One of the most enjoyable things about being at a school is the opportunity to meet new people and establish new friendships. This year, more than any year in the past, students and staff have been elated to interact with friends, both old and new, and continue to build those positive connections in our lives. It has been wonderful having students back on campus. While we miss the physical presence of our friends continuing in the Plano @home virtual school, having the chance to reconnect with them, even virtually, has been a great blessing both for the staff and students.
While building friendships is a highlight for students and staff alike, one of the harder parts of school is saying goodbye to those whose path take them to new experiences in different locations. We miss our friends who move to a different school or city. Many of those friendships will slowly fade away over time, but the memories of experiences shared together will linger forever. On October 30th, one of our schools greatest friends will be moving to Oklahoma for new adventures. Mrs. Alicia, we thank you for all that you have contributed during your time at Bethany and wish you nothing but the best in all that life has in store for you. Just as all the students and staff who have ever been at Bethany, you will always be part of the Bethany Bunch family.
