"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 this week at 7:25am and they may report directly to their classroom. Students wishing to pick up breakfast in our cafeteria will do so before heading to their classroom to eat. Our tardy bell rings at 7:45am each morning. We have seen an influx in tardies over the past week. Students arriving late to school must be signed in by a parent at our front door. Please do not drop students off at the front of our school without walking them to our front entrance for safety.
This Friday, September 24th is a Teacher workday. There is no school for students.
Fall pictures and yearbook photos will be taken this Wednesday, September 22nd. An information packet and order form came home this past week for those wishing to order pictures. We will have photo retakes on Monday, October 18th for those not in attendance this Wednesday.
Parents, mark your calendars for next Monday, September 27th as our PTA hosts ‘Pizza with the PTA’ for our first meeting of the year. The meeting will take place at 6pm in the gym. Masks are required for those attending and social distancing will be expected. Students attending will participate in safety training provided by our local friends from various emergency services!
Our 2021-2022 yearbook is now on sale! Yearbooks cost $30. To order, please visit www.yearbookforever.com. Parents, our annual Bethany Fall Festival will take place Saturday, October 9th from 12-6pm. Our PTA needs volunteers each year to make the festival a success. If you are interested in volunteering, please return the interest form that was sent home or reach out to your child’s teacher.
Lastly, parents, please continue to help our school stay safe and open for in-person learning 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. We’ve had a great start to this year and that is attributed to your proactive communication with 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!"
