Dear Bethel-Tate students, parents and community:
On August 22nd, more than 1,900 students in grades kindergarten through 12th grade, walked through the front doors of their schools to begin the school year. In doing so, all of these students are taking advantage of a multitude of wonderful educational opportunities provided by the taxpayers in our district.
This year, by virtue of our students’ outstanding academic success, the district has earned the distinction of being honored with the designation of Excellent with Distinction by the state of Ohio for the second year in a row. Bethel-Tate is one of only two districts in Clermont County to receive this designation in 2011. It is certainly a reason to celebrate. The Middle School was also named “Most Outstanding Middle School in Ohio” by Making Middle Grades Work of the High Schools at Work Association. The school was honored nationally in Tennessee this past summer for their achievement.
The start of each school year is exciting because of the energy our students, staff, parents and community members bring to it — and all the possibilities that working together provides. Our school district excels above many others because our parents, teachers, staff and community do a remarkable job of supporting our students and setting high expectations.
The school district’s commitment to the community we serve is to love and care about our students, and to do everything we can to ensure each student’s academic and extracurricular success. We want our students to know how much it matters to us that they possess character, integrity and purpose for their lives.
We know that our students will someday graduate and leave our district. In doing so, we want to have confidence that we have prepared them well to be trustworthy, hard-working, wise and capable of honorable service to their family, community and nation.
All the best as we begin a new school year!
