Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) Membership Drive
We are so blessed to have such a supportive PTO at Bethel Hill Charter School. They do many wonderful things to support our school. From purchasing instructional materials and Chromebooks to school improvements, our PTO works diligently to meet the needs of our students.
Each year we have a PTO membership drive to promote joining our PTO. Membership dues are $5 per joining member. Our drive runs until Thursday, October 24, which is also the day of the PTO Fall Carnival. If you join the PTO prior to the carnival, you will receive free admission to the Fall Carnival! The grade level that has the highest percentage of memberships will be rewarded with an ice cream party from the PTO!
Thank you for your continued support of the BHCS PTO!
REMINDER: Fundraiser Orders and Money Due
BHCS has always taken pride in our students demonstrating good character. All staff members work to model this for the students and acknowledge them whenever they see students exhibiting good character at school.
Once again, BHCS will have “Wildcat Wednesday”. This year students will be nominated based on the character trait of the month at BHCS. Students will be nominated by a staff member here at BHCS. The staff member will complete a nomination form and place it in a special box in our workroom. On Wednesday of each week, two staff members will meet in the morning to randomly draw out a form from those submitted. The form selected will be the student who will be recognized for “Wildcat Wednesday.” We will have a Wildcat selected for grades K-2 and one for grades 3-5. The students recognized will have their names displayed on paw prints by their classroom door. They will also have their name displayed in the cafeteria and main office for all to see! The winners will also receive a certificate of recognition and ice cream coupon to use in the cafeteria. All students who are nominated will have their nomination form sent home so that their success can be celebrated with their families!
Thank you for encouraging your child each and every day!
Attention all Fifth Grader Wildcats!
Get ready for Student Council! As a fifth grade Wildcat, your child will have the opportunity to run for an office in the student council. The elections and process will not begin until after the end of the first six weeks.
Being a member of Student Council is a big responsibility and takes dedication, determination, and dependability. The students at Bethel Hill are looking at them to be role models. With these expectations in place, your Wildcat must be progressing satisfactory in all academic subject areas. They must have a satisfactory behavior report with no discipline referrals for the first six weeks. They must display appropriate school behavior.
The roles of Student Council include President, Vice President, Secretary, 2 Spirit Officers, and Public Relations.
An informational meeting will take place after the first six weeks during school hours. Additional information will be sent home during this time!!
Get Ready Wildcats!!!
