Annual “Talent Night”
This special evening is designed for the entire family so that your children can have a performance opportunity to showcase their fine arts training. We welcome speech, drama, art, and musical contributions for this program.
Moms’ nights will take place 3-4 times over the course of the year and are intended for support and information on various topics of interest.
Auditions will be held in November at Burge Terrace. Drama camp will meet each afternoon from 1:00-4:30 during a week in February. The performance will be scheduled for Saturday afternoon of the designated Drama Camp week. Please contact Alicia Estes at email@example.com if you are interested.
Academic Festival & Science Fair
This special evening is designed for the entire family so that your children can have the opportunity to showcase their academic achievements from this school year. Tables will be set up in the Family Life Center of Burge Terrace Baptist Church to display whatever project(s) you choose to highlight. Each student should be prepared to stand next to his/her display and explain it to observers. Possible topics include (but are not limited to): literature, biography, essay, history, geography, science, agriculture and/or gardening, math, computer programming, architecture, visual arts in any medium (painting, drawing, photography, etc.), textiles (sewing, tailoring, clothing design, knitting, crochet, etc.), any kind of research or well-developed hobby—the sky is the limit!
Any category of work may be displayed with the exception of music and drama performances. Those are featured at our annual Talent Night in October.
BTCS/BTHE Picnic & Field Day
For students in grades K5-6th.
We will join forces with Burge Terrace Christian School for a fun day of field activities. Our annual “Indy 500 Tricycle Races” and team relays are included. There is a $4.00 charge for participation in Field Day which includes lunch and team t-shirt. Because of the logistics involved, only BTHE member families may participate in this activity.
Early Literacy Intervention
Sessions ($18.00 each) are offered on Wednesdays and can be done 1:1 or in a small group setting of 2-3 students. A reading assessment will be done using the Rigby Benchmark. The goal is for students to make connections, gain confidence, and increase their reading level and comprehension.
Standardized Academic Testing for Grades K5-10th
The Iowa Test of Basic Skills (Complete Battery E) is offered to those enrolled as BTHE academic students only. A separate fee will apply to cover materials.
High School & Kindergarten Graduation in the Auditorium
We will celebrate the achievements of our kindergarten and high school graduates at our 28th annual home education graduation service. Please note that all graduates participating will need to attend the rehearsal with cap in hand. At least one parent from each graduate’s family must attend rehearsal as well.
