"Good evening Bethany Families. This is Josh Eanes, Principal at Bethany Elementary School calling with a few announcements for the week.
Virtual learning will continue for all students this week. Please remember, during Virtual Learning, we take daily attendance, assign grades for completed work, and require daily participation. Work should be completed within 7 days of being assigned. Assignments submitted weeks late will not be accepted as it does not provide our teachers an opportunity to grade and provide accurate student feedback.
Wednesday will be a remote instruction day for all students.
Bethany Elementary School will continue serving free breakfast and lunch to any child up to age 18 through the end of this school year, regardless of their free and reduced meal status. Simply come to our school between 11:30am and 1:00pm, Monday through Friday, to pick up your child’s free lunch and breakfast for the next day.
Parents, please join us this Thursday, December 17th as our PTA hosts Cookies with Santa and our annual Toys for Tots Campaign from 5-7pm at Bethany. Santa and Ms. Claus will greet students in a drive thru outside our school and there will be a safe photo opportunity for one family at a time. A Toys for Tots donation box will be stationed near Santa for new, unwrapped toys. Thank you to our PTA for continuing this fun Bethany tradition.
This Friday, December 18th is a scheduled early release day for students. There will be no formal instruction or zoom sessions past 12:15pm. There will be no school from December 21st thru January 4th. Virtual learning will continue for all students on January 5th.
Parents and students, we are so thankful for your continued hard work and support during the first half of this school year. As 2020 comes to a close, we are continually hopeful for a more normal 2021. From all of us here at Bethany, we hope you and your family have a restful, safe and memorable Holiday Season. Please enjoy the rest of your evening and we look forward to a great week."
