It was awesome to see so many dads at the WATCHDOG kick-off last week. We welcome volunteers at Bethke! From being a WatchDog, to working in the PTA room, to working with small groups of students, you are a huge factor in the success of our students. We hope you'll feel welcome and appreciated as a volunteer at Bethke!

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 email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
