Elementary Activities (K - 6th)

 

Our Elementary students stay active and engaged, participating in a variety of educational and enriching activities throughout the school year!  Here are just a few of the many activities we offer!


Academic Enrichment


Field Trips (1st - 6th)

 

Off-site field trips are planned for all students grades one through six.  Every field trip connects to and supports the curriculum, giving students a hands-on, engaging extension of what is learned in the classroom.  Some examples of field trips may include
    •    Aquarium of the Pacific
    •    California Science Center
    •    Lancaster Performing Arts Center
    •    Los Angeles Zoo
    •    Museums
    •    Planetarium and LA Griffith Observatory


ACSI District Spelling Bee (1st - 6th)

 

Our top spellers compete against other schools in the annual District Spelling Bee for a chance to participate in the Final Spell-Off.  The top four spellers in the District Bee go on to Regionals to compete for a chance to advance to Nationals!


Math Olympics (1st - 6th)

 

Each year, our top math students spend weeks preparing for the annual Math Olympics, where they compete with other schools for top honors in math skills.


Science Lab (1st-6th)

 

Students are invited to the junior high science lab for hands-on lab experimentation.  Experiments are an extension of textbook learning and provide an opportunity for students to discover scientific methods and processes.


Science Fair (3rd-6th)

 

Students learn to hypothesize, write reports, and build projects.  Projects are showcased and adjudicated, and awards are presented to winners during an awards assembly that parents are invited to attend.


Captain Carl's Mobile Tide Pool (Kindergarten - 3rd)

 

See and touch starfish, sea cucumbers, sea anemones, and crabs!  You never know what you’ll find at Captain Carl’s mobile tide pool.  This exciting hands-on learning experience gives students a unique insight into marine life.


ACSI Creative Writing Festival (4th - 6th)

 

Writing is yet another way of creating and expressing artistic gifts!  In the classroom, students have the chance to hone their creative writing skills while learning important English skills. In the ACSI Creative Writing Festival, young writers' work is evaluated by judges, with superior works in each division and category advancing to the regional level.  Select poems, essays, and short stories are even published!


Athletic Opportunities


 

Jog-A-Thon (all)

 

Encourage healthy habits and help equip your classroom!  The BCS Jog-A-Thon is our major annual fall fundraising event.  Each student participating receives a Jog-a-Thon t-shirt, and prizes are awarded for different category winners (most laps run, most pledges collected, etc.).  Funds raised are used to enhance technology and learning in the classrooms.


Intramurals: Volleyball and Basketball (4th-6th)

 

Optional after school programs led by our experienced coaches focus on teaching students the basic rules and skills of each sport and the philosophies of teamwork, self-discipline, and practice.  Our intramural sports are volleyball and basketball.  Each participant receives an intramural t-shirt!


Field Days/Swimming (5th - 6th)

 

Antelope Valley College (AVC) Physical Education students work with our upper elementary students during four sessions each fall and spring.  AVC students plan games and activities to teach BCS students new skills.
