BETHKE BISON BULLETIN

January 1, 2017

Welcome to 2017!

We hope that you and your family had a wonderful Holiday and wish you a safe and happy 2017! It is hard to believe that the first semester is over. Our community came together and opened an amazing school! We can't wait for the amazing learning opportunities coming to our students in 2017.

Is your student ID ready for a new semester?

It's a great time to check with your child to see that they have their ID. They need these for breakfast, lunch and for library checkout. Students are encouraged to wear them throughout the day with a "break away" lanyard.


All students were provided with an ID and lanyard at the beginning of the year. Replacement IDs are $3.00 and lanyards can be brought from home, or purchased for $2.00.


Please help your student locate their ID and lanyard so they are ready for 2017!

Parent Interest for our School Enrichment Model

We've been asking students and teachers about their passions and interest. This information will be used to kick-off our School Enrichment Model after the holiday break. Be on the lookout for your interest flyer this week. We'd like to know what you are passionate about too. We are hoping to invite parents to share in these experiences with our students.

Be mindful of school zones..we need your help!

With increased traffic, we've noticed that not all drivers are obeying the school zone hours and staying alert and off of their cell phones in our school zone. Please help us keep all students and staff safe by adhering to these laws. We appreciate your help!
