On Friday, November 9th, the BCS Kindergarten & Preschool celebrated St. Martin’s Lantern Festival where children, families and teachers came together to celebrate the tradition of sharing and exhibiting generosity within our community. Sharing one’s light is something that children begin to learn very early on in life. At BCS, we are fortunate to have a vital part in teaching the importance of sharing to children on a daily basis. From sharing a crayon to sharing a hug or kind word to a friend in need, it all begins as a child.
