year, students cultivate lasting relationships with one another and with our teachers. As a result, we recognize that true achievement and growth happen when students feel safe, supported, and understood. And, from the mouths of our “almost alumni”, this is something they will always carry with them.

Thank you for being a part of our community. We’re glad you’re here.

MATH/SCIENCE DEPT. UPDATE

Fun Math/Science Competition 

You’ve grasped an important scientific theory, concept, or principle. Now can you share your insight? Take part in the Breakthrough Junior Challenge, create a short video (one minute and thirty seconds max) to explain a big idea in one of these fields:

  • Physics
  • Mathematics
  • Life Sciences

Your film can take any form you like: animation, talking head, documentary, dramatic reconstruction, whatever. It’s worth keeping in mind that video is a dynamic visual medium – using diagrams, simulations, physical demonstrations etc. is a lot more effective than standing in front of a blackboard talking. Full details here www.breakthroughjuniorchallenge.org

All Glory for God’s Glory.
