  • Principal Welcome to 2020-2021 School Year

    Principal Message

    Welcome to the 20-21 school year and this very unusual start to the year. Our halls have been repainted, but are missing the most important part-you! We miss you and are looking forward to when we can return to in-person learning.  Until then, we are starting this year with remote learning. 

    Students will work on synchronous(live) learning and asynchronous (independent) tasks. Teachers have been preparing all summer to make sure that these are engaging and rigorous. It is important that you log in each day so that your teacher can both take attendance, and also answer any of your questions. 

    Students, I know that you are missing some of our traditions! We miss them too! I want you to know that we are committed to your success. We have high expectations for what you can accomplish this year, and plan to support you every step of the way!

    This year is coming to us with challenges we have not previously had to manage. We know that there will be times when you need our help to make creative plans and find solutions to challenges we have not yet faced. We are here to help you. 

    Communication and engagement of students and families are our top priority. I will send out a weekly newsletter and we will continue to post on our school Facebook page and website. Please make sure that you have an active email linked to your student. You can check by logging into Parentvue and completing the “on-line registration” which will walk you through the steps to verify all your information.

    Students will use Canvas and Edgenuity to manage their learning. Students should download the Canvas app onto their ipads. Students will also need to have their studentvue accounts, email, and google doc accounts active. Links to your classes will be posted in Canvas and emailed to you by teachers. 

    Families, we are here to help. Our office is open. If you chose to come into the building, please wear a mask. We are also available on email and phone. We encourage you to have your student help you reach out to us as well. They often understand the technology very well.

    We miss our Bulldogs so much. We look forward to when we can be back in our building together. Until that time, stay safe, and live our core values: Respect, Responsibility, Courage, and Hard Work. Remember, each day you have a choice to make it a great day. The choice is yours! Go Bulldogs!

Principal's Message

  • Bulldogs, 

     

    Welcome to the 2020 school year! 

    This will be a year of many firsts as we learn to start a year remotely. This will be the first time many of our students have had synchronous and asynchronous learning classes. That means they will be working independently on the computer, and also logging in and participating in on-line learning classes with their peers. This will be how we start the year. Teachers have been training and working on curriculum for the summer. We are hopeful that you will have a new and robust learning experience starting in September!

    Our school mission is to prepare students, academically and socially, for career, college, and beyond. Bethel Middle staff is committed to providing excellent and caring education and services to our students. This remains the same if we are in-person or virtual. This summer has called us to examine our courses from the lens of equity, access, and antiracism. Discussion have taken place among all teachers as to how we can ensure that our BIPOC see themselves in everything we teach and that their voices, and those of other historically marginalized groups, are lifted up. We heard from families that this was a request and priority.  Our staff is examining everything from the discipline policies, to the dress code, and most importantly the curriculum with an equity lens. Our missing is to prepare all students to face the challenges in our world. We do that best by helping their voice to come forward and to become engaged and independent learners ready to tackle difficult problems.

     

    Virtual learning is new for us, but quality teaching is not. We are committed to working with families to support you as we start this next academic year. Please look for our weekly parent newsletters, and our Facebook posts to stay involved. The more involved you are, the better our relationship will be.  

    Go Bulldogs!
