Bethel Garden Update
á








Mr. Tidyman's classes made and filled all the beds with compost and dirt. The beds are all almost planted as well. Our cafeteria is doing its part in saving food scraps that haven't or can't be served. áMs. Pennell and Ms. Bauer have been in cahoots planting four beds (not pictured) and will be having a salad with the kids soon. á

The plastic poles are something of an experiment. áIt will be covered in clear plastic to keep the rain off of the tomatoes to prevent blight. áTime will tell.​

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 At this point, about 2/3 of our entire non-fiction collection is out of date and needs to be replaced.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!​
