Note from the Principal

This week’s weather has once again made things interesting! Just a reminder that we have rescheduled our Winter Open House to Tuesday, February 12 (weather permitting). Your help in sharing all the great things happening at Bethlehem Academy with prospective families is critical. Everything looks better the closer we get to 300 students at BA.
We have our Family Bingo Event this Sunday, February 10 in the BA gym from 12-3pm. Join us for this great family event and help raise money for BA scholarships.

Another reminder that conferences are on March 7 from 4:00 p.m until 7:30 p.m. Food will be served prior to conferences.
We have gained one hour and twenty-five minutes of precious daylight since the winter solstice on December 21, 2018. The sun rose today at 7:23 a.m. and will set at 5:32 a.m. Enjoy the daylight!
