THANKSGIVING AND THANKSLIVING
We have been blessed with a great 1/3 of the school year here at Bethlehem! For that, I am so thankful. As we approach Thanksgiving, allow me to express my sincere thanks to the parents, students, and faculty for all the tremendous efforts in support of Christian education here at our school. From my vantage point, the energy and great attitudes are obvious. Under God, it is that joint effort and partnership that has yielded such rich blessings for our school’s ministry. Yet there is much to do! We do know that “It All Began With God” (2018-19 School Theme).
May He bless our continued joint efforts in ministry. Have a blessed Thanksgiving! Principal Weber

Hot Lunch Help Needed
We are looking for someone to help serve lunch next week Wed 11/28 in Meno. Falls 11:30am – 1:00pm. Please contact the school office if you are able to help. Thank you.
As the temperatures are dropping and the snow will soon be flying, please be reminded to listen to AM radio 620, WTMJ or watch channel 4 for any school closing information. All four local TV stations are notified, but some have problems listing our two-county, two-campus school accurately. We also will use our PowerSchool Alert. You will receive a text, phone call and/or email depending on the preference you have made in PowerSchool for closings and late starts. Our school will close whenever Menomonee Falls or Germantown close for bad weather; or when the principal considers it wise to cancel school because of bad weather conditions. Concerning “late starts”: Bethlehem School will start late only when Menomonee Falls and Germantown Public Schools start late. At such times when weather is a factor, students will not be marked “tardy” as parents work to ensure a safe arrival. Thank you… stay warm!
Grade 8: For those students going to MFHS next year, your 8th grader should have brought home (today) an information sheet about the Parochial School Family Night on December 6.
