Farewell and Thank You!!
The last day of school- June 18- marked the end of my 14th year at Clear Lake. I’m so proud of the staff, students, and families who have passed through the school and supported Clear Lake and Bethel. Remember that education and knowledge are the keys to attaining whatever you wish in life- it just takes hard work and follow-through to make it happen. And it starts with the first day of Kindergarten…

The Grade 1-2 P.E.T.S. Music show


Grade 1-2 P.E.T.S. Musical Was Purrrrrfect!
Students from grades 1 & 2 performed a variety of songs and played instruments for their families in the P.E.T.S. Musical (People Everywhere Treasure Snuggles). Whether four-legged, two-legged, or no-legged (those wonderful reptiles!!), students celebrated the love of having pets that typically are part of the family. It was a packed house and another great show created by our fantastic music teacher- Lori Kelley.

Message From Superintendent on Teacher Walkout

I want to bring your attention to action planned by the Eugene Education Association that will impact our schools in Bethel on Wednesday, May 8, 2019. You may have already heard about this in the media.

This is what we know. In an effort to rally support for increased funding for K-12 education, Eugene Education Association leadership in Bethel has indicated that the majority of licensed school staff have pledged to a “walkout” and therefore will not show up for work on Wednesday, May 8th. They will instead be attending rallies in Eugene and at the state capitol. It will not be possible to find enough substitute teachers to cover all classrooms and safely operate schools, so we will have no choice but to close all Bethel schools for the day. The district will approach this event like a snow day, with only essential staff reporting to work, such as building front office staff, administrators, custodians and maintenance staff.

The district fully understands the intent of the actions planned for May 8th, but we also have the important daily responsibility of educating, guiding, feeding, and transporting 5,400 students. The walkout will create a hardship for families and the district cannot sponsor or support this action. We also know our educators are caring individuals who are completely dedicated to their students, and they want increased funding to better support all students. Eugene Education Association has been transparent in their intentions for May 8th, giving time for parents/guardians to make arrangements for their child’s care on this day.

Exceptions:

  • The District will work with preschool programs and school-based child care providers who will communicate directly with families regarding operating on this day
  • IB testing at WHS will take place as scheduled
  • After school youth sports schedules will not be interrupted
  • Principal John Luhman will send out information regarding other events and programs specific to Clear Lake that are scheduled for May 8th

This missed school day will not be made up at the end of the school year in June. The make-up snow days from February have extended the school year beyond what is normally scheduled and Continue reading

Changes Coming To Clear Lake

Hello Clear Lake Families,

There will be a few changes for the 2019 – 2020 school year at Clear Lake.

Some of you know by now that I will be leaving Clear Lake at the end of this school year. My wife and I are moving to North Carolina to be near our daughter. It’s something we have discussed for some time and have finally decided to make this major move.

It has been my pleasure to have served as Clear Lake’s principal for the last 14 years. It has been incredibly rewarding to know hundreds of families and watch their children grow. I am also blessed to have worked with an outstanding staff. Clear Lake educators are caring, dedicated, noble and very smart; they are truly invested in your children’s long-term success.

Taking over at Clear Lake will be Karyn Bayer. The two of us might pass along the highway because she’s returning to her native Oregon after having worked as a school administrator in Virginia the last three years. Karyn is fluent in Spanish, has a strong background in instruction, and is dedicated to involving families in their children’s education. We believe she will be a great fit for Clear Lake students, families and staff. You will be hearing from Karyn this summer.

Second, the school hours will return to what they had been for many years. Starting in September, 2019, school will begin at 8:55 each day, and end at 2:55. It’s a 10 minute shift from what we have now, and will ease the auto & bus congestion at the end of the day.
