And picture day for the Germantown Campus (3K and Gr. K – 4) is on Thursday, September 27.
Directories of all BLS families and students have been compiled for your convenience. The family directories are going home today with the oldest child in your family. We apologize in advance for any mistakes that may have crept into the many entries and pages.
Friday, October 5, 8:15-10:00 A.M.
“Moon is full, night is clear, our friends are here from far and near…” We are planning a howling good time for grandparents and friends, so please plan on celebrating “Arf” with us!
All children involved in our upcoming Grandparents’ Day performance-grades K-2 will need a solid colored t-shirt in any of the following colors: brown, black, or white. No logos or writing on them if possible! These little puppies need to look real! Jeans or denim skirts for the doggies’ legs works well. We can’t wait to prowl and howl with all our grandparents! See you on the 5th of October, woof, woof!
If anyone has a microwave that they aren’t using and would like to donate, our Germantown Campus could use one or two for the hot lunch kitchen.
Back to School! Ever wonder what questions to ask your child about school? Check out “How to Talk to your Kids About School” on our BLS website under Tips for Parenting. There will also be links for yummy pumpkin cheesecake and caramel apple dessert-yes! Also check out the Parent Devotion on perseverance for our children, and importantly our “Parent Message” for our lesson in Christlight this week. Your children have learned of the joyful responses several different people gave when they heard of the Savior’s birth, but not everyone had that same reaction! Like King Herod, many people today will reject Jesus as Lord. Check out ways to teach your child the value of our faith! For younger children there are good suggestions and for older students, this presents an excellent discussion on how many reject God’s Word.
“TECH IN ED” APPEAL – UPDATE
As you know,our school has significantly upgraded our Technology in Education hardware this year with increased bandwidth, iPads in the primary grades, Chromebook availability in Gr. 3 and 4, and Chromebook replacements in the upper grades. Our “Tech in Ed” Appeal to support the $20,400 cost of these upgrades runs through the end of September. To date, we have received $8,106 from parents in support of this effort. Thanks!
And there still is time to help with a gift . . . 🙂

Bethlehem will now be competing in the Crusader Warriors CC Invitational at Centennial Park in Grafton, WI on Wednesday, Sept. 26. If runners were signed up for the Cardinal Classic, we will assume that they want to run in Crusader Warriors Invitational. The course length is 3200m, but relatively flat.
New runners are welcome to sign up online by this Friday. Don’t forget the deadline is also this Friday to sign-up for the WLC XC Meet which is Saturday, Sept. 29th. Contact Mr. Wendt if you have questions.
