Message from Principal Wagner

Good evening BMES Families,


Thank you to all our families as we are at 99.6% completion on our federal impact aid forms! We appreciate your commitment to your child's education and ensuring they have what they need in public education. If you haven't completed your form, please do so to support your child.


Also, this week is our school spirit week in celebration of Bullying Prevention Week. We have several days of fun and excitement.


  • Monday- Wear Read, White, and Blue
  • Tuesday- Pajama day
  • Wednesday- Class Unity Day (wear common color)
  • Thursday- Throwback Thursday
  • Friday- Book Character Day- costumes are allowed but no masks and violent themes.


Langley Chapel shared with administration that on Monday afternoon at 2pm, there will be a funeral occurring. They will have security forces out preventing parents from parking in the chapel lot. Please plan accordingly as this will impact our dismissal time.


Lastly, the Bethel Manor PTA is hosting a monster mash celebration this Friday from 6-8pm. Please join us for a spooktacular time!



Have a great evening,

Mrs. Wagner
