Mission Statement

Curriculum Subjects in the curriculum of Bethlehem Lutheran School are presented in the context of a Christian perspective and are supplemented by regular instruction in Biblical teachings and Lutheran doctrine. Subject areas include religion, reading, language arts, spelling, mathematics, social studies, science, physical education, art, music, foreign language, and computer. Confirmation instruction is given in the seventh and eighth grades. Residential outdoor education laboratory experience (off site) is provided in the sixth grade.

Curriculum – Junior High Specials Students in junior high have some choice of special classes. Each student is required to have one year of a performance music class, one year of art, one year of foreign language that is offered, and two years of physical education. All special classes are year-long classes.

Music Policy Bethlehem Lutheran School values students receiving music instruction as part of the school day. Music teachers for piano and guitar will continue to teach at Bethlehem Lutheran School. However, a student will only be allowed out of class for one lesson a week during the school day on the specified day and time of a lesson. For example, if a student is in band, that is his/her lesson for the week. Additional lessons in piano or guitar may be taken, but they must be done before or after school, on early release afternoons, or staff development days.

Students in Grades 7 and 8 must choose choir, handbells or band for one year. None of these requirements may be fulfilled by taking piano or instrumental lessons. The requirement needs to be a performance group sponsored by the school, for which the student receives a grade.
