Winter Program

Bethune Academy families are invited to attend our annual Winter Program on Tuesday, December 9th at 7:00PM. There will be awesome musical performances for the whole family to enjoy.


Car Riders

Parents of Car Riders: Thank you for following our dismissal procedures. We have asked parents to pick up their children from the car rider area only. Car riders may not be checked out from the office for dismissal and they may not walk away from the school until their car rider number is called. This helps our staff ensure the safety of our children.
We are very proud of the students for memorizing their car rider number. This procedure is working very well. If you need a car rider number issued or replaced, please see the office staff.
