Open Enrollment Now Underway
Open Enrollment is a school choice option for students. Bethel School District has opened its doors to students from any district, regardless of traditional school district boundaries.
A stage light that was somehow turned into a curtain caused a small fire in Powers Auditorium at Willamette High School Monday night.
The brief incident forced the evacuation of the auditorium shortly before a scheduled Cascade Middle School band concert.
By the time firefighters arrived the flames had been extinguished thanks to the quick action of the event’s auditorium manager Tom Coates and Cascade’s assistant principal Dean Nussbaum.
The stage curtains will have to be replaced and the smoke exhausted from the auditorium, but no one was injured and the damage was relatively minor.
Spring cleaning means it’s time for Bethel’s School Surplus Sale, this Saturday, March 8th, 8:00-2:00 at Cascade Middle School.
The giant garage sale will include chairs, desks, file cabinets, book cases, dividers, rolling carts, science equipment, overhead projectors and other school-related odds and ends…even some kitchen sinks.
None of the equipment is currently being used by the school district and storage space is running out.
All proceeds will benefit the Bethel Education Foundation.
Thank a Classified staff member this week! The District could not operate without them.
Classified employees are essential to the success of Bethel students, working directly with kids, parents, other educators, volunteers, and community members.
As vital members of the Bethel family, Classified staff are instrumental in every facet of the District; transporting our children, assisting in the classroom, producing delicious and healthy meals, maintaining all our facilities, providing materials, assisting classroom teachers, and more.
Bethel’s Classified staff should be honored every day, but we officially celebrate them this week for the skill and dedication they bring on behalf of Bethel kids.
After months of reading and re-reading, Shasta’s Oregon Battle of the Books team has earned a spot in the state OBOB tournament.
Megan Mugleston, Linda Pham, Elana Ziler, Luke Strasdas and Jeff Mugleston read 16 OBOB-designated books and remembered countless details about each one.
It paid off with a very close second place finish in the regional OBOB tournament at Willamette High School, where Shasta lost by three points in overtime. It still qualified the team for state in Salem next month.
Under the guidance of coach Holly Hernandez, the Shasta team will be busy with more re-reading before the state OBOB battles.
