Bethlehem Lutheran School News
From upcoming activities to amazing accomplishments and events, we’ll post all of the important BLS happenings right here on our News page. We may even give a helpful parenting tip or two. Check back regularly so you don’t miss a thing. We thank you for your support!
The end of the second trimester is on Friday, March 3. We will send home report cards with students on Friday, March 10. If you do not receive one, please call the office at 582.5624.
It is time again for the Mid-Columbia spelling bee for middle school students. Bethlehem Lutheran School is hosting the bee on Thursday, March 9. This spelling bee is for students in grades 6, 7, and 8. Over 30 area schools have been invited to participate. We encourage our students to think about competing! We can have two spellers from each grade level. We are also in need of volunteers for this event. We need callers, judges, and timers. If you are willing to help out or want more information, please call Michele in the office at 582.5624.
On March 14-16 we will host a five-member visit team for our accreditation renewal process. This team is made up of two Lutheran school principals, one Lutheran school teacher, and two assistant principals who serve in the Kennewick School District. They will be checking our self-study document and verifying and approving everything we are doing to operate as a school of excellence, as well as approving and possibly adding ideas to incorporate into our strategic plan as we continue to raise the bar.
We are inviting all grandparents and special friends to spend the morning with us on Friday, March 3 starting at 8:30 a.m. We have many fun activities planned! Please see the latest edition of our newsletter for more information about this exciting day!
As we approach re-enrollment time we want to remind you that if you have siblings or students that are not currently enrolled and you have an interest in enrolling for next year to please contact Britta Thompson, our admissions director, as soon as possible. Some of our classes are starting to fill already.
