Winter Weather Wear

It certainly is beginning to feel a lot like winter lately with the onset of  colder weather and appearance of snow flakes in the air.  With the change of seasons I wanted to remind each of you about our Recess protocols.  Our students will be having recess outside each day unless the temperature or wind chill is at 0 degrees or lower.  Students must have a coat, hat, gloves/mittens, and covered legs to participate in outdoor recess and must have snow pants and boots to play in any snowy areas.  Students who do not have the appropriate outerwear will be monitored inside by a staff member.

College and Career Day – Save the Date

Bethany Academy’s annual College and Career Day will be on
Friday, February 9, 2018 for our 7th-12th grade students.

We will offer exploratory career sessions for our 7th-12th graders in the classrooms throughout the day from 8:00-3:00 pm. We would love to have parents, grandparents and other Bethany connections to share at one or more sessions. Would you consider asking your employer for this day off or if you own your own business putting this date on your calendar to share your occupation field or ministry? Each session will be 55 minutes in length. Each session is limited to 25 students, so some topics may be presented more than once to allow additional students to attend a seminar.
