- The service for Grades 5-8 beings at 9:15 A.M.
- The service for Grades PreK-4 begins at 2:00 P.M.
- Both services are in Germantown
- The doors to the Germantown facility will open
exactly one hour before the beginning of the service.
- We ask that no one “save” chairs for relatives and friends who are coming later. Exceptions to this would be saving a place for a disabled person(s) or for someone parking a car.
- Students should be in their rooms 15 minutes before service starts! (Please do not arrive to rooms earlier than 30 minutes before the service)
- Because this is a worship service, no flash photography will be allowed. Videotaping will be allowed only from the back of the gym.
- Following the 2:00 P.M. service, students will remain in classrooms until the congregation has been dismissed.
- The students are using the bleachers for tiered seating. That means the seats nearest the performing students will be on the west side of the gym.
We are thrilled to again work with your children in the presentation of the Christmas message in this special service.
CARLINE PICK UP
For the upcoming Wednesday’s of Advent, the after school South Campus carline pick up will still occur. If you and your child are going to the 3:30 PM worship service, they will wait in the 8th grade classroom for you to pick them up. Thanks.
Students in grades 5-8 will be at the North Campus this Wednesday afternoon to prepare for the Christmas Service on Sunday. If you normally pick up your upper grade student, you are encouraged (if possible) to pick them up at Germantown. We have a bus to bring Meno. Falls car line and Johnson Bus students back to the south campus at the end of the day for their normal ride home. Thanks for your cooperation.
KINDERGARTEN 2019-‘20 INFO
Already, there is great interest in Bethlehem’s kindergarten class for next year! On Thursday, January 30, 2020 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 have a limit on the number of kindergarteners we can serve with excellent, Christian education. So please save the date. In January a letter with detailed information will be directly mailed to all preschool parents and member parents with children ready to enter Kindergarten next year! Thanks – Principal Weber
BETHLEHEM SCIENCE FAIR
Grades 5-8: Dear Parents, science fair information will be given out at school this week. Students are to have their topic chosen by January 13th. Science Fair projects will be due Wednesday, March 11th. Public viewing of the projects will take place on Sunday, March 15th. As part of our science curriculum, all students in grades 5-8 are required to do a project. Please contact Mr. Wendt if you have questions.
As the November temperatures and a fair amount of snow have dropped early this year, please be reminded that school closings and late starts are announced through our automated SwiftReach text, phone, email alert system. You will receive a text, phone call and/or email depending on the preference you have made in PowerSchool. We also try to get announcements on to our local TV stations, but at times they have problems listing our two-county, two-campus school accurately.
Bethlehem will close whenever Menomonee Falls or Germantown close for bad weather; or when the principal deems it wise to cancel school because of bad weather conditions. Concerning “late starts”: As a courtesy to parents, Bethlehem School will start late only when Menomonee Falls and Germantown Public Schools start late. At such times when the weather is a factor, students will not be marked “tardy” as parents work to ensure a safe arrival. Thank you… stay warm!
