BETHKE BISON BULLETIN

January 13, 2017

Bison Time starting January 20th!

Our students and teachers are embarking on a new adventure on Jan 20th. We are beginning our "BISON TIME" when 3-5 graders will be a part of a "cluster" where the students will work in teams to create a product or service to better our world based on their passion. Kinder, first and second grade students will have opportunities to explore different passions to see what they might be interested in pursuing in the future. We're matching our teachers as facilitators with these groups in areas that they don't have strengths, so they can learn together. After 8 weeks, you'll be able to come see what your students have been working on. We are excited to share this learning with you!

Principal's Coffee X 3!

We'd like to invite you to come talk with Mrs. Lowery, Principal of Bethke, Mr. McCord, Principal at Stockdick Junior High and Mrs. Dickerson, Principal at Paetow High School at the Principal's Coffee on Thursday, January 26th at 9:00 am.


This will be an opportunity to ask questions and hear about the exciting openings of these new buildings. We hope to see you there!

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?

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. https://www.facebook.com/Bethke-Elementary-PTA-1611420235850681/?fref=ts
