Bethune Elementary is making the transition to the Fulton County Charter System during the 2013-2014 school year as part of "Cohort 2." This year is considered a planning year. We have established the Bethune Elementary School Governance Council (SGC).
We are pleased that Project Wisdom is part of our day! Project Wisdom is a collection of daily messages that are rich in history, culture, and literature. These words of wisdom inspire, teach, and they encourage reflection on topics such as integrity, respect, confidence, courage, and honesty. The program serves as a positive influence by helping to reduce disciplinary problems, promoting a caring learning environment, and encouraging children to make wiser choices. Project Wisdom's daily announcements will be broadcast school-wide each day. Ask your child what the message was today!
