President's Corner

Hello Bethany Families!

As a reminder, school is out all of next week for Thanksgiving. To celebrate all that we have to be thankful for, PTA will be serving all the staff Thanksgiving luncheon on Friday. Please consider dropping off a heartfelt note of thanks to your teacher or the staff, or both, before Friday.

We have our red or grey spirit wear shirts from last year now available for the low price of $3+sales tax each.  First come, first serve at bethanypta.org (login in, add to cart, check out).  Most sizes have at least one shirt available.   If your child is face to face, we will deliver the shirt to their class.  If your child is doing school@home, you can either pick up from the front office or ask us to deliver (within the immediate neighborhood).

School Corner

Entering this festive time of year, as a staff we are so thankful for the opportunity to work with your children!  In spite of the challenges we have been presented by COVID, it has been rewarding to see the resilience within each of your children, your families, and in ourselves.  With the added excitement and stress of the upcoming festivities, I hope you will take the time to share with your children the following:

  • How proud you are of them and their accomplishments
  • That you love them and feel blessed that they are a part of your life
  • That life is richer, fuller and brighter because they are a part of it!

When we return from Thanksgiving Break, I look forward to participating with all who are interested in a Zoom Snack and Chat on December 8th at 1:30.  The snack and chat will be a time for me to share the great things happening on campus and to answer questions that you may have as we move towards the second semester.

We hope you all enjoy a relaxing and joyful Thanksgiving Break.
