Lunch Program

In order to better serve you, we have revamped our daily lunch program. You will notice weekly consistent meal options to aid in your planning, healthier child appropriate options, and more variety each given day. Recognizing that we serve three year old to twelve year old students, there are three new serving size options to choose from daily.

The Workshop is a six week musical theatre experience directed by Stacey Forbes. She has a B.M. with an emphasis in vocal performance. As a director of children’s musicals, a local voice coach and an elementary music teacher, Stacey has an experienced background in working with students of all ages, but elementary-aged students are her favorite. She will be directing a six week musical theater opportunity where the students will grow as singers, actors or dancers! Students will be assigned a musical theatre scene(s). They will be coached weekly in their singing and acting so as to grow in their abilities, confidence and stage presence. This opportunity is meant to encourage students to enjoy the stage, learn new skills as performers and grow as musicians! The Workshop will end with a performance for family and friends on May 18th, 2017.

Discipline

Our major concern when dealing with a discipline problem with a student is to foster growth and positive change in that student. Biblical discipline focuses on love as the motivation for discipline. Proverbs 3:12 states, “because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.” We believe love must be evident in discipline if a child is going to grow positively from the correction and consequence. The student needs to know he/she is greatly cared about but the behavior is not permissible; there is forgiveness, yet consequences still must be enforced to be fair and consistent. A great parallel to this is the life and death of Christ. We are deeply loved despite our sin and forgiven when we repent, asking for God’s grace. However, a price for our sin must be paid. Christ’s death paid the price for believers to be forgiven and spend eternity with God in Heaven. As a righteous judge, God is consistent with all of His creation, not having special exceptions for some while others have consequences for sin. Just as God shepherds His people, we guide students in character and spiritual development, which is our major goal when disciplining a student.

BCS utilizes a color card system in its disciplinary process for violation of school and classroom expectations. Students are encouraged to display positive behavior and can receive classroom and school-wide recognition for going above and beyond basic expectations.

Community Service

Brooklake Christian School students raise funds to sponsor needy children, hold an annual canned food drive to support local food banks, and seek to serve those in need through a variety of class and school-wide service projects.
