Good Evening students and parents. This is Josh Eanes, Principal at Bethany Elementary School calling with a few announcements for the week.
Doors will open for all students tomorrow at 7:25am and they may report directly to their classroom. Students wishing to pick up breakfast in our cafeteria may do so before heading to their classroom to eat. Our tardy bell rings at 7:45am each morning. Students arriving late to school must be signed in by a parent at our front door.
Parents, second quarter report cards will be sent home this Tuesday, January 25th. I encourage you to stay in touch with your child’s teacher and follow up with any questions you may have about your child’s academic progress once report cards are received.
Bethany Elementary is excited to welcome our community Reading Buddies back to campus this week for the first book giveaway of the year. Each student in our school will receive 2 free books as we try to support literacy at home. Our school sends a huge thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Dixon and Pastor Johnson from Glencoe United Methodist Church for supporting this effort each year. We look forward to additional giveaways later this year.
The Rockingham County Board of Education is seeking community input to help shape their search for the next superintendent of Rockingham County Schools. Students, parents and community members are invited to complete a survey found on our RCS District website, www.rock.k12.nc.us. Surveys should be completed by Friday, February 4th.
Lastly, please continue to help our school stay safe by keeping students who are sick, showing symptoms of COVID or have been exposed to COVID at home until you have talked with our school for the safest next steps. Also, if your child has been tested for COVID, please keep them home until results return. If your child tests positive for covid, please keep them at home and notify our school. Our goal is to work with families so that we can continue to operate, in-person, safely.
Please enjoy the rest of your evening and we look forward to seeing you bright and early tomorrow morning!
