AboutWelcome to Cycle I
Cycle I is the lower half of BBS Elementary, comprising grades 1, 2, & 3.
The department head for Cycle I is Lea Sakr.
Our mission is to prepare students in mind, body, and spirit to meet the challenges of the world around them. As such, the school continues to share the spiritual concerns of its founders. We seek to promote the love of God in all we do, to liberate the mind and soul from the bondage of ignorance and fear. Our task as a learning community is to help students flourish socially, spiritually, and academically.
In John 8:32, Jesus tells us: “You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” In some ways, this is the bedrock of a solid education: discovering the truth.
We build our community—our curriculum, our interactions with students and family, our staff relations—on this value, the value of truth. It is one of the principles that set us apart.
A Message From
Head of Cycle I
Welcome to Cycle I !
Our grade 1, 2, and 3 classrooms, hallways, and playgrounds all colorful, fun, and neat, yet empty without their young learners. Online learning has created empty school buildings where students can only be seen through a screen. Several things have changed, but many remain the same. We keep our love constant for every learner. Their giggles and voices, whether though the screen or in class, still take room in our hearts.
We help and support learners to thrive and believe in themselves. We challenge them into becoming risk-takers. We cater to their needs to push them to accomplish their goals. Their friendships and relationships matter to us; cyberbullying is never tolerated! We stimulate their imagination, and creativity; yet, we get inspired by them. We ensure they appreciate learning so they will become life-long learners. We encourage them to make mistakes. Yes mistakes! “Because a person who has never made a mistake, has never tried anything new.” -Albert Einstein
Online learning might have changed things, but the things that matter remained the same. Until we meet again, all the love and safe wishes from Cycle I to you!
