BETHKE BISON BULLETIN

December 2, 2018

Bison Time Showcase

Our students had a great time showing what they have been working on during Bison Time this semester. Group projects ranged from making bird houses, animal toys for animal shelters, board games for the YMCA, notecards for our staff, cooking for various groups and so much more! We are excited to see our students collaborate to create a good or service for our community. It could not be done without the support of our PTA and we thank them for sponsoring Bison Time each week.


Stay tuned to next semester when we will begin another round of Bison Time!

Thank you for Supporting Junior Achievement!

We just wanted to say THANK YOU to all of the Junior Achievement volunteers we have had so far this first semester for Kinder, 1st, and 4th grades.

We appreciate your support and willingness to come to Bethke and teach our kids. We look forward to 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grades JA in Day coming in January and February!

Lunch Visitors Please Read!

Seating at lunch is extremely limited in our cafeteria for visitors due to continued increases in student enrollment.

Limit visits to birthdays or a maximum visit of once per week


Visitors limited to a maximum of 3 per student and must be persons who meet KISD visitor guidelines for elementary students.

Lunch visitors are restricted to parents/step-parents/guardians, non-school aged siblings, grandparents (with written permission from the parent) and campus mentors per GKC (REGULATION). Visitors do not include aunts, uncles, or neighbors.


Avoid Mondays, Fridays, and days before holidays, whenever possible.
Sit side by side at the visitor tables to provide maximum seating availability
Visitors must sit with their child only at a table designated for visitors
Due to Safety Rules, and guidelines from the Fire Marshall we cannot allow visitors sitting on the floor
Since our first obligation is to provide optimal seating for students, we will continue to monitor the number of visitors at lunch. If we continue to experience overcrowding with lunch visitors, we will consider implementing additional guidelines to ensure adequate seating during student lunches. We are hopeful that if all parents follow the requests listed above, our school will continue to have daily seating available for all who wish to have lunch with their child/ren. Thank you for your patience as our Bethke family continues to grow.
