Bethel School District has begun the process of testing the drinking water in all of our schools. This is in response to concerns raised around the country about the possibility of lead in school drinking water.

An independent professional environmental service, PBS Engineering + Environmental is taking water samples from all potential sources of drinking water in every building. It will take eight days to complete the water collection.

Because of the heightened awareness and large number of sources being tested around the state, results may take Continue reading

Kalapuya Grads Set New Records

Kalapuya's graduating class begins to celebrate at the conclusion of their commencement ceremony.

Kalapuya’s graduating class begins to celebrate at the conclusion of their commencement ceremony.

The Kalapuya High School class of 2016 has been celebrated in a commencement ceremony that featured personal recognition of all 32 graduates.

The bar keeps getting set higher by each successive year of Kalapuya seniors. This year’s graduating class established school records for the number of combined college credits earned and the amount of college scholarship money awarded.

Senior speeches were delivered by Cambria Jarrett, Jose Mora, Hanna Rodriguez and Mariah Sanchez. Many of the grads showed an impressive amount of determination after arriving at KHS with few high school credits.

Some persisted through a long climb toward graduation that included attending school as well as night school, while working at jobs and caring for family members.

Congratulations to the KHS class of 2016!

Willamette Celebrates Class of 2016

Willamette seniors send their mortar boards skyward at the conclusion of their graduation ceremony.

For the 67th time in Bethel School District history, Willamette High School has celebrated its graduating seniors.

In front of a packed house in Wolverine Stadium, 270 seniors walked across the stage to receive their diplomas.

The commencement ceremony included performances by students, emotional speeches, and mortar boards sent flying to conclude the event.

Willamette’s seniors will move on to careers, college – including Princeton – and the military. But as speaker Barry Bokn reminded them, once a Wolverine always a Wolverine.

 

Bethel School District To Test Drinking Water

Bethel School District has proactively chosen to test the water in all of our schools, responding to concerns raised throughout the country about the possibility of lead in school drinking water.

Bethel has already hired an independent professional environmental service to begin testing as soon as school is out for summer. This will allow the professionals to access our water sources without interruption in order to ensure the most accurate testing.

Rather than random sampling, our tests will be conducted on all potential sources of drinking water in every building, leaving no room for doubt. The samples may take at least 10 business days to process but the results will be immediately shared with families and staff.

While there are no federal or state requirements that schools test their water, we do consider the safety of staff and the students entrusted to our care as our highest priority.
