Principal’s Post: Parent Survey

Last week, Bethany Lutheran administration sent out the link to parent’s surveys for both the K-8 and preschool families. These surveys are vitally important as they provide necessary information for school improvement. The primary goal of many parent surveys is to collect and understand parent opinions, perspectives, attitudes, and perceptions towards the school, their students, and education in general in order to improve the learning environment in general or specific ways. By participating in the survey, parents are providing a critical step because, as many studies have proven, parent involvement in schools has a significant impact on student performance. In fact, “ongoing research shows that family engagement in schools improves student achievement, reduces absenteeism, and restores parents’ confidence in their children’s education. Students with involved parents or other caregivers earn higher grades and test scores, have better social skills, and show improved behavior.

I want to encourage all of you to participate in this years’ survey today. By sharing your opinions, you, the parents, provide useful insights that may otherwise go unnoticed. For those of you who have already completed the survey, thank you! Please also remember that free dress and all pizza parties are at stake for full parental participation by class and schoolwide.

Annual BLS Christmas Program!

Remember to mark your calendar for the night of December 14 for Bethany’s Christmas Program. This is a school-wide (grade K-8) production so every student will be involved. The location of the performance is at Vacaville Performing Arts Theater across the street from Bethany school. 

This FREE event will begin at 6:30 P.M. and will feature our Kindergarten through second grade students performing musical selections and third through eighth grade, performing “An Unplugged Christmas” In addition, both of our bands will also be performing! You do not want to miss this great event!

All students (grades K-8) are expected to participate in the Christmas program. Students have been instructed that PERFORMANCE takes PRECEDENCE over a rehearsal, meeting, practice, and sorry to say...even birthdays. A performance does NOT take precedence over a wedding, a pre-booked vacation, or a once-in-a-lifetime event. All absences need to be documented AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Please inform your student’s teacher or Dr. Nomura. Emergencies will be treated as such.

Students must be at VPAT by 6pm. (K-2nd) Students have been instructed on what they should wear through a notice that went out to parents. (3-8th) Band students MUST wear their chapel uniform but they are allowed to wear Santa hats if they would like. For the Christmas musical, students are allowed to wear nice holiday attire (school appropriate) or chapel uniform UNLESS they have specific costumes in the musical.
