A Note From our head of School
The spring season is quickly approaching, per Punxsutawney Phil, and we now have the pleasure of observing the gala committee dropping off items for the upcoming Annual Spring Gala USO 40’s Flair. Each year at this time, I’m reminded how very grateful I am to be a part of a giving and loving community who seeks to touch the lives and hearts of school aged children. We want to spread the word of Bayshore Christian School in the greater Tampa Bay Area. This event is the perfect opportunity to share the Academic Excellence, Christian Values, and Small Class Sizes of Bayshore Christian School. It’s also a great opportunity to give back to our students.
This year alone, Bayshore Christian School initiated a brand new iPad program with our 7th - 12th grade students. The technology infrastructure was upgraded, and faculty and staff have updated and current devices for use in age appropriate classrooms. A new playground is scheduled to be installed in February after permitting. New padding was installed in the gymnasium, and almost 20% of our students were blessed to be a part of the BCS family due to financial aid resources provided by generous donors.
Bayshore Christian School continues to excel in academics. Our upper division students have many opportunities to take Dual Enrollment courses through Hillsborough Community College while here at BCS in the safety of a known and comfortable environment. Our athletes excel on the courts and fields as well as in the classrooms. Students in all grades have explored learning opportunities outside the classroom walls in Washington, D.C.; St. Simons Island, Georgia; Portland, Oregon; and around Tampa Bay.
We are excited to announce we are joining the TBCAL (Tampa Bay Christian Athletic League) to enhance our middle division sports program! Bayshore Christian is a member of the Florida High School Athletic Association; however, we have captured the opportunity to compete with other local Christian schools for our younger student athletes. This will commence in the 2020-2021 school year for our 4th - 8th grade students in the following sports: girls volleyball, boys and girls basketball, co-ed football, co-ed soccer, and co-ed golf.
Most recently, we celebrated our 10th annual Spiritual Enrichment Week. Students’ lives were changed and seeds were planted. We are unashamedly Christian and teach our students the inerrant and infallible word of God. We love and respect each of our students as we guide them through God’s grace to living in truth.
I look forward to sharing a wonderful evening with each of you on Friday, March 27th, at the Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club. A live swing band is expected to entertain us throughout the evening, and you certainly don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to bid on AMAZING teacher services and administrative services such as Head of School for the Day. Please join me! It’s going to be an amazing evening of celebrating Bayshore Christian School.
