BETHKE BISON BULLETIN

Here We Grow!

Hello Bethke Families!


We are so proud of our students and how well they have adjusted to being back in school. It was great to be back in a routine and we were excited to see all of the fun learning happening at Bethke!


Our enrollment numbers are high! We were projected to have about 825 students this year, and we already have over 930. Because of this, our classes are larger, and it is likely we will be adding classrooms at almost every grade level in the coming weeks. Mrs. Lowery anticipates adding a class at Kinder, First, Second, Third, and Fourth Grades. Letters with more specific information and emails for each of those grade levels will be coming home on Tuesday.

Gifted and Talented Information

5th Grade GT screening for placement in Junior High PreAP/GT classes: Paperwork about GT screening for Junior High will be sent home with all 5th graders the week of September 11th. Secondary Parent Checklists will be available upon request from the front office or online at the GT/Advanced Academics Department website. Secondary Checklists are due by 4:00 pm on Thursday, September 28. This is a change from the published due date due to school missed during Harvey. No checklists will be accepted after September 28. Screening takes place throughout the fall semester, and final placement decisions are mailed home the end of January. If you have questions, please contact Jodi Foreman via email at jolindagforeman@kaytisd.org.

Kindergarten GT screening: Information regarding screening of kindergarten students for the gifted and talented program will be sent home with kinder students beginning the week of September 11-15. Kindergarten parents who would like to refer their children for screening must return the Kindergarten Parent Checklist to their campus by October 3, 2017. If you have questions, please contact Jodi Foreman via email at jolindagforeman@kaytisd.org.
