Good evening, Bethesda Parents! This is Principal Moore-Lawrence with the Principal's Weekly Spotlight for the Week of March 10th-March 15th. The quote of the week is “You can’t have a good day with a bad attitude, and you can’t have a bad day with a good attitude!” Please listen to the following announcements and reminders about what's happening at Bethesda.
#1 For the next two weeks, Bethesda’s students will participate in Hoops for Heart Campaign. Hoops for Heart teaches students how to take care of their hearts while they experience the joy of giving back to their community. Students will bring more information home Monday. To celebrate the ending of the campaign, our staff will play in the annual elementary school basketball tournament at Southern High School Friday, March 21st at 6:30. A flyer will go home this week with more info.
#2 If you have a child who will start kindergarten next school year, registration begins Monday, March 10th. Register early so your child can participate in all of the activities offered for rising kindergartners. Registration materials can be picked up in the Main Office.
#3 Bethesda’s Battle of the Books students will compete Tuesday against other Elementary Battle of the Books teams. Let’s cheer them on to victory.
#4 Bethesda’s PTA will host Bethesda Night Out Friday at Wheels from 6:30-9:00. Join us for skating fun!
#5 For the rest of March, Right to Read continues at Bethesda. Throughout the month, students who get caught reading when and where it is least expected will earn raffle tickets for a chance to win cool prizes. Also, I’ve issued a reading challenge to the students. If the number of minutes that students read this month is 300,000 or more, you won’t believe what I’ll do. A flyer will go home this week with more info.
Thank you for listening to this message. Have a great evening!
