Good evening!  This is Dr. Moore-Lawrence, proud principal of Bethesda Elementary with the Principal Spotlight for May 16th-May 20th. Can you believe that we have 17.5 days left of school? This week’s quote is “Hang in there and don’t forget you are awesome.”  Thank you for your support and all that you do.  Please listen to the updates about what’s happening at Bethesda.



Have you completed your child’s registration and bus transportation form for next year? If not, do so today.  You can find instructions on the DPS website at, or you can come to the school on Wednesday, May 18th or Thursday, May 19th between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. to get help for filling out the form.  Again, this is very important to ensure that your child has bus transportation for next year, in addition to other important information.
