Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 6:30pm. The main topics will be School Choice and the formulation of a Building Committee. After many months of prayer, research, and discussion, the School Board and Church Council agreed unanimously to proceed with the School Choice beginning with the 202-2021 school year. It is now up to the Voters to decide on this resolution, found HERE as well as on the credenza in the gathering area. All voting members are encouraged to attend. All are welcome to sit in on the meeting.
FOR MORE INFO AND MORE RESOURCES,
SCHOOL CLOSING INFORMATION
The time is approaching when inclement weather may become an issue. Star of Bethlehem will always follow the New Berlin School District with school cancellations due to weather or bussing issues, late starts, or early dismissals. If New Berlin closes, so does Star. We may still, however, post Star of Bethlehem’s status on TV (WISN12 and TMJ4) and online at WISN.com and tmj4.com. We will also use this communication tool for after school activity cancellations. If there is early dismissal, we will follow the directions provided on the school registration form and either send your child home on the bus or keep your child in Extended Care until he or she can be picked up. If you do not remember which you stated, please call the office at 262-786-290.
