Principal's Weekly Spotlight 12/9/2018

Good evening! This is Dr. Moore-Lawrence, proud principal of Bethesda Elementary School, with the Principal’s Weekly Spotlight. Please listen to the following reminders about important things happening at Bethesda the week of December 10th.

 

Thank you to the families who allowed your children to party with the Principal during last Friday’s Winter Wonderland Dance. We had a ball!

 

Monday, December 10th and Tuesday, December 11th

We hope that you and your family were safe and warm during the snowstorm.  Since we missed Monday and Tuesday of this week, we have two makeup days—January 4, 2019 and January 22, 2019.  Please note that due to the days we’ve missed, our event calendar has changed. This includes a new date for our Quarter One Awards Celebration (now next Thursday, December 20th), a new date for NEHS Induction Ceremony (now next Thursday, December 20th), and a new date for Kindergarten Family Learning Breakfast (now Friday, January 18th).
