2018-19 Registration Information

Important: School Registration Alert

We are excited to announce that school registration will be online for the upcoming school year. The system is secure and the process will be easy. There will be no more crowding into the school on registration day or stacks of papers to manage.

You will be able to:

  • Quickly verify current information if your child is already a Bethel student
  • Update emergency contacts, medical information, addresses, phone numbers, etc.
  • Electronically sign health and permission forms and other required documents

This online process will replace all the hard copy student registration and permission forms that you used to sort through each year.

When it is time to register online in August, you will receive a letter or email from Cascade Middle School with instructions on how to access the system for your child. The letter or email will contain a link with instructions and a secure “snapcode” that links directly to your student’s information. You will create an account that you will use each year for this process. To make the process easier for families with multiple children in Bethel, you will have the option to apply all generic family information for all children in your family.

Those who do not have access to the Internet will be welcomed to come to Cascade Middle School and use a school computer to complete the registration process.

Meanwhile, watch for a letter or email this August with all the instructions and your snapcode.

If you have questions, please contact the school office at 541-688-9611.


Importante: Alerta de registro escolar

Nos complace anunciar que el registro escolar estará en línea para el próximo año escolar. El sistema es seguro y el proceso será fácil. No habrá más hacinamiento en la escuela el día de la inscripción o montones de papeles para administrar.

Usted será capaz de:

  • Verifique rápidamente la información actual si su hijo ya es un estudiante de Bethel
  • Actualizar contactos de emergencia, información médica, direcciones, números de teléfono, etc.
  • Firmar electrónicamente formularios de salud y permiso y otros documentos requeridos

Este proceso en línea reemplazará todos los formularios impresos de registro y permiso de los estudiantes que solía clasificar cada año.

Cuando llegue el momento de registrarse en línea en agosto, recibirá una carta o correo electrónico de Cascade Middle School con instrucciones sobre cómo acceder al sistema para su hijo. La carta o correo electrónico contendrá un enlace con instrucciones y un “snapcode” seguro que enlaza directamente con la información de su estudiante.

Creará una cuenta que usará cada año para este proceso. Para que el proceso sea más fácil para las familias con niños múltiples en Bethel, tendrá la opción de aplicar toda la información familiar genérica para todos los niños de su familia.

Aquellos que no tengan acceso a Internet serán bienvenidos a visitar Cascade Middle School y usar una computadora escolar para completar el proceso de registro.

Mientras tanto, busca una carta o un correo electrónico este agosto con todas las instrucciones y tu código de acceso.

Si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese con la oficina de la escuela al 541-688-9611.

Message to Families and Track Meet Today

Hi, families! We have a track meet today at the Willamette High School track. It begins at 4:30. If your student is participating, please encourage sunscreen and water – it will be a hot one today on the field! 

Thank you and good luck to our athletes! We are proud of their hard work and dedication.

Also, please encourage your students for the last few days of the read-a-thon! We really want to get a few more bucks out of this fundraiser. I know our 6th and 7th grade groups are in a tight race for the winning grade!


A message to our families:

Hi Cascade Families,

We want you to be aware of the return of a series produced by Netflix called 13 Reasons Why, which is again getting the attention of students in our community. The fictional story revolves around a 17-year-old girl who takes her own life and leaves behind audio recordings for 13 people who, she believes, were part of why she made the tragic choice to commit suicide.

Just as in Season One last spring, we suspect that students are watching this program with and without parent permission. We are not promoting the series, but we are encouraging you to talk openly and honestly about emotional distress, self-harm, and suicide. Discussing this subject will not make someone more suicidal or put the idea of suicide in their mind.

Some suicide prevention experts are concerned about the potential risks posed by sensationalizing self-harm and youth suicide. Suicide should not be glamorized; it is preventable.  13 Reasons Why mostly misses the fact that common among most suicide deaths is the presence of treatable mental illnesses.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or our school counselor, Shannon Witty. Here is a link to guidance for families from the National Association of School Psychologists Link

Hola Cascade Familias,

Queremos que se dé cuenta del regreso de una serie producida por Netflix llamada 13 Razones por las que vuelve a llamar la atención de los estudiantes de nuestra comunidad. La historia ficticia gira en torno a una niña de 17 años que se quita la vida y deja grabaciones de audio para 13 personas que, cree ella, fueron parte de por qué tomó la trágica decisión de suicidarse.Al igual que en la temporada uno, la primavera pasada, sospechamos que los estudiantes están viendo este programa con y sin el permiso de los padres. No estamos promocionando la serie, pero lo alentamos a que hable abierta y honestamente sobre angustia emocional, autolesiones y suicidio. Discutir este tema no hará que alguien sea más suicida o tenga en mente la idea del suicidio.Algunos expertos en prevención de suicidios están preocupados por los riesgos potenciales que plantea la autolesión sensacionalista y el suicidio juvenil. El suicidio no debe ser glamoroso; es prevenible 13 Razones por las que en su mayoría se pierde el hecho de que, entre la mayoría de las muertes por suicidio, es común la presencia de enfermedades mentales tratables.Si tiene alguna pregunta, no dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo o con nuestro consejero escolar, Shannon Witty.
