Principal's Corner

From the desk of Principal Woods....


Dear Families,

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! It is my great honor to serve as the principal of Bethune Community School. I have had the pleasure of working for Minneapolis Public Schools for the last 21 years as a teacher, instructional coach, assistant principal and as a principal at Northrop Community School before coming to Bethune.

I am very passionate about children and have the strong belief that all children can learn.  My vision for Bethune is to make this the best place for children. I am committed to creating an environment where all members of our community are inspired to contribute to the academic and social growth of every student. 

I am honored to have the opportunity to work with you so that we can meet the needs of your child.  My main goal is to support the students, families and staff of this wonderful community.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.

I am excited for the amazing year of learning ahead of us!


Kelly Woods, Principal
