Farwell to 2016-2017

What an AMAZING first year we have had! It seems like only a few weeks ago we were welcoming our students into our beautiful building and now it's time for us to wish them a happy summer! I sincerely appreciate all of your help, suggestions, support and you sharing your children with us. This year has been one filled with new beginnings and I can't wait to see where our "herd" goes in 2017-2018. I wish you a summer filled with happy times and memories. We will see you all SOON!!

Stay tuned, as I will be sending out updates throughout the summer!

It's Time to Celebrate our Students!

This week we will celebrate our students for their accomplishments. Each grade level will participate in awards ceremonies in the gym at the times below. We welcome family and younger siblings to our awards, but school-aged siblings won't be able to attend as they should be in their classes.

All visitors will need a Raptor badge to attend the ceremonies. Unfortunately, BALLOONS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO BE BROUGHT TO SCHOOL. Please save those for home.

Students from each grade level will be given awards for all A's, A's & B's, Conduct Awards, Perfect Attendance and for different extra-curricular groups they may have participated in during this year. All students may not receive an award, depending on their involvement and their academic performance. Many grade levels are celebrating all of their students in their classrooms.

All Kinder students and Fifth Grade students will walk across the stage to receive a completion certificate.

School Supply Orders and Awards Ceremonies

Your student should come home with these two important papers tomorrow.

The School Supply Order list will help you place pre-packaged school supply orders either by sending up cash, or ordering online. The school supply list will be posted to the Bethke Website soon.

The Awards note lets you know when your child's awards are scheduled, and allows you to fill out a Raptor form if you are already in our Raptor system. Grandparents, family members and non-school aged siblings are welcome to the award ceremonies. School-aged siblings are not allowed as they should be in their classes at that time. Thank you!

Are you Moving? Are you attending Bethke on a Bonafide?

If you are attending Bethke on a Bonafide residence form, you should receive an email asking you to complete that paperwork again for next year. It is important for that to be provided in order for your student to be listed on a class list. You must have a current proof of residence. Please contact Mrs. Suarez if you have any questions.

Also, if you are moving, please let Mrs. Suarez know and she will be sure they receive your student's records.
