News for the Parents

By March 20, 2019Uncategorized
  • On March 23rd, 2019, Chicago Public Schools will be holding a Title I workshop from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM at Malcolm X College for parents who have children enrolled in Title I service programs.  Our very own Sandra Gorney will be one of the presenters at the event to talk about the service offerings and the process that the program entails, along with offering a variety of resources to take home for the serviced students.  We strongly encourage parents of Title I students to attend, as it is a great opportunity to learn about and obtain additional resources to help support the student.
  • As reenrollment forms continue to come in, I wanted to post a reminder that the rate for March re-enrollment registration is currently at $125, which represents a $25 discount. 
  • Over the upcoming weeks/months, Bethesda classes will be scheduling visits to the Chicago Public Library to build and extend curriculum development offerings at Bethesda. It is a wonderful supplemental resource to have so close to our school.  
  • On behalf of Bethesda International Academy, we wanted to thank those who have taken out the time to donate funds for a designated Bethesda auction basket.  The CLEF organization auctions these baskets off to their donors to help raise money that directly benefits our student body.
  • At this point, teachers have been posting in their newsletters volunteer possibilities for our upcoming BIA Carnival.  If you would like to gain volunteer hours by helping run a game or taking a small group of kids around the gym for games, please reach out to the office or your designated teacher.
  • 1stthrough 4thbasketball shirts are due to arrive this Friday. Please ensure that if you had brought home a jersey that they are washed and returned to school by Friday.
  • As a reminder, Bethesda’s Fine Arts Festival has been moved to a May 2nddate to accommodate an acted performance of select scenes from Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
