Why do parents and teachers choose Bookcliff?

Sanchez Family

Meet the Sanchez family and hear how God led them to serve our school and our community:

Hello, my name is Chelsee Sanchez and I am a preschool teacher at BCS!  My husband, Josh and I got married 7 years ago in Hawaii, where he was stationed for the army. After four years we moved to the northwest trying to find what our life was meant for. Eventually, we moved to Josh’s hometown, GJ, where we started our family. Our first child Alana Wrynn was born and two years later our son, Remington Charles was born. Josh and I grew up very differently. His family didn’t have much involvement in a church where as my family was constantly involved. I grew up attending youth group and camps, and a mission trip to Mexico. When I met Josh, our differing religious backgrounds wasn’t a concern for me, I felt he was meant for me. For the first couple years of marriage we chose not to attend church or talk about religion, because it became an argument.

lambert family

Meet the Lambert family and hear their story of leaving and returning to BCS:  

We are the Lambert family. My name is Erin, my husband is Jeremy and our six year old daughter is Allie.  My husband and his family have been Bookcliff Baptist members for 30+ years and I began attending with Jeremy 11 years ago.  Allie attended BCS pre-school and had a wonderful experience.  Heading into Kindergarten, we struggled with whether to send her to BCS or public school. We continually went back and forth on the decision.  Public school was free, near our house, offered 1/2 days, and we wouldn't have to worry about the transition from private to public when the time came.

Jewkes

Meet the Jewkes family and hear about their personal journey, and what Bookcliff means to them.

Hello, my name is Sarah, and I’d like to tell you about my beautiful family.  My husband, Keenan, is a navy veteran and a brainy mechanical engineer at CoorsTek.  Keenan works hard and is a wonderful leader and provider for our family.  Our eight year old son, Joshua, is a lively young man with a brilliant mind full of history and fun facts.  He loves sports, reading and dressing up like historical figures from the past.  Jerilynn, our six year old daughter, is a free spirited and encouraging little lady who loves art.  She is creative and helpful and she loves quality time with her loved ones.  I am a medical assistant for Primary Care Partners in pursuit of my Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing.  I enjoy spending time with family and friends and take much pride in caring for and helping support my family.  Sounds picture perfect, right?  Well, since we are a bunch of families intertwined through our children and school doing life together, I feel it’s only fair to have a little vulnerability and let you all know that where we are today and where we started are two very different places.  

I can’t begin to thank my daughters teachers and staff at Bookcliff enough for all of the care and encouragement they have giving her this year. As a parent with a child who had not been in daycare or in anyone’s care other than her grandmothers it was terrifying for me to leave her at first. She has grown so much over the last year and I am so thankful my husband and I made the decision to take her to Bookcliff.

It is always clean, the teachers are always genuinely happy and pleasant, and they cultivate a happy positive atmosphere that my daughter is thriving in.

the Hardricks

Going to BCS gave me a very firm standing in my Christian faith. The teachers there were able to show me Christ in ways that have remained with me through my adolescence and that I plan to carry on into adulthood as well. Spending time with strong Christians at such a formidable age helped me become the person I am today.

Haydon

I am so thankful my parents were able to send me to a Christian school with such loving and caring staff and teachers. It was a different transition from public to private school. I can’t say I didn’t make mistakes, but through God’s grace I made it through high school still wanting to go to church and not straying away from God’s plans for me. Which makes BCS’s motto verse, Proverbs 22:6, perfect: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old he will NOT depart from it.” Thank you teachers, staff, and friends of BCS!

Laci

During my time at BCS, I was able to form close, lifelong relationships with many people. BCS instilled in me positive values that have served me well in my jobs, high school, and college career. Most importantly, however, BCS gave me a solid foundation in Christian values and knowledge that has blossomed into a passionate relationship with Jesus—and I will always be thankful for that
