Winter Party Information

Dear parents, Our Winter Party is December 15th, which is also early release at 12:40! The students will eat lunch during this time in the classrooms. All other snacks and activities will be provided by Bethke Elementary PTA.

Please note:

If you plan to attend the winter 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. Guest are limited to parents and grandparents only per KISD Policy

Due to safety & security only Bethke Elementary students should attend the parties. High school, Junior high and preschool siblings

Bison Time Showcase!

We hope you were able to join us for our Bison Time Showcase on Friday! Our 3-5 graders did an amazing job of creating a service or a product for someone in our community. Groups worked on items for our staff, for flood victims, animal shelters and for our troops! We can't wait to see what they'll dream up for their Bison Time Groups in the Spring! Thank you to our PTA for sponsoring Bison Time and to all of the volunteers who came up to help our students!

The weather is getting colder!

We are expected to receive some cooler weather this week! It is a good time to check your student's jackets and coats to be sure their names are in them. This helps us return them if they are left at school. Our lost and found area is right outside the gym.

New Tardy Procedure Beginning in January!

Remember that students must be in the building by 8:20 to avoid being tardy.

Beginning on January 3rd, students who earn more than 5 tardies will be asked to arrive at school early for a morning detention. Parents will be notified in writing if their student is approaching this consequence.

Also, our doors automatically lock at 8:20, so you must walk your student in if they are arriving after that time.

We appreciate your help in getting our students to school on time.
