Which apple tastes best? The preschoolers know! They did apple tasting to find their favorite apple. 🍎🍏 They also are hard at work practicing with scissors. ✂️ And Webby Dance is a favorite extra-curricular on Fridays!

October is Dyslexia Awareness Month.
We are blessed at Bethany Lutheran School to have the Student Success Program - for 20 years Mrs. Moorman and her staff have been making a difference in literacy intervention for children with dyslexia and other learning differences. The SSP Program provides early screening, identification, support, and one-on-one evidence-based reading and spelling instruction.
Each Monday in October we will be highlighting both the Student Success Program at Bethany Lutheran, and sharing about Dyslexia. Follow along!
