“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,” Philippians 3:13 NIV
Dear Bethany Families,
Bethany is a Future Focused campus. Our mission and vision statement has lead to the success of every graduating eighth grade student as they have all been accepted into their school of choice as well as their desired program. My heart is full. Most of the eighth graders began in Preschool giving me the honor to be a part of their growth academically socially and Spiritually. We will celebrate them and their many accomplishments this June.
With only three and a half months of school left, preparations for both summer and fall are in full effect. Our students have had a solid year of rigorous learning as well as the opportunity to grow and thrive.
Registration forms were sent home affording you priority enrollment. The early bird discount ends March 5th. There is still time to turn in your child’s form and secure his/her place. Monday, February 22nd is Open Enrollment to the public. Every family that was placed on Bethany’s waiting list will be in line to enroll their child(ren). On that day I will implement ‘first come, first serve’ for all grade levels Preschool through 8th grade.
Mrs. Arlene Gale’s Time Machine book fair is doing quite well. Volunteers are still needed. Please call if you can give a few hours of your time. She needs just a bit more help. Grandparents Day at the library is this Friday from 7:30-4pm. Screenings and social distance will be implemented to ensure a safe and fun time for all.
Parents, below are noteworthy dates as we finish the month of February.
- 2/18 Book/Character dress up day. We will have a contest for the best character.
- 2/18 Pre-K Kindergarten preview day.
- 2/19 Grandparents Day (7:30-4pm please enter through gym doors off Clark Avenue).

Lastly, PM Daycare will resume next Monday 2/22. Your child will be able to remain at school, for an hourly fee, until 6pm. Whoo hoo!
Thank you for making Bethany your school of choice. My staff and I do our absolute best by continuing to work in excellence for every student. It’s our calling. It’s what we do.
Mrs. Tonia Z. Hill
