You Are Part of the Family 


When school let out for Spring Break on March 13, were you looking for some good quality family time together? Did you take a trip to enjoy the free time you had? Did you expect that you would be with your children in your home for three weeks straight with at least four more to come?  
We definitely have a lot of family time. So what are you going to do with it? First of all, let us remember, that we are part of God’s family. Jesus came to earth to pay for our sins through his suffering, death, and resurrection. He did this so that we might be his own and live under him in his kingdom and serve him. Paul reminds us of what it means to be part of God’s family. He says, “Therefore, as we have the opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers,” Galatians 6:10.
Doing good to all people means you can do things as a family each day for the next month which will be good for all involved. Have a family devotion each morning or evening. There are some good devotional materials online. Check out:
wels.net/serving-you/devotions/timeofgrace.org/ or for children  bethanykenosha.org/minuteswithjesus.  
On Wednesday afternoon or evening watch an online meditation such as youtube.com/channel/UCunhd3nNtUe-14RvFXK_BjQ/videos. On Sunday, be sure to watch the Kenosha Lutheran Worship Service online bethanykenosha.org/online. All of these sites give you an opportunity to grow in faith together as a family.
Doing good to all people means during the online schooling time you can check each day that your children are completing their online lessons. If they are having difficulty, you can be there to assist them in understanding the lesson. Your children in-turn can assist you with daily chores around the house. Maybe you can clean the garage or the basement. Perhaps there is a painting project that they can with which they can assist. During the next week or two, you might want to rake the yard as a family.
There are other activities that will help the family grow closer like teaching your child how to cook if they are old enough. Perhaps together you can build something like a birdhouse. Maybe you can have a story night where mom and dad share stories from when they were younger. Game night always is a chance to develop camaraderie.
There is a lot of stress in the world during this time of COVID-19. Instead of watching the news and letting the anxiety build up in you and your children, try some activities that bring your family closer together. Finally, are there opportunities you have to reach out to others with a face time phone call, or a sending a card, or in some other way? Now is the perfect time to reflect and look for ways to grow closer as a family.

Update: Kingfish Reading Program Due Dates 


Due to all the changes that have happened recently, the Kingfish have made adjustments to the Lil Fish Reading Program. 
If the season begins on May 26, as scheduled, our Bethany Night will remain on June 9th. However, if the Kingfish schedule changes, there may be a change of date. They will let us know immediately with an updated schedule and information.
The Kingfish are now opening the invitation to EVERYONE in the school community, not just those who meet the reading goal. EVERY SCHOOL FAMILY is now allowed 2 FREE tickets per student and the discounted $9 ticket price for any additional tickets. 
Those students who already handed in their reading logs have received the prizes (Culvers free scoop coupon, temporary tattoos, and a free game in the Kid's Zone) at school. Those who email their completed reading logs to me at beths@bethanykenosha.org will receive the prizes when we see each other again. The deadline for submitting ticket orders has been extended to Friday, May 15. Order forms and payment can be mailed directly to the Kingfish office at:
Kenosha Kingfish
Attn: Lauren Baca
7817 Sheridan Road
Kenosha, WI 53143 
Checks should be made out to the Kenosha Kingfish. 
Those who prefer to pay with a credit card can call and order over the phone at 262-653-0900. All tickets will be available at Will Call on the day of the game.
If timing changes, we will contact our Bethany families as soon as possible with the update. If you have any questions, contact Beth Sternhagen at beths@bethanykenosha.org.

Musical Practice 


As of right now, the musical is on hold and we hope to have an update sometime in in mid April.
If you would like to continue to practice, a public school created this site, and it has all the song tracks in two forms - sing-a-long and karaoke. 

100th Year Anniversary 


The Anniversary Committee will be contacting people to help fill out the committees so that we can properly prepare for the special day on November 8. If you would like to assist or know more, contact the 100th Anniversary committee which consists of Pastor Pagel, Mr. Schultz, Steve Dankert, Miss Sternhagen, and Miss Petermann. One way in which you might assist is by looking through photo albums for pictures that involve Bethany Lutheran School over the years. If you share with us, please give the picture to us in a plastic bag and label the picture clearly on the back that it belongs to you. We want to set up displays on the dinner tables with pictures over the years.
