Please note:

  • If you plan to attend the spring party, please be prepared to go through the Raptor process and possibly wait in line. If you would like a preprinted badge, you may complete this form and promptly return it to school (this will only work if you have been Raptored in before). The preprinted badge will be sent home with your child. If you have never been Raptored in, feel free to stop by any time prior to the day of the party to do so.

  • Only Bethke Elementary students should attend the parties. High school, Junior high and preschool siblings (all those under the age of 5) should not be brought to the party. Students will be allowed to attend their own class party only!

Parent Conferences at Mid-Year

Many of our teachers are scheduling a second round of parent conferences. Please be sure to contact your teacher to schedule a conference if you have any questions or concerns about your student's progress.

Be mindful of school zones...we need your help!

With increased traffic, we've noticed that not all drivers are obeying the school zone hours and staying alert and off of their cell phones in our school zone. Please help us keep all students and staff safe by adhering to these laws. We appreciate your help!

Great News! 100% of our Teachers and Staff are members of the BETHKE PTA.....ARE YOU?

Join our PTA!

If you haven't had a chance yet to get involved in our PTA, now is the time! Bethke Students and teachers will have the best support system led by our PTA Volunteers. They have already been hard at work collecting donations for teachers, getting items to beautify our building and making plans for programs for our students. Follow them on Facebook at Bethke PTA.

Mrs. Lowery would love to have 100% of our families and staff as members of the PTA!

You can join PTA and buy Spirit wear by getting that information from their website. You can also pre-order spirit shirts & hair bows from the PTA. We'll all wear these shirts on Fridays! The link to their website is here:
