Thanks to everyone who shared in the Bethel Basketball Tournament last week! The turn-out and community support was wonderful. áThe concessions were delicious. áThank you to the hard work put in by the PTSO, other Bethel families, and to many Bethel teachers and staff who made this a success. áCoach Greene, among many others, had some moves! áWe love these events that include so many generations of Bethel students, past students, and their extended families​.

Used Book Drive!

The Library at Bethel is hoping to collect as many used books as possible for a used book sale to raise money to upgrade and rebuild our library collection. At this point, about 2/3 of our entire non-fiction collection is out of date and needs to be replaced. Many of our most popular fiction titles and series are worn and literally falling apart at the seams. They need to be replaced, too. That is a substantial investment in terms of dollars that need to be raised and spent on high quality books for our children! They deserve the best and we are determined to provide it.á

We are hoping that families will go through their own bookshelves to see if there are any books they can donate to the used book drive. We're also hoping folks will spread the word to family and friends to bring their used books in to the school, to contribute to the drive. We've got work to do to improve our wonderful little library, but many hands make light work... and we know that the community that Bethel Elementary serves is very committed to the school and to our children. We're counting on your help to make our first ever used book drive a total success!​

Our school, thanks to our families, just mailed in $221.00 worth of Box Tops! áEach Box Top you send in is worth 10 cents!

We also have hundreds of Labels for Education thanks to you. áWe will soon be able to trade these in for items like basketballs and volleyballs for our gym & playground.

Just today, a couple of families sent in literally 1000 box tops! áThat will turn into $100. towards our school budget. áThank you to those families, and to all of you for your efforts. á

Please continue to send in Box Tops and Labels for Education until school is out. áAlso, please collect them over the summer and start sending them in next school year!

We hope everyone is staying warm!á

Students, continue to read and seek real-world examples and applications for the content and skills you have been learning at school. If your teachers have given you snow day packets, those are great to keep your skills and memory sharp. No doubt too, that Mr. Robinette, Mr. Tidyman, Mr. Safferstone, and Ms. Reiss wold love it, if while you are out, that you continue to practice the skills you are learning in their classes.
