Principal's Weekly Spotlight - 11/09/2020

Good evening! This is Dr. Moore-Lawrence, proud Principal of Bethesda Elementary with the Principal’s Weekly Spotlight for the week of November 8th. 


As we embark upon the coming week, I ask that we reflect upon this quote:  “Children are the world’s most valuable resource and its best hope for the future.”  When I look into the eyes of my son, I see dreams of peace, hope, freedom, love, and joy.  It is our job as adults to help cultivate the unique gifts within each of the children with whom we come in contact. There is so much potential within the students at Bethesda; let’s help our future leaders arrive at their destinations.
