The Extra Need-To Knows


Board of Schools

Bethany Lutheran Preschool is governed by a Board of School.  Members of the Board of Schools are as follows:

2022-2023 School Year Board:

  • Kent Ryskamp (Chair)
  • Sunny Esso (Vice Chair)
  • Cindy Morlok (Secretary)
  • Chris Armendariz
  • Debbie Castlen
  • Josh Kienitz


Parents are urged not to let questions or misunderstandings accumulate. Please speak with the teacher before the matter becomes a source of irritation. A personal conversation or a phone call will usually clear up any misunderstanding. Feel free to leave “call back” messages with the preschool director. Questions not resolved after speaking with the teacher should be taken to the preschool director. The preschool director will ask if the teacher has been talked to first. If not, usually a 3 party meeting will be set up including the parent(s), teacher, and preschool director. If further consideration is desired, it should be placed in writing and directed to the Board of Schools.
Parents who wish to attend a Board of Schools meeting are very welcome to do so. Board meetings are held on the 1st Tuesday of each month. Requests to attend a Board meeting, or for agenda time, should be submitted in writing to the preschool office before the previous Friday.

To summarize this process:
1. Arrange a time to speak to the teacher about any issue as quickly as possible.
2. If the issue remains unresolved after speaking to the teacher, speak to the preschool director.
3. If the issue still remains unresolved, the parent may want to take the matter to the Board of Schools
