BETHKE BISON BULLETIN
August 19, 2018
Great First Week!
We had a great first week at Bethke! Students are already beginning to learn and grow together! We appreciate your patience with the bus and car rider line. It does get better every day! Getting over 1,300 kiddos out safely and efficiently is no easy task, but if we work together, we can get it done!
Please access the parent handbook online by visiting http://www.katyisd.org/campus/cbe/Pages/default.aspx. You'll find lots of resources on our website, including the school calendar which has all of our major events already posted. There are also links to helpful parent resources.
Don't forget to have students wear their Monday Bethke Grade Level Shirts tomorrow if they have one!
A Couple of Quick Parent Tips!
This week students will walk to class by themselves. We will have monitors in the hallways to help guide them to their classes.
Lunches---If you need to deliver lunch, you'll have to RAPTOR in and deliver it to the table by the gym. Your student won't be called down to get their lunch. Also...no Door Dash! :)
Early Check Out--Students needing to leave early must be checked out by 3:10. There are no check-outs after this time as we begin dismissal and it makes it very hectic, and unsafe.
Students who are checked out early receive a partial day absence, so be sure to bring a note if you are making a doctor's appointment.
Changes of transportation should only happen occasionally. When students constantly have a different way home, they get confused. Changes must be made in WRITING, and sent to the school in the morning. We cannot make changes to transportation over the phone or by email. You can fax a note, but it must have a copy of your ID as well. It is recommended that if you fax it, you call to be sure it was received.
Other policies and procedures can be found in the parent handbook which is located on our website, or copies are available in the front office.
**Special Project** What are your Goals for 2018-2019?
A new year means new beginnings and a time for new goals.
We'd like to decorate our hallway with photos of our families and include the goals you have for your student.
We are asking each family to bring a 4x6 picture of your family to Meet the Teacher. You'll give this to one of your child's teachers and also write a goal for your student on a piece of paper we provide. We'll hang our Bethke Family Photos and the goals in our main hallway for everyone to enjoy.
