Dozens of students from all grade levels were recognized in front of the entire school at Willamette’s annual Academic Awards assembly.
Staged in the school gym so all students could attend, the awards honored top students in every department at Willamette including math, language arts, foreign languages, music, science, and the many career technical education programs.
Senior students were also recognized for their advanced endorsements, International Baccalaureate achievements, and college scholarships.
Graduation for the Class of 2015 is Friday, June 5th.
Performing on stage to thundering applause in the Wildish Theater in Springfield, students in Bethel’s Community Transition Network (BCTN) program took part in the 2nd annual Community Transition Program Talent Show.
Bethel’s students performed the Thriller dance with flashing lights and clouds of dry ice as the closing act to the variety show.
BCTN is a Bethel program for students ages 18-21 who have a variety of intellectual and cognitive disabilities. BCTN prepares them to enter the adult world.
The goal is for each individual to make a smooth transition from school services to successfully meeting the challenges of everyday living with defined supports in place.

Two dozen high-quality bike helmets have been donated to students at Prairie Mountain School, courtesy of the local Corson & Johnson law firm.
The firm was looking for ways to help the community and knew one method of keeping kids safe is to provide bike helmets.
Al Hongo of Paul’s Bicycle Way Of Life came to Prairie Mountain to properly fit the students who received a new, free bike helmet.
Thanks to Corson & Johnson and Paul’s for their generous support for kids in our community.
