Every family attending one of Bethel’s upcoming Kindergarten Orientation events will take home a new book courtesy of the Eugene Airport Rotary.
Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready For Kindergarten is a rhyming book designed to ease the worries of children (and parents) who are anxious about the first day of Kindergarten.
The Airport Rotary has purchased enough copies of the book for every new incoming Kindergartner, and has now prepared each book to hand out to kids.
Bethel’s Kindergarten Orientations, February 10-12, will introduce children and their families to plans for Full-Day Kindergarten this fall.
School tours are also available during the week of February 2nd.
Students need to have updated immunizations to avoid being excluded from school next month. The Bethel Health Center is ready to help with an Immunization Clinic, February 10th from 2:30-5:00 p.m.
Immunizations will be available for all students. The Health Center will bill insurance, or for those who are uninsured the Health Center will charge a fee by sliding scale.
Bring the student’s immunization records to the Bethel Student Health Center, located inside Cascade Middle School.
For more information, call 541-607-1430.
Among the many activities on next Monday’s Martin Luther King, Jr., Day is the annual MLK Day Bethel Chess Tournament. It’s free and open only to Bethel students.
The top two school teams from the K-8 level will earn free admission to the Lane and Douglas County Regional Chess for Success Tournament that will be hosted at Willamette on Feb. 21.
Other community-wide events on MLK Day include the annual Community March from PK Park (next to Autzen Stadium) to Downtown Eugene, beginning at 10:00.
Monday evening is the MLK Day Celebration at LCC’s main campus, starting at 6:30. Seating is limited so tickets are required to see keynote speaker Holly Robinson-Peete. For free tickets contact Greg Evans (Eugene City Councilor/LCC instructor/Bethel parent.)
