"Good evening Bethany Families. This is Josh Eanes, Principal at Bethany Elementary School calling with a few announcements for the week.
I would first like to wish all of our mothers a very special Mother's Day. We hope you enjoy your day and thank you for all your support.
Parents, as we start another week of school I want to remind you to please contact your child’s teacher or our school prior to sending a child to school if they have symptoms, have been tested for COVID, have a family member that has been tested for COVID or have been exposed to COVID. Our school staff will help determine appropriate next steps for attending school safely. We will work with you to be sure your child still attends school virtually without an absence. This step helps ensure our school remains safe and open for students.
Parents, Bethany Elementary will collect school issued chromebooks this week. A purple info sheet was sent home with students this past Friday regarding leased chromebooks. Please return this form with your child’s school issued chromebook, in their bookbag, one day this week. All chromebook chargers and RCS hotspots should be returned also. All devices should be returned by this Friday, May 14th. If you prefer to drop off the device to ensure receipt, you may do so at your convenience any day this week between 8am-4pm. Students attending school virtually for the remainder of this school year will return chromebooks at the end of the school year and do not need to return them this week.
Bethany Elementary will be hosting a 6 week Summer Acceleration Academy for students providing remediation in all academic areas. The camp will begin on June 14th and run through the end of July. Transportation and breakfast/lunch will be provided. Initial invitations were sent home this past week. Please know these invitations were based off of mid-year assessments completed this past February. We are currently administering end of year assessments and final invitations for Summer Acceleration Academy will be sent home soon. If your child received an invitation this past week, please return the bottom portion of the form letting us know of your interest.
All Bethany library books are due to the media center by next Friday, May 21st. Please help by locating and turning in all books by this date.
Bethany Elementary is still enrolling kindergarten students for the 2021-2022 school year. If you have a student that will enter kindergarten next year or know of a family with a kindergarten age student, please call our school at 336-951-2710 or come by our front office to pick up an enrollment packet.
Parents, our Bark Blast Water Day is approaching fast! This year’s fun will take place on Friday, May 28th. Many fun activities are planned for our students. As we prepare, we are in need of the following items: pump hand sanitizer, clorox wipes, water hose, can drinks and bottled water. If you are able to donate, please deliver the items to the front office no later than May 21st.
Please enjoy the rest of your evening and we look forward to a great week of school."
