Reading is Fun with Finnegan

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity for community service and implementing Standard 9: Professionalism. Feel free to ask Marie Humphrey, Shannon Melton, Heather Thorpe, and Sandy Williams to get more information. If you are interested open the flyer (give this to Yolanda) and return to Yolanda by Wednesday. Don’t miss out on the fun!

Remember our Focus

Analyzing the Standards (Stay true to the standard)

Building Capacity (Lifelong Learner)

Conquering the Workshop Model

Stay on Pacing (Super important)

(Master this first and then continue to build capacity to add on.)

JOIN SUNSHINE!!

Sunshine is a fun way to be involved at Bethesda. When you sign up you will get 2 jeans passes!! For only $25 you will receive perks throughout the school year! Join early and don't miss out on Sunshine Breakfasts, Mystery Jeans Days, Baby and Bridal Showers, and our Holiday Party.

Please bring your payments to Julie Warner or place it in her mailbox. Please make any checks out to Bethesda Elementary with the word Sunshine in the memo section. Cash is also accepted. SHINE ON BETHESDA!!!

Early Release

Our early release days for the school year are September 23 & 24 and February 24 & 25. Students will be dismissed at 12:00 noon. We are going to try something new with our early release schedules in September. Rather than everyone having one 25 minute special on Wednesday and one 25 minute special on Thursday, we are going to split the Specials Schedule into two days with 3 specials each day. Everyone will get one 45 minute special, but only on one day, either Wednesday or Thursday. The early release schedule was sent via email and is also available in the Bethesda Handbook on Lotus Notes under Schedules. We feel like this will be more beneficial for instruction in your classroom and in Specials. After early release days, let us know how you liked it. Send your feedback to Ms. Williams through her feed back form at: Staff Perception Feedback.
