Message From The Principal

Hello Bethany K-8 Families:


  • Shorts are no longer allowed at chapel. This was a Wednesday-by-Wednesday basis that was to be determined by Dr. Smith. The weather is now changing so going forward: Boys must wear navy long pants to chapel.
  • Chapel shoes: white, black, navy, tan or gray are allowed. NO RED or crazy colors for chapel.
  • You MUST "check in" your child in the school office if you arrive after 8:10am. Generally, roll has already been taken and we need documentation of when your child arrives on campus.

In His Service,
Dr. Smith

God Is Good, All The Time!

As you may have heard, our preschool located on South Orchard Avenue in Vacaville, CA. experienced a major fire August 14th. As a school community and church, it has been a very difficult time but a time in which we have seen God’s blessing through hardship. So many people in our community and around the world have reached out to us and asked how they can help and how they can pray and support us moving forward. The BLS staff and I invite you to prayerfully consider contributing much-needed items to our preschool ministry. We have created a list of children’s classroom items which will directly benefit our little ones in the days, weeks, and months ahead. If the spirit moves you to help, please feel free to send new or gently used items to Bethany Lutheran Preschool, 621 S Orchard Ave, Vacaville, CA 95688. Gift cards are always welcomed as well as an option to purchase items.

Thank you for the important part you play in our body of Christ, for the love and generosity you have shown us, and for your prayerful support through this difficult challenge.

In HIS Service Always,
Dr. Chris E. Smith, Principal
