Principal's Message

Dear Bethany families,

I am once again pleased to share summer extended learning opportunities for ALL TK-8th Grade LUSD students, as well as some curricular programs that will continue to be available throughout the summer. 

There are two new opportunities available for K-8 students to extend their learning over the summer.  Students who complete these summer learning activities will earn a certificate, bumper sticker, and a popsicle party at the start of the next school year to celebrate their efforts with summer learning!

  • All current TK-8 students will receive a “Getting Ready for _(the next grade level) ___” workbook that will reinforce the essential standards and skills needed for success in the next grade level.
  • All current K-8 students will have access to a fun new computer program for reading and math called MyPath.  More information, with directions for logging in, will be sent to parents and students within the coming weeks.  The MyPath program is personalized to every child’s needs based on their latest MAP test results and will adjust based on children’s work in the program.  Students can accelerate as quickly as they want, and will get help with things they are still learning or continue to extend their skills beyond their current grade level.  The goal for each student is 60 minutes per week, beginning on the launch date and continuing throughout the summer.  

Summer workbooks were sent home June 3rd-4th.  MyPath login instructions will be emailed to parents and students by mid-June. 

In addition to the resources detailed above, several existing programs will continue to be available throughout the summer. They include:

  • EPIC, Sora, and other resources on our Learning Commons (library) webpage that will allow students to access digital content for summer reading.
  • iRead
  • ST Math
  • Learning A-Z
  • Gooru

Great things happen at Bethany every day.  Thank you for sharing them with us, and enjoy your much deserved summer break!

Warm regards,

Debbie Wingo
