Principal's Weekly Spotlight - 02/02/2020

Good evening! This is Dr. Moore-Lawrence, proud principal of Bethesda Elementary School where ”Every Day!  Every One!  Every Way!  We will learn, serve, and achieve.” Please listen to the Principal’s Weekly Spotlight for the week of February 3rd.


This week is National Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action.  The goal is to have conversations that make our students more civically engaged by building their empathy, collaboration, and action. Ask your child about activities featured this week and the entire month of February in honor of Black History Month.  On February 28th at 8:30 and 10:00, Bethesda will present “Celebrating Freedom, Equality, Diversity, and Pride”.  This event will share the testaments, achievements, accomplishments, and more of black people. Students, staff, and community members will celebrate via song, drama, and dance. Please join us.


This year, PTA is excited to offer a Valentine Store. This week, be on the lookout for a flyer and order sheet where you can order a valentine gift to be sent to your Bethesda Sweetheart—student, friend, or teacher.  All proceeds benefit the PTA. Order quick! Quantities are limited!


Starting this week, 25 students from each grade level will get to participate in Y.O.G.A. for YOUTH "Intro to Yoga/Mindfulness".  Yoga is said to improve fitness and physical health, reduce stress, improve optimism, improve focus and school performance, enhance self-regulation, and encourage creativity. We are excited that this four class program is coming to Bethesda and know our students will enjoy it.
