Dear Bethany Families,

Our Character Counts character trait for the month of February is Caring. Students can demonstrate caring at home, at school, and in the community by being kind and compassionate, expressing gratitude, forgiving others, and helping people in need. Thank you for working with us to reinforce this trait in our amazing Bobcats.

Thank you to everyone who attended our annual Family Science Night on Tuesday evening. Thirty projects qualified for the San Joaquin County Science fair which begins later this month. Please join me in wishing our students good luck as they compete at this higher level.

Basketball season started this month with Bethany’s teams playing with sportsmanship and building skills. Games are every Tuesday and Thursday beginning at 3:30. Come out and cheer on our Bobcats!

Our annual Pancake Breakfast and Auction is scheduled for Saturday, February 23rd from 8:30 – 11:00, and will again be prepared by the famous Tracy Breakfast Lion’s Club. Breakfast will be served from 8:30 – 10:30, with entertainment and the silent auction continuing until 11:00. If you or someone you know has an item or service to donate to the silent auction, please contact the school office. The order form for tickets is attached to this newsletter. All proceeds from this popular event support student activities here at Bethany School. We appreciate your support!

Congratulations to Zaynub Umar, Noah Roelle, Zoe Nazareno and Thomas Neri, who won the Perfect Attendance raffle for January. The animal theme continues in February with a stuffed elephant, gorilla, rhinoceros, and pug up for grabs, along with giant Hershey’s Kisses. Eligible students must be at school each day, on time, and remain here for the entire instructional day. Good luck, Bobcats!

Great things happen at Bethany every day. Thank you for sharing them with us.
