Free Breakfast and Lunch for all Bethune Elementary Students! (free lunch letter)



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!


  • School hours are 7:40am to 2:20pm. Students are tardy if they are not in their classes by 7:40am.

  • The school building opens for business at 7:10am for students. Help us keep your children safe by not dropping them off before 7:10am as they are unsupervised.

  • Breakfast time is from 7:10am to 7:35am. Please make sure your child is at school on time to receive a no cost breakfast each day.

  • All visitors must report to the front office to check in per Fulton County Guidelines. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Five Consecutive Years Making AYP

Fulton County School District 


This strategic plan is the roadmap for how
Fulton County Schools aims to improve student achievement over the next five years. Three goals serve as the district's measure for long-term student success:

90% of Fulton students will graduate
on time.

85% of Fulton's seniors will be eligible
for admission to a University System
of Georgia college or university.

100% of Fulton's graduates will be
work-ready certified.

This plan will only work when all parts of the community, staff, and stakeholders are aligned. Our hope from this presentation is that you will walk away understanding our key commitment to children and how we plan to get there.
