Bethlehem Elementary Preps for Spring Break 2012
Barrow County teachers try their best to stave off the throes of spring fever.
It’s likely that this week will seem excruciatingly long for many Barrow County students, teachers and administrators.
With spring break 2012 set to begin promptly once the final bell rings at the end of the school day Friday, April 13, teachers at Bethlehem Elementary and other schools peppered throughout the county will have their work cut out for them over the coming days as they attempt to ward off symptoms of spring fever in their students — and themselves.
Between the final days of Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests, or CRCTs, two days devoted to making up CRCTs that were missed and an always fun field day on Friday, students at Bethlehem Elementary are promised a jam-packed week of educational and recreational distractions. Their well-deserved spring-themed escape from the hallowed halls of their school officially runs April 16 through 20 — a full two weeks after most Georgia counties have already commemorated their spring breaks.
Once they return to school the week of April 23, Bethlehem Elementary students will hit the ground running as they make their way toward the last day of school on May 22. Events scheduled for the week of their return include:
- April 23 through 27 — Spring Book Fair
- April 24 — Teacher/Staff Appreciation Day
- April 26 — Fifth graders visit Haymon-Morris Middle School
- April 26 — Multi Cultural Night at 6:30 p.m.
- April 27 — All Pro Dads Day
- April 27 — Multi Cultural Parade at 1:45 p.m.
- April 27 — I Can! Dinner at 6:30 p.m.
