Principal's Minutes

April 7th, 2014


Good evening, Bethesda Parents! This is Principal Moore-Lawrence with the Principal's Weekly Spotlight for the Week of April 7th-April 11th.  The quote of the week is “Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.”  Please listen to the following announcements and reminders about what's happening at Bethesda.

#1   Report Cards went home Friday, April 4th.  If you did not receive your child’s report card, please contact your child’s teacher.

#2   Kindergarten and 5th grade students will take cap and gown pictures Tuesday, April 8th.

#3   This is our last week of school before Spring Break.  School is closed Monday, April 14th and ends April 18th.  Students return to school Monday, April 21st.

#4   Third Grading Period Awards Day has been rescheduled for Friday, April 25th.

#5   Custodian Appreciation Week is April 7th-April 11th.  Let’s show our custodians how much we appreciate what they do to keep our building safe and clean.

Thank you for listening to this message.  Have a great evening!
