Vacaville Fiesta Days: Partnership Hours Opportunity

If your student walks the Parade Route with Bethany we will allow that time to be used as part of your Partnership Hours. Please make sure to have a partnership hour sheet with you to have signed by someone from Bethany. They can be found online or right outside the school office.

We have an amazing opportunity on Saturday, May 26th to show our school pride and represent Bethany School and Preschool in the Fiesta Day Parade! We are asking everyone to come in Bethany dress (your school shirts or school colors: Red, White, and Blue). We will be walking in the parade, children may decorate and ride their bikes/scooters/wagons as well. We will be meeting at the corner of Mason St and Williams St. at 9:15am. The parade route ends at Bethany Preschool/Church so we would recommend parking at the Church and walking to meet us. Please let us know if you plan on attending so we can get a rough guess at the number of people joining us. We hope it is everyone!!

From The Principal

Security is Job 1
Dear Bethany Lutheran Community,
We are very proud to announce that additional security has been added to the school. Thanks in part to PTO and Scott Ledford, classrooms and offices around campus have been equipped with the new Lock Block safety feature to provide increased security in the event of danger on campus. This rubber device titled "Lock Block" prevents locked doors from completely closing, allowing the handle to stay locked and students to quickly lock doors without the need of keys in the case of danger on campus. Doors will remain locked at all times, and when students need to quickly go to the restroom or their locker, etc. they can use the door block to keep the door slightly ajar, without locking, until they return.

WASC / NLSA Accreditation Visit Completed
We did it! We made it through the accreditation visit this week, which began on Sunday afternoon. Thank you, first and foremost, to our staff, Church Council, and all the parents who were asked to be on focus groups throughout the process. Additionally, thank you to our students who did an amazing job welcoming our visitors and loving them as if they were already a part of our community.
The visiting team gave their evaluation feedback, which included commendations of the administration’s ability to equip the staff and students with the necessary resources needed to succeed academically. The visiting team also commended the school for its’ friendly, loving, and nurturing school climate. Some areas of attention or focus were also discussed during the closeout session. One area of critical need listed the assessment of student learning outcomes as a recommendation for improvement and a formalization of action plans to that end. Although the overall visit produced some very insightful information, I believe that the overall vision, mission, and direction of the school was clearly substantiated. This was a very tough process which also created some trepidation among faculty and staff, but I truly feel God’s ultimate plan for this campus is shining through.

Partnership Hours

It doesn’t seem possible but we only have five weeks of school left!
As we have said throughout the year, “Please do not wait until the end of the year to try to complete your hours. There are fewer and fewer opportunities as the school year comes to a close. However, there are a few opportunities coming up that will allow you to complete some of your hours, (i.e., helping teachers, lunch help, talent show, field trips, End-of-Year BBQ, etc.). Remember: in order to receive credit for your completed hours, YOU MUST record the hours on the Partnership Hours form, including the date, activity and/or job description and the number of hours. A BLS staff member or event coordinator must then initial that hours were completed. The completed forms are then turned in to the school office so they can be recorded by Student Billing. Partnership hour forms are available in the rack outside of the school office or on the school’s website at All Partnership Hours for the 2017-2018 school year must be submitted to the school office by June 15, 2018. If you have completed your required number of hours for the 2017 2018 school year, there is no need to continue recording them…you are finished! Thank you for partnering with us and your continued support of the mission of BLS!

We worshipped; we sang; we played musical instruments; we ate; we played field games; we had a scavenger hunt; we hiked and there were even Pena Adobe Museum tours! We did it all! THANK YOU to Bethany Lutheran Church for orchestrating this wonderful event along with our school staffs. THANK YOU to all of the volunteers: those who shared food items, those who helped set up and clean up, the Praise Team and Hannah, our soloist! THANK YOU to the children who sang and played during the service! THANK YOU—to our Bethany Families who came out in droves to help us celebrate each other and Jesus Christ! Truly a great time was had by all and everyone is already talking about when can we do it
