Wow! How can it be that summer is almost over? Soon we will be dropping the kids off for another year at Bethel or perhaps this is your first trip through the halls on the elementary side of the school. Students will start off the year getting to know their teachers and classmates, so why don't the parents get to know each other as well? This year on the first day of school August 16th, the Bethel PTL will host a Blessing Breakfast. It is our desire for parents, especially those new to the grade school, get to know each other (or at least recognize the parents that are in their child's class.) And for those moms and dads that have been around awhile, this is a chance to introduce yourself to someone new. Of course, there will be coffee, juice, and breakfast items as well as a time and place to catch up with old friends. Because let's face it, we haven't really had the time all summer to see everyone. Please join us in the parish hall of Bethel Lutheran Church right after you drop off the kiddos. Can't wait to see everyone there!
