Vol. 18, Issue 20
January 16, 2018
This year’s KML Forensic Meet will be held on Tuesday, March 13th. Interested students in grades 5-8 will be given information describing the different categories from which to choose. There is no limit to the number of students that can participate. The more the merrier! Practices will begin in February and will take place once a week for about a month. At the first practice, Mrs. Schopper will provide pieces for students to look over or students may find their own pieces and share them for approval. We are looking for volunteers (parents/grandparents) to come in and listen to pieces (practices are from 3:15-4:15 P.M.) We will also need to supply a few judges for the competition. Please email if interested! (email@example.com) We are looking forward to another great Forensic year here at Bethlehem, and hope many students will take part. Mrs. Schopper
SCIENCE FAIR – Grades 5-8
Just a reminder that students should be figuring out…

- if they want to order a project board through school.
All of this should be done by Monday, January 22nd.
TAX DEDUCTION – PRIVATE SCHOOL TUITION
Parents with a child in a parochial/private school are able to receive a tax deduction for paid school tuition for their 2017 taxes. Under the program, parents statewide will be able to deduct up to $4,000/student in grades K-8 and up to $10,000/high school student. Feel free to consult a tax expert if you have any questions.
If you will need a receipt for 2017 tuition you have paid, contact the school office. Receipts will take 5-10 days to process. Please don’t wait until April 14th to request your receipt. Thank you!
Grades 5-8: Just a reminder that students should be figuring out what they want to do for their project, if there is sufficient information, and if they want to order a project board through school. All of this should be done by Monday, January 22.

The colors can be found online at Showboard.com. Students are asked to pay for the boards after the order has arrived. Project boards: $3, Header boards: $1.
KINDERGARTEN 2018-‘19 INFO
Already, there is great interest in Bethlehem’s kindergarten class for next year! On Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 6:30 P.M. there will be an Informational Night at the Germantown Campus for all that are interested. Parents will discover what Bethlehem has to offer and the steps for enrollment since we do a have a limit on the number of kindergarteners we can serve with excellent, Christian education.

Mark your calendar
Plan to join us at Robert’s Custard Feb 12th 3-9 P.M. A portion of all sales during that time frame will be donated to Bethlehem Lutheran School.
It is time to place your 2nd Semester or January order for Cousins Lunch. Please make all checks payable to Bethlehem School. REMEMBER: If you choose to prepay, you may NOT change your order for the rest of the year. Orders are due back this Friday, January 19th and Cousins Subs will be served Friday, Jan. 26th.
As the temperatures have dropped 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 4: This is another regular week of homework. There is a Wisconsin quiz tomorrow and a spelling test on Friday. There is also a math test on Friday. Study pages will be sent home on Thursday. We have started the “Battle of the Books.” Please remember to ask your child about it. Thanks!
Grades 5 & 6: Grades 5-6 have the privilege to sing praises to their Lord this coming Sunday, Jan. 21st, at the
10:30 A.M. service in Menomonee Falls.They will meet in the 6th grade classroom at 10:15 A.M. to warm up their voices. If your child is unable to attend, please send a note or email excusing them. Hope to see everyone there to worship together as a class. Mrs. Schopper and Mr. Voigt
