recognized for their hard work and achievements.

Families, students and staff are to be commended for the way they adjusted to this new educational
delivery system, and for their efforts to make it succeed during the most uncertain of times.

Whether instruction in the 2020-2021 school year will be held in school,
online or a combination of both, the Bethel Park School
District will be ready to move forward with a
meaningful education program that will provide every
student with the opportunity to learn, grow and
prepare for a successful future.

      on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and
       you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
