Willamette seniors will be wearing their caps and gowns as they walk through the hallways of Bethel’s nine feeder schools, celebrating their upcoming graduation.
The first annual Bethel Grad Walk is an opportunity for Wil-Hi seniors to show their appreciation for the staff in Bethel schools who helped them reach graduation, and to inspire the district’s younger students to dream of college after graduating from Willamette.
The June 1st event is the first of its kind in Bethel. Willamette’s graduation is set for Friday, June 10th.
All families are invited to take part in the annual Bethel Multicultural Fair Friday, May 20, from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
The event at Prairie Mountain School is free and showcases some of the many cultures within our Bethel community.
You can anticipate an evening of food, entertainment, and information brought to us through the collaboration of Bethel families, staff, and local organizations.
Facing difficult circumstances and sometimes incredible setbacks, these Bethel students have managed to overcome significant obstacles to become successful in school and beyond.
They have turned things around and are now winners of the annual Turnaround Achievement Awards.
Created by Colleen and Mike Bellotti of UO football fame, the 21st annual Turnaround Achievement Awards recognize local middle and high school students who have overcome adversity to achieve their goals.
Cody Melton, Cascade; Nyah Hammond, Meadow View; Austyn Wright, Prairie Mountain; Indiana Hash, Shasta; Trey Dougherty, Kalapuya; and Kennedy Brown, Willamette each received a plaque at a special awards luncheon.
It’s meaningful and well-deserved recognition for the students, and a sign of more good things to come.
This is a sale the community eagerly anticipates every year.
Hundreds of vegetable starts, flower pots and hanging flower baskets will be sold Saturday from 10:00-2:00 in a Mother’s Day sale at Kalapuya High School.
All proceeds go back into the KHS Horticulture program.
Saturday’s event will also offer high-grade compost sold by the Bethel Education Foundation. The Love Food Not Waste compost is made from food waste, some of which comes from Bethel school cafeterias. A raffle will also be offered for some outstanding prizes.
Students have used Kalapuya High School’s professional quality greenhouse to grow the plants using organic methods, with seed donations from Territorial Seed and donations of soil from Aurora Innovations.
