Note from the Principal
Bethlehem Academy Community,
Dr. Briscoe is currently taking a little time for personal refreshment so it appears that this news will come from me. I am Dennis Germann and am helping Bethlehem Academy with administrative duties for now being that Mr. Wollersheim is on leave. Please pray for him that Our Lord will lift him up as he continues on his journey. I am working part-time and will only be available until December. My wife & I have a combined 22 years of Catholic education. Our careers include Navy enlistment, teaching & principalships in South Dakota and Faribault.
I appreciate the opportunity to work with staff and students again. May we all continue to heed Christ’s command to spread the Gospel and daily remember His two greatest commandments: You shall love your God with your whole heart, your whole mind, and whole soul; and you should love your neighbor as yourself.
Mr. Dennis Germann

STUDENT SERVICE CLUB
Backpack Blessings Program - Nov. 6th, 7:30 am
Coordinator Gretchen Moe, from Reliance Bank, will speak to students about the creation of food packs for student backpacks. These food packs contain nutritious meals for children in need on the weekends or during school breaks. This helps “bridge the gap” so that children return to school not hungry but instead ready to learn.
Pregnancy Options – Nov. 20th, 7:30 am
Gina Little from Pregnancy Options will be a guest speaker at the Student Service Club meeting.
In order to minimize the number of interruptions to the classroom, we kindly ask that you contact us before school if your student will be missing any part of the day.
You can email us at email@example.com or leave a message at 507-334-3948 ext. 302.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!
