Return to Headlines


Good evening!  This is Dr. Moore-Lawrence, proud principal of Bethesda Elementary with the Principal Spotlight for the Week of December 12th-December 18th.  This week’s quote comes Terri Marshall, “The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings and seek out ways to make life better for those around us.”

Monday and Tuesday, students will get to cash in Class Dojo points for PBIS store items.  Store items include games, toys, health and beauty items, books, gifts for others, and more.
