Welcome Bobcat Community!


    Greetings to our Bobcat Community!

    Welcome to our website and our Bobcat family!  Yes, a new school year is here!  Our theme for the 2023-2024 school year is "Kick Off to Student Success...No Flags on the Play"  Our focus for the school year is ensuring student success with all students reading on or above grade level and performing on grade level in mathematics .  In support of the District's strategic plan, we will ensure students learn through highly effective classroom instructional strategies with a balance between print and digital resources.  Teachers will implement effective questioning, visual representation and modeling and attend to precision of details and feedback.  Students will experience STEM learning activities integrated into our Science curriculum and through our STEM Lab.  Experiences of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math in a hands-on, engaging manner with creativity while coding, designing through robotics, experiments and thinking critically to problem-solve.

    As the school leader of Bethlehem Elementary School, it is my goal to inspire a culture of high-level teaching and learning.  We will work to get to know our students, their personalities, learning styles and interests.  As a part of our school community, we will celebrate our students, whether small or large accomplishments, and remind them that they are valued and are a part of our school community. Through collaboration between our staff and parents, our students will continue to receive the best possible educational experiences to prepare them for Success, now and in the future without "flags on the play".  

    I am again honored to serve the Bethlehem School Community.  At Bethlehem Elementary School, we truly love children!  We consider ourselves in partnership with our school community and invite you to join us for volunteer opportunities as we are "Better Together!".  Yes, it's always a great day to be a Bobcat!  

    Please feel free to contact your student's teacher for opportunities to volunteer and partner with us.  As we embrace this new school year, please take an opportunity to visit our website regularly for updates and information from the school and the district.

    Again, I welcome you to Bethlehem Elementary School and the 2023-2024 school year!  We are "Better Together!"
