Bethel Middle School Parents/Guardians,
Welcome to our 3rd trimester!
This is a time of great academic focus for students at Bethel Middle School. Students will participate in end of year testing starting April 17th. These tests are important because they help us to evaluate our over all school program. Data on individual students will help us to design interventions and acceleration classes for next school year. Please make sure your student is well rested, fed and has earbuds and a charged ipad on the day of the test.
Review of school behavior expectations. Students reviewed behavior expectations when we returned from Spring Break. Students reviewed their student handbooks. If you haven't reviewed the policies in our student handbook, please take a minute to do so. Our students have this downloaded as an i-book on their ipds. There is also a link on our website. Pages you could review together are: tech policy, ipad policy, public displays of affection, and attendance. All of these are important to maintaining a safe and civil school.
Spring fun is being planned! We have many fun activities planned for the end of the year. As the weather warms up, we'll bring lunch tables outside so kids have access to our beautiful views and sunshine. Some spirit days will liven up the spring as well. ASB elections take place the middle of May, as do WEB leader applications. Our end of year activities and honor assemblies will take place in June.
We are proud of the many exceptional Bulldogs that walk our halls and look forward to a great end of the year.
College Bound Scholarship Forms due to counseling center this month. 7th and 8th grade students who received a College Bound Scholarship form should turn it in to their counselor. 96% of our eligible 8th graders have turned in their forms. 70% of our eligible 8th graders have turned in their forms.
