Bethel Elementary School Iva  rverychild. our voice  Dear Bethel Elementary School Families,  Welcome back from your Bethel Bears PTA! Your PTA executive board officers have been busy! We have been planning for the school year and have been searching for ways to support our staff, students, and Bethel community. Currently, we have our first few spirit nights scheduled for 9/23 and 11/18 at Your Pie Pizza here in Gloucester from 4pm to 8 pm. We will also be selling our school merchandise and we will have prizes to win at the prize wheel! Your Pie Pizza will give us a percentage of all of the sales to go towards our events and to enrich the lives of the students and staff. I am honored to introduce your 2021-2022 PTA executive board. These women have been working tirelessly to plan some amazing events for the students and staff.
