Principal's Weekly Spotlight - 12/06/2020

Good evening! This is Dr. Moore-Lawrence, proud Principal of Bethesda Elementary with the Principal’s Weekly Spotlight for the week of December 7th.  As we prepare to start two weeks of school before Winter Break, I want to encourage you to keep pushing, keep going, and keep making it happen. Encourage yourself to end 2020 strong and help others do the same.  The quote of the week comes from Booker T Washington, “If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else..”


Week in Review Highlights (Please note that this list may not be exhaustive)


There is no Student Library Book Checkout this week or next week. Thank you to those students and families who have come in previous weeks. We will resume soon.


Wednesday, December 9th

*Don’t forget that students are to attend Morning Meeting every day, including Wellness Wednesday activities.  This week’s Wellness Wednesday topic is “Growth Mindset”

*Extra-Curricular Clubs (Each Club Has a Schedule of Dates; Please Note That All Clubs Don’t Meet Every Week)


Now it’s time for me to shout out some terrific Bulldogs.  To learn more about why these Bulldogs were recognized, please check your email or our website for full details. 

*Mrs. Shakinovsky recognized 5th grade student, Maimouna D, who received an XtraMath certificate for knowing all of her addition math facts in less than 3 seconds!
