In Celebration and Recognition of International Women's Day

I am proud to highlight the talented writing of one of Bethany's 5th grade students, Lily Weed-Lira. I first read this poem on International Women's Day and felt so inspired and wanted to share it with all of you. I truly believe "Empowered women empower women." Thank you Lily for sharing your voice and your talent with us.

Message From Ms. Regan

Hiya, Bethany families!

They say the only constant in life is change. Certainly, that has held true for this year's "tech" special!

Rather than the "technology" class that we've had in the past, Bethany has moved on, up, and towards STEAM: a combo of courses comprised of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. During the first half of this year, our focus was on the "A" and the "S" of STEAM, giving our Bobcats a chance to paint, create, make mistakes, think creatively, and learn more about the intersection of art and science.


But change, as ever, remains the only constant. So starting on February 1st, we collectively shifted-- both our attention, and our room!-- to technology and engineering. For the latter half of the year, students will be learning about digital citizenship, internet safety, and the engineer design process, in between various opportunities to tinker, try, and struggle productively with coding tools and building challenges.


Thank you for your patience and support through all of these changes, as well as the myriad of other changes that have shaped the 2021-2022 school year. It's been tough at times, but as we all know: Bobcats can do hard things!


Best,


Melissa Regan

Preschool at Bonny Slope

Bonny Slope is an inquiry-based learning school that welcomes the opportunity to have a PreK in our school! We believe that children learn best through playful learning. It is this type of learning that supports our students with problem-solving and life-related skills, known as Habits of Mind. It is the focus on these skills such as persisting, listening, and understanding with empathy, thinking and communicating with clarity, taking responsible risks, creating, imagining, and innovating that is needed to be successful in kindergarten and ultimately throughout their educational experience.


Priority is given to students who qualify for free preschool based on a family's income level at or below the Federal Poverty Guidelines as well as other qualifying questions on our Interest Form.


Any spots that are not filled by September 9th will be open to families who pay tuition based on our waitlist of submitted Interest Forms. Please fill out an Interest Form to start the process for PreK for 2022-2023.
