This week is U.S. Constitution Week, a time to celebrate the great document that determines our way of government and protects our freedoms. Did you know that India also has a Constitution? Both India and the United States are democratic republics.

Below the preamble or introduction from each Constitution is shown. What are the similarities and differences?

Help Lake Elementary Students in Louisiana!

We are accepting pencils, colored pencils, markers, crayons, folders (any type), dry erase markers, erasers, rulers, glue sticks and scissors. The school has lost ALL of their books as well, so we will be accepting monetary donations to purchase gift cards that the school can use to buy new books. Even a few dollars will help. Please send your donation into school in a bag or envelope marked “HELP LAKE SCHOOL” or drop off in the collection box in BSES’ lobby. We will be collecting donations until WEDNESDAY 9/21/16.

Thank you to all who have donated school supplies or made monetary donations thus far!

Bethel Springs Home and School Association Anouncements

Please click the link below for important announcements from our Home and School Association:

Dismissal Information

1) Permanent Pick-Up: If you are planning to pick up your child each day from school, please write a note to indicate that he/she will be on "permanent pick-up." On a given day, if you want your child to take the bus home, simply send a note to that effect or call the school office at 610-579-3000 to indicate the change. Every child will have an assigned seat on the bus, so your child can take the bus, when needed, even if you have him/her on the "permanent pick-up" list.

2) YMCA: We have been given a list from the YMCA of students who will be attending before and/or after care at their program housed in our building. If there is a change in plan on a given day and you wish your child to take the bus home after school or you wish to pick up your child after school, please notify the school and the YMCA of the change.

3) General Dismissal Changes: If there is any change in your child's typical dismissal plan, please send in a note to his/her teacher or call the school office at 610-579-3000. Please follow this same procedure for early dismissal pick-ups.
