Dear Bethany Families,

Thank you for the fabulous Teacher Appreciation Week! You delivered an over-the-top week to celebrate our teachers! We were showered with notes of appreciation, treats, and meals every day!


A special thanks to our Bethany PTA for coordinating these efforts! Our Bethany students and families make Bethany a great place to be!


Gratefully,

The Bethany Staff

REMINDERS:

  • The building will be closed to general volunteers on testing dates.
  • Please do NOT schedule appointments during the school day on days your child is scheduled to participate in STAAR.
  • There will be no tutoring, office hours, or school sponsored after-school clubs (although the PTA Art club will still meet) on actual testing dates.
  • Due to testing security requirements from the state, parents/visitors are asked to not have lunch with students during their lunch times on testing days.


We are blessed to work with INCREDIBLE kids and we know they will do their personal best on the STAAR test!
