This event hosted roughly 200 underclassmen, who were introduced to the concept of distracted driving and good precedents to later apply to their lives as drivers.

Holiday Bazaar opens Dec. 6

Article By: BETHLEHEM CATHOIC NEWS Mary Frances Scheidel - Holiday preparations


Bethlehem Catholic students are settling into the second quarter and looking ahead to Christmas break – making it ironic that the first snow days of the year came around less than two weeks after the quarter had begun. The weather interrupted an in-school retreat and the final day of Thanksgiving food drive collections; however, charitable students were not deterred. Efforts will be increased to collect food and other necessary items for less fortunate residents of the area before Christmas.
