Greetings from the faculty and staff of BIA,

As many of you know, we are in the midst of our Advent season.  It is at this moment for which we become reflective about our preparations and readiness for our coming Messiah.  John 1:14 tells us that Christmas is all about God sending Himself to ‘become flesh and dwell among us.”  He does this to give himself up for us, all to restore our relationship and faith in him. It is Jesus who brought light into a dark and sinful world.  He is the unstoppable force who had rescued us from sin, death, and the devil. As we begin our preparations for the end of the year, let us prioritize our faith in him. Let us place focus not on our material possessions, for which we can often times get lost in.  Instead, let us prepare ourselves by acting in His image and His ways.

With the weather likely becoming much more severe as we progress through the winter months, please ensure that students have appropriate clothing and shoes for the weather. Students need to make sure that they have boots and shoes, or 2 extra pairs of shoes to ensure water/mud does not get tracked into the classroom.  It poses a slipping hazard in the classroom.

BIA’s canned good/toy drive will be continuing up until the Thursday before Christmas break (December 20th). At that point, a select amount of 8thgrade students will be delivering contents to local food pantries and shelters in the West Rogers Park neighborhood.’

As a thank you to the students for their wonderful International Festival Performances, students will receive a dress down day on Tuesday, December 11th.

Basketball practice this week for the 7thand 8thgrades is on Tuesday. Certain 5thand 6thgrade players are just wrapping up their basketball seasons and will be joining up with the 7thand 8th
