End of the School Year Fun: Open House & Carnival

“…then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in Spirit and of one mind.” Philippians‬ 2:2‬ NIV‬‬

Hello Bethany Family,

The school year is rapidly coming to a successful close, but we are not finished yet.

Did you know Bethany Church is now offering in-person service? You have the option to attend the 9am service, 10:45am service or you can live stream the 9am service. Children’s Church is available as well. Check out their website bethanylb.org

Bethany will host its annual Open House Thursday, May 27th. Check In will begin at 5:30pm. Please have the COVID-19 Survey completed before checking in. Please show the confirmation message at Check In. My staff and I are excited to have you on campus perusing through the classrooms and admiring the accomplishments of your child.  We will have vendors on site displaying extracurricular activities for the upcoming school year and more.  It is going to be a great evening.

SPOILER ALERT: I just met with my Summer Fun Team to finalize plans for this year’s summer program. All I can say is “EXTREME!” The summer program is opened for students Preschool through 8th grade.  Preschool begins June 21st and K-8, June 28th.  Our middle school students will serve as Summer Program Counselors and there will be special perks for them. We are filling up fast, enrollment has already exceeded last year.

Did you know Bethany SCRIP gift card prices have been discounted?  For example, AMC cards are normally $10 you can purchase them for $7.  Applebee cards are normally $25 you can purchase them for $18.  Landry cards are normally $50 you can purchase it for $36.  WHAT A BARGAIN!  Stop by the front office to see the latest discounts and purchase a gift card.

PAYMENT PROCESSING FEE: Bethany School’s online payment processing company has increased all fees charged to us☹.  The increase began this past April.  I have absorbed the increased costs and will do so for the remainder of this school year☺.  I realize many of you appreciate the ability to pay your invoice online so I will continue to offer this option; however, I will not continue to absorb costs.  Effective June 17th there will be a change in service fees for all payments made online.  Additionally, debit cards will be processed as a credit card.  Keep in mind, there are no fees for payments made with cash or check and if you pay tuition for the entire school year by August 1st, by cash or check, there is an 8% discount off the total.  Please see the new fee structure outlined below;

  • Paying by check or cash – NO FEE
  • ACH (savings or checking account using routing number and account number) – 1% up to $7.25 max
  • Credit/Debit Card (payments processed from the online invoice) – 2.9%
  • Credit/Debit Card (established auto payments) – 3.2%
  • Credit/Debit Card (on demand; we process the payment at your request) – 3.2%

CARNIVAL:  We will no longer have an end of the year school picnic.  This year we are having a CARNIVAL filled with rides, rock climbing, 6ft slide, petting zoo, Velcro wall, dunk tank and more!  Each student will receive a Bethany Carnival T-shirt and lunch.  Parents you are welcomed to attend this ground breaking end of the year event on Wednesday, June 16th 9-2:30pm.  Volunteers are needed☺.

I cannot thank you enough for making Bethany School, a Future Focused campus, your school of choice. I have so much to be grateful for. I could not do this without wisdom from my God along with the help and the support of my illustrious staff and of course YOU.  I think we make a great team!


Mrs. Tonia Hill
