INCLEMENT WEATHER MAKE-UP DAY
June 3rd will be the last day of school and an early release day.
As of Monday, May 6, we began two new and exciting changes to our 6th grade staff. Mrs. Joyce began her new role as 6th grade ELA teacher and middle school yearbook adviser. At the same time, we welcomed Ms. Fabian as our interim teacher in 6th grade Social Studies. These changes were necessary after the departure of Ms. Widerman, 6th grade ELA teacher and middle school yearbook adviser, this past Friday, May 3.
THANK YOU TO PARENTS AND STUDENTS
A big thank you to all parents and students who participated, cooked, cleaned up or helped set up for our annual Colonial Day Celebration. It was huge success. Everyone enjoyed themselves and learned about Colonial life.
Please see the Proctor Volunteer Form enclosed in this week’s Wolf Pouch. Please return this form if you can volunteer. The form may also be found on the school website and the Bethany Community School PTSO Facebook page. Please share this with anyone who may be able to help. Thank you for your support.
STUDENT PICK UP AND TRANSPORTATION CALLS
Due to the length of the car line and being able to exit the school, we are asking that no student be checked out after 2:00 pm. Also, if you need to change your child’s transportation, please call the office before 2:00 pm. Thank you.
