Principal's Weekly Spotlight - 11/15/2020

Good evening! This is Dr. Moore-Lawrence, proud Principal of Bethesda Elementary with the Principal’s Weekly Spotlight for the week of November 15th.  This week’s quote comes from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.—“If you can’t fly, then run.  If you can’t run, then walk.  If you can’t walk, then crawl.  But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.”  I am so proud of the determination, perseverance, and stick-to-it-ness demonstrated by our staff, students, and families.  I am committed to seeing us move forward together, no matter how challenging it can and will sometimes be. Thank you for hanging in there with us together.


This week Bethesda celebrates International Education Week.  International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.  During this week, we will spotlight education from across the world and the staff members we have from countries around the world.

Winter always has a positive attitude and is helpful and encouraging to others. Keep up the great work, Winter!


A student and his family recognized their teacher! Keyshaun H. loves Mrs. Battle-White. She is very patient and makes sure that students and families have what they need. Even with all the technology, she never cracks and keeps it going. She works it out! She is awesome!
