Baymonte Celebrates the Arts by Elizabeth Barrett, BCS music director
Black pants, white collars, black paper, metal steps, a handful of earth…have what in common? They are invisible; they bring something else to the surface while they disappear, holding their breath.
Mrs. McNeill and I chose quiet backgrounds, strong frameworks to carry the beauty we see God has given to our students. Color curved and curled on coal-black cardstock. Sound pigments of imagination sat in uniform, stood on metal stairs.
God chose to bless Mrs. McNeill and I with humble servants: strong-armed, selfless people who make themselves invisible to bless their students, their children. Thank you for all you did last Thursday and all you do daily to celebrate the art God has planted here in our soil.
May God continue to bless us with faith to see his selfless Son, the One who made Himself invisible to bring beauty from ashes, the One “…who for the JOY set before Him, endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2).
Soli Deo Gloria!

Baymonte Christian School’s first ever Grandparents and VIP’s Day was a success! We were thrilled to host 133 grandparents and VIPs on Thursday, May 2 for the morning event.
Some highlights of the day included a chapel program led by Mr. Patterson, songs performed by first and third grades directed by BCS music director Elizabeth Barrett, followed by the middle school worship team. Middle school Bible teacher Jared Fujishin delivered a speech relating Moses’ ministry to our current grandparent’s gift of influence in their grandchildren’s lives. BCS Parent Teacher Fellowship hosted a reception followed by time in the classrooms and a lively outside activity time headed by elementary PE teacher Patrice Fernald.
We are so grateful for each parent volunteer and student ambassador who helped make the event run smoothly.
Baymonte Christian School students participated in the ACSI Math Olympics this year. One of our fourth grade students came in second place over all for math reasoning skills. Congratulations to all our participants!

In honor of these grandparents and special guests, Baymonte Christian School is hosting our first ever Grandparents and VIP’s Day. Guests will be invited to our campus mid-morning, attend a special presentation in our chapel, enjoy refreshments, visit classrooms with their student, then have the option to leave together to share lunch at a local restaurant. Click here to submit names and contact information for that special person your student would like to invite so that Baymonte can send a formal invitation to them later this month.
