Memphis City Schools



Parent and teacher organizations should be made mandatory in every school. Studies have shown involvement is a very important part of the learning process. Bethel Grove School is a school that is committed to help build hopes and dreams. The PTO is a part of that dream team. Parents can come in and tutor children, work as mentors, or just come by to read a book to a classroom. Our PTO is learning new ways to become an effective part of the community. We encourage each and every parent to join your PTO and become actively involved with your child's school.


Bethel Grove participates in the Adopt-A-School Partners in Education program. Bethel Grove's adopters are Greater Middle Baptist Church, City of Memphis, St. Luke Baptist Church, Monument of Love Baptist Church, and The Airways-Lamar Business Association.


Dads of Great Students is an innovative program focusing on the prevention of violence in our school. The positive influence of our fathers provides presence of security and a positive and active role-model for children at the school. Fathers, stepfathers, and grandfathers are asked to spend at least one day at school volunteering as security monitors, reading mentors, listening ears, or for whatever needs to be done to plant seeds of success in the lives of our children.


Our Parent Resource Room provides materials and training for parents to work with their children at home to improve achievement. Literacy training and training in the use of technology are provided to foster parental involvement.


Parents are strongly encouraged to volunteer for tutoring, field trips, Career Day, Santa's Secret Workshop, Field Day, help in the library and classrooms, or just to show a pleasant face. Our goal is to bridge the gap between parent, school, and community and to improve relationships between home and school.
