  • Welcome to BCSC


    We hope all students enjoy their summer break from school. Remember that learning never stops for our students. There are lots of engaging activities in our community based around reading, STEM, and the arts.  We encourage all students over the summer to read books for enjoyment, practice basic math skills, and use the great outdoors as a science lab.

    We are looking forward to seeing everyone back in the fall!
