“Bethel the Beautiful”

Bethel the Beautiful, Bethel the Best

Lovely she lies below fair mountain crests.

Standing for truth and right, faithful she’ll be,

We pledge our loyalty, Bethel to thee.

“Bethel the Beautiful” is Bethel Elementary’s School song. It was sung at the school’s opening ceremony in 1954 and continues to be sung at our new campus that opened in 2007. The song is learned in Kindergarten and is sung by students throughout their elementary school days. Bethel the Beautiful is a school tradition and students sing it proudly at special occasions.


Bethel Elementary School:     Established 1954.

New School Built:     2007

When it was time to lay the foundation of our new facility in 2006, students carefully selected a special rock that they placed one by one in the foundation.
