Summer vacation includes time in school for more than 150 of Bethel’s youngest students.
Kids who just finished Kindergarten through 2nd grade have been invited to take part in the five week program to improve reading and math skills in small group settings.
The four-day-a-week program had been on hiatus for the past four years due to budget cuts.
Summer school, being held at Prairie Mountain School, includes free breakfast and lunch.
Bethel is also offering summer classes for high schoolers who need to catch up on credits.
Bethel students offer answers to that mystery question: What do principals do every day?
Eugene police used Danebo Elementary as a training site on Wednesday.
The school was off-limits to the public while the SWAT team conducted the drills.
Eugene police often use public facilities for trainings and Bethel School District was happy to offer Danebo for the one-day drills.
40 students received diplomas and flipped their tassles as graduates of Kalapuya High School.
The 40 grads is the most in school history.
These students had all arrived at KHS behind on credits or out of school completely. Kalapuya was a fit for them when a traditional comprehensive high school wasn’t.
Many combined a full day of classes at Kalapuya with KHS night school or internships in the community to get caught up. Some stayed for a 5th year.
Congratulations to the KHS class of 2015, whose hard work and determination has paid off.
