FBCS is happy to introduce a fresh look in our P.E. uniforms. The new uniforms will be required for the 2014-2015 school year. Knowing that many of you may need to purchase items for the spring, we are making these available now. If you are purchasing for the spring, only purchase the new uniforms. There is also a new way to purchase your P.E. uniforms. All P.E. uniforms will be purchased directly with Uniform Source. To make sure you have the best fit for your student, you now have a store to shop in. We are looking forward to the new look and hope that giving you a way to try things on before you purchase them will make the process easier for you.

Science Fun Day
We had an awesome science fun day at FBCS. We started off the day with two scientists - one from the Fire Safety Village and one from CSX railroad. Then the students had three rotations of science experiments and ended the day with a science performance from Big Thinkers Science. The kids LOVED it. Ask your children about it. Our kindergarten - 6th grade students will have the opportunity to extend this science fun day by signing up for the Big Thinkers After School Program starting on January 21. A session runs 6 weeks for only $75. The registration info was sent home in student folders on 12-6-13 on a bright green sheet of paper. Just follow the directions on the form to sign up directly with Big Thinkers. Our science fair is also coming up on February 10-12, 2014. Registration forms are due back now. To get a taste of the fun the students had today, have a look at these pictures.
Abundant Life Coffee
Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
Following this time honored proverb, Abundant Life Coffee Group teaches the Lenca Indians how to fish, so to speak. There aren't any fish in the Honduran Mountains, but there is plenty of rich soil complimented by an ideal climate, making this one of the premier coffee growing regions in the world. Abundant Life Coffee Group is committed to bringing long term, sustainable economic opportunity and relief to the Lenca Indians of Honduras.
The FBCS PTF has chosen to partner with Abundant Life Coffee as a fundraiser for both the school and Abundant Life. This fundraiser helps both groups by enabling us both to do kingdom work. Abundant Life Coffee will give 35% of all sales back to FBCS. Please join the PTF in their endeavor to support FBCS and Abundant Life Coffee.
To make it convenient for you, coffee purchases are made at the link below and it will be delivered to the school for pick up.
First Baptist Christian School is located in historic downtown Kennesaw, Georgia. FBCS has been a ministry of Kennesaw First Baptist Church since 1969.
At FBCS, we believe children should be taught in an environment that nourishes their relationship with God and taught by teachers that are deeply committed to Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative word of God. It is the basis from which education stems (1 Peter 1:21).
FBCS is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International.
