Message from Ms. Hernandez

Wow, we only have ten days left for the first semester of this school year to be over! You all have worked very hard to ensure our students get first, good instruction every single day. I know our students are going to rock those ACPs. We will prove once again, Bethune is the best school in town! You all are the ones on the front-line everyday making it happen. Believe me when I say, I take pride in my teachers and acknowledge your hard work and dedication to our students and school. Continue to lead courageously and fearlessly. I know we will achieve all our school goals together.
