BETHLEHEM — The Bethlehem School PTO formed in September of 2012, and has had an extremely productive and successful first year.

In their firm support of the school, it's staff and the students, they have contributed to many special events held at the school, as well as organized fundraising programs to raise money to benefit the school. They are also taking part in planning events and programs they are hopeful to host and contribute to in the future. Their efforts so far have won them praise from teachers and parents, and the community as a whole.

These are some of the special events the PTO has helped contribute to:

Veteran's Day Luncheon: The Special Events Committee hosted local veteran's at a luncheon served by the culinary class and provided patriotic musical entertainment for the guests.

Christmas Dance/Valentine's Day Dance: Volunteers decorated the student activity center with lovely and colorful decorations for all the students to enjoy at the two dances.

Homecoming and Alumni Dinner: The Special Events Committee decorated the student activity center with “Blast from the Past” decorations, as well as the Choral Suite, in preparation for the Homecoming celebration and Alumni dinner on January 25th, and hosted a lovely buffet of finger foods for all attending alumni.

Teachers Appreciation Luncheon: This was hosted by the PTO on March 22nd, just before the teachers and staff left for spring break. The theme was “Chicken Soup for the Teacher's Soul,” and included homemade soups, sandwiches and salads made by the parents, as well as a motivational speaker to inspire them to continue their good works as educators of our children. Door prizes and small gifts were donated and given out to the teachers and staff as well. It turned out to be a wonderful day for everyone involved and everyone who attended.
