A Day In The Life

Walk with us through a day at
Bethany Christian School

Ring, Ring! The school bell says it’s time to start the day.

Each day at Bethany Christian School is an opportunity for your student to grow. The different amenities, classes, and activities students engage in on a daily basis make sure your student develops in a safe, happy environment.

Lunch

Pizza hot lunch is offered on Thursdays for all students. On other days, students should bring a healthy lunch from home. Everyday, students should bring a healthy snack for their morning break. Full-day Preschool students need two snacks per day, morning and afternoon.

Recess

Play is an important part of childhood development, so BCS schedules recess for all students K-8th grade. Our Kindergarten, 1st, & 2nd graders receive an additional 15 minute recess in the morning as well. 3rd through 5th Grades share recess before lunch and Kindergarten through 2nd Grade share recess after lunch. Middle school students have 40 minutes to eat lunch outside at the picnic tables (weather permitting) and play a game of soccer, basketball, or tetherball or just relax with their friends.

Co-Curricular Activities

Each day, each grade experiences one co-curricular activity in addition to their traditional studies. Throughout the week, each class rotates through 35-40 minutes of music, art, physical education, library, and technology.

Encourage your student to pick up an instrument or sing and bring music alive! Instrumental lessons during school hours are available beginning in first grade. Piano and guitar lessons are available for first through eighth graders. Beginning in fourth grade, students may choose different instruments. Many of our students use their new skills and passion to perform in their high school band. Vocal lessons are offered to middle school students only beginning in 6th grade.

Calling all performers! We have a choir for our middle school students (6th-8th). Those students participating meet twice per week during school hours. This year, the middle school choir will share their talents in December at our Christmas concert.

This is a program offered to all preschool through 5th grade students.

Kindergarten through Fifth Grade students can join our Lego Club which meets after school. Each 6 week session is geared to the students abilities to make participation as rewarding as it can be.
