BETHKE BISON BULLETIN

May 19, 2019

Last Week of School!

It's hard to believe this is the last week of school. We will be hosting awards ceremonies and wrapping up the year with fun learning experiences. We have had a year full of growth and we are proud of all of our Bison! We hope you have safe and happy summer!

Limit Lunch Visits this Week!

We are expecting large numbers of visitors on campus this week with awards ceremonies. We ask that you refrain from coming to each lunch with your students.


Let them enjoy these last few days of lunch with their classmates.

Congrats to Kalee Harper for being our Volunteer of the Year! We appreciate all our Volunteers!

Bethke Cares about the Kang Family

As you may know, one of our families lost their son, GaRam Kang tragically last weekend. Many of you have asked how we might support them with their loss. We will be collecting cards and gift cards in the front office if you would like to help.


Thank you for keeping this family in your thoughts!

You can NOW TRACK YOUR CHILD'S BUS!

In keeping with the Katy ISD Mission, we continue to strive to be the leader in educational excellence. To that end, your campus has been selected to participate in the Katy ISD GPS Bus Tracking Pilot Program. Global Positioning Systems (GPS) are navigation systems that allow the Transportation Department to electronically track buses. This pilot program will allow parents whose students are currently eligible bus riders to download the EDULOG Parent Portal Lite mobile app in order to track their child’s bus.


After downloading EDULOG’s Parent Portal Lite mobile app, parents can track their child’s bus and watch it move on a map while it is on its route. Additionally, parents will be able to locate their child’s bus in real-time and even set up ALERT ZONE notifications. Instructions related to the installation of the application are attached. You will need a “Campus Code” to access your child’s bus information. Your Campus Code is: 67048402


With this campus code, you can download the Edulog Lite app from the Google Play Store (Android) or the Apple Store, follow the attached directions, and start tracking your student’s bus.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact Lisa Clark at MelissaLClark@katyisd.org.

PLEASE DO NOT DROP STUDENTS OFF ON THE STREET!

Many parents are dropping their students off on the street and then students are walking to the front of the school. We ask that you DO NOT do this. It is unsafe for your children and those driving on Ventana Lakes Parkway. The car rider has been empty as early as 8:05, and that is the safest way to deliver your student to school.


PLEASE DO NOT PUT YOUR OWN CHILD AND OTHERS AT RISK!



Thank you!

Awards Schedule

The schedule for awards is in our upcoming events. We will be modifying our awards ceremony and will only be recognizing a few of our awards in the ceremony. Not all students will receive an award during the awards ceremony. Each grade level will be hosting a celebration after the awards ceremony, which is where the majority of awards will be presented. Your child's teacher will be sending more information soon.
