Lutheran Schools Week: Upon This Rock

Why celebrate Lutheran Schools?  We celebrate the opportunity to experience Gods gifts of love, grace and mercy here at our Lutheran school and church. Hereat Bethlehem we daily work to learn more about these gifts, be transformed by them, and share this news with others. We also lean upon the Rock of God while we excel in academics, critical thinking skills, the arts, and physical activates. Parents, thank you for your part in these amazing blessings. It is truly a blessing for me to be a part of.

We have had fun with dress-up days too, both students AND teachers!  You'll see photos from Rock Star day, Dress to Impress, Mismatch Day, Freedom Day,

and our cross with rainbow symbol which involves the entire school.  See the results below.                                                                                                  By 4th grade teacher, Sue Brandt







Bury the Alleluia?

One custom some observe in the Lenten season is "burying" the Alleluia.  Lent is a time of repentance.  A time for a sober reminder of all that Christ did for us through great suffering so that we might be saved.  So we stop singing alleluias until Easter.  The following photos show our enjoyment of our hand made alleluias the day before Lent.  They are "buried" in a box on our classroom until we can joyfully celebrate Christ's resurrection at Easter.  Those alleluia's will be sung loud and clear on Easter Sunday and all throughout the Easter season!    by Sue Brandt, 4th grade teacher

Hopefully when you highlight this link you'll be open an article that has good food for thought on how kids play and spend time today.  Do you think it may have an impact on development socially and educationally?

Play given to First Grade

All fourth graders had the opportunity to participate in a short play about the shepherds being the first to visit baby Jesus.  We performed the play for the first grade and ended with singing Go Tell It On the Mountain together.  Isn't it amazing that God chooses to tell lowly shepherds first?  It makes us realize that we too are welcome to worship at any time.  No one is kept from becoming part of God's family.  What a blessing!

May you experience the love of God in your family this new year of 2017!  Sue Brandt

Recorder Peer Tutoring




Today in computer class students learned from their peers!  Each leader did an awesome job of politely leading the small group of students in note reading, counting, finger placement, and performing.  Each learner did an awesome job of following directions and asking questions.  As a result many are ready to play their next Recorder Karate piece and earn a "belt!"
