Parent/Teacher Consultations


Spellers from Bethlehem certainly excelled in the recent “Spelling Bee” competition at Kettle Moraine Lutheran H.S.  It’s great to see students using their gifts!  After close classroom competitions, these students emerged as BLS’s top spellers and went on to represent Bethlehem at the Spelling Bee:

Gr. 5:  Kayla Knaack, Eliana Geiger

Gr. 6:  Joshua Haines, Julia Balza

Gr. 7:  Trinity Matthiessen, Elena Grahl

Gr. 8:  Joshua Michel, Reegan Siegel

All 8 students performed well among the many students from 14 schools.  Congrats to all!


Volunteer training is TONIGHT at 3:15 P.M. & 6:30 P.M. at our Germantown Campus.  If you are interested in helping in a classroom or going on a field trip during the school  year, you will need to attend this training session.  If you have already attended a training session, you do not need to attend this one.

If you haven’t returned your order form yet and would still like to, we have extended the deadline to tomorrow.  Some of the classroom races for the pizza party are very close but… that isn’t to say a class can’t pull from behind to win.  It happened last year!  Mrs. Weber and Mrs. Braun’s classes are neck and neck for the lead while Mr. Voigt & Mrs. Schopper’s class are battling it out, but Mr. Mittelstadt’s class is sneaking in quickly.  Which class will win the pizza party…your order could make the difference!  Thanks for supporting BLS!


We will have the opportunity to show our Christian love by our donations for St. Marcus Ministries Food Pantry.  Please bring your non-perishable food donations no later than 8 A.M. this Friday,  October 20th.  Thank You!


THIS Thursday from 6:00 – 7:00 P.M. in the Omega Room at the Germantown Campus, we welcome Emily Strey to learn why early music development is so important, and how parents can nurture their child’s musical development.

Babysitting will be provided at no charge for the first half hour, and children will join their parents for the second half hour.  Please sign up on the Events page or by emailing Brenda Wittrock at brenda_jh@yahoo.com.

Pizza Hut Lunch will be served this Friday.
