Bethel Bond Brings More Improvements

The bond measure that Bethel voters overwhelmingly passed in November 2012 continues to provide promised improvements throughout the district.

  • Thousands of new Math textbooks will be delivered soon for all students in every school.
  • New pour-in-place soft playground surfaces have been installed at Danebo, Clear Lake and Irving elementary schools.
  • New energy efficient windows and doors are going in at Shasta Middle School.
  • Carpet has been installed at Irving, Shasta and Willamette High School.
  • Willamette’s cafeteria is being remodeled for improved atmosphere and efficiency.
  • The restrooms at WHS are undergoing a long-awaited renovation.
  • The well-used gym floors at Willamette are being repaired and refinished.
  • Preserving our facilities, a new roof is being installed over the entire Math wing at Wil-Hi.

Soon to come are security fencing at Willamette, Shasta, Danebo and Irving, all thanks to voters who approved the the Bethel bond with a 73% Yes vote.

Bethel School District has lived up to its word.

The district promised frugal use of taxpayer dollars to build attractive, efficient, long-lasting and effective places for kids to learn, and that is what is being delivered.

After more than a year of construction Bethel’s new school buildings are ready for students.

Ribbon-cutting celebrations are scheduled for Malabon and Fairfield Elementary Schools Thursday, September 3rd. Each school is combining the ceremony with its annual Meet The Teacher Night; Malabon’s at 5:30 and Fairfield’s at 6:30.

Both events are open to the public, with an opportunity to tour the beautiful new schools.

The ribbon-cutting for Willamette’s new science and office complex drew a large crowd, with students mingling in the building with long-time community members.

Final touches are taking place at all the schools, with landscaping being the last phase of the projects to be completed.

The Countdown Has Begun

It is only a matter of weeks until Bethel’s new schools open up to students. And there was a milestone event that took place at the very top of one school. Construction project manager Pat Bradshaw takes you there.

Demolition At Fairfield

Ribbon cutting for the new Fairfield Elementary School is September 3. Until then, crews will be busy finishing off the new building and taking down the old school. Here’s a time lapse video of the start of demolition, beginning with the elementary wing.
