Bethany means recess-

Bethany Lutheran Church and School means a lot to me. Bethany means a lot to me and is important to me because I get to learn about Jesus and all of the stories in the bible and there are lots of great people here. I am so glad I go to Bethany because first, there are no bullies and mean people and it is a place where I get to feel loved and appreciated. I like that Bethany has a great educational program and still has recess in middle school! It is really funny when I go to gymnastics and tell people something fun I did at recess and they go “You still have recess! Lucky!” I love Bethany’s staff and students. This is my second family. Thank you all for everything you’ve done for me to make me a smart person and an example for the lower grades!
