Note from the Principal
Bethlehem Academy Community,
A good friend sent this to me about one month after we sent Cindy to Heaven. It helped me move forward as one thing that I know is that we all need hope in our lives. I share this with you and encourage you to share with people in your life. God’s blessings to you. Nice Bike!
