Bethel Fall Bash
Do-si-do your partners! Now promenade!
Come on and get cozy by a Fall fire and melt a mallow for s’mores. We’re so excited to announce our first annual Bethel Fall Bash. The students have been practicing a dance routine this month. And if warm and cozy isn’t your game, whet your competitive edge in the Bake Off or Pumpkin Carving Competition.
Cost: $5 per Bethel Family. $3/person for non-Bethel families. This pays for food and activities during the event.
Who's it for: Feel free to invite your friends and families! Just don't forget to RSVP on the Facebook PTO event - when you post please let me how many people are coming.

A note about the square dancing:
Students have been practicing a dance that they will perform during the evening. The coveted “Extra Break” Award will be given to the best class of dancers, but don’t worry. There are prizes for those that dare to go the glory of the solo. (And yes, this includes parents...)
Bake off Rules
All items must be homemade. No mixes or buying from store allowed. :)
All entries must have the recipe attached or it will not be accepted.
The item must be fully baked and ready to serve.
Please do not bring add-ons to your recipes. For example, cookies should not have accompanying “dips,” and breads should not have accompanying “butters” or “spreads.” This is a bake off competition and are looking to specifically judge the “baked” goods. Have your dish prepared for the judge. If something is to be added, it should be a part of the specific dish, not something the judge is expected to “add on” ie. frosting is acceptable as it is prepared on a cupcake, while butter is not, as the judge would need to “add” it to the dish.
